Mixed fortunes for Malawians abroad


Malawian players plying their trade abroad registered mixed fortunes for their respective teams at the weekend.

Striker Chawanangwa Kaonga was on target for Zanaco FC in a 3-2 loss to Zesco in the MTN Faz League on Sunday.

The former Silver Strikers forward scored from the penalty spot in the 58th minute.


It was Kaonga’s third goal for the struggling Zanaco this season.

The Malawian said he has settled well in the Zambian league.

“I am really working hard to help the team. It is a tough league but I am happy playing for Zanaco,” he said.


Kaonga joined the Zambian club on a one-year deal from Silver Strikers for a K2 million deal.

Zanaco are on position 15 with 34 points from 29 matches, just three points above the relegation zone.

Elsewhere, Costa do Sol, home of four Malawian players, lost 1-0 to Quelimane in their opening match of the 2023 Mocambola League.

The Malawian quartet of Richard Mbulu, Yamikani Chester, Lloyd Njaliwa and Chikoti Chirwa was in the starting line-up.

UD Songo of John Banda started their title defence on a high after beating Ferroviario Nacala. The Flames captain scored the lone goal of the match for Songo.

“It is a good start for us. I hope it will be another good season,” Banda said.

Another Flames midfielder Francisco Madinga was not on the bench as Jwaneng Galaxy beat Mogoditsane Fighters 2-0 at Molepole Sports Complex in Botswana.

In eSwatini, former Flames coach Meck Mwase suffered his first defeat as Nsingizini Hotspurs coach following a 1-0 loss to Moneni Pirates.

Mwase has made a slow start to his coaching career in eSwatini following one loss, one win and a draw in three matches.

However, Mwase is hoping to turn things around at the club, having replaced compatriot Gerald Phiri Senior last month.
