Migogo unveils manifesto ahead of women’s football AGM


One of the National Women’s Football Association presidential hopefuls, Adelaide Migogo has unveiled her manifesto ahead of the elective Annual General Meeting (AGM) slated for 15th April 2023 in Salima District.

Migogo said her main vision is to recreate Women’s football as a brand that will have a strong presence in football in Malawi and beyond.

Migogo said she wants women’s football to be as big a brand as or bigger than netball.

“My project seeks to create a new direction for women’s football in Malawi, building upon the aspirations of its founders like Emmie Mphande, Flora Mwandira, Charles Nyirenda, Chimwemwe Festino, Grace Mhango and David Dube, among others,” said Migogo.

The former Mighty Mukuru Wanderers FC general secretary also said her wish is to work and empower the existing club and regional structures while also creating a very professional secretariat to take women’s football to unprecedented levels.

Migogo: my administration will take women’s football to unprecedented levels

She added that Malawi’s COSAFA results over the last few years show that there is potential, but lacks systems, structures, initiatives and the vision to move this potential to full-blown success.

Migogo, therefore, vowed to commit herself to the development of women’s football in Malawi and work with all affiliates, clubs, players, coaches, fans, FAM and sponsors in advancing the women’s football agenda.

In her manifesto, Migogo also outlined seven key pillars which she said will form the bedrock of her tenure.

She said that the seven pillars include, rebranding women’s football, inclusiveness, club development, club licensing and competitions, technical development, growth (technical & financial), good governance and success.

Sports commentator,  Higger Mkandawire said Migogo seems to understand the game of football and that she is longing to fill the gap which exists in women’s football.

“Being someone who is active in men’s football like Mukuru Wanderers, it shows that she has good knowledge of how she can develop women’s football,” he said.

Mkandawire added that Migogo’s seven pillars show that she can make it because she joined Wanderers when the team was struggling without sponsorship.

Migogo will battle it out with the incumbent president, Suzgo Ngwira Sakala.
