Eagles chairperson transferred to Lunzu


Blue Eagles chairperson Alexander Ngwala has been transferred to South Lunzu Police Station which means he is automatically no longer in charge of the club with immediate effect.

Ngwala, who is a police officer, has served in that capacity for three years after defeating Richard Luhanga during the club’s election three years ago. Following Ngwala’s transfer, his deputy will take over as the club’s chairperson in the interim.

In an interview yesterday, Ngwala confirmed about his transfer to South Lunzu saying he had good relationship with the squad.


“Eagles will be in my heart forever. I am leaving Eagles a very happy person because we have built a very strong team. We had team spirit at Eagles and we used to eat m’memo together with the rest of the squad and I will miss them a lot,” Ngwala said.

Ngwala’s departure coincides with the appointment of Declerk Msakakuona as Malawi under-17 national football team coach. This means Eagles will have new chairperson as well as new coach ahead of football resumption next month.

During his three-year reign, Eagles were a force to reckon with in domestic football having won two cups- Airtel Top 8 Cup and the Fisd Challenge Cup. Eagles have expressed interest to take part in the Caf Confederations Cup this year but their dream has been shattered as football is suspended due to Covid-19 pandemic.


Eagles vice General Secretary, Williams Nkhoma said Ngwala was a hard worker.

“He was very innovative and a hard worker. Ngwala used to mobilise funds for the team which is very difficult due economic challenges. His leadership qualities were also good as he used to bring us together in tough times,” Nkhoma said.

Sydney Ching’oma is the club’s General Secretary whereas Joseph Kachapila and Charles Kadzidzi are Treasurer and Vice Treasurer, respectively. Committee members include Orton Chiudzu Nyirenda, Evance Banda and Tiyese Kabati.
