Yabwanya gets a ten year ban

165

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) 2014 presidential candidate Willy Yabwanya Phiri has reportedly been banned for ten years from taking part in any football related activities for taking matters of the sport to the court.

This came just hours before he temporarily resigned as Karonga United trustee due to ‘personal reasons.’

In 2014, he together with Wilkins Mijiga and Tiya Somba Banda successfully sought Fam Appeals Committees intervention stopping the elections only for Blantyre High Court to vacate the injunction.

Yabwanya Phiri: Banned for ten years.

They had all protested the results of the FA polls.

A ruling by a special committee has since banned the Canada based Yabwanya for ten and is yet to name the punishments to the others.

He had yesterday announced to have pulled out of super league rookies Karonga United.

According to letter written by Yabwanya, the 2015 Football Association of Malawi presidential aspirant has temporarily resigned with immediate effect as Karonga United trustee.

“I write to inform you all that due to Personal reasons, I with immediate effect temporarily step down as a Trustee of Karonga United,” reads part of the letter signed by Yabwanya.

Yabwanya added by thanking the people of Karonga for the faith they showed in his leadership skills and he was also grateful for all the achievements they made together.

“Karonga United is a community team for the people of Karonga and I would like to thank you all for the faith you showed in me and my leadership skills. It’s been an honour to serve you and I am grateful for all the accomplishments we have achieved together,” he said.

Yabwanya further said that he has left the leadership role to his fellow trustees Bishop Simama, Chief Kyungu, Kossam Munthali and Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya.

He wished the remaining trustees well as they will be taking the team forward and he added that he will be available for an advisory role if he will be needed to advise the team.

“I know I love soccer as its dear to my heart and I assure you that I will continue to develop our talent on grassroots level and still put our district and Malawi on the map,” said Yabwanya.

Under his leadership Yabwanya guided Karonga United into the Tnm Super league but they only played for one season as they were relegated from the league.

Meanwhile, Karonga United have been promoted back to the Super League as a replacement for Chilumba Barracks which will not participate in the elite league due to lack of financial support.

  1. Where has nyamilandu taken the game of football? Nowhere. Yabwanya would have changed somethings in the game of football. Nyamilandu and his cohorts jealousy.

  9. Ooh what a ruling made by FAM! Are FIFA Rules allow FBI to carry out their operation in FIFA offices and drag the World football governing body to court? If yes, NBI should do so with FAM OFFICES and drag evey member involved in corrupt practices and theft. If No, why did FBI drag Sep Blatter to court?

  11. After giving Willy this harsh punishment for taking the matter to the court of law, Malawians are also keen to get a determination on the verdict of one Jafali Chande for taking football related matter to the same. You shouldn’t be seen taking sides and no compromise. They should have taken the issue of threats to the same FAM to arbitrate and give a determination based on the evidence as they have done with Yabwanya’s case, if this failed then fam should have taken up the matter and pursued it further. Zampira zenizeni izi !! FAM rise !!

  14. Who loses? Gentlemen think before metting out punishments. The guy has immensely contributed to the development of Malawian football and would have continued to do so. He felt betrayed with FAM’s dirty elections tricks and he could not have taken the matter to the same body’s kangaroo court when it is under its president’s arm pits and expected to give a verdict against the incubent. SHAME ON YOU !!!

  23. Anthu inu Walter is Nyamilandu Manda and he is a northerner. I see shitty comments here that akanakhala waku south Yabwanya could not have been suspended. This is totally fecal matter. FAM and SULOM are controlled by Northerners and that is the reason football will not improve in Malawi. Ine mpira wa Flames sindidzapitanso and TV games adzikaonera ndi mayi wawo.

  24. Hahahsha!!! olo munakati life imprisonment ban!! pali phindu lanji kupanga nawo participate za mpira kuno ku Nyasaland!???? Wapulumuka YABWANYA basi iwe cool!!! kkllll

  25. leave Yabwanya alone, walter & yo team u hav failed 2 develop football in mw, i know Yabwanya, he wanted 2 bring a change in malawian football administration!!!! walter & yo guyz de time iz up!!!! just resign honourably!!???

    • Much as i don’t like Walter, but taking football issues to court of law is against FIFA’s rules and regulations. A good example is Nigeria who were banned for govt interference on the sacking of their coach (name forgotten). But its a sad development as far as our football is concerned coz Yabwanya is one of the few who want to invest and improve our game

  26. ngakhale mutakhomelera, karonga will remain the home of football and will keep on producing quality players 4 the national team….mxieew SHAME on u H2o Nyamilandu……………{Bravo Yabwanya}
