Rashid Ntelela will resign as Civo United general secretary following his election as an executive committee member of Football Association of Malawi (Fam).
Ntelela Monday said he would respect Fam statutes that prohibit executive members from holding other football positions on the domestic scene.
“I am not in dilemma. Regardless of what the Fam statutes say, I will relinquish my post as Civo GS to concentrate on my new role as Fam executive member and also to avoid possible conflict of interest,” he said.
Article 33 of Fam statutes on the composition of the executive committee also bars executive committee members from holding political positions.
“A member of the executive committee may not at the same time hold a position in an affiliate committee or clubs subordinate to an affiliate of Fam except for those representing the Women’s Football Association and Super League. A member of the executive committee may not at the same time be a member of a Judicial Organ of Fam,” read the statutes in part.
Another newly-elected Fam board member, Alfred Gunda, is also expected to resign as Northern Region Football Association general secretary.
