FAM General Secretary Alfred Gunda confirmed the development:
“In the absence of Nkolongo we had to look for another elite coach to take charge of the team.
“We have confidence that his vast experience and exposure will be of great value to the scorchers. He has been with the U20 and also on the panel of the Flames that qualified for Cameroon AFCON” Gunda.
Fazili said he is honoured to take charge of the Scorchers.
” It is a new challenge in my coaching career which I am excited to take. I will speak more once I meet the girls and the rest of the team,” he said.
Fazili who is currently undergoing a CAF B Course will be deputised by Andrew Chikhosi and Abasi Makawa.
He has served as assistant for the Malawi Under 20, Under 23 and Men’s Senior.
