The Industrial Relations Court in Blantyre on Monday adjourned case involving the Football Association of Malawi and the Former Flames mentor to June 15 this year.
David Kanyenda, Mwase’s lawyer, Makiyi Kanyenda and Associates confirm the development saying the Association’s representatives, Chisanga and Tomoka sought for the adjustment of the case number 432 of 2022.
Kanyenda said “We appeared before Industrial Relations Court Assistant Registra Peter Kandulu and our counterpart asked for the adjournment, which was accepted.
“We are ready to prosecute the matter to its logical conclusion at the earliest opportunity. ”
The Court document says the defence sought for the adjournment because Fam’s representatives were busy with The Flames logistical issues in the Capital City after last weekend’s clash against Ethiopia.
Part of the document which The Malawi Guardian is in possession, reads, “We would like to advise that we will seek adjournment due to the fact that our client’s representatives will still be in Lilongwe after the Flames game on June 4, attending to other logistics related to the team.”
Meke Mwase dragged the Association to the Court for unlawful termination of contract, redeployment and constructive dismissal.
The former TN Stars tactician was dismissed as Flames Head Coach after Fam, at its quarterly meeting held in Mangochi in March, agreed to redeploy him and replace him with the then Technical Director, Mario Marian Marinica.
After firing Mwase due to pressure, the Association tried to meet Mwase. Fam redeployed Mwase as Under-23 national team gaffer but Mwase turned down the offer.
Mwase was appointed as Flames Head Coach in 2019 taking over the vacuum left by the Belgian Ronny Van Geneudgen who was sacked at the end of his contract.
Mwase helped Malawi National Team qualifying for the delayed African Cup of Nations took place in January, Cameroon before replaced by Mario Marinica.
He was the in-charge when Malawi beat Zimbabwe in their second game in Cameroon at Afcon as Triple M was tested positive to Corona Virus.
