Masters Security coach quits


Masters Security Coach, Abasi Makawa, has resigned, fuelling speculation that he has sealed a deal with TNM Super League giants Silver Strikers.

Makawa tendered his resignation letter soon after a goal-less draw with Proline FC of Uganda in the Caf Confederation Cup at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.

Masters General Secretary, Christopher Njeula, said the former Epac mentor did not give reasons for quitting.


“We are still discussing the matter as a club. The coach just said he was quitting on personal grounds,” Njeula said.

Makawa has been earmarked as a replacement for Lovemore Fazili who left Silver to become the Flames assistant Coach.

Reports suggest that Young Chimodzi Senior would be maintained as Silver Coach, with Makawa becoming part of the backroom team.


Makawa said Master had accepted the resignation.

“We have parted ways in an amicable manner. The club has wished me well,” he said.

On his prospects of joining Silver, Makawa said he was discussing the matter with the club’s officials.

The Central Bankers are expected to announce Makawa’s appointment ahead of TNM Super League second round kick-off on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Civil Sporting Club have joined the race to hire Makawa.

Civil General Secretary, Ronald Chiwaula, said Makawa was one of their targets.

“We would like to hire an assistant coach for Franco Ndawa before we start the second round. We will do the interviews on Wednesday [today]. We approached Makawa to know if he could join us but he is yet to come back to us,” Chiwaula said.

Meanwhile, Masters have promised to persuade Elia Kananji to stay put at the club despite being linked with a move away to either Silver or Civil.

Kananji and Makawa resigned as Masters coaches on Monday but Njeula said they had only accepted the latter’s resignation.

Njeula said the club’s owner Alfred Gangata was talking to Kananji to persuade him to stay put.

Meanwhile, Ntopwa have hired Trevor Kajawa to replace Leo Mpulula who resigned as coach recently.

Ntopwa owner, Isaac Osman, said Kajawa was the right person for the job.

“We hope that he would give us the best results as we are looking forward to staying in the league,” Osman said.

The former defunct Blackpool mentor’s first assignment at Ntopwa would be away TNM Super League fixtures against Mzuni FC and Moyale Barracks this weekend.
