Muluzi says can help Bullets  ‘even through a prayer’

Malawi former president Bakili Muluzi who in 2004  sponsored Bullets FC [Bakili Bullets] on a three-year deal worth K15 million (about $30 000), before adding over K70 million (about $140 000) for CAF assignments, said he was ready to offer help to the club again  ‘even through a prayer’.

In comments published in the press, Muluzi said he could offer his help because of love of the football.

“It’s something of pride not only to Bullets but country because when clubs are doing well, the national team also does well. So, we need to strengthen clubs,” said Muluzi as quoted by The Nation.

“My experience was that the team was heavily supported. At one point, I sent them to England for a month to expose their talent. Therefore, between now and February, the team needs a lot of practice and discipline because we want them to win,” advised Muluzi.

He said Bullets did not approach him as a former sponsor, indicating: “I am sure I would help…even offer a prayer for them. In other words, I was not doing that because I was President. You may recall that, at one time, I was in the committee of [Mighty] Wanderers as secretary.”

Bullets chairman Kondi Msungama who has hinted that they have secured sponsorship to be unveiled soon, said he keeps in touch with Muluzi for inspiration as father, but they feel he did his part and do not want to “overload him”.

The  Malawi champions have joined the  Confederation of African Football (CAF) Club Championship and  will start the campaign  in preliminary round on the weekend of February 13 against Fomboni Club de Moheil of Comoros island who have a Malawian player Winster Phiri formerly of Bullets bitter rivals Be Forward Wanderers.

The Bullets are making a return to continental football after 10 years.

Muluzi recalled that he gave “quite substantial amount of money” for Bullets.

“ You know, running a club is not cheap and what you get from gate collections is not enough. I was doing that out of passion. I love football. I am happy that Kondie was in the committee. I think he can share a lot of experiences,” said the former president Muluzi who once bankrolled the flagship Super League.

Bullets are seeking K180 million (about $360 000) sponsorship for the 2015 CAF Champions League campaign.
