Meck Mwase yet to sign Flames contract

Meck Mwase

Malawi national football team Coach, Meck Mwase, is yet to put pen to paper on his one-year contract with government having served for four months.

Mwase replaced Ronny van Geneugden in an interim capacity in April.

He was later offered a year-long contract effective July 1 after impressing during this year’s Cosafa Cup in South Africa.


Malawi National Council of Sports acting Executive Secretary, Henry Mereka, confirmed that Mwase was yet to put pen to paper but said there was no need to panic.

“The paperwork was already done but there are some procedures which were supposed to be followed before signing. But the coach is working at the moment and I am sure he is being taken care of,” Mereka said.

Government is responsible for Mwase’s package whereas Football Association of Malawi (Fam) will take care Lovemore Fazili and Bob Mpinganjira.


When contacted yesterday, Mwase declined to comment on the matter, saying he was focusing on preparations for next month’s Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against South Sudan and Uganda.

Fam General Secretary, Alfred Gunda, did not answer his mobile phone to comment on the matter yesterday.

Mwase got the job without interviews after impressing during the Cosafa Cup where he guided the Flames to three victories, one draw and two losses.

At the 2019 Cosafa Cup, Malawi started with a 3-0 win over Seychelles before beating Namibia 2-1.

The Flames drew 1-1 against Mozambique in the last game of the group stages and lost 4-2 on post-match penalties to Zambia in the quarterfinals after a 2-2 stalemate in regulation time.

Malawi were then relegated to the Cosafa Plate where they beat Comoros Islands 2-1 to qualify for the final which they lost to South Africa.

Since his full time appointment, Mwase has guided the Flames to World Cup group stage qualification after edging Botswana 1-0 on aggregate.
