Nyasa Big Bullets Chairman Noel Lipipa has admitted that the club is in a serious ‘Constitutional Crisis’.
This follows an exodus of Board of Trustees members who tendered in their resignation letters citing the ongoing disagreements with the supporters led by the supporters committee as the major cause.
Chairman of the Trustees James Busile was the first to resign followed by board of trustees member Gregory Madeya before others joined the band wagon some few days ago.
This forced others including Board of Trutees General Secretary Jim Kalua, Leagal Advisor Gaston Mwenelupembe, Malinda Chinyama, Victor Msowoya and others to throw in the towel.
Almost all the board of trustees officials expressed disappointment with the behaviour of Bullets fans who are accused of having more powers than anybody at the club.
The trustees emphasized they are fed up and doesn’t want to be ‘part of the mess’ anymore.
Bullets Executive Committee Chairman told a local radio on Friday that the club is indeed in a mess and that the departure of the Board of Trustees Members is a ‘Constitutional Crisis’.
Lipipa said he will be meeting the supporters committee aiming to bring back sanity at the club.
Bullets chair further confessed the disagreements are ill-timed because at this juncture, as a family they were supposed to be preparing for the new season.
He said trustees are the custodians of the club and in their absence, the team is on ‘auto-pilot’ mode and fears anything can happen.
This gives doubts on whether the club will proceed to hold Executive Committee Elections that are scheduled for 18th March 2017.
According to Article 13 of Bullets Constitution, it is only the board of trustees that has a mandate or responsible to conduct Executive and Supporters Committee Elections.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
