Rival fans (ganyu) spoiled the K70 million Mighty Be Forward Wanderers sponsorship launch on Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium during their friendly match against Silver Strikers as they pelted stones onto the field of play forcing the law enforcers to use teargas carnisters.
The game had to be abandoned in the 76th minute after police fired tear gas into the stands when violence broke up from Wanderers rival fans.
The bankers were first to score through a well curved free kick by Blessings Tembo before the Nomads equalized on spot kick courtesy of Cuthebert Sinetre.
In a match which was marred with hard tackles, the Nomads saw their two realible players Richard Chipuwa and Bongani Kaipa off due to injuries.
Silvero enjoyed ball possesion especially on the midfield where Timothy Chitedze and Ndaziona Chatsalira outplayed Rafiq Mussa.
However, after several changes by the Nomads coach Elijah Kananji in the second half, they stole the show from the bankers.
The tempers flared in this half after the Nomads were awarded a penalty when Jimmy Zakazaka was trickled down in the 18 yard box.
Silver Strikers captain Lucky Malata used foul language to the referee before being sent for an early shower.
Things got worse when Ndaziona Chatsalira stepped on the Nomads new catch from Cameroun on the face before being shown marching orders.
There was total disagreements as the Silver players mobbed the referee before ganyu fans, who occupied stand normally filled by Big Bullets started pelting stones.
Malawi Police Service were called in to calm down the situation but the ganyu fans continued their unruly behaviour.
Left with no choice, the police fired more teargas carnisters to disperse the ganyu fans.
The game was called off with 14 minutes to go.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
