    At first I thougt all our judges in Malawi were either corrupt or dull but this learned Senior Resident Magistrate Chikondi Mandala knows how to mete punishments.A football case should be treated as such.Fines in football can not bring sanity to our beutiful game but telling somebody to be at police station everytime there is a game. I envy you Chikondi Mandala you a wise Magistrate and you a better material for our rotten High courts who charge somebody to 3 yrs imprisonment after stealing more than 63,000,000 kwacha.
    But those who are trying to bring in Big Bullets should be ashamed because was not there when these two teams Wanderers and Silver jointly killed a man in Balaka and you want to divert that and bringing in a non concerned party be ashamed you are not worth what you are.

    If I were the magistrate I would ensure that these two are sent to jail. I would not send them to do community service or ask them to pay a fine. I would give them the maximum sentence for the offence, whether first offenders or not. I would do this simply to teach other would-bes a lesson. That is if proven guilty. Unfortunately, Nyakwawa Usiwausiwa is now somewhere else and am not sure if others can emulate the legacy he left of not smiling at criminals

    Anapita ku court winayo atavala shirt ya Blue cholinga tidziti ndiwanyerere? If violence and chaos at Football Games are to end make sure u Parade all the six Witneses at once and the Magestrate should conclude the case on the same day, Mbuli zimenezi ife tatopanazo, give them stifer punishment to deter would offenders, U can not go to watch beutiful Game of Footbal at the same time fearing what the 12th prayer may do in the end of each and every game, Ndilande is not Bullets and wanders are not the owners of Chichili stadium, take all the Games to Civo u will not regreat. Apite ku maxmam zomba azawo akudikila kumeneko!!!!.
