Sulom hints at AGM
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has said it is working on the possibility of convening an Annual General Meeting (AGM) before the new season kicks off.
Commencement of the 2020 football season was suspended at the eleventh hour after President Peter Mutharika declared a state of disaster due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Sulom President Tiya Somba-Banda said the AGM was one of the activities on their to-do list before the new season kicks off.
“We are working on it and we will advise accordingly,” Somba Banda said without giving a hint on the date and venue.
He said among the issues to be discussed during the meeting are issuance of broadcast rights and election of a new legal advisor to replace Mohammad Selemani who is now a Football Association of Malawi executive member.
Sulom almost kicked off the league without the AGM despite a number of sticky issues remaining unresolved.
Some of the issues are review of gate revenue cuts and adjustment of referees’ perks.
Civil Service United General Secretary, Ronald Chiwaula, said postponement of the league was a blessing in disguise.
“We can use this opportunity to start planning for the meeting once the Covid-19 sports suspension is lifted. It would have been a bad idea to kick off the league without the meeting. We need this meeting because there are several issues to discuss,” Chiwaula said.
Chiwaula said his club would ask for an increase in prize money for the elite league whose champions pocket K15 million.
According to Sulom’s constitution, delegates to the meeting are supposed to be given 28 days’ notice.
