Vitumbiko Kumwenda speaks out


Blue Eagles wantaway attacking midfielder Vitumbiko Kumwenda has said he would not reverse his decision to quit the Lilongwe-based club.

Kumwenda tendered his resignation from Eagles amid interest from Blantyre giants Be Forward Wanderers.

In an interview Sunday, the former Kabwafu FC player said there was no chance to reverse the decision.


“I made my mind that I want to leave the team and the decision was made in consultation with my family members. It is time for me to face new challenges as I have served the club for five years. I have had my time so I feel it is the best time for me to move to another club,” Kumwenda said.

The midfielder is also refusing to have a meeting with Eagles but claimed he was yet to complete a deal with Wanderers.

“At the moment, I am not sure when I will meet them. I am resting so I have not decided on which team to play for next season,” he added.


Eagles rejected two bids from Wanderers on the player. But later softened up as they set up a committee for discussion which was disbanded after a deadlock with the Lali Lubani Road outfit.

Eagles Chairperson Alexander Ngwala Sunday was not readily available for comments but recently indicated that the club wanted to have a discussion with the player.

Kumwenda moved to Eagles from Kabwafu five years ago. For the past five years, he established himself as one of the best attacking midfielders in domestic football.

Last year, he formed a deadly combination with Micium Mhone, Foster Biton and Schumacher Kuwali. His strength, include passing and dribbling but sometimes he clings on to the ball too much.

If he moves to Wanderers, he will compete for places alongside Mike Kaziputa, Richard Rabson, Felix Zulu and Isaac Kaliati.
