The  game ended 4-3 in favour of the Peoples Team.

In its letter signed by Karonga United Vice General Secretary Ralph Kasililika which is addressed to Sulom, they have raised a number of complaints.

The letter states that in the 87th minute into their game against Bullets, when they were protesting a goal which they believe was scored on an off-side position, some Bullets supporters attacked their chairman Alufeyo Chipanga Banda, and some executive members that include Robert Luhanga and Dave Katete.

“In the process Mr Chipanga lost some of his belongings like a Sumsung Galaxy phone worth K280,000 and cash meant for players allowances amounting to K400,000,” states the letter.

The letter also alleged that Mr Dave Katete’s phone was damaged in the process of a scuffle, and that Mr Luhanga also lost his phone worth K55,000 and cash amounting to K94,000.

“All of them were badly injured and went to a nearby hospital. Hope you will take strong measures to stop these malpractice in the future game,” reads the conclusion of the letter.

Sulom General Secretary Williams Banda accepted that they  have received the letter from Karonga, but was quick to state that they will refer it to the appropriate committee for further action.

“I have just seen the letter, and we will refer it to the appropriate committee for further action. But let me stress it here that both parties have a case to answer,” said Banda.

This is not the first time for Bullets fans to be involved in a scuffle at Kamuzu Stadium. During their game against Azam Tigers they were also involved in a scuffle with the referee Andy Kuseli and a journalist, who was beaten for taking pictures.

The incidence reached at an extent of the police firing teargas’s canisters’ to disperce the angry fans, who were baying for the referee’s blood.

Generally, SULOM treats Bullets with kids gloves. It takes ages to investigate any issue involving Bullets while other teams verdict is made within days. No wonder Bullets regard SULOM as one of their subcommittees.
