Family intervenes in Jafali Chande’s saga


Jafali Chande’s family has said the Be Forward Wanderers attacker will return to his club after being counselled.

Chande has been absconding training at Wanderers and was reportedly in Lilongwe, where he was talking to several clubs for a possible transfer.

Chande’s brother Richard said they sat down with him and he agreed to return to Blantyre.


“He said he could no longer play for Wanderers because of differences with his colleagues. We talked to him and he has agreed to return to the club. Any time from now, he will be in Blantyre. He has a running contract with the team, so he cannot just dump the club,” Richard said.

Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, said they were looking for ways of assisting Jafali since he cannot play football in his current state.

“We are aware that Jafali is in Lilongwe and that he has some personal problems. These are issues we cannot discuss in the media, so we will see how we to can assist him,” Butao said.


Chande has not been short of controversies during his time at Wanderers. Last year, he was also in the news, following a rift he had with Coach Yasin Osman and teammates.

The player is, when committed to Wanderers, so deadly as he has an eye for goal due to his ability to burst from the blind side and score.

Chande, after scoring four goals in two games to earn Wanderers the Luso Bus Ipite Bonanza’s trophy in Lilongwe, made limited appearances for the Nomads last season, but still emerged as the team’s third league leading scorer with six goals. He signed for Wanderers from Nyasa Big Bullets two seasons ago.
