The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) would like to inform the football stakeholders that the allegations of corruption and match fixing in Malawi football by whistle-blower Arthur Chilimba will be referred to the Anti- Corruption Bureau (ACB) for investigations
This follows a meeting, which Arthur Chilimba requested to have with FAM on Wednesday 28th July 2021, to present his claims about corruption and match fixing in Malawi football.
FAM is concerned with the allegations of corruption and match fixing practices and it condemns such malpractices in the strongest sense because they are a threat to the integrity of the beautiful game.
Following the tip that has been made available, FAM is determined to get to the bottom of the matter by using appropriate channels.
Corruption is criminal in nature, and therefore FAM will refer the matter to ACB, which is the competent body with powers to investigate matters of this nature.
In this regard, FAM will take advantage of the long-standing collaboration it has with ACB on corruption and match fixing which dates back to 2012, to probe the matter.
FAM further commits to ACB to provide all the necessary support to make the exercise successful.
In an attempt to address the current problems with match officiation, FAM will through its Referees Standing Committee embark on an exercise to review its internal processes and systems in order to improve the status quo.
