Former Football Association of Malawi (FAM) general secretary Charles Nyirenda has declared his interest to vie for the position of second vice-president.
Nyirenda, who served as the association’s GS between 2008 and 2011, said while more aspirants are vying for the presidency, he is looking forward to contributing towards the technical aspects of the game.
“It seems the emphasis is on [senior] national team results, but there is more that needs to be done to improve the game, including professionalising the game at top level.
“There are other areas such as improving refereeing and coaching at district level. We need to improve the structures right from the bottom and having been in the system before, I have the technical know-how of how to go about it,” said Nyirenda.
He added: “My agenda is to have a proper setup and to achieve that, we need collective efforts.”
Nyirenda is likely to contest with the incumbent second veep Pikawo Ngalamila and Othaniel Hara should they be nominated to contest at the polls scheduled for December 18.
