Self-styled coach Millas Pofera-Jegwe has resigned as Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC assistant coach after failing to convince his employers to transfer him from Lilongwe to Mzuzu.
Pofera-Jegwe is a civil servant with Ministry of Health while coaching is his other part-time job.
In his resignation letter, the former Civo United coach, who holds a Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) A coaching licence, states that after failing to convince his employers to transfer him to Mzuzu, he has no choice but to return to his base in Lilongwe.
“My authorities have rejected my request for the said transfer, hence I am reverting to my official duties in Lilongwe,” Pofera-Jegwe wrote in his resignation letter.
The coach signed a contract with Mzuni in March and his resignation comes just a month into the 2017 Super League season.
Mzuni general secretary Khumbo Kumwenda said they also have no choice, but to let go the assistant coach.
“We have little choice but to accept [his resignation]. The team will move on,” he said.
Mzuni are third on the TNM Super League log table with nine points from two wins and three draws.
Red Lions lead the table with 11 points followed by PremierBet Wizards who also have 11 points but with an inferior aggregate. n
