Meck Mwase, Fam case adjourned


The Industrial Relations Court (IRC) has adjourned the case involving former Flames coach Meck Mwase and Football Association of Malawi (Fam) to June 15.

The development comes after Mwase sued Fam for unlawful termination of contract, redeployment and constructive dismissal.

Mwase’s lawyer David Kanyenda of Makiyi, Kanyenda and Associates said Fam’s representatives Chisanga and Tomoka sought for the adjournment of the case, number 432 of 2022.


“We appeared before IRC Assistant Registrar Peter Kandulu and Fam asked for the adjournment, which was accepted,” Kanyenda said.

“We are ready to prosecute the matter to its logical conclusion at the earliest opportunity.”

According to a court document, the defence sought for the adjournment because Fam’s representatives were busy with The Flames logistical issues in Lilongwe after last weekend’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Ethiopia at Bingu National Stadium.


“We would like to advise that we will seek an adjournment due to the fact that our client’s representative will still be in Lilongwe after The Flames game on June 4, attending to other logistics related to the team,” the document reads.

Mwase was fired after Fam, at its quarterly executive meeting committee meeting, agreed to redeploy Mwase and replace him with the then technical director, Romanian Marian Mario Marinica.
