Eagles went on to grab the K15 million trophy courtesy of a contentious penalty awarded to them by referee Mischeck Juwa in the dying minutes of the game.

Hell eventually broke loose soon after Juwa had brew the final whistle as some Bullets players led by Chiukepo Msowoya and other fans bayed for Juwa’s blood.

While the drama was unfolding on the pitch, other Bullets fans were also showcasing another episode from the stands where they were pelting missiles in all directions and trying to damage the Stadium’s property.

But when asked to assess the damage caused by the fracas, Ning’ang’a told Nyasa Times that; “the damages were not that extensive as earlier feared, it is just part of windows of our ticket and corporate rooms in the western part that were broken and one plastic chair was removed.”

Ning’ang’a then went on to condemn the barbaric acts before hailing the organizers- Football Association of Malawi (FAM) for a job well done in organizing the match.

“This type of violence and anger in breaking of property has no room in Malawi football. At least the Football Association of Malawi tried their best in organizing the game well,” said Ning’ang’a.

However, he could not attach the monetary value of the property which was damaged.

Meanwhile, FAM, Airtel Malawi and Nyasa Big Bullets have since condemned the violence.

In this day and age, we have mobile phone cameras. I can estimate over 20,000 cameras were in the stadium. Is there no one with camera evidence for perpetrators of madness and damage? If Mr. Ning’ang’a can put a price on any such evidence, this madness can be put to a stop.

A Ninganga amasapota Bullets, why downplaying the damage, you want them to be treated fairly while the tax payer foots the bill to renovate the damage.
