Maneno Nyoni

Know your sports star; MANENO NYONI


When Maneno Nyoni left Karonga United for Nyasa Big Bullets a couple of years ago, not many a soccer follower had given him chances of surviving. However, he defied all odds and survived his maiden season with the country’s most successful soccer club.

A couple of injuries along the way forced Nyoni to seek greener pastures at the-then TNM Super league newcomers, Master’s Security Fc.

Now, for those who have been following local soccer, Maneno Nyoni is no ordinary defender; he is Master’s Security Fc’s last line of defense.

Let’s us follow the career path of this promising pillar of Jericho.
