No pressure: Walter says not willing to step down

Walter Nyamilandu Malawi Football

…We need luck, says RVG

Football Association of Malawi (FAM), President Walter Nyamilandu has thrown to the ground calls for him to step down in the wake of the national football team’s poor form.

The calls got heightened by a trending post on the social media, which apparently announced they are planned protests against the Nyamilandu led FA.

Nyamilandu says not ready to step down.

Malawi24 understands that the vigils which were slate for today have been moved to Tuesday next week paving way for President Peter Mutharika’s engagement at the Trade Fair Grounds in Blantyre.

The critics accuse Nyamilandu of complacency caliming he is ‘not doing anything’ as the Flames poor run of form under the mentorship of Belgian Ronny Van Geneugden.

The Flames lost 0-3 against Morocco in the African Cup of Nations qualifier on Saturday at Stade Muhammad V stadium.

The result meant Morocco moves above Malawi into the third position with the same number of points but the North African side has a better goal difference.

Earlier on, Comoros Island and Cameroon played to a 1-all draw which saw the league leaders maintaining their number one status in group B.

Flames mauled

On Tuesday, the Flames also lost 0-1 yesterday in a friendly against Kenya,.

But Nyamilandu insists he has not failed and will not step down as he is being called to.

Coach RVG is also quote in the media as hinted his charges and tactics have not failed saying the Flames are only but lacking luck.

He says should the team break the losing jinx, Malawians will reckon what his football philosophy holds.



  1. Nyamilandu anakasiyira ena tsopano he has done his part whether wachita bwino or not in all his tenure that is a story for another day BUT as someone who played soccer though dismally & as a well educated Guy like him. I think that he could have done much much better. So the best way is to bow down honourably I guess.

  2. Poor performance is tantamount to termination of employment in any business entity. FAM uses taxpayers and we need good and fair results for Flames. don’t we have other football administrators in Malawi to help the national team? Flames performance has reached embarrassing level and something needs to be done quickly. People only eat our taxes at FAM and they are doing literally nothing to enhance Flames performance.

    I wholeheartedly join those for Nyamilandu’s step down. He is not alone to administer football in Malawi. There are alot of we can trust to do the job. He (Walter) must go!

  3. It took support from football lovers for Walter to be the FA Boss. Those at the helm of the FA before him did not allow him to contest. So the football fans must also show him the way out. So sad that a person who was a national team player can see nothing wrong when the team is performing miserably.
