Chairperson for the Super League outfit, Mzuni FC, Dr Felix Bello will continue to lead the club for the rest of the season despite calls from some supporters for him to step down.
The media has of late been awash with stories that supporters and players for Mzuni FC are not satisfied with Bello’s performance as chair, saying he does not avail himself at the club to make important decisions in addition to not patronizing the team’s home games.
The supporters were therefore asking for an immediate removal of Bello to be replaced by someone else.
But after the club’s meeting last Tuesday, Chairperson for the Supporters Committee, Kenneth Dailo, told Nyasa Times that the issue was an in house problem and that it had been resolved and there was nothing more he could say on the matter.
When Nyasa Times turned to the club’s General Secretary, Dr Khumbo Kumwenda, he said the club did not actually meet to discuss Dr Bello’s performance but to plan for the next round of the season.
“The issue you are referring to came up in the meeting but there was no progress because it came just as a report that some supporters wanted the Chair to step down. They actually wrote him and copied to me. No time was wasted on the matter as our main focus was to plan for the next round,” explained Dr Kumwenda.
Kumwenda added that the club was not shaky as portrayed by other quarters and players were ready work extra hard in amassing points both away and at home beginning with their fixture against Blue Eagles this Saturday at Mzuzu Stadium.
Quizzed on transfer activities at the club, Kumwenda said no player was going out of the club but some four students have been identified as potential players who can assist the club.
