Big Bullets Supporters Committee chairperson Isaac ‘Jomo’ Osman has resigned amid an impasse with the main executive committee over allegations of financial management.
Osman, popularly known as Jomo in football circles, claimed in an interview that, he has resigned following threats on his life.
He accused Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote of plotting against his life after questioning the financial management of the team’s executive committee and handling of players’ transfer deals.
“I have resigned because some people in the executive committee particularly the General Secretary Mr Horold Fote is not happy with me,” Osman said.
“Last night [Sunday] some people told me that they were ‘hired’ by Harold Fote to assault me because I have been questioning them on how they have used the K25 million [donation from former President Joyce Banda] and the K9 million Carlsberg Cup prize.”
He said the current executive committee led by chairman Kondi Msungama as chairman was repeating the mistake of their predecessors on financial management.
“We fought hard to remove Higger [Mkandawire] former General Secretary and chairman Malinda Chinyama because of the same,” Osman said.
“I am happy that I am leaving while the team is performing well.”
Fote said he could not comment on the issue because he was aware of Jomo’s move.
“We are not aware of his resignation. And if he is intending there are laid down procedures to follow than announcing through the media,” Fote said.
The development comes weeks of cold war within Bullets executive committee and its supporters committee over mismanagement of money.
But Fote was on record to have said that both warring camps reached a compromise to work in the interest of the team.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
