Ltam elections shifted to December 19
Lawn Tennis Association of Malawi (Ltam) has shifted its elective annual general assembly to December 19 at Lilongwe Golf Club.
The elections were postponed last week following disagreements that rocked the association, a development that forced Malawi National Council of Sports (MNCS) to call for a meeting to iron out the confusion.
According to Ltam outgoing president, Titani Muwalo, the meeting was successful and resolved that the elections should take place in Lilongwe.
“We had a wonderful meeting where all parties were present and we are glad to inform the tennis fraternity that all the differences have been resolved,” Muwalo said.
During the meeting, Muwalo was also cleared to stand as a president for the association.
Muwalo’s eligibility was under scrutiny as he was accused of failing to pay K1,000 membership fee.
He also said among other things, the meeting also agreed to extend the period for the payment of the membership fee to December 16, 2015 to allow interested individuals to contest for various positions.
Muwalo, who is seeking re-election, faces strong challenge from Geoffrey Kachale for the position of president.
He said if re-elected, he would strive to improve the welfare of tennis players, infrastructure development and revamp tennis.
