Football Association of Malawi (Fam) President, Walter Nyamilandu, has admitted that some employees of the association’s secretariat might face disciplinary action for misconduct.
Nyamilandu was reacting to the association’s management meeting which reportedly insulted some executive members.
The secretariat traded barbs over who was to manage gates during the Presidential Cup quarterfinal match involving Nyasa Big Bullets and Mafco FC at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
“We are carrying out investigations on the matter. At the moment, we are dealing with it as an internal matter,” Nyamilandu explained in a response to a questionnaire.
“If there is evidence to that effect, it will definitely warrant disciplinary action.”
However, Nyamilandu could not be drawn into stating as to what disciplinary action the secretariat faces.
The association’s executive committee led by Vice-President, James Mwenda, second Vice-President, Othaniel Hara and Executive Committee members, Rashid Ntelera and Daudi Mthathiko, summoned General Secretary, Suzgo Nyirenda alongside four secretariat staff for alleged misconduct.
Marketing and Commercial Director, Limbani Matola, Competitions’ Manager, Gomezgani Zakazaka, Transfer Matching System Manager, Casper Jangale, Finance and Administration Manager, Christopher Mdolo, were summoned by the association disciplinary committee on Tuesday evening.
After investigations, the committee is expected to present a report to the entire executive committee for a final decision.
On Tuesday, Nyirenda refused to comment on the matter.
Mafco beat Bullets 1-0, courtesy of Saidi Mtekama’s goal to progress to the semifinals.
Mafco will meet Silver Strikers at Civo Stadium on Sunday whereas Be Forward Wanderers host Mangochi Police at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
