Bakhresa Milling Malawi Limited has hit back at Tigers FC famously called ‘Kau Kau’ Boys over allegations that the company duped the Kanjeza based outfit.
Bakhresa Grain Milling Limited named the Club Azam after their Azam Brand Products.
Tigers was getting a K1 million allocation from Bakhresa every month which was below their K4million monthly budget according to club Chairperson Sydney Chikoti and Technical Director Robin Alufandika.
This prompted Tigers officials to open doors to other companies and individuals of good will to come in as co-sponsors and partner Azam.
Bakhresa maintains that the contract came to an end based on mutual termination agreement following discussions involving both parties.
“Bakhresa Malawi Limited amicably terminated the football sponsorship support which we had with Azam Tigers FC last year, Tigers FC was not duped as claimed” said Bakhresa’s Richard Tchereko, Human Resource and Compliance Manager for Bakhresa Malawi Limited who also doubles as communications person.
Following Bakhresa’s complete pull out, Tigers faced alot of financial challenges last season resulting in losing some of its key players who leftvin search of greener pasture.
The team has since been relying on well wishers particularly Chikoti and Alufandika until recently when Alufandika.
Alufandika officially announced last week that from now onwards the team will now be called ‘Mighty Tigers’.
The club management will be meeting on 18th February to make resolutions ahead of the 2019 season
