Nyasa Big Bullets executive committee have blamed their predecessors on Muhammed Sulumba’s deal flop to join South Africa top league outfit Polokwane City Stars.
Head of Finance Filwood Haiya disclosed their predecessors pocketed R70,000 (about K3.5 million) of the R240,000 (about K16.5 million) transfer fee.
Haiya said the executive committee led by deposed chairman Sam Chilunga surprisingly did not remit the money to the club.
He said the current executive committee led by businessman Noel Lipipa approached some of the members he declined to mention their names agreed to pay back.
” We discussed with of the individuals involved and they have assured to pay back the money to Polokwane City,” he said.
“I cannot disclosed their names its not necessary since they have a commitment to pay.”
Bullets executive committee stopped the process of clearing the player after noticing the anomaly.
Sulumba who had undergone successful trials at the club was offered an 18 month contract.
He returned on Monday and pledged to continue his career at Bullets.
