Soccer analyst asks Bullets to open up on CAF funding

Malawi’s renowned soccer analyst Charles Nyirenda has advised Malawi’s Confederation of African Football (CAF) representatives Bullets F.C to come into open and declare its financial status to enable other well wishers come forward and save the country from disgrace once the financial crippled side fail to participate in the tournament.

Nyirenda: Open up

Nyirenda made the plea during Zodiak radio’s TNM Super League Show monitored by Nyasa Times.

The veteran analyst blamed Bullets for all long claiming they are financially ready to participate in the continental showpiece only to come out at an eleventh hour seeking help.

According to Nyirenda, Bullets officials have been banking their hopes of raising the much needed funds on people they did not officially approach.

Recently, Bullets officials through their Chairperson Kondi Msungama expressed worries with the delay by Telecom Networks Malawi Limited (TNM) and other well wishers for not coming forward with financial help despite promising to be with Bullets on their CAF journey during the prize presentation ceremony of the 2014/15 TNM Super League season at the College of Medicine Sports Complex in Blantyre.

The Bullets Chair later gave the team force hopes by confirming that an undisclosed company has promised to provide the club with K150 Million to enable the club participate in CAF.

According Msungama, Bullets need K30 Million to fully complete their trip to Comoros Island to face Fomboni F.C in the first leg of the 2015 CAF preliminary rounds between 13th to 15th February, 2015.

Meanwhile, government through the Minister of Sports Grace Obama Chiumia has appealed to the nation to consider contributing a little something to enable Bullets raise enough funding.

The Minister said she is confident that Bullets will fulfil its fixturte if Malawians join hands.

Despite Bullets being the team with a large following, Chiumia through Zodiak said it is the responsibility of every Malawian to help Bullets as the club will be carrying the flag of the whole nation.

Bullets risk being fined by CAF if they pull out of the competition.

There financial status raised eyebrows among the soccer fraternity when they turned down Football Association of Malawi’s (FAM) plea to deposit money amounting to $20,000 into FAM’s account as a guarantee that they are ready to participate in the competition and that FAM be able to pay fine to CAF once Bullets pulls out.

what a shame to run football teams in Malawi.It just shows how poor organisation from grassroot level,club level and national level.This is the reason why after 50 years of so called independent statehood most football clubs and in general sports is poorly organised,no proper club houses,no proper infrastructure to improve sports.How can football teams be run by individuals,most of them with criminal records.without impecable attributes in society.This is very embarassing for the club,individuals involved and the country as such. Where is common sense in this issue?Wake up people!Sort out this non-progressive attitude There is a lot to be done… Read more »

No dear brothers and sisters let sin sinned by one be sinned by all of us. Give necessary ade if we all wish Bullets the best. These guys Kondi and the crue did not commit any by declaring interest of participating in CAF competition. Only that they banked their hope on rock. This time things are not ok, for the sake of our nation, let us help the team.


Just declare the teams financial position,then people will hell us.

Why supporting Bullets? the companies are reluctant to support Bullets coz of “KUBA” and they will gain nothing out of that aaaa inu osangogula ma offals bwanji, awatu afuna atole chikwama basi kweni kweni KONDI ndi thakwe.

Lets support BB. They will indeed represent Malawi as a Nation

Msangaambe Phiri

It is bcz the club is surrounded by ppl who are business minded like failing to raise problems they club is facing.I say from experience that Burundian citizens are business minded ppl bcz they come to Malawi to open businesses not to work.So this couch from Burundi is not even concerned bcz he is being paid millions of Kwachas and can not address such problems facing the entire club.

Msangaambe Phiri

Bullets officials will be responsible to pay CAF is the club will not participate.Bcz they are reluctant to declare the financial status of the club.It doesnt make any sense if you got problems in your house and you hiding pretending to be doing better,only to be discovered by your ppl that this one is in hot soup.You think who is going to attend to your problems if you dont speak out????
