Death has been announced of former Civo Service United, Escom United and Flames forward Noel Mkandawire.
According to information sourced by Malawi24, the 39-year-old passed on at Mzimba District Hospital on Saturday afternoon after a long battle with a liver problem which was causing his stomach to swell. His left leg was also swollen with a possible cancerous diagnosis.
Nicknamed “Amfumu” because of his dribbling ability, Mkandawire led Escom to their first ever TNM Super League title when he was signed from Civo Service.
He was also part of the Malawi National Football team during the days of Kim Splidsboel, Yasin Osman and Kinnah Phiri.
His condition worsened earlier this year and was transferred to his home district where he has passed on.
Burial arrangements will be announced later but he is likely to be buried on Monday at Euthini in the same district of Mzimba.
