National Youth Football Association (NYFA) has announced it will hold its long awaited Annual General Meeting (AGM) on August 15 in Salima District.
Newly appointed General Secretary (GS), Danny Makiyi, said all was set for the meeting as logistic challenges that delayed it had been surmounted.
“We were unable to hold the meeting in 2019 due to some logistical challenges. The challenges have now been dealt with and preparations for the meeting are at advanced stage. The meeting will take place in Salima but the exact venue will be communicated in due course,” Makiyi said.
During the meeting, the association’s treasurer is expected to present financial statements with the general secretary tabling his 2019 report.
NYFA is expected to hold an elective meeting in December this year.
Makiyi was promoted to the position of GS after Thokozani Chimbali resigned last week having secured a job at Silver Strikers as Chief Executive Officer.
Chimango Munthali also resigned from the post of the association’s chairperson after being elected as Football Association of Malawi (Fam) executive member in December last year.
Following Munthali’s resignation, Osward Lungu was elevated to the hot seat whereas McLoud Munthali was promoted to the position of vice chairperson.
Many sports associations have failed to hold AGMs due to the Covid-19 pandemic which compelled the government to suspend all gatherings of over 100 people in a bid to control the spread of coronavirus.
The suspension resulted into failure of the 2020 season to kick off in March.
However, sports bodies are planning ahead with Super League of Malawi announcing that it will hold its AGM towards the end of August.
Meanwhile, Beach Soccer Association is expected to hold an elective general assembly at Sunbird Nkopola Lodge in Mangochi Saturday.
