Be Forward Wanderers main supporters committee has resolved to remove club general secretary (GS) Victor Maunde and treasurer Robert Mbedza in the wake of divisions in the executive committee.
The divisions came in the wake of recommendations made by the task force on the club’s future.
The resolution was made during a meeting held in Blantyre on Monday following the task force’s decision to quit.
But while confirming the development, Nomads’ main supporters committee chairperson Melvin Nkunika said they will come up with an official position after meeting zonal supporters committees today.
He said: “The decision was unanimous as it was felt that these two gentlemen were frustrating the initiative. But before we map the way forward, we have to inform the zonal committees first.
“The task force has good plans for the club, including courting potential sponsors and partners as well as setting up professional structures, including registration and we cannot allow such a noble initiative to be frustrated by few individuals. We are moving forward.”
On whether they have the mandate to fire members of the executive committee, Nkunika said: “Executive committee officials are put in place by us supporters and if we feel that there are some who are not performing to our expectations, we have the right to take action for the good of the club.”
But Maunde yesterday said he has not received any communication on the matter.
On his part, Mbedza said: “I have heard that there are plans to fire some executive members, but I have not been told anything.
“We also support the move to turn the club into a company, but procedures need to be followed.”
Nkunika also said the meeting agreed that club chairperson Simon Sikwese, vice-chairperson Christopher Kananji, vice-general secretary Adelaide Migogo, vice-treasurer Pemphero Nkumba and executive committee members Nyongani Gondwe and Leonard Mazombe should be maintained to work with the task force.
An inside source said names of possible replacements were thrown into the fray and they included Mabvuto Missi and Limbani Magomero for second vice-chairperson, Stevie Madeira for GS and Mphatso Chika for treasurer.
Missi, who is also a member of the task force, confirmed being approached by the supporters committee.
He said: “But I have turned it down because it will be conflict of interest, having served in the task force. The picture that wouldd be portrayed would be that we had planned for this. I am a ready to assist them in other areas, but not in the executive.”
After the aborted meeting with the executive and main supporters committees, task force chairperson Humphrey Mvula said they quit because of the serious divisions displayed by the two committees which led to Mbedza walking out of the meeting after questioning the task force’s mandate.
