Mighty Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda has claimed that their executive committee elections will still take place this Saturday, but chairperson George Chamangwana disputed this.
There is uncertainty about the elections taking place because of Wanderers’ meeting with Big Bullets in IntoSports Giants Peace Cupfinal in Lilongwe on Sunday, but Kanyenda said that is no reason to postpone the polls.
“I am a democrat. I am a staunch advocate of democratic systems and methods at Nomads. Some people want only their cronies to assume leadership irrespective of their capacities. Bullets conducted successful elections,” Kanyenda argued.
“Silver did it like wise last season. Why are we refusing to invite people to join our clubs administration? We need to seek a fresh mandate. We aren’t occupying our positions for life. No. Without elections, if the team loses a few games next season, we will be unceremoniously booted out.”
But yesterday, Chamangwana differed with Kanyenda, arguing that the elections are not on this weekend.
“The supporters committee wrote to the trustees and we haven’t got any reply. The trustees are the ones who can call for the elections and
not the supporters,” Chamangwana argued.
The Nomads’ chief supporter Yona Malunga also said they would wait for the trustees’ guidance. But vice-chairperson of the board of trustees James Chuma on Tuesday said he was unaware of the elections.
