Mighty Mukuru Wanderers have restructured the board, resulting in nine directors getting fired from the board.
This follows a board meeting held in Blantyre recently.
Business mogul Thomson Mpinganjira is still the club’s president and board chairperson.
Nine directors, who have been shown the exit door, include former chairperson Gift Mkandawire, Simon Sikwese, Philip Nyamali, Jack Kamwendo, Max Kalamula, Minister of National Unity Timothy Ntambo, Docan Ngwira, Makhumbo James Mapunda and Harry Msiska.
In an interview Tuesday, Clement Stambuli, who is responsible for commercialisation committee and public relations, said this was part of the restructuring process.
“The board gave powers to the president to restructure the board. As you are aware, the interim board had 24 members but some never attended any meeting ever since. We believe the new board will take the club forward,” Stambuli said.
However, Stambuli was unable to give the exact reasons why some members of the board have not been retained in the new board.
The new board for Wanderers Football Club 2021 Limited has eight directors.
According to a statement from Wanderers, the new board will look into the affairs of the team and all its assets.
Chancy Gondwe is now the Company Secretary and he will double as legal adviser.
In reaction to the development, Mkandawire said he was not bitter.
“Actually, this is the best leadership the club has ever had. I wish the club well and all the directors. The club is taking the right direction,” Mkandawire, who served as the club’s chairperson, said.
Other directors include Mervis Mangulenje, who is the chairperson for finance committee, whereas Limbani Magomero is the chairperson of football development committee.
Christopher Kapelemera is the chairperson for the business development committee whereas Adela Migogo and Humphreys Mvula are directors.
The club also appointed Wanderers Supporters’ Limited board which will be responsible for new supporters regime.
Jeremoth Chilapondwa is the new supporters’ chairperson with Ernest Maganga as the supporters’ general secretary.
However, Stambuli said all supporters committees of the club remain intact and will continue to perform their duties.
Parliamentarian Suzanne Dossi is the supporters director alongside Mervin Mkunika and Sam Mponda.
Other members in the supporters board are Chikhulupiliro Mphatso, Nyongani Gondwe and former Wanderers coach Brian Coombes.
Former Flames and Wanderers midfielder Sherry Msuku hailed the club’s leadership for a well-structured board.
“The board has experienced administrators and I am sure they will take the club to the next level,” Msuku said.
The Nomads are on position six in the TNM Super League with 34 points from 19 matches.
