Supporters of Nyasa Big Bullets are reportedly visiting the house of their former player Jaffalie Chande every night to threaten his life following his departure to join rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, the blues have complained to Football Association of Malawi.
Wanderers’ secretary general Mike Butao in a letter addressed to FAM secretary general Suzgho Nyirenda, he claims Bullets supporters are visiting Chande’s house “every morning and evening issuing threats.”
He also said Police have summoned the player three times without formally charging him.
“Since when did changing teams become a crime?” said Butao.
Butao wondered “on whose instructions are Police summoning the player? Should Bullets be allowed to be bigger than the laws governing our game?”
But Bullets supporters chairperson Stone Mwamadi has denied allegations that the Peoples Team fans are threatening Chande.
“To us Chande is no longer an issue. We wish him well in his new life at Wanderers but we want procedures of his transfer to be followed,” said Mwamadi
Two contracts emerged at the Chande’s preliminary hearing according to FAM) transfer matching systems manager Casper Jangale.
Chande produced a copy of a one and a half year contract which shows that he became a free agent on February 13 and allegedly came into effect on August 14 2014.
On the other hand, the People’s Team produced a contract which shows that Chande has a running three-year contract until August 2017.
Chande insisted that his contract was genuine.
“This was a document that I signed with Bullets when I joined them from Epac in 2014 and [Harold] Fote, who was the GS then, signed it on behalf of the club, as for the other one, I am not aware,” said Chande.
Wanderers wanted to buy out Chande’s contract at K700 000 (about $1 100) but Bullets have refused.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
