Be Forward Wanderers chairperson George Chamangwana has died.
“Wanderers Football Club is greatly saddened to announce the passing of our chairperson Mr George Chamangwana,” Mighty Wanderers vice-general secretary Chris Kananji said on Friday.
“All at the club send our deepest condolences toChamangwana’s family and friends and our players will wear black armbands in his memory during our next game.”
The Lali Lubani Road club added: “Wanderers was very close to George Chamangwana’s heart and he will always be close to ours.”
Chamangwana passed on at Blantyre Adventist Hospital where he was
admitted for a couple of days.
Kananji said Chamangwana has been unwell since the day Wanderers
played Silver Strikers in the Airtel Top 8 Cup final at the
Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
Meanwhile, Super League of Malawi has cancelled the match which Wanderers were scheduled to play their Blantyre rivals Nyasa Big Bullets this weekend following the death of Chamangwana.
Chamangwana played a vital role to secure sponsorship for Wanderers from Japan, the Be Forward company.
In his football playing days, Chamangwana played for Wanderers as a defender and also once coached the club before going into club management.
His elder brother, Jack Chamangwana is a technical director of the club.
