30 coaches set for Caf B course


The long wait for the country’s 30 Caf C Coaching Licence holders to graduate to the next level is finally over, with a Caf B Coaching course set to begin at Mpira Village in Blantyre today.

The course was last held in Malawi in 2016 after Confederation of African Football (Caf) stopped subsequent courses and directed member associations to develop custom-tailored manuals.

Football Association of Malawi (Fam) complied, drafting one which was approved in 2020.


Fam Technical Director (TD) and overall course coordinator Benjamin Kumwenda said the course would run through to August 30.

“We had advertised that we needed coaches with Caf C Coaching Licence to take part in the course and, after going through their CVs, the Fam Technical Subcommittee came up with the list of 30 coaches.

“During the course, the coaches will undergo both theory and practical lessons and the course will be in three phases. From July 7 to 14, the coaches will undergo the theory of football coaching as well as goalkeeper training and they will be expected to go back to their respective clubs for internship from 17th to 29th July,” Kumwenda told


He said during the internship, the coaches would be expected to put in writing each training session that they will be conducting with the players for marking.

“The coaches will then come back for a second module from August 1 to 6, when they will learn the theory of football coaching and laws of the game before going back to their clubs for another internship from August 7 to 19.

“The last module of the course will run from August 20 to 30 and, during this period, they will undergo the theory of football coaching, sports medicine and communications and media relations,” Kumwenda is quoted as saying.

He said course facilitators would conduct practical evaluation sessions for coaches during the internship periods.

Facilitating module one will be former Fam TD and Caf Coach Educator John Kaputa, Kumwenda and Heathwin Mkumbaleza while Eddingtone Ng’onamo, Kumwenda and Maxwell Mtonga will take charge of module two, with Mtonga concentrating on Laws of the Game.

Kaputa will also facilitate module three alongside Levison Mwale, who will handle sports medicine.

Fam Competitions and Communications Director Gomezgani Zakazaka is expected to take the participants through the communications and media relations topic.

For the coaches to get the licence, Kumwenda said they must pass examinations which will be written at the end of the course.

Coaches require the minimum of a Caf B Licence to coach in the TNM Super League.

This is in line with Fam’s Club Licencing regulations.

The list of participating coaches is as follows:

James Sangala (Ntopwa FC), Swadick Sanudi (Nyasa Big Bullets), McWilliams Nkunika (Kamuzu Institute), Prichard Mwansa (Moyale), Peter Mponda (Bullets), Sulivan Kandulu (Mulanje Fifa/Fam Youth), Albert Mpinganjira (Mighty Mukuru Wanderers), Peter Mgangira (Silver Strikers), Mabvuto Lungu (Bangwe All Stars), Oscar Kaunda (Civil Service United), Elia Kananji (Blue Eagles), Chisomo Kamulanje (Ntaja FC), Christopher Nyambose (Karonga United), Clement Kafwafwa (national teams), Karen Chaula (Ntopwa), Andrew Bunya (Dedza Young Soccer),Patrick Cheruwa (Phalombe FC), Joseph Chilapondwa (Kamuzu Barracks), Moses Chimbetete (Massa TD), Enos Chatama (Bullets Reserve), Caroline Phiri (coach educator), Levie Mhone (Topik FC), Kondwa Ikwanga (Platinum Stars), Isaac Kapyepye (Under-17 national team), Jeremiah Mkandawire (Lilongwe Urban), Joseph Mlamba (Mchinji Boma FC), Limbani Mwakhwawa (Kasungu Youth), Chancy Nsema (Walter Academy), James Sawerengera (National Youth) and Lovemore Fazili (national team).
