Blue Eagles turn to Fam on Vitumbiko Kumwenda

Blue Eagles have lodged a complaint to Football Association of Malawi (Fam) accusing Be Forward Wanderers of tapping attacking midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda who signed a three-year deal.

Wanderers unveiled Kumwenda two weeks ago as they claimed he joined the club as a free agent after tendered his resignation at Eagles.

However, in a letter dated April 24, 2020, addressed to Fam Arbitration chamber on status and transfer of player committee, Eagles claimed that Kumwenda breached his contract.


“Blue Eagles is seeking and praying for the three remedies from Fam Arbitration Chambers. A declaration that Mr. Vitumbiko Kumwenda is not a free agent and that Be Forward Wanderers must be found in breach of article 15.3 of Fam Rules and Regulations on the status and transfer of players for inducing Mr Kumwenda to repudiate his contract with Blue Eagles FC in contravention of Regulation 15.1,” Eagles vice General Secretary Williams Nkhoma said in a letter.

“Declaration that Mr. Vitumbiko Kumwenda did not validly terminate his contract employment with Blue Eagles and must be found liable of misconduct under article 15.1 of Fam Rules and regulations of status and transfer of players on the maintenance of contractual stability.”

In addition, Eagles claimed that Kumwenda cannot be released from the club without paying K3.5 million as a training compensation.


“A declaration that Mr. Vitumbiko Kumwenda cannot be released from Blue Eagles without fulfilling his contractual obligation by performance or if he intends by choice to play for another club other than Blue Eagles then the intending club should pay Blue Eagles FC MK3,500,000 training compensation and solidarity percentage for six years,” reads the letter.

Wanderers General Secretary, Victor Maunde said Kumwenda is a Wanderers player.

“We signed a free agent player so let Blue Eagles prove to the contrary,” Maunde said.

Kumwenda moved to Eagles from Kabwafu FC five years ago. Fam Transfer Matching System Manager, Casper Jangale asked for more time when contacted.
