New minister for development of all sports codes

Newly appointed Sports Minister Uchizi Mkandawire is promising to work for the development of all sports disciplines.

His promises come against a background most ministers and stakeholders give priority to football and netball only at the expense of other sports disciplines.

Mkandawire has replaced Richard Chimwendo Banda who is now heading the local government, unity and culture ministry.

“I can assure Malawians of my total dedication and commitment to work towards making sure that various sports disciplines are successful,” promised the new sports minister.

The new sports minister has since commended President Chakwera for trusting him in such position.

He said; “I am very grateful to President Chakwera who has seen it necessary that I should occupy this ministerial position”.

This is the first ministerial position for the Karonga South Malawi Congress Party legislator.

He becomes the third sports minister under Chakwera’s administration after Ulemu Msungama and his immediate predecessor, Chimwendo Banda.
