Geoffrey Tam-tam a Blantyre business tycoon who is behind the Tam-Tam company, has taken a step further in sports world as he has shown interest to contest as Super league of Malawi executive member.
After serving faithfully in the business world the tycoon said he wants to improve Malawian football to reach the international platform.
In an interview with the Malawi-sports.com said he is delighted to serve the nation in a special way which is to change the mentality that many Malawians has on football.
“Some people approached me with the issue saying they want me in the sports world, it was a hard discussion to make but after making some investigations and findings on the views of my family which they agreed, I then gave in to contest as SULOM executive member,” the tycoon said.
Tam-Tam further said that he is not afraid of failure as such has never been his priority, saying that he is ready to face the heavy rains that he is to struggle with.
“I will be launching my manifesto very soon, hence it will be announced on the radio and on the internet as well. Am sure that Malawian will like my agendas since they are meant to change the current status of our sports in Malawi,” he said.
Tam-tam, said he is not happy that football players in Malawi face a lot of problems both domestic and economic while their superiors and some people are making million out of their hard labour.
“It is very sad to understand that all the millions that our teams are given as sponsorship or through the money won in trophies; players get the least of it. It is however my vision to make Malawian sports a business and a root to professional sports,” said Tam-Tam.
The Renown Business Director however edged all Malawians to support him by voting for him on the polling day.
“Am ready to deliver in a way that will interest Malawians, hence don’t press doubts in me as I don’t doubt your vote” he concluded.
