Ngulube was elected during the committeeâ€™s annual general meeting (AGM) held at Mponda Primary Schoolsâ€™ Teachers Development Centre (TDC) in Zomba.
He amassed 24 votes against 10 for Dishon Phiri and five for Andrew Kalombola. In his acceptance speech, Ngulube said he felt humbled with the trust shown in him and vowed to improve the quality of refereeing in the district.
â€œMy main task will be to fight for the upgrading of some referees in the district by arranging courses in liaison with the Southern Region Referees Committee,â€ he said.
The 24-year-old cited teamwork as of utmost importance for quality delivery of service by his committee, despite facing challenges especially in sports equipment.
