…Bullets fined K800,000

The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has banned for one year a Kamuzu Barracks official for asking the association’s president Walter Nyamilandu to resign.

FAM has fined and banned Kamuzu Barracks Team Manager Francis Shawa after he criticised the association and called for the resignation of its president during an interview following a game between Nyasa Big Bullets and Kamuzu Barracks.

Shawa banned.

Nyasa Big Bullets Football Club have also been fined over incidents that happened when the two teams faced each other in the Carlsberg Cup Round of 16 at Chilomoni Stadium on 26th July 2017.

The FA has laid out a year-long ban to Shawa and has fined him K600,000 on two charges leveled against him which the football governing body says had to convene and arrive at weeks ago.

In a statement which Malawi24 has seen which has been signed by FAM’s Secretary General Alfred Gunda, Shawa was found guilty of undermining the FA’s authority in reference to the Cup’s Rules and Regulations Article 24.15 as well as of making statements which the FA believes placed it into disrupt citing Article 24.16.

He has been fined K300,000 on each of the two charges and has been issued with a year-long ban. He has up to the end of the season to pay the fine and 48 hours to appeal.

Malawi24 had earlier quoted him in a post-match interview after his side’s 4-5 loss on post-match penalties saying the FA has failed to manage the game of football in Malawi.

During the same interview he also called for the resignation of FAM president Nyamilandu.

Nyasa Big Bullets Club, however will have to cough K800,000 for pitch invasion at half time and at full time – a charge for which the team has been fined K500,000 – and failure to control its fans from displaying improper conduct as they beat up Kamuzu Barracks’ official Mabvuto Namwada which sees the team paying K300,000.

According to FAM, the incidents showed lack of respect for Articles 24.10 and 24.12 of the Rules and Regulations of the Cup.

Bullets have been asked to adhere to this ruling before their next assignment and have the option of appealing the ruling in the next 48 hours.

During the game, Bullets banked on the heroics of Yamikani Fodya who converted the last penalty of the match after the two sides settled for a one all draw in normal time.

  1. Any FA could have banned or fined Mr Shawa.. Discipline is a Paramount feature in football.. Freedom goes with responsibility. You insult others and claim to be exercising your freedom of speech? Understand freedom please.

  3. Punishment meted on Mr Shawa by the country’s FA will attract mixed views on the part of supporters because they know or don’t what football football discipline.I remember Sir Alex Ferguson was fined £4,000 for blaming an officiating person for a result which didn’t go his team’s way.So too was Jose Mourihno.By showering insults to the FA gaffer through the media was an issue thought to likely have brought football into disrepute.In football discipline starts with the officials themselves that is guys on the technical panel.As others have already stated football and politics are totally different from each other in as far as discipline is concerned.Every organization has its own ways of instilling discipline to own people.

  4. Football will no longer develop In this country unless this so called Nyamilandu kicked out of power. He failed to rule in all circumstances’ of football then he decide to oppress fans not call him down stupidity

  5. kkkkk no sense in nyamilandu he haz no factor in hiz carrier h …iz idyot on..shawa u were rght ti say he shud part wez …fam iz not hiz garden…go nyamilandu ndiwe kazizi opanda phindu

  6. anyamilandu uku ndikupha masewera ampira zomwe mwachitazi ngat sunapite ku xool lingalilan bwino tili munyengo ya democracy not dictating every one has got right to exercing his /her rights

  7. To say the trueth i wanted to #comment on this stuff bt am #afraid i my get #banned too because it seems like whats next is to ban all the people who are against #FAM what do you call the #president bt yaah am #behind what is #called #FREEDOM_OF_EXPRESSION since our #indepents_day 1964 i guess we left other people who need to be #reminded about this is #democratic_malawi and aslong as i here this word #FAM it ends with #MALAWI meaning to say everything #works under democracy and i #dont see areason to #ban someone who #speaks what he #feels like to speak.

  8. The ban on KB official is uncalled for. Even a day old baby knows that the body running football affairs in the country is on the opposite side of efficient. All they know and, act without delay, are fines to football teams. These people at FAM, hire 200+ policemen and women to ensure law and order prevail at matches. A football fan enters the pitch in full view of these overpaid police guys, and all FAM does is fine the club for failure to controll their supporters!!!
    One wonders, should teams go to football grounds with their own security details?? And as if that is not ridiculous enough, these lazy policemen are not paid by FAM, but the very teams FAM milks!!!
    The national team, The Flames, is another comedy unfolding year in, year out. To ensure the football fraternity in the country do not get bored, the gods at FAM go to Europe and scout for a shoe repairer to orchestrate the Flames Comedy!!
    Now, looking at the above senarios, would calling for the resignation of the man heading this organistion lacking football management skills, really warrant banning somebody?? What should the people that pay at stadia gates to watch matches do?? Clap hands and sing praises??
    Teams in Malawi are hardly sponsored. The few that get anywhere near sponsorship, do not have in their budgets, a line for crowd trouble fines. These fines must go to the people brewing the trouble, after all, they are identifiable!! But due to laziness by both the Police and their paymasters at FAM, clubs are easy targets for their obscene fines!!

  9. Hahahahaha munthu akalankhula walakwitsa? Kunena zoona bwalo limene lija silimayenera kuchita host match ngati imeneija, muli ndi mwayi chifukwa idawina ndi BB koma ikadawina KB mukadaona!!! Football administration is worse in Malawi!!!

  10. According to FIFA football is game of peace.
    No matter what rank or position you hold at a particular club whether military or civilian respect for those who run the FA is a must.
    He is lucky to be given a one year ban he deserved more years.
    Being in the military he would have been exemplary.
    This kind of military talk brings hate among players and officials which can erupt into a war.
    Thumbs up FAM for bringing sanity to these military officials.

  11. And I say it again, Nyamilandu and his team must step down/resign. They have brought the game of football into disrepute. We are tired of their unsporting behaviour and fines. Is Walter Nyamilandu a god in the football circles? Yes, you must resign, you can also ban me if you want.

  12. this is alter nonsense, why only in malawi football is moving backward,? #nyamilandu you are the biggest fool in the world, you have failed ndipo you ve to resign as soon as possible

  13. M’malawi sazazindikira mpaka kale kale.Ine sindikumvetsa Democracy pa mpira? Pamenepa mukufuna kunena chani?.Ooh kapena mufuna muziyambitsa zitsokonezo m’mipira chifukwa kuli democracy?.Kumpiratu sichowopsesera anthu amene aja ndimasewero,osati anthu azilephera kukaonera mipira chifukwa chazitsokonezo.Nyamilandu atule pansi udindo chifukwa choti FAM ikupele zilango kumateam osokoneza?.Kumpira kumapita ena oti sali mbali iliyonse yateam,ndiye aziopa kukaonera mipira?.Nthawi zina anthuni muzimvetsa zinthuzi.Team yosafuna kulipira,isamayese dala kuyambitsa zitsokonezo,ndipo ndalazo zimachepa,azionjezere.KUMPIRA SIKOWOPSESERA ANTHU.

  14. The main problem with Malawian football is not Fam but clubs themselves. I wonder how people who follow European teams like Man U and Liverpool blame their coaches and the executive members for failing to recruit good quality players and then back home they blame fam for clubs’ failure to recruit quality players. But it’s none of my business anyway

  15. ngati mutharika akudzudzulidwa poyera koma salimbana nawo nde kanyamilandu nkandani?iyaaa zandinya ndipo atulepansi udindo…..hahaha tidzudzule kuti nyamilandu azipsa mtima

  16. Sindikuvesesa ma comments ena kodi team ikaluza ndi Nyamilandu? team siinasunge mwambo ndi Nyamilandu, ? mwangolowesapo ndale ndi udani wa kwamakolo a Bullets nenani zina zilango zimakupezani kaamba ka uchitsilu kusadziwa udindo wanu pa masewera mumatenga ngati ndeu musade Nyamilandu

  17. Ngakhale ku mangalande official wa team akayankhula zosakhala bwino amapatsidwa chilango. Ngakhale ma official a team akakana kuyankhula ndi atolankhani ndi mlandu. So Shawa anaonjeza, he deserves punishment. Koma punishment yo yakula.

  18. Nde mu banner angati? FAM embrace democratic principles, and be accommodative respect dissenting views otherwise you’re sending wrong signals by becoming too dictatorial remember we are in democratic dispensation.

  19. FAM has goofed up at issuing a useless ban on Shawa for expressing his views.Calling Nyamilandu,the out of steam FAM President to resign ,doesn’t warrant a ban.

  20. Water Nyamilandu must resign he has done his part and failed miserably to manage football affairs in Malawi. National team nd I iyo ingoluza. We need a administration. Thus my opinion

  21. Abale kodi kumupiraku kulibe ziwonesero? kodi kumupira kulibe democracy yalankhula? Ku politics wamukulu akapanga chiganinzo chorakwika ma (NGO) pompo ziwonesero bwanji kumupira? kodi m’malawi mulibe wanzeru kuposa nyamilandu? amalawi okonda zamasewero tiyeni tichitepo kathu.

  22. Where on earth is this nonsense tolerated? I guess only Malawi Football. So many people have been calling Malawi President to resign, did he ban those people from Politics or parliament? Even FIFA President at one point was called to resign, were those people banned? President Zuma was called to resign, did he ban those people? May be there is a clause in FAM constitution which says if you ask FAM President to resign you shall be banned for one year? Where is FAM getting powers to ban critics?

  23. That’s foolish FAM tulani pasi azanu ayeseko kodi azeru ndinunokha kodi kunena chilugamo zithu sizikuyenda athu akatsutsa mawa bana is that’s a solution

  24. I Hate Nyamilandu Most I Don’t Understand Y He Is Still Incharge Of Fam Kod Kukolola Kuja Ankanena During The Time Of Elections They Were Tryng To Mean Getting Funds Thru Punishng Teams?

  25. thus unfair remember we are in democratic country…… where is freedom of expression?. ……. calling someone to resign it’s not a wrong thing bullshit fam

  26. Fam ikubwera ndi zigamulo zosemphana ndi Mpira koma wazidani ngakhale Peter muthalika amauzidwa ndi anthu kuti atule pasi udindo koma sitinamvepo kuti munthu olankhulayo wapatsidwa chilango apa zikuonetseratu kuti ulamulo wa Fam ndiwankhanza

  27. Foolish fools of FAM…is really this a democratic malawi where ppo r to speak their minds….kodi mukuzitenga ngati za kumtundu eti?Nyamilandu must fall..ban me again in malawi

  28. if this is true then I can now agree with the KB official that Nyamilandu is killing football in Malawi, this will not take our football anywhere, but Nyamilandu has somewhere to go the earlier the better

  29. Vuto a Fam amadana ndichilungamo…nanga walakwa chani Francis Nthukwa Shaba…mwana waaNanjunga??? Maule mumawatenga ngati munda wanu oti muzikololerapo chuma…koma zonsezi Mulungu akuona.No wonder our National team is not perfoming kamba ka ma administrator ake amenewa.

  30. That’s not fair! Is there any freedom of speech here! Challenge this verdict in the court of laws they can reverse this! Yes it’s football not politics, but follow court assistance to be heard!

  31. Football isn’t politics if u fail to do yo part don’t blame someone on yo failures I think sometimes we just do things or say some things outa of jealousy…..Giving Shawa a one yr ban in think it’s a gud way to go we should learn to respect those in big positions if we admire those posts then let’s wait for our appointed time to take over those positions rather than insulting them for nothing…

  32. Mwayambo a FAM kufuna kukokera. Mpaka 800, 000 mukufuna ma player adzikusewerera inu mudzidya ndalamazo. Munthu kudandaula ndi kulakwa ndiye mpaka 600,000 komatu Olira samutseka pakamwa tengani mudye ndalamazo koma tsoka kwa iwo odyera a mphawi.
