Nyamilandu: Said Flames performance is satisfactory.

…its an insult to Malawians- Yabwanya, Mijiga

The incumbent Football Association of Malawi (Fam) president Walter Nyamilandu surprised Malawians when he confidently labelled the Malawi National Football Team (the Flames) as one of the best teams in Africa.

Speaking during a debate organised by Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) for Fam’s presidential candidates at the Bingu International Conference Centre (BICC) in Lilongwe on Saturday evening, Nyamilandu said his 12-year tenure has transformed the performances of the Flames.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the Malawi National Football team is no longer a punching bag. We qualified for the 2010 African Cup of Nations and we can attract teams like Algeria, Tunisia, Ivory Coast, Nigeria and many more African giants.”

Willy Yabwanya Phiri

Yabwanya Phiri: Turned hi ire on Nyamilandu. .

“Look at the rankings, we have now managed to maintain a two digit number for quite some time. Its very unfortunate that we slipped from 97 to 107 but so far so good for the Flames,” said Nyamilandu.

But responding to the remarks, Nyamilandu’s competitors Willy Yabwanya and Wilkins Mijiga trashed the incumbent saying Malawi’s performance for the last decade has been disappointing.

“At 51, Malawi gets beaten by a newly South Sudan at Cecafa, are we progressing? Our team has performed miserably for the past decade because of poor planning so if you have failed for the past ten years, why now?” asked Yabwanya.

Mijiga echoed with Yabwanya saying it was very unfortunate to hear from Nyamilandu who instead of telling Malawians the truth, was busy lying.

The incumbent Fam president has been at the helm of the association for the past 12 years. The Flames only managed to qualify for Afcon once under his leadership.

  3. May be walter but football in malawi is really my concern nyamililandu if u win take football @ international level my concern is dat football become boring to watch malawi soccer stupid lyk coz u leaders hav no vision to improve our soccer

  4. Because of poverty Walter is deal. But in real sense he needs to Goooooo…..! He have nothing to offer to our stanted football. Unfortunatly those who will vote are all greedy fellas. Killing our shiboboooo

  5. @ arthur adam do you mean that walter was/is farm president or is he involved in farming activities?sorry he is FAM president not farm pres. he is not contesting on farm pres. but fam. it is his democratic right to do so

  6. Akathane Kaye ndi cash gate yaku ntchito kwakeKo wawononga kale zinthu ameneyo akapume bas.more ova this is not politics bt football!

  7. Nyamilandu has got nothing to offer and its too late. Let others have a chance and take Malawi football to another level. Bt for Nyamilandu, this is the right time to go to his garden and plant maize.

  8. l work @ llovo this man has a casegate close to billion so kick him out & those who will vote for him you will seeee hoogalise

  9. Amalawi timakonda kubwereza ma mistake mavuto sazatha Walter walephera kutumikira amalawi palibe chachirendo angabweretse ku mpira wathu sanabadwe ndi udindo ena ayesenso tione ife sitikumuna!!!!!!!

  10. Nyamilandu will hardly go. The problem is that there is no clause to weigh his performance and time when the President shu be on the position. Two terms are enough and from this background our football will change basi.

  11. The thing is that the manifestos by contenders are not even near us.The ones to vote are likely to have seen what all these candidates are talking about.Let the voters decide for us after a through scrutiny of the manifestos.We can make nuisance of ourselves in vain.Bare in mind too that the two contenders do not know the ins and outs of football.Our neighbour took Kalusha Bwalya into administration.Why would we go for pple who have nothing about football.Where did the two play football.I heard one contender intends to bar Nyasa Group from sponsoring BB.

  12. Hhhhmmm Nyamilandu what speachless u are bringing, just accept that your decade 86% was very bad to us as Malawians. Off course u have wasted state money which is ours but never bring a joy. Look where Flames is ? 100 plus, what fuck. Its shameful and greedy to here that u want to contest. Hey u better u go with ur ass.

  13. You wish Walter to win again claiming he hav to complete his mission? mmh My fellow Malawians is there any person who had completed his/her job? Even Dr.H Kamuzu he didn’t.Walter should pack and gooo!!!!

  14. Malawi is a democratic country and therefore change is always a must if needed…..likewise in the government…just like my friend Arthur Adamu puts it….so Malawi…lets come together and fight this unnecessary dictatorship which has already been costing us alot…..

  15. Mongokukumbutsani bwana Nyamilandu kuti tsabola wakale sawawa….2010 tinapanga qualify inde,koma nanga ndekuti Malawi ingokhala ndimbiri yoti inapangapo qualify kamodzi kokha basi? Vomelezani kuti zakukanikani….apatseni ena mpata nawonso tiwawone nzeru zawo. Ur services are no longer required bwana!!

  16. That’s the only problem in our country hw long should u be the president of farm that even applies in politics the same old gurus still wanna rule isn’t it tym that u could go home and rest a bit, or are u the only wise pple in the country

  18. The two sides of a coin ,are worthy the value of a coin..FAM has done with one side of a coin..which is

    Walter…Now lets turn the other side of a coin..thats for Willy or Wilkins …

  19. Ask Uganda, S Sudan, Tanzania, Namibia …. Who Their Punching Bag Has Been Lately????? . What’s The Explanation On The Suspension At Illovo? Akusaka Pothawira Awa….

  20. this is how Dictators are made in Africa!! I am sorry to say this! No matter how good a Leader is chance should be given to others.. what do you expect munthuyo wakhala pampandowo zaka over 10 ndiye angalephere kuyankha mafunso?

  21. While the argument that Watler has overstayed could hv a point, it still remains that the guy has achieved alot. He has improved and brought sanity in the game. If what FAM used to be (before Walter) is anything to go by, I wld rather maintain Walter than risking the game into wrong hands.

  22. Tiyeni tivomereze kuti sitiziwa mpira zikutivuta chifukwa cha umphiwi wathu musathe mawu ndiku munyoza munthu ayi sitizazwanso mpira mpaka kalekale

  31. hahahahahahaha!

    Very laughable
    and absurdable!

    Walter Nyamilandu has failed Malawians and let other people take over.

    Nyamilandu has a very big problem of being a Mr Know it all, hence poor showing of the flames!
