Bullets bids farewell to Nomads bound ‘WMD’

Bullets F.C through their flamboyant chairperson Kondie Msungama have sent a best wishes message to their former striker Jimmy Zakazaka who recently announced that he has crossed the floor to join Bullets long time traditional rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers.

While disputing reports that the club was no longer interested to keep the player further after the expiry of his contract, Msungama said on Saturday that the club respects the player’s decision.

“First of all, it will be wise enough to wish him well after crossing the floor [to Mighty Be Forward Wanderers]. He is the manager of his life, he is almost 30 years now and old enough to make decisions” said Msungama.

“We always wish well to players who join other clubs seeking greener pasture since football is a short term career and you need to make use of every minute when you are still strong” he added.

In his farewell remarks to Bullets, Zakazaka told the press that Bullets did not show interest to have him after the expiry of his one year contract a statement Msungama has strongly refuted.

The player demanded that other terms and conditions in his previous contract with the club be improved in the new contract.

Msungama however wondered on how a club with no interest in a particular player can register the same player for the new season including the continental Confederation of African Football (CAF) competition which the people’s team is currently participating.

“Registering him for CAF is a clear indication that we still had interest and valued the player so much therefore I am wondering to hear that Bullets was no longer interested in his services” said Msungama.

“After all he was approached by our Technical Director [Billy Tewesa] informing him that training had resumed but his reply was that he had set up a new business hence the need to monitor the business first” said the Bullets Chairman.

Meanwhile, Zakazaka is training with Wanderers and confirmed few days ago that the talks with the club are at an advanced stage and that are going on smoothly.

Zakazaka who was nicknamed “Weapon of Mass Destruction” by the late veteran Zambian soccer commentator was among the influential players that helped Bullets reach the quarterfinal of the CAF competition in 2004.

He scored a couple of vital goal including the one against Zanaco of Zambia that earned him the nickname from the Zambia’s football God father.

All the best Jimmy. Thanks for the good job done while playing for BB. Please BB fans refrain from saying bad about a player because of leaving BB.Just pray that we get replacement and who knows a replacement will be better than the one gone that’s the way the footballers behave in the world. Today is in Man U tomorrow he goes to Chelsea etc. Wishing all BB soccer lovers a fantastic 2015.Lets support our team.

Kafikeni bambo. Simukanaithandizanso Bullets.


Registering a player for CAF competition does not mean you have improved his terms of condition. This Msungama is a clown.


It’s good for every one to seek greenpasture indeed, so best wishes to you Mr Zakazaka and thanks for all effort contributed to Peoples Team Success.
