Incumbent FAM president Walter Nyamilandu and immediate past vice-president Moses Mkandawire, who are among the body’s presidential aspirants, say they are in no hurry to launch their manifestoes.
The two are the only presidential aspirants yet to launch their blueprints with the nominations set to start today.
Rank outsider Balawala Vingula was the first to launch his manifesto a month ago, followed by Karonga United chairperson Alufeyo Chipanga Banda while incumbent vice-president James Mwenda launched his in Lilongwe on Tuesday evening.
Asked when he plans to launch his manifesto, Nyamilandu, who is seeking a fifth term bid, said: “I am buying time…. Slow but sure.”
On his part, Mkandawire said: “For me, there is still time, I will come out soon.
“I do not care whether I will get one vote so long as I will tell Malawians the truth because I stand for the truth.”
However, football analyst George Kaudza-Masina said Nyamilandu and Mkandawire face a race against time “as their blueprints are supposed to be the basis of their nominations by affiliates”.
He said: “Maybe they have a good reason for taking their time, but the sooner they come out, the better.”
The FAM polls are slated for December 14 in Mangochi.
