From rapping homosexuals and those who promote gay rights in Takana Mathanyula, poet Robert Chiwamba has turned on Malawi National team, the Flames.
He has released a poem called Flames Sidzamva, which takes a swipe at both football administrators and players for the national team’s poor form.
Chiwamba wonders why the Flames should be crying for resources every time yet their performance keeps tumbling at every encounter.
He described the Flames Sidzamva as a passionate and patriotic pleas to the Flames for the football team’s underachievements and a call for reforms on the same for better results and performances.
“Mine is a serious concern that the Flames have been letting us down for many years; hence, a call for a complete reform. We need to change our mindset on the way we govern or support soccer in Malawi. We need patriotism and seriousness on the part of players and administrators because it is embarrassing to note that the Flames keep on disappointing us,” he said.
Of late, Chiwamba has become an advocate of change in the country.
In one of his poems he also tackles the sensitive issue of oil exploration on Malawi, warning that it is the country’s biggest treasure which cannot be compensated by oil.
He challenged some investors to educate Malawians if they want to help alleviating poverty in Malawi.
