Bullets FC executive committee has promoted Vice-Treasurer Brian Ligomeka to fill the vacuum of the post of treasurer created after the resignation of Noel Lipipa on Monday.
Ligomeka, who is Managing Editor for Blantyre Newspapers Limited, was initially elected executive committee member before he was offered the position of Vice-Treasurer.
The team’s board of trustees also roped in Alex Gondwe, who lost to Lipipa during the elections, to take up the position of Vice-Treasurer.
In a related development beleaguered Chairperson Kondi Msungama’s intention to step down was rejected by the board of trustees.
James Busile, board of trustees’ chairperson, said Msungama was advised to think twice after indicating his wish to resign.
Busile said Msungama did not stomach Supporters Committee General Secretary Mabvuto Chibambo who accused him of creating confusion in the team after the resignation of Treasurer Lipipa.
“The chairperson was irked by reports that Chibambo had demanded his resignation and that of GS. I advised Msungama that as a leader he need to develop a thick skin,” Busile said.
He disclosed that the internal squabbles had the potential to disturb the club’s efforts of developing.
“It is unfortunate that while we are working hard for the team a few misguided individuals are frustrating such efforts,” he said.
Bullets FC have been making headlines for the wrong reason for the past three weeks leading to the resignation of Supporters Committee Chairperson Isaac Jomo Osman and then Treasurer Lipipa citing financial management by top officials.
