Malawi’s international Joseph ‘Shakira’ Kamwendo has donated K180, 000.00 to his former club Mighty Wanderers FC for players to share among themselves as a token of appreciation for winning the 2013 Standard Bank Cup.
The Nomads clipped Lilongwe giants Silver Strikers through a lone goal scored by Mike Kaziputa in a thrilling final held at Civo Stadium last Saturday.
Mighty Wanderers General Secretary, David Kanyenda, confirmed to Nyasa Times that the former Wanderers genius midfielder and skipper was delighted
with his former side and thought of appreciating and encouraging the players by giving them money to share.
“Joseph loves Wanderers and he showed it when he donated the cash to the players to share for being crowned Standard Bank Cup Champions. We are very thankful to him,” said Kanyenda.
The flamboyant general secretary also disclosed that their Board of Trustee’s Chairman, Rashid Gaffar, aka Rashy, also gave the players K250.000 to share for successfully defending the Standard Bank Cup.
Kanyenda said the players will share the money including the K50, 000 which the businessman tycoon had promised for each goal scored.
The Wanderers goal was accredited to Mike Kaziputa, according to Kanyenda, because at the time Silver Strikers midfielder Blessings Tembo deflected it into his own net, the ball was about to kiss the back of the net.
But the players agreed before the game to share the money (for goals scored), according to Kanyenda.
Meanwhile, Kamwendo who is on the verge of signing for DRC’s TP Mazembe may be heading home to play for his former team on a two-month loan pending his move to the mineral-rich nation.
“We are in talks with Kamwendo to join us for a period of two months before he joins TP Mazembe in January,” said Kanyenda.
The 27-year-old star Flames talisman, currently plying his trade in Mozambique is expected to travel to DRC this week for a medical.
Mazembe are reported to have signed a sale agreement with his Mozambican employers Liga Maculmana on Tuesday.
Kamwendo’s manager, Felix Ngamanya Sapao, said the medical will pave the way for the midfielder’s long-awaited move to the former Africa club champions but declined to reveal his contract terms and duration.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
