Council campaigns against dissolved committee

The feud surrounding Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) and the dissolved Athletics Association of Malawi (AAM) is refusing to die as stakeholders have been urged to avoid working with the disgruntled body.

MNCS has issued a statement informing the nation in general public and the sports fraternity in particular to stop dealing the dissolved committee.

According to the statement, council has advised all AAM affiliates including the Malawi Police Service (MPS), Malawi Defence Force (MDF), the Prison Services and all Government Ministries Departments and Agencies (MDA) not to deal or be involved in any activity that has been organised by the dissolved stand in committee.


“The dissolved committee has no mandate to operate as AAM executive members. The Council has learnt with deep regret that despite making public its position on the dissolution of the stand in committee, the dissolved committee is still parading and conducting its activities as AAM executive members.

“As Council we are very disappointed with the actions of the dissolved executive committee,” MNCS Public Relations and Communications Officer Edgar Ntulumbwa said in a statement dated January 27, 2023.

Ntulumbwa said council established a care-taker committee, which is chaired by His Lordship Justice Sylvester Kalembera JA, SC.


“This committee held consultative meetings on the constitution with the athletics family and all relevant stakeholders, the committee is working day and night to make sure that it finalizes the amendments of the constitution and will guide when AAM Annual General Meeting (AGM) and the elections will take place.

“The care-taker committee will announce to the public when these activities will take place,” he said.

However, spokesperson for the dissolved committee Frank Chitembeya remained defiant.

“We will continue doing our duties. If they proceed then Malawi will be banned. We don’t want Malawi to be banned because it will affect our athletes. Sports Council has no mandate to dissolve us,” he said.

Council dissolved AAM because of its failure to amend the constitution and failing to hold an annual general meeting among others.
