Read FAM statement:
“On behalf of the Executive Committee of FAM and the entire football fraternity in Malawi, I would like to express my sincerest and heartfelt condolences on the passing of Mr. Mweemba.
Words seem inadequate to express the sadness we feel for this loss.

“It breaks our hearts that Mr Mweemba has passed away while our Men’s Senior National team is in Lusaka for a friendly match against Zambia on Wednesday.
“We hope that our words of support may help bring some peace and solace at this difficult time,” said FAM President Walter Nyamilandu-Manda.
Mr Mweemba died at 4am on Tuesday at Coptic Hospital in Lusaka after a short illness.
