Govt completes Bullets, Wanderers stadiam designs

Ministry of Sports, Youth and Culture has completed drawing designs for Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers football clubs stadia.

Bullets Haiya shows the design for their stadium 

President  Peter Mutharika announced in January last year that government would construct two stadia for the giant teams.

Bullets picked land in Zingwangwa near Moneymen Growth Centre along Chikwawa Road while Wanderers opted for land near Kanjedza Forest in Limbe West opposite Blantyre Teacher Training College.

In April, the stakeholders including Malawi National Council of Sports, the line Ministry and Blantyre City Council, handed over the land earmarked for the projects, which will cost K1.7 billion for both stadia.

Speaking in Parliament on Friday last week when he presented the Mid-Year Budget Review Statement, Minister of Finance and Economic Planning Joseph Mwanamvekha said procurement of contractors and the commencement of the projects are at an advanced stage.

Minister of Sports, Youth and Culture Francis Phiso in an interview said government has used its preferred choice of designs.

“We met officials of the two clubs and they made their input on the designs and told us areas of improvement. We have taken into account of what they advised us to do and now what is remaining is for us to advertise and identify the contractor,” said Phiso.

In an interview Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga said: “this is a good gesture by the government, a gift is a gift and to us, we only appreciate what government has done.

“We will not be looking at the tiny details but we are looking at this with a bigger picture which is that government is building us a stadium. We are praying for the commencement of the project which will make our supporters very happy.”

On his part, Wanderers General Secretary Victor Maunde said he has to consult the committee which was set up to pursue the project before commenting.

Nyasatimes nanuso mukumapasidwa banz kapena ndi a dpp eti? Tikudabwa nanu. We start shunning your platform. Pakuchuluka zopusa pano. When the govt is playing with people’s minds, dont side with them. Let then use mbc platforms. We visit nyasa because we expect mature and realistic content. Is this clear?

Ma university 5 alikuti? Ana anjoka inu a dpp. Nanga nsewu wakwathu ku neno mukamaliza liti? Nsewu wa M1 between lilongwe and nkhamenya is in very bad shape. Nsewu wa lakeshore between nkhotakota and dwangwa…..is pathetic. Chimanga chadula moyipa. Teachers are not being paid in time. Others are yet to get December 2019 pay. We can go on and on. Here you are telling us that you want to start building stadiums……Are you mad????? Leave these notes for Dr. Chakwera and Dr. Chilima. We are tied of non performers.

Sad part is educated people making useless decisions.
These teams are not worthy of such structures. Malawians are suffering. Give them medicine in hospitals and food in their homes.
What do our colleges teach? I have a serious problem with the thinking is some people who walked through the walls of chirunga. So stupid

Do not put a lot of hope in these political projects. Just wait for its completion. You may end up being disappointed. Akukuseweretsani mafana. Also, look at the type of stadia which this government has been building, substandard and a sore in the eye. Go to Balaka, Dedza stadia etc. Nothing to go to town for. No international game by FIFA can be played there. Zamasanjezi adzaleka liti ndikuyamba za serious zoti tingaziyike pa international scale? Cry my beloved country!
