Sulom meeting shifted to Sunday
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has shifted the annual general meeting (AGM) dates from Saturday to Sunday but the venue remains Sunbird Nkopola in Mangochi District.
Sulom General Secretary (GS) Williams Banda confirmed the development in a letter addressed to all the Super League clubs.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances beyond our control, the annual general meeting of the Super League of Malawi to be scheduled for Saturday 11 September, 2021 has been shifted to Sunday 12 September. The AGM will be held with strict observation of Covid preventive measures,” reads the letter from Banda.
Top of the agenda of the meeting will be election of vice replacing Zacharia Nyirenda, who was dismissed due to indiscipline.
Nyirenda was found guilty of abuse of funds and also putting the league governing body into disrepute.
The fired official did not remit part of the gate revenue collected during the match involving Silver Strikers and Nyasa Big Bullets during a first-round match at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.
Three people namely Moyale Barracks GS Fulawo Mwale, former Silver GS Mike Tembo and former Nyasa Big Bullets Chief Executive Officer Escort Chinula will battle for the past.
Chinula got eight nominations whereas Mwale got three. Tembo got one nomination.
Civil Service United GS, Ronald Chiwaula withdrew from the race.
In an interview, Chiwaula said he expects the meeting to discuss a lot of issues.
“This is the opportunity for clubs to shape the future of Malawi football. There are several outstanding issues we need to discuss at the AGM,” he said.
The General Assembly will also discuss financial report and also approve the budget for Sulom. At first, Sulom announced that it would not hold the general assembly due financial constraints. However, it bowed down to pressure from the clubs.
