Mighty Wanderers FC main supporters committee has put in place a new executive committee to be headed by former vice-chairperson Gift Mkandawire.
The supporters have also appointed a 10-man board of trustees.
The move comes a day after the previous executive committee chairperson Hannock Ngâ€™oma accused the supporters of flouting the clubâ€™s constitution by trying to remove the previous committee when its tenure was still on.
Save for Ngâ€™oma, the bulk of the previous committee has been retained.
However, the Nomads supporters committee chairperson Yona Green-Malunga justified the move on Sunday arguing that even the committee that Ngâ€™oma led was elected unconstitutionally as the previous oneâ€”led by James Chumaâ€”was also removed before the end of its tenure.
â€œWith due respect to Mr. Ngâ€™oma, I do not think he has any valid argument because if he had respect for the constitution, then he would not have accepted his election as chairperson in 2009 because the previous committeeâ€™s tenure had not expired,â€ said Malunga who was flanked by his secretary Felix Njaya.
Malunga claimed the appointment of the new executive was done after thorough consultations with the supporters sub-committees.
In the new executive committee, George Chamangwana is the first vice-chairperson whereas Francis Shawa has retained his position as second vice-chairperson.
Lawyer David Kanyenda is the new GS whereas his deputies are Frank Kunje (fund-raising) and Hubert Mfune (administration). David Msadala is the new treasurer and he will be deputised by Chiyembekezo Zidana and Victor Mbewe (not the former RBM governor).
The teamâ€™s leader for the Centre is Lilongwe-businessperson Firoz whereas former FAM executive member Julius Mithi will be the team leader in the North.
Both Mkandawire and Kanyenda accepted their appointments on Sunday.
The following were appointed trustees: Rashid Gaffar, Dennis Kambalame, Arthur Chikankheni, Kalekeni Kaphale, James Chuma, Jack Chamangwana, Isaac Nyakamera, Jack Kamwendo, Maxwell Mapemba and Joe Malunga.
