Sulom nominates Wilkins Mijiga for FAM presidency

Mijiga Wilkins

In a dramatic turn of events, Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has nominated Wilkins Mijiga for the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) presidency.

According to information made available to Malawi24, reliable sources have revealed that Sulom has opted to nominate Mijiga, who was almost ruled out of the race after failing to get nomination papers from 8 of the 9 associations affiliated to FAM.

This means that it will be a three-race horse, with the incumbent Fa president Walter Nyamilandu facing Willy Yabwanya Phiri and Mijiga when the Fa goes to the polls on 12 December this year in Salima.

Mijiga: Gets nominated by Sulom.

Nyamilandu, who is seeking for a fourth term bid in office, was nominated by Southern Region Football Association (SRFA), Central Region Football Association (CRFA), Northern Region Football Association (NRFA), Coaches Association of Malawi, Beach Soccer Malawi, Womens Football Committee and Coaches Association of Malawi whilst Yabwanya Phiri was nominated by the National Referees Committee (NRC).

Nyamilandu has been at the helm of Malawi’s soccer governing body for the past 12 years and if he succeeds in returning his seat, that will be his final term in office as FIFA Reforms Committee has resolved to put elections and terms of members of the FIFA Council and the presidential term limits to the maximum of 12 years, with age limit of 74 years of age.

36 votes from the affiliates will determine the fate of the three aspiring presidential candidates. Apart from the presidential position, other aspiring candidates will compete for the position of the Fa’s first vice president, second vice president and an executive committee member.

James Mwenda will battle it out with Sulom treasurer Tiya Somba Banda for the first vice president position whilst Daud Mtanthiko and Rashi Mtelera will compete for the association’s executive member committee.

    1. Annubie l also love Mijiga he may win if these blind aspirants open their eyes coz it will be secret vote; Tiya Nsomba is runing as vice President; The elections will be chaired by a Lawyer not SULAM: Lets kneel down & pray for the Banker Mijiga to come victorious; Walter has over stayed & he is the waste in Africa: 12yrs in power not even winning the COSAFA cup shame:

  6. I don’t trust these nominees I smell fam is bluffing pole bt they will automatically put this monkey nyamilandu the failure

  7. Walter Nyamilandu has 6 nominations, Yabwanya & Mijiga have one namition each this does level the playing field its just a sucker punch for the two aspirants: Walter won the FAM elections before nominations unless otherwise:
