Southern Region Police deputy commissioner Foster Mangani had claimed the victim was shot as he attempted to grab a gun from a police officer.

But visit at Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital by Sulom Treasurer, Tiya Somba Banda, however revealed that the boy was not shot as it has been widely reported, rather the bullet only bruised his stomach without causing any internal damage.

His condition was not critical as it was feared.

Sleeping on his bed in Ward 5A surrounded by his parents, the boy only managed to speak for three minutes: “I am alright but l cannot really remember what happen because there was a commotion.”

Commenting on the boy’s condition, who is 21 years, Banda told Nyasa Times: “We thank God that the young man has tremendously improved and that his condition is now very stable.”

Banda also said as Sulom they condemn any of illegal activities in and around the stadium. He commended the police for containing the situation.

“We would like to assure the public and the peace loving soccer Malawians that the football arenas will continue to be peaceful and secure,” said Banda.

Banda also pleaded with the media to desist from sensationalism as it may damage the game of football and may deter the corporate world from investing in the game.

During the match, there were a number of notable developments like the match being stopped on two occasions due to teargas, which was dispersed by the police outside the stadium to restore order when chaos erupted.

According to Mangani, hell broke loose when some people were trying to prevent the police from arresting a person who had allegedly stolen a mobile phone.

He said cops acted swiftly by firing teargas to calm the situation.

“The incident had nothing to do with the match. Here was someone who was trying to snatch a rifle from a police officer who was trying to calm the situation. Even if it were you, what could you have done? “Mangani was quoted in the press.

During the match, Wanderers came from behind to draw 1-1 with Moyale Barracks.

The Nomads now have 25 points from 13 games—four short of leaders Big Bullets.
