Walter falls, FA Malawi president fails bid on Fifa seat:  South Africa’s Motsepe elected CAF president

Football Associated of Malawi  (FAM) presiden  MacMillan Walter Nyamilandu Manda on Friday lost his FIFA Council seat for the Anglophone bloc  to Amaju Pinnick of Nigeria during the Confederation of African Football (CAF) elective conference in Rabat, Morocco.

FAM president Walter Nyamilandu lost in the polls

Amaju won convincingly after polling 48 votes against Nyamilandu’s miserable 8.

The results are a big blow to Nyamilandu who had hoped to continue after being on the seat for the last 2 years after he replaced Ghanaian Kwesi Nyantakyi who resigned in 2018 following corruption scandal.

Minister of Youth and Sports Ulemu Msungama said he did not endorse Nyamilandu because government was not officially aware of his candidature .

Meanwhile, South Africa’s Patrice Motsepe emerged as the President of CAF, taking over from Ahmad Ahmad.

“Africa needs collective wisdom, but also the exceptional talent and wisdom of every (national football association) president and every member nation,” he said.

“When we all work together, football in Africa will experience success and growth that it has not enjoyed in the past.”

Africa has suffered serious setbacks in recent years with all five qualifiers for the 2018 World Cup in Russia eliminated after the first round — the continent’s worst showing in 36 years.

Last November, Malagasy Ahmad Ahmad became the first CAF president to be banned by FIFA, with a five-year suspension for “governance issues” cut to two after appealing to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

We are not ready for international competitions, he always win locally because of bribes and poverty of Malawians however we need to get ready for such international positions in the near future. Your confidence to run for this position is what Malawians luck so bravo on that. In the future this shouldn’t be an individual effort but as a country we should plan to take up these positions on the international platform and fully support our representative.

Walter falls,miserable 8.Minister did not endorse.

We are a nation that does not wish our own well when they are on the international stage.Muluzi did not endorse Bingu at COMESA called him a thief.So many Malawians who need endorsement from their country never get it.

And our journalists report exactly showing how Malawians are callous.

We are a very sad people.

Good riddance

Your boy is useless. Even with endorsement he would have lost because he wasn’t performing. And the reason he didn’t get an endorsement is because he didn’t humble himself and contact the minister for endorsement

Congratulations for the loss and you can now rest in peace. I personally saw no value in his occupying that position. What remains now is Walter to voluntarily leave FAM. Malawi football has not benefited from his presidency. Kapande kwao, kwao.
