Civil Service United FC on Sunday elected a new executive which will be in office for the next two years.
The elections, which took place at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe, saw chairperson Osman Fatchi, vice-chairperson Owen Malijani and general secretary Thomas Makiwa elected unopposed.
In his acceptance speech, Fatchi advised the new committee to work towards the good of the team.
“You have been entrusted with these positions to serve Civo United. Put the interest of the club first so that we can achieve success on and off the pitch. With determination and integrity, we can achieve things at this club. But for this to happen, it starts with you,” said Fatchi.
In the race for the position of vice-general secretary, Ronald Chiwaula won with 166 votes against Tione Andsen’s four.
Charles Mwenda, who was acting general secretary, lost to Edgar Chipalanjiru for the post of vice-treasurer. He received 67 votes against 109.
Mayeso Chidaya, Kubweza Banda, Manfred Ndovie and Jones Kaponda Masiye were elected executive committee members.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) executive committee member Charles Manyungwa, who was presiding officer, described the elections as free and fair.
“I believe the elections have been open and free, but if there are some people who feel grieved they can lodge a complaint within seven days,” said Manyungwa, a former Civo executive member before joining Sulom.n
