Walter launches manifesto on Thursday

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) president Walter Nyamilandu is set to launch his ‘Raising the bar’ manifesto on Thursday in Blantyre, in preparation for the December 14 Elective General Assembly.


"At the launch, I will unpack step by step the measures that will be taken to bridge the gaps and to scale up the game in order to take us to our desired future.


"I am bringing a message of hope of a brighter future based on mindset change on new ways of working by introducing a new operating model that maximize productivity and optimize the performance of all players and actors in the game of football,” he said.

He said for the country to realise its ambition of becoming a successful football industry, there was need to stop from operating on business as usual and allow no space for mediocrity.

Last month, Nyamilandu announced his intentions to retain his seat saying he has a lot of unfinished business.

"We have worked hard over the years to lay a strong foundation for football to flourish and it now time provide a lasting solution for football to become a tremendous success. Raising the Bar is the game changer and it is what separates Men from Boys as we relentlessly pursue excellence and success in the new era. Suffice to say that Team Walter means serious business." he added.

He faces opposition from his deputy James Mwenda, former vice president Moses Mkandawire, Karonga United chairperson Alufeyo Chipanga Banda and youthful Balawala Vingula.

Mwenda, Chipanga Banda and Vingula have already launched their manifestos.

The polls are set for Mangochi and so far, the Electoral Committee has opened the nomination period for the candidates.

Thirty-six delegates from FAM’s member association will decide who to be in the new committee after casting their votes.

Nyamilandu has been at the helm of the country’s football governing body for about 15 years forcing some quarters to say he has overstayed his welcome and should pave way for others.
