Mighty Wanderers FC’s electoral college yesterday confirmed that George Chamangwana is set to retain the top seat unopposed during the club’s elections this morning at their Chichiri clubhouse in Blantyre.
The electoral body’s general secretary, Henry Chibowa, said after the deadline for receiving nominations on Thursday, Chamangwana had no challenger, so too aspirants for first and second-vice chairpersons Alex Machira and Allan Chuma. Others set to go unopposed are Christopher Mada Kuyera (treasurer) and Chris Kananji (vice-GS).
However, the centre of focus at the polls will be the race for general secretary where incumbent vice-general secretary Hubert Mfune will face former vice-general secretary Mike Butao.
The position of vice-treasurer has also attracted two aspirants—incumbent team manager Chiyembekezo Zidana and current second vice-general secretary Richard Kambalame.
Patrick Tsonga, Onani Chaponda, Chulu Nkangama, Duncan Jumbe, Eric Nkhoma, Hopeson Wawanya and Wisdom Malunga will contest for executive membership positions.
Chibowa said they expect the polls to be free and fair just like those of the main supporters committee last week.
The aspirants have paid a total of K1.05 million in nomination fees with the positions of chairperson and vice-chairpersons attracting K100 000 each.
Nomads’ newly elected supporters committee chairperson Dinesi Chitsulo appealed to the team’s supporters to vote for candidates that are credible and committed to taking the team to higher levels.
