Be Forward Wanderers have sought Football Association of Malawi’s (FAM) intervention on the controversy surrounding their want-away midfielder Joseph Kamwendo.
The Nomads general secretary Mike Butao yesterday confirmed the development, saying they sought FAM’s intervention because Kanwendo is insisting to move [to Masters Security] despite the club’s decision to reject his request for termination of his contract by mutual consent.
“He signed a two-and-a-half-year and he has only done about four months. So, we are asking for FAM’s direction,” he said.
Meanwhile, FAM has also charged Masters for player-tapping following a complaint lodged by the Nomads.
FAM transfer matching system and club licensing manager Casper Jangale confirmed the development.
“We gave them [Masters] 48 hours from Friday to respond to the charges. Basically, the charge is that as per the photograph that circulated on social media and was published in the Daily Times, it appears that they were already in touch with the player even before Wanderers made a decision and that is tantamount to player-tapping,’ said Jangale.
He also said they have summoned Kamwendo to hear his side of the story today. Kamwendo confirmed having been summoned but refused to comment further.
