Mighty Wanderers FC new interim chairperson Chancy Gondwe says they want the task force, which was set up to oversee the club’s commercialisation drive, to get back on board.
The task force, led by the club’s former chairperson Humphrey Mvula, stepped down last month, citing divisions within the club’s leadership over its mandate.
In an interview on Thursday, Gondwe said: “We will continue working together with the Humphrey Mvula-led task force to make sure that the plan to register the club as a limited company, is realised.
“We shall proceed with our commercialisation project. I want Wanderers Football Club to be listed on the Malawi Stock Exchange [MSE] in four or five years time whereby Malawians will have an opportunity to buy shares in the club.”
But Mvula said they will make a decision once they are approached by the executive committee.
He said: “The intention to continue working with the task force has not been communicated. I guess we can talk about the terms when the communication has been made.
“When I say we will talk about the terms I am referring to the controversy that was there surrounding the proposed MoU [memorandum of understanding], to say what has changed now?
“I am, however, confident that members would be forthcoming to continue if the engagement will be genuine and coming from both supporters and executive committees.”
The club’s main supporters committee chairperson Mervin Nkunika said they would fully support the task force’s return to continue with its mission.
“What is needed is unity. We should all speak with one voice and pull in the same direction so that in the end, we achieve our goal of commercialising the club,” he said.
