Blantyre: Following the dissolution of the national Football Team Technical Panel on 12th January 2013 by the Football Association of Malawi-FAM the Ministry of Sports held a disciplinary hearing with members of the technical panel to hear their side of the story on the matter.  The ministry then released a press statement on the new positions of the technical panel members.

“Taking into account that the technical panel are employees of Malawi Government seconded by FAM, an opportunity to be heard was given to Kinnah Phiri, Young Chimodzi and Jack Chamangwana who were serving as national Football Coach, Assistant Coach and Technical Director respectively,” reads the statement.

The disciplinary hearings were held with Jack Chamangwana and Young Chimodzi on 28th January 2013 and to Kinnah Phiri on 1st February.

“During the hearing on both sides, the panel noted that among others the performance of the National Football team to swindle such that within the contract period of the three employees of government, from 1st July and 1st August 2012 respectively, the team had played nine games out of which it had only won three and lost the rest.” Reads the press release signed by Principal Secretary in the ministry Justin A.K Saidi.

“Having considered all facts in the matter and having considered that the three members of the technical panel are employees of Government and that the Football Association of Malawi FAM did not anymore wish for their service to the national team, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has there forth resolved the matter,” it reads.

“Government in its continued efforts of sports to the nation, shall continue supporting the development and promotion of football in the country and has therefore with immediate effect relocated Kinnah Phiri, Young Chimodzi and jack Chamangwana to Regional Sports development Offices of the Malawi national Council of Sports as follows,” it goes.

Kinnah Phiri is now Regional Sports Development Officer in the Northern Region of Malawi, Young Chimodzi in the Central as well as jack Chamangwana as Regional Sports Development Officer in the South.

But commenting on the development Kinnah Phiri said he was employed as flames Coach and not Regional Sports Officer so all he said was “I am still not employed,”

“What people should know is that Kinnah Phiri was fired and they should still keep it until those who fired me come in the open to justify the reasons,” he said.

But Jack Chamangwana said he is very happy with the position.

“I am really very happy.  I believe this time I will perform my duties well because I am now in a new office under government,” he said
