The Athletics Association of Malawi (AAM) has said it has come up with an amended draft constitution in line with Sports Councilâ€™s directive.
During AAMâ€™s annual general meeting last month, Sports Council gave the newly elected AAM executive committee 90 days [from September end] to amend the associationâ€™s constitution.
AAM president Godfrey Phiri said the draft constitution will be submitted to the affiliates for their input.
â€œWe are hopeful that by mid-November, we will have submitted the amended constitution to Sports Council for their perusal,â€ said Phiri.
â€œThe constitution will guide us in planning our activities,â€ he said.
During the AGM, Sports Council executive secretary George Jana noted that there were many flaws in the current AAM constitution which needed to be rectified.
â€œMake sure that in 90 days there is one constitution agreeable and approved, failure of which the executive will be moved out using the powers conferred upon the council,â€ Jana warned.
In a related development, the AAM president said they are scheduled to meet Diaribord on Tuesday to review sponsorship of the Chingâ€™ombe Marathon.
He said the tournament will help prepare athletes for the Southern Africa Cross-Country to be held in Lesotho next February.
