Be Forward Wanderers incoming Chairperson, Simon Sikwese, has disclosed that there is need to establish the legitimacy of the K200 million debt which the Nomads owe creditors.
Sikwese is set to be elected unopposed when Wanderers goes to polls today at the team’s club house along Lali Lubani Road in Chichiri, Blantyre.
“I can’t talk about how scaring the debt is when we don’t know how authentic it is. We need to investigate how it was arrived at. Thereafter we need to be transparent and accountable,” he said.
Sikwese said turning around Wanderers was a daunting task which needed collaborated efforts.
“We just need to put a system in place to offer checks and balances,” he said.
Outgoing Second Vice Chairperson, Hubert Mfune, will face off with outgoing Vice Secretary, Chris Kananji for the post of First Vice Chairperson. Allan Chuma has opted to stay out having served on the post for two terms.
Former Wanderers executive member, Andrew Mwadala, will be elected Second Vice Chairperson unopposed.
Wanderers Team Manager, Victor Maunde, will be elected General Secretary unopposed whereas Lilongwe based businesswoman, Adela Migogo, will also be elected Vice Secretary unopposed.
Blantyre based businessman, Mphatso Jika, will face-off with Dave Pemba for the post of Treasurer.
Meanwhile, Wanderers Administrator, Steve Palameza, said security would be tightened to avoid a repeat of last week’s scuffle which saw some bouncers interfering with the process.
“Last time we had the police but they were not strict. This time they have promised us that they will be strict and anyone who contravenes rules and regulations will be dealt with accordingly,” he said.
