FAM will hold a consultative meeting with all heads of its affiliates on Friday ahead of the annual general meeting (AGM) scheduled for Saturday at Malawi Sun Hotel in the commercial city, Blantyre.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda said during Friday’s meeting, the heads of affiliates are expected to report about their activities, achievements and challenges.
“We will also hear from them on whether there are areas that require our assistance,” said Nyirenda.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) president Innocent Bottomani has since hailed FAM for the move.
“This is a good development because as affiliates we will be able to raise critical issues that require the association’s urgent attention. It will also ensure a good working relationship with the football mother body,” said Bottomani.
On the AGM, Nyirenda said, among other things, there will be presentation of activity report for the period between July 1 2011 and June 30 2012.
“The meeting will also discuss the progress of the draft statutes which were a burning issue at last year’s meeting,” said Nyirenda.
He said financial and auditors’ report will also be presented as the meeting will also consider proposals and answer questions from the affiliates.
FAM president Walter Nyamilandu said they also expect the affiliates to raise issues about the performance of the Flames because they are concerned parties.
“We, therefore, expect them to present their proposals to take into consideration when we meet government and Sports Council later this month to map the way forward for the Flames,” said Nyamilandu.
