452

The 21-year old Nyasa Big Bullets and Flames winger was named man of the match during Malawi’s goalless draw to Mauritius in the on going Cosafa Castle Cup in South Africa but received criticism from some sections of Malawians for changing the language from English to Chichewa when he was interviewed by a Supersport reporter.

Now, after arriving back into the country on Friday, Dalitso Sailesi was quick to hit back at his critics saying he travelled to South Africa to play football and not school.

He told reporters that before leaving Malawi, he was asked to carry his boots and not books and ball pens.

Dalitso Sailesi

Dalitso Sailesi spoke in Chichewa in response to the last question of the interview.

“First of all, I was happy with the award of man of the match after the game considering that we were 22 players on the day but I was named man of the match,” he explained.

On the reaction of some sections of Malawians when he failed to speak English, Sailesi said:”I went there to play football and not to be schooled. When I was given that accolade, I was given because I played football and nothing else so I don’t care what others are saying.

“If Cosafa wanted educated people, they would have chosen them but they wanted footballers that’s where we travelled to South Africa,” he said.

The said interview went viral on the social media as it sparkled debate as to whether the player did well by starting with English before switching to Chichewa when the Supersport presenter was asking him the questions.

  1. Kuno ku south Africa amalawi olankhula chizungu chabwinowo akusemza makatoni kwa machina oti sadziwa chizungu ngakhale pang’ono koma sakusekedwa ndiye timuseke Dalitso oti akumayenda ulendo omupangila dziko

  2. That’s what God does. Hv a lesson, it ‘ll b the same that those whom u think r poor, undermined even the speechless, etc, ‘ll b accomodated 2 the kingdom of heaven while i & u ‘ll b perishing coz of being bursy fattening ourselves. Value wisdom & victory than education only. I’ve seen the elites being convicted, what a role education has played? Akanakhala zungu ndiye kuombera manja. Hiiiiiiiii…..! Malawi walero.

  3. player winanso wa kuno ku Tanzania amene anali man of the match pa game ndi malawi, kichuya ananyozedwa kwambiri atalephera kulankhula English pa interview after the game,what we should know is “English is not our mother language”

  4. Kuchita kulephera ndikupeza mwayi omwe otiudzikusangalatsa koma utavaya kusukulu bola osavaya ku xool koma cash ukhale nayo mimwayinso sikutalikira

  5. hahahahahahaa madolo achingelezi ndingodusa nawo. Dalitso satha chingerezi zoona koma naye ndi dolo pachikopa ndipo apitiliza kukuonesani zomwe iye amatha inu pheeee, mutchuka ndi chizungu chanu chophotoka mukulembachi. Ndipo mmene mukulembelamu nde bolanso Sailesi.

  6. Go on Dalitso with ur talent, malawians we are full of jealousy there was another player whom u criticised about education, look now where he is u keep quite now. Proud of u Bidvest player,

  7. Ronadinho mpaka anapanga retire football career yake koma sanayakhuleko english pama interview ake koma amalawi basi komangoti nyonyonyo daliso sailesi mbuli pomwe enanu olo agogo anu ndi aphalbet yomweyi samayiziwa zausilu basi.#Dalitso akunama big up watiyika pa map usavere asasamba atimu yobibira pagolowo

  8. Komkuno Ku Malawi ma China akatilemba ntchito ma shop mwawo timazikakamiza kuyakhulana nawo chingerezi ngakhale sitimachitha chifukwa atilemba ntchito now ma player athuwa nawonsotu ndi ntchito yolembedwa Ali ndi coach wawo Wa chizungu why him kuphuzira kuchiyakhula???? Tisanamizanepo APA anyamata amenewa achititsa manyazi dziko lathu next time asadzapitenso fotseke

  9. Zoona man auzeni English English chani taona azungu ife okanika kulankhula chizungu chao chomwe za ziii mxieee idyani ndalamazo man bakha wina asakusautseni

  10. If you want your language, why you employ English or European coaches ? Tell me. Thus y tikumaluza… the likes of Daliso and other they can’t get the words from an English or European. So because Malawian umbuli ndiwochuluka let it be……..we can’t go anywhere if we are going to have the same midset.

  11. English won’t make Flames win cups. Don’t forget that. This Sailesi boy didn’t need English to play in the Flames.

    Unless if you explain how English will add much value to the productivity of a player, then you might be missing the whole 60 seconds.

    Encourage the boys to score more goals and concede less, then and there will excel in their football career. Any team that is professional will sign a player who does what he is required to do on and off the field, and not any player who is very fluent in English or what superior language you might think of.

    Yes, football, is but just a short term career. Let’s encourage the boys to invest for the future. If they combine football and school, they might, in the future, have an opportunity to work in various offices. Walter Nyamilandu played for University, Nomads and Flames, now works at Illovo and is president of FAM. Peter Pindani is also a UNIMA graduate. Not so sure how far Patrick Mabedi, John Maduka, Ernest Mtawali, Peter Mponda and many more went with their education, but you can’t deny, they didn’t want your so called school to be excellent footballers. Even Frank Mhango. Ena amati Gaba.

    We need silence when Sailesi is speaking.

  12. Even km’chinese kuno alliance itayamba kumene ndi Malawi ankayankhula Chinese pa a Malawi thothotho nde ka excuse ka international ko katayeni.

  13. Vizungu vyavichi apa
    We need to be proud of our language, English we learn it from school, its not a must. Go to other countries you will see it

  14. Kkkkkk..zandisangalasa,,he doesn’t know football carrier z 2 shot,English z a only language we are using to look for jobs in malawi and other foreign countries.

  15. Guys osatengera mbali ayi player amafunika kt adzikhala oyesesa kulankhulapo kachizungu for example one team from SA ; europe and asi yamufuna how he can comminicate with friends apa ndikhulupirira maplayers ena atengerapo mphunziro kt nthawi zina atha kupeza owaphunzitsa maplayer ngati achina messi ; ronaldo amadziwa english : amalawi tamva kmanso tadziona tokha zochitsa manyazizi mtolankhani kuchita kunena kt he dont know english ayi sizilibwino ndithu

  16. And its the most important thing which most of us are missing is that sailesi chizungu amamva coz he never spoke something contrary to what the reporter was asking.

  17. Kudzidelera a Malawi….. nchifukwa milk mid maina a chizungu…… Olo azungu abadwira mMalawi sapatsa and ago maina a chimalawi…… BREAK FREE FROM MENTAL SLAVERY….!

  18. Ine monga phunzitsi Wa chichewa sinkuonapo vuto pa kulankhula chichewa kwa nkuluyu in fact ndampatsa kale 100% chichewa chake chinali chothyakuka bwino inangosowekamo Ndi mikuluwiko Ndi zining’a basi.

  19. It is not good to shout someone for failing to speak English. Not all learners do well in class activities , others are good in extra activities. With Dalitso let us thank him for the talent that he has.This shows that at school he was doing well in sports especially in football .Some of you , you were doing well in other subjects and you were not performing well in sports. Remember Dalitso went there as a player of Malawi National Team not for a club. I think it’ s good to reserve some words that some of us we are using on Dalitso. As a country it can be good to find ways of helping our players who have that problem of speaking English. On the other hand what Dalitso is saying is true. In play- ground what is important most are skills that an individual has in that particular sporting game. Dalitso concentrate on your career . Take care of your office .

  20. Tangovomereza kut chizungu simmatha,koma ndakwiya nanu enanu mukulankhula momunyoza mfanayu,he went to south to replesent our country there4 ngat panali mavuto it means anakhudza tose (nomards fun 4lyf)

  21. Wanangwa Pau Mwafulirwa,my bro now you have spoken. Thank you. It’s indeed a shame. And if you watched him iiiiiiii kkkkk,,,he nearly wanted to run away from the female journalist. Dalitso Sailes man of the match. I understand also that Malawi government has since faulted the Football Association of Malawi for poor dressing of the Flames players. Too bad!

  22. we Africans,we are so jealousy,instead of applauding him,we are busy to overlook Dalitso,,,,,,,,,,very shame,see what Ronaldo’s respondance on his interviews, 95% of his speech is his mother tongue language but no one is insulting him. English is from England,so are we from England??? now you’re busy pointing out Dalitso sailesi with one finger but 4 remaining fingers are pointing yourself,check this out,Big up Sailesi,am proud of you,umatiimilira ada,,,,

  23. Masewera a mpira amandisangalatsa chifukwa kulibe tsankho. Ophunzira, osaphunzira onse amaloledwa kusewera. Mawu amanena kuti ukaipa, dziwa nyimbo. Kuti tidziwe kuti ena amatha chizungu, ndi chifukwa choti Pali ena amene chizungucho chimawavuta. Ngati mumatha chizungu, thank God. Dalitso is still young and mwayi ulipo oti atha kuchita practice good English ngati anthu akufuna kwabwino monga inu mukumunenanu mutabwera poyera.

  24. Anthu opanda kanthu ndi conco. Or atati atolankhani azifunsa player wina aliyense mu English ndiangati angalankhule?Man Dalitso Sailes osakhumudwa umphawi unatikwana kuno ku Malawi ku Ivory Coast Dedier Drocba amalephera English ku Mozambiki Tiko tiko analephera pa Stadium kulankhula English keep gowingforward my Friend

  25. The aim of any interview at the end of any football match is that all people should get the message from both interviewee and journalists. To this end, the only option is to use an international not local language. This is where Sailesi missed it. Much as we may choose to hide behind patriotism to our lacal language, surely that was not a better place. An interpreter, as was the case with Kakhobwe interview, would be ideal.

  26. Dalitso the best way to silence Malawians is to focus on ur business but to me its the time u jack up midoli chepetsa find time to improve ur game being man of the match shud b a spring board not to attack ppo with different views yo urs,u will never learn

  27. What I know and believe is that if some pple talk about u it means u r above them. So Sailes is above those critising him

    Bravooooo Sailes!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. Malawians always gud at pointing faults and mistakes, we’ve seen coaches using an interpreter right there at cosafa, English is not a selection criteria for our players, let’s learn to appreciate what are are doing.Bravo Sailesi never mind those who can’t see gud things

  29. Iam here ln SA bt what l was discaved is that the most fundamental thing is that you must know to speak English kkk ena adachotsa ntchito chifukwa chokanika ku lankhula english ndi mavuto abale wonsabakila munthu pa zinthu zopunsa gati yizi watichititsa manyanzi muwunzeni apitenso ku sukulu

  30. This is what a white man can do. Make you look down upon your own language, bleaching your own skin, putting extensions on your hair. Africa wake up.

    Have you ever heard Messi speak English???????

  31. Umbuli ndi matenda evn mumuikile kumbuyo ndi chitsilube bas coz sogolo lake lithela m’malwi bas he cnt go other countries vuto lomajambula ma ninja .’Makope instead uzilemba ma exercise ku xul

    Nsanje ibweresa kaduka dats y our country is failing to move 4ward jst bcoz we look only at mistakes for som1 regardless of everything . u r trying to pull him down but remember wh jah bless no man curse . ..I rest my case

  35. Be brave worry nothing,what has been given to u,will be yours.The world praises when u are a master of evil but when u made gud things,fools,fool themselves.

  36. Anthu muli bize kubakirj Dalitso pa za Interview yake ya chichewa kuti palibe chovuta kuyankhula chichewa chabwino funso langa nali poti tikumva kuti matimu angapo aku Jonz ko akufuna kodi akapita azikayankhula chichewacho?

  37. He is talking shit. Why then has he just become a talk of the nation. He is still young he can learn. The interview was also part of the mission.

  38. silly defence. at the status malawi is today no one does not expect a young man like him fail to express himself in english. shame to those who even back up this boy 4 failing to continue with english in the interviews. nanga mwanayu atati wathyoka, apitirira kusewera mpira? nde zikazatero adzalowera kuti? mmalo momulimbikitsa za sukulu mwanayu inu muli buzy nkumuyamikira kuti sunalakwitse poti ndiwe prayer. zaziii!

  39. Don’t be surprised when karma catches up with y’all who mocks someone’s grammar or accents. Y’all need to decolonise your mindsets and accept the fact that broken English is an official language

  40. Sailes did what he knows best. He knows how tu pray football not English. More over Malawi watchuka pa superspot coz of him being man ot the match. Anthu amafuna udzilume hahaha kip it up Sailesi. Proud ov u & unayankha bhoooooo

  41. Messi amayankhula language yakwawo wina nkumachta kupanga interpret koma palibe anamusekako or kumpanga criticise, koma popeza nd player wa kumalawi nde mwapeza zoyankhula. i dont see any problem there olo akanayankha interview yonse mchichewa

  42. Onyoza chiyankhulo chake ameneyo ndi ndowe za galu , amene akuziwa chizungu kuti muawone ena ali ndi machende okha fuck Malawian people suzatheka Malawi.

  43. JUST ACCEPT U FAILED ENGLISH COZ U DONT KNOW IT, DONT TRY SUGARCOATING YOUR FAILURE, JUST BECAUSE SOMEONE GOES TO PRAY AT CHURCH DOES NOT MEAN HE/she shouldn’t care about how he looks when going there. Football and English don’t have separation, its communication. Learn abit of basic English and be able to write like this and speak a little.

  44. Amene mukut amatha englishwo satha mpira, ndpo sitidawamverepo kuyankhula just because sadakhalepo man of the match on the international scene!!

  45. SITOSE OPHUZIRA ,IYEYU ALI NDI TALENT YOMENYA MPIRA KOMA .KOMA CHIZUNGU NJEE,PAMENE ENANUO MUMADZIWA KUYAKHURA ENGLISH KOMA KUBA KU LITHO!!!! Zaziiii

  52. If you are in South Africa and you speak English to the locals despite them having the knowledge of the foreign language they’ll tell you I’m not white man angikuzwa baba uthini yet they can hear you. Some Malawians were born like that pretending as if they know yet they are ignorant than Dalitso Sailesi.

  53. Zawonetseratu kuti ambiri sitidziwa kuti kuyankhula english is affected by invironment.munthu ongophunzira english kusukulu ngati anthu akwawo amayankhula chichewa choka,sangayankhule english fluently ngati munthu amene kwawo kumayankhulidwa english throughout.
    Mwa chitsanzo ineyo,ndalemba mayeso a english language ambiri ndipo sindinalephelepo,but am not fluent in english.

  54. Komatu akanakhala kuti ndi mbuli bwezi asanayankhe kenakalikonse,coz mtolankhani yo amafunsa nchizungu,koma iye amayankha chakwawo zomwe zikusonyeza kuti iye amamva

  55. Dalitso Sailes akafunse Albert Mpinganjira zimene anachita ku Joni komweko.Anathawa atolankhani game itangotha kumene panene iyeyo ndiamene anasewera bwino kwambiri ngakhale Malawi inaluza game imeneyo.mpila wake unathela ku Nyasaland komkuno koma pa mpila Albert Mpinganjila anali dolo.

  56. I don’t hate Dalitso Sailesi neither the media houses but the way we represent the issue as if he (Dalitso Sailesi) did something recommendable. One thing that will remain the fact is that he is not educated. Za luso lakelo matters less.

  57. Nothing is wrong Dalitso you deserve it,nowhere in the world you can go with African Language, so if they don’t understand shame for them.Big up!!!

  58. But we need to encourage him , from that day he must learn to speak English becauce now his well known with many countries . And we can compare chichewa with other languages like Portuguese ,German ,Kiswahili ,etc . those languages is famous than ours maybe 5 or 6 countries speaking the same language while us Only zambia (aneba) if am not wrong.
    What disgusting me even you adm why. Mukulemba khani yochitisa manyazi ngati imeneyi muchizungu moti tingodziwana tokha tokha zithele komkuno. Eishi!!!!!!

  59. Sailes has got it wrong. He is trying to make us believe that footballers are uneducated, which is incorrect. English is a language and not a measure of ones education levels or intelligence. There are highly trained professionals in different fields across the world that have difficulties with the English language. Their is no need for him to try and defend himself because the ones trying to criticise him ndi amene ali mbuli. Bwana Sailesi just mind your business.

  60. Football Goes Together With Language.Being Intervied With Ss Journalst Could Make This Guy Kumvedwa Ndi Anthu Ochuluka Omwe Ena Amafuna Ma Player Lke Him,its Only malawians Omwe Anamumva Bwino Mmalo Modzigulitsa Pa International!

  61. Malawians Y Not B Happy Wit Talent?I Lyk Botswana Very Much Bcoz They Boost Their Mother Toungue,they Conserv Their Local Languege Not English,Critstian Ronaldo 4 Example,amayankhula Portugees Durin Interviews,do We Blame Em?Or His Country Do They Blame Em,?kma Umbuli,ulukhu Ndzomwe Znapanga 4c Kt Mbuli Zaku Malawi Zimpange Critisise Superstar D,sailes,after O He Iz Man Of The Much + Man Of D Moment In SA From Malawi.

  62. We know you asa footballer not a linguistic buddy!!!!!

    I love you on the football turf not in your grammar. Iwe si mnzungu kuti akukakamize chingerezi, iyaaaaaah!!! Phazi lakolo speaks football best more than English that’s why you’re awarded something relevant to what you did best!!!

    Kapena amalawi mukufuna shashayi asinthe dzina akhale ((Blessings Silence))?

    Bravoooooooo!!!!!!

  63. Dali analakwitsa kuyankhula chichewa???? Mumafuna ayankhule chi2mbuka???? Sndkuonapo vuto apa ine, Kakhobwe anayankhula chichewa kma palibe chomwe mwanena bwa???? Mbuli ndinu anzanu akupanga ndlama,

  64. Apa mukumlimbikitsa Dalitsoyu,
    Yet you’re doing anything possible even kugona ndi njala kuti ana anu aphunzile kukana u Dalitso-Sailes wu.

  65. Kodi coach akafuna kusankha ma player amatengera chizungu kapena skill .paja sukulu imangochotsa umbuli osati uchitsiru eti?? Fuck off

  66. Hahaha!!to talk without fear or favour nothing wrong with this Gentleman it was his right to talk his language + he use his freedom so dont victimise this young man,akadakhara Messi simukanamuseka amalawi muli ndi bvuto ur good in correcting others mistakes.

  67. Unlike Zambia which has over 70 and almost completely different languages, Malawi is a predominantly Chichewa country and I see no problem by the young man switching into his mother tongue, Christiano Ronaldo goes into Portuguese despite his English knowledge, most boxers from South America uses Spanish for interviews even if asked in English

  68. Neba, kwinaku nkupsa mtima ndakuona. Poti ma player ako onse abwera manjamanja/chaje .

    Maplayer athu anapita kukasewera mpira wamapazi ndipo abwerako bwino iwenso ukudziwa. Zadzizungu zako usatichedwetse

  69. Thus why I Live in Tanzania where people are well civilized.speaking good English doesn’t define intelligence.intelligence is when you know how to symplyfy things to production.

  70. kodi odziwa chizungunu munatani kukasewela national team tonene zoona chizungu ndichofunika koma ngati suyankhula chizungu sizikutanthauza kuti sungapange zinthu zina zotukula dziko lako wina prayer waku Rwanda walankhula mbola bola sailesi anayesetsa kupwapwata ka ngende kkkk

  71. guyz uja anakuchinyani watanzania kichuya bwanji amafunsidwa chizungu kma amayankha chiswahili,munavapo akulengezedwa ngat mukupanga mbutuma inu paa mundilakwitsa

  72. Patheba pano ndimaona maplayer kumapangidwa interview mu English koma mkumayankha mu chizulu,kulinso coach wa Baloka fc akamapangidwa interview samayankha English always koma amalawi nsanje idzatipha mmh lets learn to respect and encourage on wat others are doing in order to develop our country.

  73. even Louis Enrique and Zinedine Zidane does not speak English. Wake up Africans. its only us who laugh when someone is failing to speak English.

  74. coach wa Mauritiaz anayankhula thru an enterprtr,mulandu palibe,Messi wa Baccelona,cizungu vuto,mbulizo zikupanga ndalama,ife tikucedwa nd cizungu,tidya cizungu?mway ndiwosiyana

  75. Nde Atayankhula Chichewacho,man Of The Match Award Sanamupatse? Kapena Anasintha Ndkusankha Odziwa Kulankhula Chizungu?? Inu Ziyankhulan Chizungucho Uko Mukumwa Midoli Mbali Inayi Mukukanda Anzanu Akupanga Mbiri Nd Ndalama…..Nsanje Too Much Pa Mw Eeish!!!

  76. Do a census and find a number of players who doesnt know how to speak English, if only sailes is a failure then stone him with all insults of your choice.

    • Well said broh, we all know that most Malawian players have not gone far with education and nowadays our education standards have gone down, and am not even surprised when our graduates these days fail to communicate with proper english.

  77. Tingoti mwina chinali chisangalaro nangasi munthu kanali koyamba kusankhidwa kukhala wosewera woposa wonse mumasewera akulu ngati awa.Tiyeni tingonyadira kuti apambana, koma chizungucho mmmmmmm aaaaaaaaa sinditengapo mbali kkkkkkk

  78. he is right.he didn’t go to south africa to speak english.God gives differently thus why you and i were not in the football pitch to play but he was bcoz he is good and we are not.seriously malawians be patriotic.are you telling me that you haven’t seen professional football players in english premier league or big leagues in spain speaking their home country languages.learn to appreciate others as they are because everyone has strengths and their own weaknesses. always proud of flames.

  79. Honestly I’m % behind Dalitso, he made me proud Malawian, u will never hear German people responding in English even if they’re being interviewed in English, they do speak their on tongue, bcos they do value their language.. So what’s wrong with us Africans, When one of us respond in his own tongue, we call him/her uneducated?..

  80. Hahahahaha its better dat guy from Rwanda he tried wit his broken English its a shame boy 21 yrs????? Big up try to practice rememba u ll b going to other countries n English its international language plz yaaaa u pipo u can say its jealous BT no naaa tel hm to practice English its a shame 21yrs. Kkkkkkkkkkkkk

  81. nkhaniyi yangolowa nsanje za masapoter a timu ijayi yokodzera pagolo ija,,,,,,,,, akudabwa kuti bwanji awo sanakhale mn of the match ……….. Remember chonyozeka pamaso pa munthu Mulungu sachiona chimodzimodzi, iye amasankha zooneka zonyozeka kapena zopepukaxo kuti odzitenga oyenera akazindikire coona

  82. Those critisms shows that many malawians dont watch soccer at international level, those who always follow international soccer they got no problem with a player who responded in his language because most proffessional footballers in the world they speak their mother language..its only in southern africa whre people still bliv english is an international language

  83. Munthu akalakwisa kuvomekedza amalawi kodi tidzavomeledza liti zinthu zikalakwika Dalitso analakwisa amene akachedza naye sa antha chichewa mwanayi mpira amatha kwambiri ndi chifukwa wakhala man of the match

  88. I tried to be Extremely quite on this issue since from the start,,,, but It is getting out of hand I guess.. Anyway, who do we have to blame! The Government or Sailesi himself??? For the fact that we were under British Colonial, yes we were suppose to speak good English atleast….. But do we have good teachers in our respective schools who does provide better education right from Nursery up to the Universities??? Let us be fair!

  89. Inenso Im Not For Nbb But I Hav No Problem With Sailesi. He Is A National Material And Anything We Do To Demoralize Him Will Not Only Affect Him But The Nation At Large. Timanena Zomwezo Kwa Gaba Lero Gaba Afika Pati. A Malawi Mtima Wa Jealous Sutithandiza. Nanga Uja Amayankha Mchiswahili Ma Interview Bwanji Simukumunena. Iam Not For Bb But I Will Support Any Player Wa Bb Who Plays In The National Team.

    • Amwene ineyo sikuti ndikudana naye dalitso Ai koma tiyeni tikambe zoona English ndiyofunika paliponse.technology Kaye ndinene kuti zinthu zambiri zikupangidwa mu English, English is international language. Ufunika kumaunika zonse achimwene.

    • What about Lionel Andrew Messi does he speaks English coz i never heard him before, so it embarrassing as to Argentina nation? Kumayankhula ngati muli ndimutu mn kumachangamuka

    • Kikikik,,,, kodi ine ndimayankha zilizonse ngati? Messi is another idiot bro.Am sorry to say this but it is unwelcome move for a professional player responding in his home language. We all know English is an international language; we should make no mistake. Talent or fame without education is useless.

    • Of course in Malawi setting English language is taught in school so it becomes, in part, a measure of intelligence. And, if someone speaks English well it usually shows they have been to school. If you haven’t been school in Malawi, it is very likely that you cannot English. That’s the case with our talented player. However, we cannot conclude that he’s dull. We can only conclude that he has been to school, which is embarrassing anyway. Mainly at that age. Sure @ MacKnowledge Achair Maliro. You weren’t wrong

    • Wanangwa Pau Mwafulirwa problem with us African who still prefer white wedding and call our marriage traditional forgetting that white wedding is a traditional wedding to white people have that tendency that white people used to blindfold us with,imagine a black child laughing he/her tummy out because of a black child who can’t speak English fluently….can they Lough if a white can speak a broken chichewa?

    • I am the Seal of Comments. Dalitso Sailesi was never wrong. Language is anything that humans use to communicate.
      We heard him, and if “they” didn’t hear him, well, we’re here to interpret that to “them”.

      I am sure both of us have been in that moment in a tough exam where you don’t know an answer to a particular question and just end up scribbling anything as long as it means filling the answer sheet.

      Kumawasokonezako bongo angeleziwa inu, aaaaa!

  90. Iwe admin tandipasa maina a ma player osaphuzira ku bullets ko ndifuna ndi aziwe lero komaso amalawi sitizatheka bakili anayambisa xool yaulere koma ai osapita koma kumakakumba mbewa

  91. The issue here is not about what is important btwn English and playing football, it is about a football player who represented Malawi in an international game whose design and practice uses a certain medium of communication. So both are important. Almost all football rules, standards and philosophies are in English at least for Malawi. One can be a good football player but I am sure he misses something if he can not converse in English. We shud be encouraging the young man to do what he can to learn it. We are not assisting him by saying there is no problem about it. There can’t be a problem yes if he has no ambition but if he wants anything higher then English adds value. It is an official language in numerous countries.

    • If he wants a soccer career some efforts must be made to learn the language. Gaba speaks English and is able to communicate well. As I said if he doesn’t aim high then it’s okey but if his interest to go higher than this then I feel he has an obligation.

    • To compare Messi and Dalitso Sailesi is the same as comparing a boy born in Blantyre staying in Blantyre and has football skills with another born in Johannesburg who has skills of football in that area, both do not speak English but one speaks Africans and another Chewa and you say they are equal! For the sake of an argument you can say so but realistically one of them has huge advantage.

    • To cut the story short you english people join sports so that u will be speaking english to sports analyst may be our football team will start winning once players akayamba kuyankhula chizungu

    • English won’t make Flames win cups. Don’t forget that. This Sailesi boy didn’t need English to play in the Flames.

      Unless if you explain how English will add much value to the productivity of a player, then you might be missing the whole 60 seconds.

      Encourage the boys to score more goals and concede less, then and there will excel in their football career. Any team that is professional will sign a player who does what he is required to do on and off the field, and not any player who is very fluent in English or what superior language you might think of.

      Yes, football, is but just a short term career. Let’s encourage the boys to invest for the future. If they combine football and school, they might, in the future, have an opportunity to work in various offices. Walter Nyamilandu played for University, Nomads and Flames, now works at Illovo and is president of FAM. Peter Pindani is also a UNIMA graduate. Not so sure how far Patrick Mabedi, John Maduka, Ernest Mtawali, Peter Mponda and many more went with their education, but you can’t deny, they didn’t want your so called school to be excellent footballers. Even Frank Mhango. Ena amati Gaba.

    • We are now having coach wa chizungu- how is he going to communicate with him? Am asking you,you are saying that there is not connection between football and English. Coach azilankhula much chichewa? Tell me!!!! Daliso could have done that witty conscious/deliberately. But there it was not like that. He failed. …Daliso you must know the shape of black board! !!!

    • Mmmm mainstream views,,,i dont think you are considerate enough try to think in a disability way possibly u myt notice why some fail to perform other things which are able to,,,, i see no connection between communication and football period

    • This guy is right (Nditani)let’s encourage our footballers that atleast they need English.Though talent and school are two different things but if they can have chances to play abroad they need English.if u compare Ronaldo or Messi their languages are familiar in other countries rather than our local chichewa. So English and talents go together now.Big up to Sailesi and our goal keeper

  92. Mphwanga Dalitso…zako izo ukulankhulazo…bola watengerapo phunziro kufunikira kwa English…akukulimbisa mtimawa sakukukonda…udakayendabetu…next time uzayenda ulendo wawekha ndipomwe uzaziwe.

Jorna……”makes very difficult aswel for the team to progress given this results”… Dalitso….”Yeah aaah to my country tikudziwa kut kwaifeyo stimafuna kut zchitike chonch komano ndimmene zakhalira tinthokoza Mulungu kut zakhala chonchi”… Kkk Dalitso umatipanga represent…ukabwera uzatenge mphatso ina yomwe amalawi takukonzera watiimilira kwabac… Iwe ndi za ⚽⚽ ✍ *Pliz yemwe ali ndi Nyimbo ya Phungu Joseph Mkasa mutu wake*_(Tumizani ana Ku School)_ *andipatseko Ku inbox* _Tonny B_ akuifuna atanvera

  94. yes some can speak chizungu but even 100kach in ther pocket. but busy kupepha ya mogo. 65% of people in our country our language is chichewa.nothing wrong mr.that is fact

    • I was in aclub another guy ask me why do malawian players fail to express in English I was like ‘”mmm Even me I don’t know may be if you can ask Malawians kkk:” That was embarrassing dude

    • hahahaha for sure we cant compare with ronaldo,tevez, messi those went to football academy when they were Young and in their country they learn in their mother lang. not english like in Malawi

    • Inenso ndikudabwa kuti anthu akkukamba za messi, Rinaldo, koma tevez pamene amene aja maiko akwao ngati messi ndi tevez amayankhula Spanish ( Argentina) ndipo anapita Ku Spain komwe amayankhulanso Spanish pamene Rinaldo kwao ndi Ku Portugal komwe amayankhula Portuguese ndiye anaphuzila Spanish.ndiye mufuna kufunaniza ndi Malawi komwe timayankhula chichewa chlmwo sichili international language ngati Spanish kapena Portuguese.

    • Tisaname English ndiyofunika paliponse ngakhale phone kaya computer kaya zikwangwani zapanseu zili mu English. Mukadzayenda mudzadziwa kuti English ndiyofunika. Ukuyankhula bwanji chichewa maiko oti salankhula chichewa? Ndipo mukavana bwanji?

  97. Amalawi timaona ngat kuyankhula ngende ndekut wafikapo iweyo..lets accept that we are Africans and as Africans we have to be more proud of our local languages that this so called English which is taken as a great superior language.To hell with that..umakwana dalitso umatiimilira.

    • Mmmm English is international language musaname APA.masiku ano chilichonse chili mu English ngati ngati phone, computer, ndizina zambiri zili mu English. Ndiye wina uzidzilimbits mtima kuti English ndiyopanda ntchito.

  98. Lets be honest here this is just a rivarly of clubs i see no problem with sailes broken english and a switch from english to chichewa in an interview, azungu akabwera kuno sitimawaseka akalakwatsa chichewa chathuchi koma ife poti anthu akuda timazinyoza tokha timaona ngati chilichonse chathu nchoipa koma za chizungu basi, almost each and everyone interviewed in cosafa was speaking his mother tongue why Malawians kunyozana because of language, its high time Africans and Malawians inclusive shud realise that English is not an instrument for measuring intelligence, Sailes well done lad
