President Peter Mutharika has bought Marcopolo luxury coaches for domestic football powerhouses—Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers— and the the buses arrived in the country on Thursday.
Presidential press secretary Mgeme Kalilani said the buses were being branded for the two teams.
“Marcopolo coaches have been bought with President Mutharika’s personal money and not government,” said Kalilani.
President Mutharika responded to requests made by the two clubs during the launch of their stadia projects.
Responding to the requests from the two teams to buy them buses during last Saturday’s function, the President said: “Funso la mabasi… Mabasi tikupatsani lero. Bus imodzi kwa Big Bullets, bus ina kwa Be Forward Wanderers.”
However, the two teams did not get the buses on the same day as promised as his officials identified two]small 16-seater Hino buses and the State President said no.
He wanted bigger buses and that is when the Marcopolo coaches were identified.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
