Yona Malunga cries foul as Kaliyapa elected Wanderers top fan

Mighty Wanderers Football Club on Saturday elected a new supporters committee at their Lali-Lubani Road club house in Chichiri in a peaceful election that saw youthful Yamikani Kaliyapa occupying the hot seat, replacing Dines Chitsulo, who did not contest.

Kaliyapa won the elections with a landslide after his main challenger Yona Malunga, former club chief supporter withdrew from the race., claiming there was no level playing field.

However, Wanderers supporters said flamboyant Malunga had sensed danger that he was going to have an embarrassing defeat.

The Nomads club trustees chair Rashy Gaffar said the elections were “free, fair and credible.”

He urged the fans to support the new committee.

In his acceptance speech, Kaliyapa said he would want to continue on the good legacy left by Chitsulo at Lali-Lubani like curbing violence and raising funds to help the club.

James Chiswankhondo was elected vice chairman withg 328 votes against Luka John’s 234 and General Chapotera’s 77 votes.

The supporters secretary Paul Mphepo was a big casualty as he lost his position to Wisdom Patel who will now be deputised by Helbert Mapira

Bushire Winto trounced former treasurer Chipiliro Chilambe and Anthony Chawanda with 339 votes against 17 and 102 votes respectively.

On the position of vice treasurer, Jimmy Muta won with 204 votes against Samuel Chikampana’s 101 and Foster Phiri’s 22 votes.

Helbert Mlaka, Phillip Master, Majid Julius, Charles Lizigen, Bright M’memo, Olivie Kandota and Batholomew Chimpango were voted in as executive committee members.

The club is expected to hold elections for its main executive committee next Saturday.

Below is the full supporters executive committee:
