There is a ray of hope at Mighty Wanderers after five heads of sub-committees disclosed that that they would meet today in Blantyre to set a date to hold the long awaited board meeting.
This follows the club’s failure to call for a board meeting.
Wanderers Head of Commercialisation Clement Stambuli confirmed the development, saying they would discuss items to be included on agenda items when the board meets.
“The meeting is aimed at strategising on minutes and issues to be discussed during the board meeting which we are planning to hold later this week. We have plenty of issues to look into. We have challenges and we are meeting to see how best to deal with this,” Stambuli said.
However, Football Development Committee Chairperson Brigadier Nyamali expressed ignorance on the meeting.
“It is a good development if people have decided to meet over the pressing issues at the club. It has been a while since we met. Unfortunately, I am away and I will not be able to attend that meeting but I wish them all the best,” he said.
Recently, Wanderers Board Secretary Humphreys Mvula came under criticism for failure to call for a board meeting but he insisted that the board would meet soon.
