Three Football Association of Malawi (Fam) officials, including General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, left the country on Saturday to attend the 67th Fifa Congress in Manama, Bahrain.
Gunda, alongside Fam Executive Committee members, Daud Suleman and Daud Mtanthiko, will also attend the Confederation of African Football (Caf) extra-ordinary general meeting at Bahrain Convention Centre.
Mtanthiko confirmed that the trio will attend both meetings which are expected to tackle crucial issues regarding Fifa statutes.
“Among others, we will also attend the Caf extra-ordinary meeting scheduled on Monday [yesterday]. The main congress will take place from May 10 to 11. Among the so many issues to be discussed, the congress is expected to vote on proposals for Fifa statutes, including the request to lift the suspension to play international matches in Iraq.
“Delegates will also scrutinise and approve Fifa budget for 2018,” he said.
Mtanthiko backed Malawi’s presence at the congress.
“Just as all associations, Malawi’s attendance is very crucial as we need to voice our opinions on matters of the statues that are being reviewed. We also need to thoroughly review the budget and see whether or not it is squarely speaking to our football development plans,” he said.
