Malawi National Sports Council (MNSC) has lifted the indefinite suspension which Malawi Boxing Association of Malawi (Maba) imposed on its affiliate, the National Professional Boxing Committee (NPBC) on May 15 2012.
The suspension was lifted after a round table meeting the council held on Sunday with the two parties.
Maba vice-president secretary Henry Sakala and NPBC general secretary Daud Chikwenje confirmed the lifting of the suspension on Monday.
The council has also turn down the application by NPBC to form Malawi Professional Boxing Control Board (MPBCB), describing it as unconstitutional.
â€œWe had a fruitful discussion whereby burning issues were highlighted. The suspension has been lifted and we have been advised to work together. NPBC has been advised to draft a constitution if they want to be detached from Maba, which should convince the association on their intended purposes,â€ said Sakala.
Â He said the council also advised NPBC that they are still under Maba and that the latter will be responsible for all professional boxing activities in the country.
According to Sakala, the council has asked NPBC to submit their draft constitution to Maba by the end of this month.
NPBC applied to be detached and seat as independent commercial entity called Malawi Professional Boxing Control Board (MBCB) in January.
In a response to a questionnaire about the outcome of the Sunday meeting, council executive secretary George Jana said: â€œWe can at this moment only confirm that the meeting took place and resolutions [were made] on way forward. However, the resolutions and discussions remain in-house until at an appropriate time at which point you will all be accordingly appraised.â€
