Be Forward Wanderers acting chairperson Gift Mkandawire is set to go unopposed as the Nomads go to the polls this afternoon.
Mkandawire, ascended to the position in acting capacity following the death of chairperson George Chamangwana last year.
According to a list of nominations released yesterday by board of trustees, Mkandawire has no opponent just like first vice-chairperson Allan Chuma.
Commenting on the development, Mkandawire, who steered the Nomads to their first TNM Super League championship in 10 years, said the nomination was a vote of confidence.
The Nomads also returned to Confederation of African Football (CAF ) club competitions after 17 years.
However, they were knocked out by AS Vita of Democratic Republic of Congo in the preliminary round.
“The supporters have seen what the executive has managed to achieve despite the challenges that we have faced,” said Mkandawire.
Apart from the two positions, the others will be contested for.
Andrew Mwadala and Hubert Mfune will battle out for second vice-chairperson position.
Incumbent general secretary Mike Butao will face Mlenga Mvula.
Davis Msadala and Robert Mbedza are vying for the post of treasurer while Davie Pemba and Innocent Chikoko will contest for the club’s vice-treasurer.
Victor Maunde, John Gawani, Marriot Phambana, Hopeson Wawanya, Tango Ngalawa, Hendrix Chabwera, Samuel Chikampana, Wendy Kavalo, Lumbani Mtonyo, Kamu Bwanali, Dan Pemphero Nkumba are vying for five ordinary members’ positions.
Former general secretary David Kanyenda is conspicuously missing on the nominations despite showing strong interest to contest for one of the top positions.
Only registered Wanderers supporters are eligible to vote . n
