The decision by Bullets executive committee chairman Malinda Chinyama and general secretary Higger Mkandawire to step down at the end of the season has put the future of its clubhouse in jeopardy.
Inside sources said it would be difficult for the Club House to carry on its operations in the absence of Chinyama and Mkandawire since the club was registered in the name of the chairman.
“The question of Bullets Club’s future is a straight forward issue. This club was registered in the name of chairman Malinda Chinyama and if he will not be there I don’t know how it can be sustained,” said one of the team’s prominent supporter.
He said even the employees of the club were paid by an individual.
“If the employees’ salary doesn’t come from the club but from an individual then it is doubtful that they will continue working in the absence of the chairman and general secretary.”
Chinyama, who was instrumental in the setting up of the club house, is on record to have said that the club was registered in his name because Bullets Football Club had not money to run the club.
The situation had forced a running battle over the responsibility of the club with the trustees led by former Flames coach Kinnah Phiri disputing that Malinda and Mkandawire were personalising the operations of the club.
The club house has hosted a variety of entertainment shows ranging from live band performance to drama to raise money for the cash-strapped football giants.
Malinda and Mkandawire had announced that they would no longer serve the club at the end of the season which forced former coach-turned technical director Eddington Ng’onamo to step down.
Caretaker coach Gerald Phiri Snr also followed leaving the team with Lloyd Nkhwazi, goalkeeper trainer Swadick Sanudi and team manager Noel Kaole yet to make their stand known.
Bullets have not done well this year finishing on position eight in the TNM Super League and cup-drought season.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
