Jafali Chande ordered to stop training


Want-away attacking midfielder, Jafali Chande, says he has been ordered not to train with any team until his contractual issues with Nyasa Big Bullets are sorted out.

Chande claimed that the order was given to him during a meeting Football Association of Malawi (Fam) hosted to hear out the matter from all the concerned parties on Tuesday evening in Blantyre.

“It was as simple as that. I was asked to refrain from training with any team. Then they told me that there will be another meeting to hear out the same matter,” Chande said.


The former Epac player then urged Fam to speed up the hearing, claiming that he only made an appearance at Be Forward Wanderers, but was yet to train with them.

“So, it means that I have not kicked the ball for the entire off-season period. This is not good for me as a footballer. It is killing my career,” Chande complained.

Fam Transfer Matching Systems Manager, Casper Jangale, confirmed that the meeting took place but referred further questions to Fam General Secretary, Suzgo Nyirenda.


“We are only trying to get to the root of the matter by gathering more information from the concerned parties before it gets out of hand. We have a Disciplinary Committee that will sit down very soon and resolve it,” Nyirenda emphasised.

“Fam has managed to gather enough information and documents that will be passed on to the Disciplinary Committee to determine the future of this matter. In the meantime, the player will wait for the determination before returning to the field of play. It is expected that Fam’s Disciplinary Committee will meet in due course to determine the issue at hand.”

Former Bullets General Secretary, Harold Fote, who was in office at the time Chande joined the team, said he excused himself from the meeting because he was in Kasungu for field work.

“I am an employed man. My employer cannot allow me to travel to Blantyre on such a matter. But I can travel over the weekend if they really want me,” Fote explained.

The matter is also scheduled for a court hearing as three people, including Chande himself, were arrested on a charge of forgery and uttering false documents after Bullets Supporters Committee Chairperson, Stone Mwamadi, brought the matter to the attention of the police.
