Big Bullets FC is contemplating dragging Mighty Wanderers to court for defamation over witchraft claims.
Wanderers accused Bullets of bewitching their promising player Omega Mhone who have been nicknamed ‘Megadinho’.
Nomad’s general secretary David Kanyenda made the witchcraft claims, saying the player developed strange illness soon after their Super League game against Bullets.
Kanyenda, a private practicing lawyer, said a witch doctor told Wanderers that their arch-rivals had cast a spell on ‘Megadinho’, saying “it is Bullets.”
He did not disclose the particulars of the witchdoctor who attended to the player.
However, Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire told Nyasa Times on Thursday that they will drag Kanyenda and the Nomads to court for the allegation which he said is defamatory.
“What Mr Kanyenda said has tarnished the image of Bullet. We will be seeking court’s intervention on this matter, “Mkandawire said.
“We feel our image has been tarnished as a club and the public is looking at us as a team of witches. We hold Mr. Kanyenda in high esteem, but as a lawyer and legal adviser and spokesperson for Wanderers, surely he must have known what he was talking about,” said Mkandawire.
“Enough is enough and if you remember he was the same man, who alleged that Bullets was involved in late Robert Chasowa’s case. He must explain all of this in court,” he added.
Mkandawire also rapped Kanyenda, saying he is losing sense of direction and needs help. He advised Wanderers to “consider sending him to a mental hospital for tests.”
The ailing player has since been sent back to his home village in Nkhata Bay to seek further help.
He joined Wanderers from Kasungu where he was playing for Mchenga FC and Ekwendeni Hammers in Mzimba.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
