Share the story

Kinnah Phiri’s book has received encouraging support with Minister of Youth and Sports Richard Chimwendo Banda and Prophet Shepherd Bushiri, among those who bought the first copies at its launch ceremony in Lilongwe yesterday.

The book, Four-legged wizard, depicts exploits made by the football legend throughout his career and aims at inspiring the current generation of footballers.

In his remarks, the minister disclosed that government is in the process of drawing up a contract that will see Kinnah back at the ministry, where he worked as director of football for a year until his contract expired in January 2020.

Among sports stakeholders, Chimwendo Banda bought the book at K500,000, Malawi National Council of Sports board chairperson Sunduzwayo Madise got his copy at K450,000 while both Football Association of Malawi and Nyasa Manufacturing Company got a copy each at K400,000.

Prophet Bushiri bought his copy at K5 million.

Speaking through his spokesperson Ephraim Nyondo, Bushiri said there is need for the country to honour its legends because they are the people who “made us happy and feel respected as Malawians”.

Part of the money being raised will go towards helping some of the legends the country has produced.
