Malawi’s football powerhouse Nyasa Big Bullets FC has been thrown in fresh turmoil after players resolved to fire the entire executive committee.
Most players contacted confirmed that they are owed for months and their signing o fee has not been given.
The players held a meeting and passed a vote of no confidence in the Samuel Chilunga-led executive committee.
Team captain Chiukepo Msowoya said the decision to fire the excutive was “unanimous”.
“Players have lost confidence in the current leadership,” said the Bullets captain. “Enough is enough.”
Board of trustees chairperson James Busile confirmed that the players have sacked the executive.
While the club supporters said they welcome the decision by players but said the proposed extraordinary general meeting (EGM) will determine the future of the club as they will discuss club ownership, composition of the executive committee and handling of finances.
Bullets supports chairperson Stone Mwamadi and, secretary of the main supporters committee Manzy Chikoti said they expect ‘the future of Bullets’ meeting this month, citing Article 5.7b of the club’s constitution as giving the supporters powers to call for an EGM.
“The issue of club ownership for example, is crucial in line with the club licensing, so too executive committee setup,” said Mwamadi.
He further said the issue of finances will be key as the club has used almost half of its annual sponsorship yet the players have not been paid their dues such as signing on fees amounting to K43 million.
