Soldiers in civilian attire on Sunday, November 18, 2012 harassed vocal Big Bullets fans as the visiting Bullets pulverized Kamuzu Barracks 3-0 in a TNM Super League clash at Civo Stadium in the capital city.
The incident happened in the game’s second half as Bullets took a 2-0 lead- courtesy of quick goals from Chimango Kayira and Diverson Mlozi.
Kayira struck just a minute after resumption with a well calculated rebound before Mlozi followed with the second after Kamuzu Barracks goalkeeper Victor Nangwale had spilled the ball into the striker’s path.
After the goals, Bullets fans burst into wild celebrations with some of them going round the pitch in celebration.
As the Bullets’ fans passed through the stand where KB soldiers were seated, a small group of soldiers pounced on them, forcing the singing supporters to trust their heels.
Later the Bullets fans mobilized themselves on the stand next to the KB fans and started taunting the soldiers.
They called the soldiers ‘alonda’ (watchmen) while another group of Bullets fans sitting far from the place sang ‘Alonda mitu sikugwira, alonda mitu sikugwira’ (watchmen’s heads are not functioning).
As the battle of words raged on, Mlozi made it 3-0 for Bullets with a brilliant strike after taking on the opponents’ defence.
With the ‘wounded’ soldiers preparing for another assault, the Bullets’ fans sitting closer to the KB supporters vacated the stand for their safety.
There were no more squabbles after the final whistle and KB coach attributed the loss to poor defending and missed opportunities.
His counterpart Eddie Ng’onamo praised his charges for playing according to game plan.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
