Be Forward Wanderers Executive Committee member, Robert Mbedza, has declared interest in contesting for the position of Treasurer in the team’s elections slated for March 25.
Last week, former general secretary, David Kanyenda, judiciary spokesperson, Mlenga Mvula, well known fan, Yona Malunga, and Blantyre-based businessperson, Davie Pemba, announced plans to vie for different positions in the team.
Mbedza, who will challenge incumbent Treasurer, Davie Msadala, yesterday said that having served as the team’s Executive Committee member for two seasons, he feels ready to work as treasurer.
“I am an accountant by profession and I believe I have the capability to manage the team’s funds. We have worked together [with Msadala] and he did a great job. Mine is just an acceptance to the calls from supporters and other stakeholders that I should also try to serve them in managing the team’s finances,” Mbedza said.
Meanwhile, Kanyenda is still undecided on the post he should contest for, while Mvula and Malunga are eyeing General Secretary and Chairperson posts, respectively.
Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, has said the elections are open to all interested individuals.
“Our committee does not need to do campaign because we have done a lot for the team and supporters have confidence in us. But these are elections and everyone is free to contest,” Butao said.
