FA Malawi launches probe into Bullets violence at Chilomoni Stadium

Football Association of Malawi (FAM) is expected to launch an investigation into a fracas that marred Wednesday’s FISD Challenge Cup
Round of 16 match involving Nyasa Big Bullets and Karonga United which was played at the Chilomoni Stadium in Commercial City of Blantyre.

Jangale: Football is not war

FAM Acting Competitions Manager Casper Jangale confirmed the development.

Jangale said his association has started gathering information relating to the alleged violence.

The trouble flared at half time in the tunnel as players were heading to the dressing room.

It is alleged that some Bullets fans attacked and snatched bottles of water belonging to Karonga players and a First Aid Kit Box from the
Team Doctor suspecting he was keeping Juju.

This followed Karonga’s impressive performance in the first half which saw them scoring two quick goals to take the lead by half hour mark before Bullets equalised later and went on to win 4-2 in the second half.

While strongly condemning the behavious of Bullets fans, Jangale said once reports are submitted to FAM from relevant authorities, the
association will carry out thorough investigations before acting.

“To be flank what happened was not good and uncalled for but as FAM, we are awaiting for reports from the referee, referee’s assessor,
match cordinator and other relevant authorities” said Jangale.

“The is no place for anti-social violent behaviour in the game of football and together let us restrain so that we safeguard the
football sponsorship we are enjoying from companies like FISD” said Jangale adding that ‘football is not war’.

Violence have overshadowed most of the games played at the MDC Stadium and other Stadiums mostly as a result of Juju beliefs.

Meanwhile, 11 Super League clubs risk being fined by the the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) and FAM after being involved in different
ranges of violence and fracas in their respective matches.

During Wednesday’s FISD Cup Game, second half was delayed by some minutes after Karonga United players refused to return to the field of play for their safety.

It had to require the intervention of FAM Vice President Daud Suleman,
Match Coordinator Mabvuto Missi and other officials

What do u expect from cigarrets smokers?


in any Game one must win.masapota a maule ziwani zimenezo


I am a staunch Bullets supporter but the Behaviours of a few criminals among us give the team a bad name. Punishing the team does not help but the individuals should be identified and dealt with severely. Otherwise a fine to the team leaves these hoodlums with no any pain and they live to commit another sin

This is irritating to some of us, where is Malawian football heading?, why always same teams making stupid things in the game of football?, why is it the football governing in the country has been so lenient with these stupid teams, which can’t even appreciate the beauty of playing peacefully?,. In football it’s about tactics not juju, thus why football coaches are being to as Tacticians in Europe. If Karonga outplayed you, it means its tactics were much better than yours, so it was a matter of revisiting your tactics and game approach, not inciting violence. The other thing learnt… Read more »
