Be Forward Wanderers say they are waiting for the technical panel’s direction on whether to offer their legendary midfielder Joseph Kamwendo a deal.
The 32-year-old midfielder is a free agent following mutual termination of his contract with South African National First Division (NFD) outfit Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) FC earlier this month. The second-tier league side cleared the player last week.
Upon his return from the Rainbow Nation, Kamwendo declared that he would return to Lali Lubani Road, the side that provided him the platform to scale lofty heights.
Wanderers general secretary Mike Butao yesterday said: “His clearance came and he is training with the team.
“But we are now waiting for direction from the technical panel before we can act because we do not impose players on the technical panel.”
However, Football Association of Malawi (FAM) licensing and compliance manager Casper Jangale said once Nomads express interest to sign Kamwendo, they will contact their South African counterparts [South African Football Association] to confirm the player’s status.
“Safa will in turn cross-check with the South African club [TTM] and then we will take it up from there,” he said.
Part of the clearance from TTM signed by their administrator Langton Kondo reads: “This is to certify that Joseph Kamwendo with passport number MA 608814 has been cleared by Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila FC to play for any club of his choice.”
The former Caps United (Zimbabwe), Nordsjaelland (Denmark), Orlando Pirates (South Africa), Club de Maculmana (Mozambique) and TP Mazembe (DRC) player signed a one-year deal with TTM after successful trials in January this year.
