Southern Region Football Association officials seek re-election


All but two of the current 13 executive committee members of the Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) have declared their intention to seek re-election at the regional body’s elective general meeting scheduled for December 17 in Blantyre.

SRFA General Secretary, George Pagaja, disclosed that 11 executive committee members have confirmed that they will be contesting for various positions in the association.

“Almost the entire executive committee is available for re-election, except for two who are yet to pronounce themselves on the matter. We will contest to retain the positions we are currently holding,” Pagaja said.


Asked for names of other contestants in the polls, Pagaja said he had not received any but was only hearing about them from the grapevine.

He stated that showing interest to contest alone was not enough since the respective office bearers at the regional football governing body need to be nominated by voting affiliates.

“Having shown interest to contest, we are now working hard to secure nominations from our affiliates. Otherwise, we will not contest if we are not nominated,” Pagaja said.


Receiving of nominations from affiliates closed yesterday with strong indications that former National Youth Football Association Chairman, Mavuto Missi, intends to wrestle with incumbent SRFA Chairman Raphael Humba for the regional body’s topmost post.

Names of nominated candidates will be sent to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) for vetting.

Delegates to the polls will be drawn from 13 district committees with a representation of three members each.

The Southern Region Football League Premier Division and Division One will each have a representation of five delegates drawn from their top five teams.

The elections will take place on December 17 in Mangochi with 39 delegates expected to cast their votes.
