Former Epac FC Coach Leo Mpulula has filed a law-suit against his former employees and is demanding K1 million compensation for unfair dismissal.

Mpulula was fired mid last year during the middle of the Super League first round season on grounds the club described as poor run of form.

His constructive firing came the time the former Escom, Blantyre United and Azam Tigers mentor was ill and needed a break as he still had a running contract with Epac FC.

After the club announced his firing, Mpulula threatened to take legal action against the decision.

The club through its Chairman Trickston Chiutsi afterwards had to change the tune of firing and claimed Mpulula was just on medical leave.

Mpulula, who by then insisted he had a running contract with Epac, was not given his benefits in line with what was in the contract he signed with the club.

He was later not returned as coach and Epac went on to hire the services of Audley Makonyola.

Epac FC General Secretary Chiyanjano Lita confirmed receiving the court summon on Tuesday 6th December 2016.

“Indeed we have received the summon letter but we cannot say much because the matter is in court,” Lita told a local radio.

In the letter, Mpulula is demanding his monthly salaries for a couple of months among other damages.

Mpulula hasn’t gotten any permanent job since he parted ways with Epac.
