“I had the privilege of working with such a passionate, committed, and astute leader who had the foresight of transforming Malawi football.

“He will forever remain a legend of Malawi football.May His Soul Rest In Peace,” said Nyamilandu Manda.

Writing on his Facebook Page, former SULOM president Tiya Somba said Malawi football indebted to Chibowa for the TNM Super League sponsorship.

“As we ask God to receive your soul we also thank Him for giving Kaka the football brains and great contributions to Malawi football,” he said.
