Some of the Super League teams have asked their mother body, Super League of Malawi (Sulom), to take advantage of the Coronavirus break to hold its long awaited annual general meeting (AGM).
Other clubs are running out of patience and feel Sulom is hiding under Coronavirus to stay away from holding annual general meeting.
Be Forward Wanderers have asked Sulom to immediately call for an indaba.
The teams General Secretary Victor Maunde said they were worried as several issues including financial reports were supposed to be addressed.
“We are asking our parents Sulom to call for an AGM now. Let them take advantage of the break due to Coronavirus to call for the AGM as teams want to know last season’s financial report. We also want to know how we fared on broadcasting rights. So they should not use coronavirus as scapegoat,” Maunde said.
TN Stars Chief Executive Officer Jones Banda in a separate interview also shared similar statements.
“As clubs we are saddened by the continued blackout on the AGM. We are anxious to know how we fared financially. What we are having is gate collections money sheets that are provided after the match but we need a full financial report from our mother body,” he said.
Sulom President Tiya Somba Banda said the delay to call for the AGM had come as a result of change of an accounting system at the institution.
“We have changed from our old system to a new one and we are hoping to be done by April end and then we shall give a 21 days-notice to the clubs,” he said.
But Banda failed to give the tentative dates of the proposed AGM fearing that he could contradict himself.
He also added that the firm handling the Account is yet to finalise the job.
