Jaffalie Chande makes immediate impression at Nomads


Even when he was let out of the tunnel to warm up when his fellow players were in the dressing room at half time, the fans had shown they expected him to play and see his heroics at the new club, but Jaffalie Chande came off the bench and scored in Mighty Be Forward’s 3-1 win over Cobbe Barracks in a Presidential cup meeting on Tuesday at Kamuzu Stadium.

Chande who had controversially joined the side from rivals Nyasa Big Bullets where he had his contract disputes heightened impressed even from the first touch of the ball at a time the scores remained 1-all between the two sides.

Chande scored on his debut.

Peter Wadabwa had put the Nomads in the lead in the first minute after he tapped in a well driven in cross from the Nomads right back Stanley Sanudi before Cobbe pulled level through a Fanuel Fukizi slot on 20th minute until half time.

But the Nomads pulled off Ted Sumani, who was also a marvel to watch as his link with captain Francis Mlimbika outdid Cobbe’s Thoko Banda and Patrick Luhanga upfront and in the wings.

It only took him 13 minutes in the second half to open his account for the Lali Lubani side heading home a powerfully chipped cross form the right frank by Sanudi.

Chande sent the fans into chants and yes, he had put the Nomads in the lead again.

And Wadabwa sealed the winner for the Nomads twenty five minutes later. He dribbled past the Cobbe defence before beating their goalie Maneno Masowo and scored  the winner of the day.

In an interview with Malawi24 after the match Chande was quick to thank his fellow players for the assist saying that was a welcome message to him at the club.

‘You see, Sanudi should have even made the attempt himself but he passed the ball on to me and I scored. What more can I describe that other than a welcome note to me. I want to settle down at my new club and  I thank everyone for the support” said Chande who has now been with the club for two weeks.

The Nomads have now sailed to the next round of the Presidential Cup regional playoffs.

Chande had been in a dispute with Bullets over the duration of his contract but he joined the Nomads after an independent committee at the FA ruled that there was no evidence he had a contract with the Peoples team ending in 2017.
