Bullets, Nomads stadia projects to continue: ‘Ownership to be reviewed’, says sports minister Msungama

Sports minister Ulemu Msungama has assured that  government will continue with the construction of the stadiums for Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers but  said there will be a review of ownership.

Design of the stadia project

Wanderers’ stadium site  is at Kanjedza Forest near Blantyre Teachers College while  Bullets’ site is at Zingwangwa Secondary School ground near Moneymen Club.

Immediate past president Peter Mutharika pledged to construct stadiums for the two TNM Super League outfits during the May 21 2019 Tripartite Elections campaign period and launched the projects in June ahead of the fresh presidential elections which he tumbled.

Now Msungama said the stadiums cannot be said to be owned by the Blantyre teams when its government constructing them.

“The stadiums are part of the nation’s development,” said Msungama on Times Exclusive  television interview on Saturday.

Msungama said the Tonse Alliance led administration has committed to  complete the  stadia project but pointed out that “to say that the stadiums belong to Bullets or Wanderers is another issue.”

Bullets stadium will cost about K3.8 billion and will be built by China Civil Engineering while that for the Nomads will cost about K3.6 billion and will be constructed by Anhui Foreign Economic Construction Company.

The projects were allocated K1.6 billion (K800 million) each in the 2019/20 National Budget.

Msungama said progress has already been made and government will honour the construction.

Nkhalamba thought he could win elections by falsely promising FREE stadiums. Government money, government property, period. If not, let them pay back the money with time.

Then why did Mutharika lose the election if Maule / Manoma supporters outnumber Tonse Alliance 4 – 1? Malawians are not stupid. They can’t support a party just because of football. All the same, this stadia project can be put on hold while the funds are used to repair infrastructure in hospitals, schools etc.

The stadiums won’t belong to the teams as they will be constructed using government money. Why didn’t the teams build with their money? They are not a charity but rather a business hence they will have to be an agreement on how to use them going forward.

its good Nsungama has started swalowing his pride. Last time he said government can not construct stadiums for private teams. Even the battle that he started with walter he will end up with bruises allover his face. Football in Malawi or sports in general does not need a stupid minister like Nsungama. If you want to know about football politics contact Kondi Nsungama to give you free lesson.
