It sounded an impressive figure when Big Bullets announced they had made over K 2.5M during the ‘red night’ dinner and dance they held in Blantyre end February.
Most of what the team calculated was in pledges from politicians.
Sports, Youth Development and Welfare minister Simon Vuwa Kaunda was the guest of honour and used his communication skills to bring with him politicians mostly DPP members of parliament who made pledges.
But with over a month now most of those that pledged towards supporting the cash strapped team are yet to pay the money including the minister himself who pledged K60, 000.00
Other defaulters include Joseph Tembo, Cecilia Chazama and Cecilia Chazama, Ralph Jooma Deputy Minister of Health who pledged K50, 000 each.
Reverend Christopher Ngwira Minister of Lands is yet to honour his K70, 000.00 pledge.
Big Bullets treasure Geoffrey Tamu Tamu is quickly losing patience with the politicians following pressure from the team’s supporters who want to see to it all the pledges are collected.
Only Foreign Affairs minister Arthur Peter Mutharika, who pledged to pay for the venue, Comes HalL K260,000.00l, the band K100,000.00 and cash worth K300,00.00 has since made the payment.
Business magnate Jimmy Koreia Mpatsa donated K200,000.
