Let’s go play Joseph—Kamwendo


Be Forward Wanderers Captain, Joseph Kamwendo, has urged the Nomads family to put aside the Karonga Stadium saga and concentrate on the two TNM Super League assignments in the Northern Region this weekend.

The Nomads wanted Super League of Malawi (Sulom) to either shift Saturday’s match against Chitipa from Karonga Stadium to Mzuzu Stadium or that Wanderers should play one match this weekend.

But Sulom General Secretary, Williams Banda, insisted that nothing will change over the fixture and that they expect the Nomads to fulfil the assignments.


The former Orlando Pirates midfielder said they were ready to play in Karonga.

“I think this is the right time for us to bury the issue. Let us go and play. All we need are maximum points. I know it is a long distance but we cannot do otherwise.

“I have told m y colleagues that we must play with our lungs out and prove that we are serious on winning the league title,” Kamwendo said.


Meanwhile, Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, Thursday wrote to Super League of Malawi (Sulom) and Football Association of Malawi (Fam) that the Nomads would, under protest, honour the two games in the Northern Region.

“Unfortunately, my e-mail, which was also copied to Fam, was never replied to but instead it was addressed in the most childish way in the media by yourself, where you advised us to request Fifa to lend us a plane to ease the hectic schedule,” Butao wrote to Sulom General Secretary, Williams Banda.

“For the two reasons above (fixing our game on a pitch which was condemned by Fam before Fam declared it fit and making us travel 250 kilometres and play a second game within 24 hours), we are travelling to fulfil these fixtures under protest.”

Meanwhile, Chitipa General Secretary, Marshall Mwenechanya, has said he hopes playing at Karonga Stadium would boost their chances of surviving relegation.

“We know that surviving [relegation] would not be easy. We have faced many challenges especially finances to fulfil our fixtures but come Saturday, we are beating the Nomads,” Mwenechanya said.

The Nomads lead the log table with 50 points whereas Chitipa are bottom with 12 points.
