Malawi ball boy hit by player still in pain

Solomoni Mnyoza, the ball boy who was kicked by a Kamuzu Barracks player Ben Hojan during Big Bullets and Kamuzu Barracks TNM Super League game on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium s still struggling to recover.

The ball boy said he was still in pain but has so far been released from Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital.

Hojani kicked the ball boy in the injury time when his team was trailing 2-1 to Bullets.

In anger, the player who accused the ball boy of match delays rushed to the helpless ball boy before trickling him down to the anger of many spectators who thronged Kamuzu Stadium.

In an exclusive interview with Mpira ku Malawi programme on MIJ FM, one of Solomoni’s relation,  Peterson Mnyozo said his younger brother is failing to eat as his lips are still swollen.

“He is no longer the same young brother because he is having difficulties in eating as his lips are still swollen. Solomoni can’t speak as well and he can’t go to school as he is still in pain,” said Peterson.

Peterson also alleged that the ball boy fainted twice as his back head kissed the ground after being kicked by the player.

The Ndirande township based ball boy is still waiting for justice to prevail, according to Peterson.

“Nobody from the Sulom (Super League of Malawi)  has visited him or render any support apart from Mr Ntanthiko from FAM, who came twice to visit my younger brother,”he said.

Meanwhile, the ball boys have vowed to continue with their strike in Blantyre if nothing will happen to Ben Hojan.
