Silver Strikers General Secretary Innocent Kadam’manja on Saturday narrowly won the post of Super League of Malawi Legal Advisor, during the Association’s partial elective Annual General Meeting held at Capital Hotel in Lilongwe.
The post of Sulom Legal Advisor fell vacant following the election of Muhammad Seleman into FAM Executive committee member in December last year.
Since then, the country’s Super League governing body has for the past ten months been operating without a functioning legal advisor’s office.
Heading to polls, Kadammanja faced stiff competition from his predecessor at the area 47 soccer outfit Thabo Chakaka Nyirenda and William Nkhoma.
And during the hotly contested vote, the ‘Bankers’ GS scooped 20 votes against Chakaka and Nkhoma’s 19 and 5 votes respectively, to secure a thin win.
Soon after the election, the incoming Sulom Legal Advisor revealed that his first task will border on the need to deliver equal justice to when disputes arise.
“In the run up to this election, clubs complained about delayed judgements, meagre Super League sponsorship, Sulom’s ligidity to some clubs proposed games rescheduling as well as alleged favouritism on player transfer wrangles towards alleged big teams.
Therefore, we will give these concerns ths necessary attention so that Sulom is seen to be impartial and fair to each and every club as well as players, falling under the elite League”, Kadam’manja said.
The SULOM AGM, held under strict Covid-19 preventive guidelines, attracted the presence of among others Football Association of Malawi President Walter Nyamilandu
