Undoubtedly one of the loyalist players in Malawi, Alfred Manyozo Junior, together with other 15 players are set to leave the Mighty Wanderers Football Club on financial grounds.
Reports reaching this publication indicate that now Mighty Wanderers is likely to become a team of upcoming players as players such as Alfred Manyozo Jnr, Isaac Kaliati, Stanley Sanudi, Ted Sumani, Yunus Sherrif, Francis Mlimbika, Lucky Malata, Wisdom Mpinganjira, Bongani Kaipa, Simion Singa, Hamkey Machira, Aubrey Maloya, Juma Yatina, Peter Wadabwa, Mike Kaziputa and goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa.
Times reports that Wanderers need about K30 million to tie down the players to long term contracts and also pay debts in signing-on-fees.
Wanderers acting Chief Executive Officer Chancy Gondwe has written to the team’s board to act on the matter urgently, a report by Times says.
“As per our several discussions regarding the issue above, I would like to report that the issue of players’ contracts has now reached a scary stage. You will notice that our key players are no longer committed to the team.
“I therefore seek your indulgence to intervene and lobby the board to treat this as a matter of utmost urgency before we get a mass exodus. Already there are strong rumours that rival teams have started negotiations with our players,” reads part of the letter, dated 8th October 2021 as quoted by the local paper.
“As you can see above and in the attachment, we have a risk of losing the majority of our key players. Management feels helpless and needs your organised intervention. This issue has been outstanding since the board was put in place. We submitted a report about our agreements with all the players in question and we are still waiting for feedback,” the letter reads further.
Wanderers acting Public Affairs Manager Ernest Maganga asked for more time to confirm the actual amount that the team owes the players.
However, Maganga confirmed that the matter was being handled at a higher level.
Founded in 1962, Mighty Wanderers has been enjoying good sponsorship but in the past three years the club has been facing financial challenges, leading to poor performance due to lack of motivation among players.

A horrifying piece of news is coming forward where it reported that a man belonging to China set his ex-wife on fire during her Livestream. The news has shaken everyone as it is something that can not be imagined or thought about. As per reports, the Chinese man has been sentenced to death on Thursday, October 14, 2021. Now, the matter has become the subject of discussion and has been receiving national and international notoriety. People are in shock to learn about the terrific crime the man just committed. Here’ everything we know about the case.
Lhamo, a 30-year-old woman from China, was the victim of this terrifying crime. The woman was a livestreamer and a farmer and lived in a Tibetan autonomous prefecture which is located in Southwestern Sichuan province. On the day when the saddening incident took place, she was streaming a video featuring herself. Subsequently, a man entered the room where she was in and poured gasoline on her. Before she could understand anything, the man set her on fire. The said incident happened last September. Lhamo survived two weeks and died afterwards. The man named Tang Lu who also happens to be the victim’s ex-husband was arrested by the cops soon after.
According to state-run broadcaster CCTV, the culprit was produced before the court on Thursday where he was found guilty of killing. Later, he was sentenced to death and was also asked to pay compensation. The CCTV reported that the court found him guilty and stated that his crime “was very cruel”. The court further added that the crime deserves severe punishment. It is coming forward that Tang Lu and Lhamo divorced in June 2020 and that Tang had a record of domestic violence towards his wife as he abused her physically and beat her many times.
After the divorce, Tang didn’t leave her either and threatened to marry him. However, the woman denied accepting his offer. Later, Tang Lu ended up setting his ex-wife on fire. The case has been getting worldwide exposure and has been drawing attention to the frightful nature of Lhamo’s death. Besides, women’s safety in China and violence towards them has also become a topic of concern. So far, China has only enacted its first nationwide law in 2015 which prohibits domestic violence. After the culprit Tang was sentenced to death, many people came forward and supported the decision of the court in response to Lhamo’s case.
