‘Mercenaries’ spoil Be Forward Wanderers sponsorship launch: Police use tear gas

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.

    i was following the game on the Radio and the commentators said that there was no bullets fans ”neighbour” because they were tired with four goals from Sudan. Now to insinuate that it was bullets fans who caused the fracas aren’t you mad? or which is which? do you think Bullets fans have time for mere local football between poor ailing nomads and the so called silver strikers? Is this the first time for nomads and silver to fight? aren’t they coming from suspension? check your history and leave bullets alone as they prepare for their wonderful international game. Munvetu!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Dear Mr Author…

    Do you really understand the meaning of the term GAFFER as used in the footballing circles?
    My question is in reference to the picture with a caption saying “Be Forward gaffer with Nomads player”.

    I suggest you stick to the easy terms that you know you can use other than trying to be clever the picture and the term used don’t make sense.

    Regards

  32. Geoma says:

    Let Silver strikers players accept the blame, by producing foul language to the ref and stepping into opp player deliberately that is being immature.. So all these offences were the causative of the abandonment

    zimenezi ndizimene zimabwezela mpira mbuyo . Iwe kaya ukuti chemtukanika kaya chemtuwatupa, don’t mislead the masses. Why do you fault organisers. Organisers are not the problem. You are the problem. Change your mindset. We don’t have enemies in the game of football. Silver are our friends not enemies as you put it. Live a civilised life man.

    1. Chemtukanika says:

      Kaya ndiwe kaya wakutumayo.the organizers are the cause of all these.Don’t defend them.They know very well what these two teams did at Balaka that forced Sulom to punish them.These teams according to Malawians football are enemies.Being a friendly game,the organizers would have paired Be Forward with any team from the centre.If you are one of those organizers,then you have put Malawi to shame before the Japanes and the whole world.Therefore,I don’t see any reason why BB should be mentioned here.Why didn’t BB supporters fight them when they joined the Fombonis?Backwards thinking.
