Nominations under scrutiny


Football Association of Malawi (Fam) electoral committee is today expected to scrutinise the nominations during a meeting in Blantyre.

This comes two days after closing nominations process for various positions ahead of Fam polls slated for December 14 in Mangochi.

Chairperson of the Fam Electoral Committee, Justice Sylvester Kalembera confirmed that the meeting would take place today.


“We will have a look at all the nominations and discuss the way forward. There are also several things we will discuss during the meeting,” Kalembera said.

Among other things, the electoral body would also discuss member associations who decided against nominating candidates for the polls.

Super League of Malawi (Sulom), National Youth Football Association (NYFA) and Central Region Football Association (CRFA) opted not to nominate any candidate.


The three Member Associations breached Fam statues but they are expected to send delegates to the polls in December.

Ahead of the polls, four member associations namely

Coaches Association, Southern Region Football Association (SRFA), National Referees Association and Women’s Football Association nominated incumbent Fam President Walter Nyamilandu whereas Beach Soccer Association and Northern Region Football Association (NRFA) nominated incumbent Fam 1st Vice President James Mwenda.

Three people Alufeyo Chipanga, Moses Mkandawire and Vingula Balawala failed to get nominations which means they are out of the race as per Fam statues.

The post of 1st Vice President, Jabber Alide and Daudi Mtanthiko got nominations whereas Lameck Khonje and Othaniel Hara also secured nominations for the post of 2nd vice president.

Female candidate Fellister Dossi is set to be elected executive committee member after being the only female securing nomination.

Rashid Ntelera, Mohamed Selemani, Chimango Munthali, Masiya Nyasulu, Christopher Kuyera and Davis Sado have been nominated for the position of executive committee members.

Fam has nine affiliates which will send representatives to the elective assembly.

Meanwhile, CRFA confirmed that Fam deposited K1 million as their subvention. Part of the subvention was used during the nomination process which they failed to reach an agreement.

CRFA just like fellow regional association get K1million as subvention every year but they were yet to get it until this week.

During the nomination meeting, CRFA officials each pocketed K50,000 as allowance while during the meeting they normally get less than K12,000 as allowance.

CRFA General Secretary, Bernard Chiwiriwiri Harawa, said they applied for the subventions which they received without hesitation.

The following is the final list of nominated members:
