Blue Eagles Football Club has dissolved its executive committee with immediate effect following the team’s poor performance in the just ended 2023 football season which has seen it being relegated to the second tier.
Deputy Inspector General of the Malawi Police Service (MPS) responsible for administration Happy Mkandawire confirmed the development with local media.
He said: “I can confirm that management of the Malawi Police Services(MPS) has dissolved the Blue Eagles FC executive committee with immediate effect. The reasons, among others, are due to the poor performance as all of us know that the team has gone to the lower division. Among the corrective measures we are taking is to ensure that we have a new executive committee.”
Mkandawire said the new committee will be announced by the newly formed National Sports Board for Malawi Police Service.
“Before we dissolved the outgoing executive committee a few days ago, the management also appointed the National Sports Board for Malawi Police Service. So, we have tasked the new board to come up with the new executive committee as soon as possible after they have done with handovers with the outgoing committee.
“There is still time to come up with the new executive committee if the board adheres to the timeframe it has been given to come up with a new committee, then we are assured to have enough time to start to preparing for the new season,” he said.
On the outstanding arrears, Mkandawire said they are aware and they will do everything possible to settle the arrears.
“We have mandated the new board to ensure the outgoing committee hands over reports which include financial reports. The financial reports will indicate to us as to how many people and how much they are owed. Let all be assured that they will get their money,” said Mkandawire.
The executive committee, which was led by Alex Simenti, has met the fate after serving the team for a year
