Nyasa tells BB: ‘Follow the leader Chilunga or lose sponsorship’

A  cigarette manufacturing company which sponsors  Malawi’s most prestigious football team, Big Bullets has told the club to end  the infighting which has taken centre stage in the executive  committee and follow chairperson Sam Chilunga if a K500 million sponsorship deal should be secure.

Chilunga: Bullets chair holds key to sponsorship

Bullets risk losing the  Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC)  sponsorship if the executive decided to ignore Chilunga.

Chairman  of Nyasa, Konrad Buckle  summoned an emergency meeting on  Monday at the company’s offices with the team’s trustees, main executive committee, supporters committee and the team’s captains and gave his demands to have Chilunga take control.

He warned that if Chilunga is not in charge of Bullets,  Nyasa will withdraw its  package of K100 million annually for five years.

Buckle refused to comment on the issue, but expressed the hope that  “everything will be followed accordingly.”

The sponsor has warned that they will pull out if the infighting does not stop.

Bullets, twice champions of the country’s Super League and who command the biggest fan base spread throughout the tiny and soccer-mad southern African nation, has been without sponsorship for nine years since former president Bakili Muluzi sponsored them for two years.

Most of the 16 teams in Malawi’s poorly-run amateur super league are sponsored by the Army, Police and government. The rest are owned by private clubs.

    I know s. Chilungu. He is trustworthy and honest. His trustworthy has earned him trust from sponsors who know that their money will BEST be accounted for under his leadership and I BELIEVE players will benefit a lot from his honest.

    Good move mwina Coach wosatha uja atisiye azipita limodzi ndi mbabva achina Mandiza and company. We are also aware that the Nyasa is on the brink of closure due to stiff competetion exerted by the non licensed Chinese cigarette manufactures being treated with kid gloves by the blue DPP govt, so this threat is both a threat and a sanity trigger.

    amene ayambitsenso nyasi zolimbana ndi chair,ndimudula nkhwiko,mwini wa sponsorship ndi iyeyo,enanu mwakhala pamipando zaka zambirimbiri koma osayipeza,ndisadzamvenso wina akuti fwikofwiko

  14. Che Wanimiliyoni says:

    What sort of management is this Mr Sponsor, is this how you deal with dissenting views at your firm? The boss is always right attitude! My fellow Bullets fans let’s brace for tough times ahead coz I dont see any future in this deal if it is tied to an individual like this. What the sponsor would have done was to urge the warring factions solve the issue amicably and in a democratic manner and in worst case scenario help with an emergency elective AGM. But as things stand who can blame anybody concluding that the sponsor’s favourites have some stakes in this deal?

    Let leave the club to be run profetionally for the benefit of the club and player.All thieves must be removed.We are tired seing our players walking and being beggers.They should earn enough to support themself and family.

  19. ya_smoothDJ says:

    Those that are opposing this move must resign fourth with. Let Chilunga lead the way.

  20. mzungumbuli says:

    Bullets, team ya mbava, team ya anthu osakhulupirika, team ya mavenda, team ya anthu osaphunzila, team yopanda mwayi, team yochititsa manyazi, team ya Achawa. I therefore advise Nyasa Cigaret Manufactures to withdraw their sponsorship and possibly find another team to sponsor. Nyasa guys its better to sponsor a small team and protect your image other than a big team like Bullets and spoil your corporate image. Thats free advice !!!!!!!

    akuba nonse ofuna kumakuchindani kumatako mufe nsanga anthu oipa inu,anyalumbe agalu ogona mumanda inu.

    I am very happy with the decision of the nyasa manufacturing company,,,,this is what i am expecting for….all thiefs must go,,we want our team to do better this coming season…secondly players welfare must improve this year,,,bravo nyasa bravo chilunga….

  23. mzungumbuli says:

    I saw it coming long time ago, and the marriage between Nyasa and Big Bullets will not last. Nyasa were just blind to give money to these “habitual thieves” Bullets Executive is full of thugs, brutes,untrustworthy, liers, anthu akuba ng’ombe, Ife tinasangalala kuti Bullets yapeza sponsorship kuti ng’ombe zathu m’midzimu zisungike coz team imeneye………eeeeishi

  26. David says:

    Wen u c no loop hole u tend to create one, kodi bullets only
    supporters in the south? Wats so special with south there is central, north, and they dig inside their pockets for the team akumwera wat do they know? Kudya basi. Mlekeni yamukwana nguwo abvale.

  27. Geoffrey Lwanja says:

    we know why there is always confusipn in BB and Wanderers.When thieves see that there would no/or little chance of stealing frlm the funds,they deliberately churn trouble.

    Ena mwaba mokwanila ngati mulibe chochita mtaunimo pitani ku mudzi mukalime.Mtaunimo sitikalilamo usapota ayi.A supporter is not a parasite nor a thief.Don’t cheat people in the name of supporting while you syphone funds.
