National Women’s Football Association (NWFA) has amended its constitution by, among other things, limiting term limits to three and barring its executive members from holding other positions within football circles.
The constitution was adopted during NWFA’s AGM in Chintheche, Nkhata Bay District, on Saturday.
The committee’s chairperson Suzgo Ngwira said officials serving as a chairperson, general secretary and treasurer will be allowed to serve three successive terms.
“In the past, members were allowed to serve for over three terms but delegates during the AGM changed that. The constitution has also been amended to allow women only to contest for some top positions.
“In addition, those that hold other positions under Football Association of Malawi (Fam) affiliates will not be allowed to hold positions at NWFA,” she said.
The NWFA boss said delegates, during the AGM, also reviewed the body’s strategic plan, which is aimed at guiding the women’s football body to achieve its mission.
“We have formulated the strategic plan to take the game to a higher level,” Ngwira said.
Meanwhile, Southern Region Women’s Football Committee General Secretary Thokozani Mchesi has said the process was done through voting.
“Every article in our constitution was changing though vote; so, if the majority voted for the change, it means it was supposed to pass,” Mchesi said.
