Malawi national football team’s 2-1 loss to Guinea has proved that people always want to associate with success.
This follows Allie Mwachande of Mangochi Investment who pledged to reward any goal scorer with K50,000 cash.
But Mwachande in a dramatic turn of events has backtracked not to honour his pledge which was made to public through Galaxy Radio prior to the games played on March 29.
Mwachande’s dishonesty has denied Chiukepo Msowoya who was automatically entitled to win having scored the only goal of the Flames.
“It was very clear. I said I will give the money to the winning goals not just a goal,” Mwachande said.
“So Flames lost the game do you expect me to give out the money.”
He claimed that he sourced the money for the pledge and has been returned to the well wishers.
“I sourced the money from well wishers and the money was returned to the owners,” he said without disclosing how much was involved.
The Football Association of Malawi Elections (FAM) presidential Elections aspirant said that he would reward K50,000 to any of the goals scored.
FAM General Secretary described Mwachande’s stand as unfortunate.
“Although the pledge was not made official its sad that Mwachande has decided not to live up to his word,” Suzgo Nyirenda said.
“We don’t normally make follow ups because we trust that those make pledges before a game do it on trust and are responsible.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
