Football Association of Malawi (FAM) first vice president James Mwenda has officially announced he will vie for the position of president as the FA will go to the polls this December.
Mwenda made the announcement at crossroads hotel saying his motivation to go for the FA’s top position is driven by demonstrated passion to improve football in the country.
“My decision to contest as FAM president has not been easy as there was a lot of consultations with stakeholder, family and friends”, he said.
Mwenda further said that he will soon share his manifesto and has encouraged people to contest for different positions at the elections in December.
“We are finalising the consultations with different people but soon I will share my manifesto and I encourage everyone to contest for different positions as am ready to work with everyone to develop football”, he said.
James Mwenda is the second person to show interest to vie for the position of FAM president after Karonga United football club chairperson Alufeyo Chipanga Banda announced he will also contest for the position and the incumbent president Walter Nyamilandu Manda who has been president since 2004 is yet to announce whether he will defend his position or not.
