By Yamikani Nicholas Kachingwe and Wondeŕful Mkhutche

As we are all aware,there will be an election in December,in which 38 specific football deligates from all regions in Malawi,who run football activities will have to elect a new fam president,who will run a term of 5 years.

These voters are called AFFILIATES.

Unfortunately, they’re picked based on their leading roles and capacities as football honchos.

The ceremony is private and discreet.

There is nothing much,the public can do to enforce their concerns,the whole final whistle is held by these affiliates.

Therefore,it’s paramount to remind them,what we football lovers and participants,we have gone through over the years.

1) Walter is a big time RENOWNED & CELEBRATED CADET,we are all cognizance with cadet’s job description,it’s Corruption,self enrichment, self-glorification, extreme failure and a lot of sweet words with 0/10 action followed.

2) Walter has held the fam Presidency since Dr Bakili Muluzi’s tenure,he needs to realize that any Organization to move forward,there is need for new leadership to come in with FRESH,VIBRANT ideas.

3)Walter is setting himself up for 2024 DPP’S vice Presidency,is no longer a secret and he has been using his position,to connect himself to DPP by enticing Bullets and Wanderers supporter’s muscle through the stadias.

4) Walter’s current political affiliations will affect his coming tenure should he win.

5)Walter needs to concetrate on his Job at Illovo,so far he has proved himself to be busy and almost of his duties as a president,he delegates to his vice, confidently! almost everything is done by his vice Mr James Mwenda.

6) Malawi football has the potential to develop.Walter has delivered to an extent and he has run dry,for the past 20 years nothing new has cropped up.

7)Walter is egotistical and works towards self aggrandizement, recently shown by changing the FIFA funded project in Chiwembe ground,which was known Mpira and now it’s “Walter Nyamilandu Academy” cosafa and fifa pumped hundreds of Millions to preserve the ground for Malawians not for his personal worth.The ground is for public consumption but he established a personal facility on a govt facility and he never asked for any authorisation or pay any tenancy fees,THIS IS TOTAL ABUSE OF POWER!

8) Walter is forever busy with his FIFA role than Fam role,it’s time he concetrate on one thing,besides that most of his colleagues who are in fifa council only few still hold positions in their country’s football bodies,another thing,whatever that is discussed,deliberated and agreed on FIFA level,he hastily implements them in Malawi without consultations with FAM chain of command,THIS IS TOTALLY CONFLICT OF INTEREST.

9)The Super league is not yet a professional league as he promised,We do not expect it to be poorly runned as it is now, knowing Walter has been around for a long time.

10) There has been less Development of football infrastructure in Malawi,Not much lobbying has been done towards this,and expect nothing peculiar as long as he is leading fam.

11) He is a man who is indecisive,in 2014 he told us,he won’t stand, therefore,we can conclude fam Presidency is his toy and pawn to stay relevant not as a patriotic duty.

12) The term of fam Presidency is with no limit,Walter is taking advantage of this and he has deliberately messed up knowing,he won’t be put under scrutiny or his position be threatened.

13) Walter has failed to groom budding talents to take over from him,he is a dictator,no wonder,there is no effectiveness in the association.He wants to be a LIFE PRESIDENT OF FAM

15) WALTER promised us a flame that plays like Barcelona but there is no spark to that when the national team plays, generally we are going nowhere.

16) Always giving us wrong Foreign coaches,None during his tenure has taken us far,the man does not know who to hire for our football to move forward.
