The lifting of the ban is with an immediate effect, meaning the stadium is ready for any local matches.

Nyirenda also said Sulom is waiting Mighty Wanderers officials to write them on their plea for their ban at the stadium to be lifted as well.

“We want all Blantyre teams to enjoy the facility and it is up to Wanderers officials to write Sulom for their ban to be re-considered, “said Nyirenda.

During the signing ceremony, military teams and civilian teams showed solidarity to curb out violence and shook hands to show the end of their differences.
