Chande: He now can play for Wanderers

The Disciplinary Committee released the  verdict  between Nyasa Big Bullets and its former player Chande who had signed a pre contract with Wanderers.

Bullets accused  Chande that whilst still in a contract with them which run up to August 13, 2016, illegally signed a contract with Wanderers .

The committee which met to hear the case last Saturday in Blantyre has ruled in favour of Chande that his action were legitimate as according to his contract he was free agent.

“It is the Committee’s finding that the complainants have failed to prove their case on a balance of probabilities,” reads the determination.

FAM noted Bullets contract which was presented was forged.

According to the Arthur Nanthuru led committee, Chande was not at fault as the witness from former Bullets chairman and General Secretary, Kondi Msungama and Harold Fote respectively told the committee in their testimony that they gave Chande a one and half year contract not three years contract as claimed by Bullets in their complaint

The committee attach weight to the testimony if former Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote who described the contract copy that were brought by Bullets as evidence that Chande signed a three years contract with them as a forged

The verdict now means that Chande is free to join and  be registered with Wanderers as a free agent and is available for selection this weekend when the two teams meet in a Blantyre derby.

Meanwhile, the committee  has mocked the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) and Football Association of Malawi for not having a proper way of keeping and ensuring that every player’s contract is deposited with them and are well documented to avoid the Chande incident.

According to the committee it is supposed to be a must for every team through Sulom to deposit their copies of every player’s contract to FAM.

The committee has since schooled Sulom to consider digital mode of keeping files including every player’s contract as it’s the safest mode they can safely keep records of every player’s players contract and other vital information.

Is forgery a crime? What is FAM doing about football officials involved in forgery. Should they face long arm of the law?
If Chande was arrested shouldn’t these officials be arrested as well.
This being Malawi a failed state where nothing works I bet nothing will happen.


Bullets should get back their money from the so called graphics Artist who failed to produce Chande’s fake-like original contract.
1. it looks new yet it was printed two years ago
2. Fonts were not matching with those on original contract
3. signatures were not pen written – photoshoped
Forgery is an art i think.

Petulo was Mitambo
“the complainants have failed to prove their case on a balance of probabilities” a fantastic statement from a committee composed of supposedly Malawian Lawyers or maybe some of them. Which probabilities where these and how balanced were there. What is known is that the committee heavily leaned against the Fote and Msungama testimonies. What else? Don’t we know how these two left Bullets? Do you think it is difficult for the two to discredit Bullets by helping Chande issue a forged contract they would support later knowing that nobody would dispute their finally say.
