Drug Fight Malawi wants Nyasa Tobacco company out of Bullets FC

Drug Fight Malawi has expressed its deep concern and fear of an increase in tobacco use by children and youth in the country following the recent sponsorship agreement between Big Bullets Football Club and Nyasa Tobacco Manufacturing Company.

Addressing jounrnalists in Lilongwe, Drug Fight Malawi Executive Director Nelson Zakeyo said they consider the tobacco sponsorship of the Peoples Team, as Big Bullets is fondly called as a deliberate and well-orchestrated strategy of the Nyasa Tobacco Manufacturing Company to market its products and increase tobacco consumption among children.

“This is in sharp contradiction to the healthy lifestyle of sports as espoused by FIFA. The tobacco sponsorship deal is also in conflict with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) three which ensures healthy lives and promotes well-being for all at all ages.

“Tobacco use is one of the greatest public health challenges facing the world today. The tobacco epidemic is spreading at an unprecedented rate, leading to nearly 6 million deaths globally each year from lung cancer, heart disease and other tobacco-related illness and causing the death of one in ten adult. By 2030, it is estimated that tobacco-related diseases will be the leading cause of death in Africa,” he said.

In Malawi, Zakeyo said more than 26 percent of men and 7 percent of youths smoke tobacco.

“As an important risk factor for non-communicable diseases, tobacco use is aggravating these conditions in Malawi where already one in three adults aged 25 years and above is hypertensive. While acknowledging that tobacco is Malawi’s top forex earner, it is not in order to promote for the use of tobacco that would in turn see children using the product.

“ The promotion of tobacco use will turn our own children into users and life smokers, hence dooming their
fututre,” he said.

Drug Fight Malawi is a registered NGO working against use of tobacco, marijuana, harmful alcohol consumption and other drugs of abuse.

    Please neba do not make any mistake talking about Limbe Leaf supporting Nyerere. Those were old days when Tobacco money was not considered bloody money. Today there is global outcry over nicotines from tobacco. Curse to those who touch or use bloody money from tobacco. In fact I was surpised how possible that neba can source sponsorship of over 5 million mite. I knew it. That is bloody money.Drug fighter please separate these two aho wants to promote use of blood money.Head on Zakeyu.You are getting support from Nyerere Family. Hahahahahahahahahaha I am enjoying this world.
    Ndimkadabwa a Thewesa ayi ma banja la mapale lapeza sponsor ndipo timulengeza pompano, munena eni blood money. Shiiiiiiiii.

    Nelson Zakeyo , no surname but all first name, what does this man called Nelson Zakeyo smokes, I cant even deduce from his name his district of origin otherwise I could have done more investigation, useless man, if t all this man has a wife, it is better for the wife to seek divorce, this useless man will not assist the wife to grow, a man full of jealous,
    We need a very good bill in Malawi to be passed so that useless NGOs like this one should not find a room in a our beautiful country, it seems most of the NGOs are there to suck donor money

  19. Wadyera says:

    Hahahaha Some people are not only jealousy but insane or wizards (Mfiti) Big Bullets have been struggling for years without sponsorship and today a good Samaritan has come and somebody says “No” to the sponsorship? Its not the first time for a Tobacco Company to sponsor a team we had BAT 555 Challenge trophy in Malawi, We had Limbe Leaf Wanderers which is now Beforwarded aka Nyerere. In England, New Castle United is sponsored by Wonga which is a gambling company, COSAFA sponsored by Castle Lager, we had PALLmall which once sponsored Nation Pool Competition, the Flames Sponsored by Carlsberg so what’s wrong with Nyasa tobacco company Sponsoring a team? This is Ufiti. Sponsorship has got nothing to do with ones behavior. Unless it is manufacturing weapons that means people will use the weapons to kill each other. Are the bullets supporters ISIS/Terrorists/AlQaeda? I thought they are Malawians as anybody else. If anything give them money to run the club then Nyasa should not else NYasa go ahead.

  28. mbex shana says:

    What this man has said is just simple.FFA has an agent here in Malawi who happens to be our president of football association of Malawi so it can’t happen in anyway round more especially the sponsors to turn down their funds due to pressure from Drug org.,no .This is because prior to the accomplishment of the deal FAM has the signotary part as to confirm that all measures have been followed as per FFA ethics.If this deal falls in doldrums it will mean that FAM president is a failure and his all ordeal will be out as majority of people will not understand the whole process.What is wrong with Malawians who follow soccer is that when Bullets is involved in a possible partnership some other fans from other clubs come in and disturb it more worrisome are the big men who entices the young to against Bullets and finally BB falls under siege.What you should know is that silver strikers have sponsorship,Wanderers have sponsorship,Blue eagle have it,Civil again have it,Azam tigers have it,Epac have it,soldiers teams have it,FIsd have it,Mzuni have it,Dedza have it so why you fans still insist not to pave way for Bullets which has been there for a long time without sponsorship?.I know its you people from different clubs who push for bad and you are headed by well known people.Its my plea that we should learn to accept that Bullets Cub is the soley big big house in Malawi and has many achievements than else its a fact that will be there all times. Thanks!

  40. Achumanila says:

    If indeed you have life of the youths at heart,I wish you should fight this cause at the source! Take an injunction stopping growing of tobacco in Malawi because that’s where use of tobacco is being promoted. Look, fields of Marijuana are burnt if found to deter its usage.Do the same with tobacco if u r serious. You can’t allow people grow the crop at the same time stop them from using it! It’s hypocrisy!! To hell with you!! Let those who smoke it blow & those that don’t,don’t!

  66. redeemed says:

    The RSA government in its bid to eradicate the smoking habit it banned the advertising of tobacco on public media, however this attempt has not yield any fruits as it is estimated that over 80% of male citizens are smokers. Another alarming reality is that some women do smoke even while pregnant. I therefore do not subscribe to the above article as people are at liberty to make their own choices.

  67. bingu says:

    What the fuck if someone wants to smoke he will n also drink will drink so u drug company peace off u r a wanderers supporter n beware if being murdered

  68. mboba says:

    Nonsense!!! There’s no correlation between sponsoring a team and tobacco smoking among children. Are u saying in otherwords that carlsberg shudder not support football as it will encourage children to consume it’s products???? You people are confusing with marketing. Xul siinakuthandizeni ndithu….. u wasted ur parents xul fees. Zaisiru Basi. Am not a fan of bullets koma ur call is out of order

  69. This organisation will not help us at all. Just signing the agreement without any work on the ground then smokers have already increased?

    This is a total lie. Most people especially children dont know that there is sponsorship.

    Let this Drug Malawi find alternative sponsorship otherwise we want to repeat MADONNA VS MALAWIANS STYLE OVER DAVIE BANDA.

    IT is time to solve problems as opposed to creating crisis

  70. stephen says:

    ngwa ayaya fc uyu. nsanje chabe. carlsberg is sponsering football, r all youths drinking? and if. u say it will have effects on the yuths let only bb supporters who smoke and wants to start smoking for the sake of spinsirshio smoke and no any other lets see how many will be affectled

  75. nyerere says:

    My neba. Yo are in trouble. BB wants to encourage tobbaco smoking in Malawi. Please Drug Fight try as much as possible to divorce ths relationship now now before BB gets the first K100 million bloody money.

  76. JJ King says:

    Nelson Zakeyo stop misleading people. Less than 1% of people smoke in Malawi and this is bad to the economy. Lets look at the positive side of tobacco apart from its importance to our economy. Studies show that nations with large populations of smokers are prosperous and industrious. Therefore, the nyasa bullets sponsorship is to have positive impact to the country.

    If I were Mr Nelson Zakeyo I would shut up

  77. Alex says:

    Ngati umphawi ukupitilila anthu ake ndinuyo why kuli carsburg cup.osaimisa omwe amapanga chibuku.i think mwini wa bungwe limeneri amutengere ku chipatala wayamba misala.kapena akutuma manoma ndiwe galu kowopsya ndipo ndilande ikakuziwa uziwanso bwino

  78. Galu Mtabeni says:

    Zakeyu or whatever u call yourself, I am ashamed to learn that you are the executive director of Drug Fight Malawi because your reasoning is very pathetic. What is the relationship between the sponsorship and the youth smoking? Have you been told that Nyasa will be distributing free cigarettes during BB’s matches? If the issue here is to prevent youths from smoking, why did the govt give the company a license to manufacture cigarettes? The youth of today can buy cigarettes and smoke if they want to but not because Nyasa is sponsoring BB. And you fool Zakeyu, were u not informed before your stupid and senseless press briefing that BB through FAM got a clearance from FIFA allowing the two parties to proceed with the deal? You are very stupid and I dont know how you found yourself heading Drug Fight Malawi. Nsanje ikupha Zakeyu, manyazi ulibe zoona.

  79. Analyzer says:

    but we grow tobacco and our economy relies on tobacco. have you ever asked Malawians to stop growing tobacco? smoking is by choice. who is fooling who here?

  80. Gadabwali says:

    Man muuze alimi to stop growing fodya or boma to stop giving quota kwa alimi. Komanso mwachedwa. In the first place, you should have stopped the establishment of Nyasa Manufacturing Company. The statistics you have given have always been there even before BB clinched a partnership deal wth NMC. Kusuta or kumwa mowa is a personal choice people make. They cannot stop because of drug fight malawi. Why being retrogresive? Who told you there is a correlation between smoking among the youths and a company entering into a partnership agreement with a football club? Do you want to tell us that beer consumption has increased among the people of Malawi because Carlsberg is sponsoring the Flames? If yes, then your fight should start with stopping the following: Carlsberg from sponsoring the national team, Castle Lager from sponsoring COSAFA, Heinken from sponsoring The European Champions League then NMC. After all the sun shines on those who stand first before it shines on those who sit down, (Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart-paraphrased). Apo bi, then stop making noise about MAPALE, ndi tsidya lina. By the way, what is your comment regarding those who are advocating for the cultivation of industrial hemp? Chamba ndi chamba!

  81. Mkanda says:

    They should also fight the growing of tobacco. Why will children consume tobacco by just having NMC sponsor a Ndirande-based team?

  94. Nyamakumutu says:

    Foolish thinking from a foolish man. Have you ever thought of stopping the Malawi government or farmers from growing tobacco. Even when we grow tobacco in Malawi how may Malawians do smoke. Have you not yourself been educated by tobacco or kachasu man. You think we don’t know you. Foolish leave our team alone. Tell us the altnative sponsor if this will be burned. Akupweteketsa amene akutumawo

    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    This reserch is abstrusely unmethodical hence tasteless!
    …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
    . . . How do you attribute the increase in drug use among the youths to Nyasa Tobacco sponsoring Bullets? This cant be true! Can a Wanderers or Silver supporter increase tobacco consumption because Bullets have found sponsorship? What madness of a reserch is this? Or you are assuming that all youths support Bullets?
    . . . More so, have you found out that the cigars being smoked are Nyasa’s? Come on dude! Which sample have you taken? From Ndirande? But is Ndirande the same as Malawi? Lets us not force our eyes to see what cant be seen!
    . . . Of course, a priori, one could see the link but sample data lacks the blessing of time; coz its not long ago that Nyasa has started sponsoring Bullets.

    . . . And why do people invite trouble on themselves? If Bullets lose this sponsorship because of your insensitive n sensiless accusations on Nyasa Tobacco; will you live? Inu zoti a bullets ali ndi some unruly canternkerous hoodlums simukuzidziwa?
    . . . Inu zoti its much easier to let the cat out of the bag than it is to put it back in, simukuzidziwa? Why not let the sleeping dog lie? Let us love ourselves, n our children n dependent, if we have some.
    ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
    Most importantly, let us not cheat one another with such unmethodical reserch.

    Instead, ask the government of Malawi to Ban Tobacco use and cultivation if that is to help. Funny argument.

  102. Honala says:

    Yes. Nyasa has a hidden motive. I am a a very big supporter of of BB but this development displeases me. Anti Smoking lobby please intervene. Our team will be associated with smoking. Shameful
