Kalembera said Nyamilandu – a former football player for Be Forward Wanderers, University of Malawi and national football tema –  secured victory with 23 votes against  13 votes for Mwenda.

Nyamilandu, who has been FAM president for 15 years, stated that he wants to finish his projects and also to ensure that his term at Fifa Council runs simultaneously with his presidency at FAM so that the country can benefit through football development.

Congratulations Walter on your re-election for another term of office. This is no surprise considering the good football administration style that you’ve managed to achieve at FAM. Your positions at both CAF and FIFA are but proof of your football administration fluency.

I believe with the raising the bar initiative that you will soon be implementing, Malawi soccer will never be the same again. Once again congratulations Walter
