He holds a Bachelor of Arts (Education) degree and a Master of Science degree in Sports Management, and various certificates including a Certificate in Sports Business Management.

“As FAM we are very grateful to Mr. Nyirenda for his professionalism and dedicated service to the association. Mr. Nyirenda has served FAM for 10 years, 5 years as the General Secretary.

“During his tenure, FAM has made excellent progress in various FIFA and CAF projects and programmes earning FIFA’s recognition as one of the best ran football associations in the world.

“As FAM we are proud that COSAFA acknowledged Mr. Nyirenda’s professionalism and dedication to duty hence his appointment. This is good news not only to FAM but also to Malawi as a country because it bears testimony of the confidence that COSAFA has in one of our sons, the association and the country. We wish Mr. Nyirenda a very successful tour of service at COSAFA,” FAM President Walter Nyamilandu said in a statement issued Friday.
