Relegated TNM Super League outfit Civo United players on Monday held a vigil at their club house as one way of forcing their management to pay them their outstanding dues.
Nyasa Times understands that the players converged at the club house following an assurance from the executive committee that they will get all their outstanding unpaid dues from last season only to be offered K30,000.
According to one player who spoke to Zodiak Radio on Monday night while still at the club house, apart from their December to February Monthly salaries, the management is also yet to finalize paying them their signing on fees.
Hell broke when the players were offered only K30,000 eachas they vehemently turned down.
They claim some players including Gerald Mkungula, Blessings Phiri,Alick Jana and Chisomo Hiwa were paid K100,000 few days ago.
The disgruntled players vowed to spend the night at the club house until they get
their money Tuesday morning as promised after discussions.
Meanwhile, veteran soccer analyst Charles Nyirenda has faulted the Civo United management on the matter.
“The team got relegated in December 2016 and by now they could have sorted out all these issues. This is a management problem because we always sit on problems” said Nyirenda.
Civo got relegated from the elite league after one of their first ever worst season since the club was formed in 1987.
According to the rules, the team will play in the lower league in the 2017/18 season.
