‘I am living in fear of Bullets fans’ Malawi star Chimango say

Malawi national team midfielder Chimango ‘Blackberry’ Kayira  has said he is living in fear after  police rescued him from irate Big Bullets fans who threatened to rough him up at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Tuesday morning.

The fans were reportedly angry with the player’s newspaper remarks to the effect that the club had made him poor hence his decision to quit.

The supporters thronged at the stadium before starting showering insults to Kayira, who recently dumped Bullets  for Silver Strikers.

Some of the supporters could be heard using abusive languages on Kayira with others threatening to deal with him for what they called anayalutsa team yawo.

Unabwera ndi chiyani ku Bullets iweyo kuti uziti yakusawukitsa? Ndiwe chitsiru kwambiri ndipo tithana nawe! [What did you have when you joined Bullets to claim that it has made you poor? You are very stupid! We will deal with you]” shouted one fan

As the fans were busy showering the insults, Kayira did not respond as he was busy doing his work-out  together with other national team players.

However, when things got out of hand, Flames coach Edington Ngonamo called the law enforcers, who came at the stadium to escort Kayira to the Flames bus as some of the irate fans were baying for his blood.

“I am still living in fear. The supporters have threatened to beat me,” said Kayira.

“Should a player be afraid of moving to another team that is offering him prospects of a bright future? It is unfair,” he wondered.

Bullets supporters committee chairperson Geoffrey Mbalati said the fans were bitter with Kayira’s remarks in the press but they will not harm him.
