Mike Tumbukas will not be treated that way because one of them has misbehaved. Hellings did not do whatever he did inspired by Tumbukas. So when a Chewa has misbehaved its not all Chewas who would do or support that. Judging Tumbukas with your usual hatred wont assist matters here. How many henous crimes have been committed by your tribesmen and how many by Tumbukas? I choose to thisnk you have a special hatred for Tumbukas who have done nothing other than your own envy for their zeal and interrect. Yours is but interrectual vandalism because on average they are… Read more »

If you can see mistake Peter did surprised me. I’m sure he was not alone but hard evidence points to him. He should come clean and reveal all . Don’t put this it tribelisms it’s a national team problem, you can see how your team losing always blame the coach. Now you are getting deep secret what is going in your team. Mwakasungula must vomit all

I agree with you. Peter Mponda had to fall down with a drible which was not common with him. FAM must wake up and investigate our players. We need not to wait for FIFA to be investigating for us.

I followed this game between Angola and Malawi, I cant blame Hellings Mwakasungula, this investigation does not make sense because after the game between Algeria and Malawi, some how the boys were tired more especiallary the Angola game and our team failed to contain the pressure which was originating from a certain middle fielder from Angola and based on that Angola created a highway and if you can replay the game you will see that zigoli zinachokera malo amodzi and after that game please also analyse the Malawi -Malawi game, you will see that we lost due to fatigue and… Read more »

So in their group only Malawian players were tired? Tired after getting $1000.00 Let’s call a spade a spade, The guy was wrong and must apologise. We have many football players but only 11 are selected as our representatives. They need not to blackmail us.

As yu can see HELLINGS my bro was playing central midfield role along with Davie BANDA and the game which they are accusing was played on 16 jan-2010,helling was playing as adefending mid field , how come they are accusing the midfielder instead of defenders like mponda sangala and kafoteka who were at the back and movie ya chigoli choyamba cha angola ina chokera patali

STUPID MALAWIANS WHO ARE INVESTIGATING THIS MATTER ,MATCH FIXING CANNOT AT ALL HAPPEN IN MALAWI ,BASED ON THE CURRENT SITUATION OF OUR TECHNOLOGY,WE HAVE NOT YET REACHED TO THAT STAGE OF HAVING MACHINES THAT CAN MANIPULATE THE RESULTS , IT HAPPENS IN EUROPE WHERE MATCH FIXING IS RAMPAGED AND THEY HAVE EXPERTS WHO HAVE INTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE AND TECHNICAL KNOW-HOW. FIFA IS TRYING TO JEOPARDISE HIS CAREER IN FOOTBALL BECAUSE THERE IS NO EVIDENCE THAT HE WAS RECEIVING MONEY FROM A PARTICULAR GROUP,SO DONT COMMMENT BADLY ON THIS GUY WITHOUT HAVING THE EVIDENCE TO SUPPORT YOUR ARGURMENT.

the case is from the African Cup of Nations in 2010, when we beat Algeria 3-0 and lost to the host Angola 2-0. so it is alleged that Hellings pocketed $1000 from Angola as evidenced from the e-mail exchanges between the two parties in order to sell our team, also FIFA is saying other players from Malawi were involved too. the investigation is still ongoing.
this man is not good for Malawi he should be kicked out of our country we don’t need such unpatriotic beings here.
