By Williams Gondwa:
TNM Super League outfit Moyale Barracks have fired coach Charles Kamanga and re-engaged Collins Nkuna.
This follows the team’s poor performance in the top flight league where it has won thrice, drawn twice and lost five times to occupy position 10 with 11 points from 10 matches.
Kamanga confirmed that he had been re-deployed to other assignments within the Malawi Defence Force.
“I have been transferred to another department but I do not want to talk much on the issue. I just wish the team well for the remainder of the season,” Kamanga said.
Moyale Barracks General Secretary, Gerald Kanje, confirmed the development, saying Nkuna was expected to start working today.
Kanje said it was disheartening that the club had failed to win trophies in the past four years.
“After analysing the team’s performance, we thought it right to bring Nkuna on board. After the 0-0 draw with Civil Sporting at home and upon considering our position on the log table, we came up with the decision to re-engage our former coach,” he said.
Nkuna has confirmed returning to the Lions of Kaning’ina, where he also featured as a player.
The former Red Lions mentor said his priority would be to help the soldiers improve their standing on the table.
“I am happy to be back at Moyale but it would be very unfortunate if we continue to perform poorly. I want to do well with the team. I have a responsibility to obey what my bosses ask me to do. I accepted the challenge to improve Moyale’s performance and I am looking forward to it.
“The team has not been doing well but my return does not necessarily mean we will be winning all matches. The players should work hard so that we can claim our lost glory,” Nkuna said.
Moyale collected a point from their last game against Civil Sporting, which ended goalless
