Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) is yet to audit two sport associations, before weaning out unproductive ones.
MNCS Board Chairperson, James Chuma, said the government was determined to prune associations that were yet to adapt to its reforms.
“You remember that a year ago I said much about the issue to do with the reforms. The government is doing a lot of things concerning the reforms in different sectors, not just sports. So, if associations are not ready to bring results to the government and stakeholders, we will have no option but to cut aid,” he said.
Chuma said MNCS’s audit team had done over 90 percent of the job and they were remaining with two more associations before making a decision.
“We have about 43 sport associations and we have conducted an audit for almost all sport codes. In the next few weeks, we will make a determination that these sport codes are serious and are following good management and development skills that are compatible with the agenda of the government on the reforms. Those that will fail will not be considered,” he said.
Last week, MNCS launched Malawi Sport Awards as a way of recognising outstanding athletes, administrators and teams.
