Super League clubs last Saturday took turns to accuse Super League of Malawi (Sulom) executive committee of frustrating the constitutional review process.
The clubs voiced out their concerns during the flagship league governing body’s general assembly at Sunbird Nkopola Lodge in Mangochi.
Former Blue Eagles vice-general secretary Solomon Gomezgani Mchawi, who is now the league’s legal adviser, said the committee that was put in place to oversee the process did not get support from the previous Sulom executive committee.
He said: “We could not make any significant progress because there was no will on the part of the executive committee.
“I was a member of that committee and we received proposals from some teams, but we did not get the required support from the governing body.”
Contributing on the same topic, Silver Strikers and FCB Nyasa Bullets also said the issue was long overdue.
Bullets vice-president Fleetwood Haiya, who was later on elected Sulom president, said their efforts as a committee to push for the constitutional review did not get the previous committee’s support.
Nevertheless, while acknowledging the challenges that were there, Sulom immediate-past president Tiya Somba-Banda admitted the issue.
He said: “This issue has been pending for some time. The issue of constitutional review has outlived itself.
“The constitution was last amended in 2017 and changes are taking place every time because football is a dynamic game, changes are taking place every time.
“So, I urge you to seriously consider that.”
Among the proposals made by the clubs were composition of the executive committee whereby some teams want all the 16 teams to be represented, setting up a fully-fledged secretariat complete with a chief executive officer and an accountant.
Some teams also want a change in the current gate revenue share system so that the home team should get 50 percent instead of sharing 25 percent each with the visiting team.
