Malawians have strongly condemned and castigated disgusting behaviour of football fans who were captured urinating against the wall shying away from the state of the art washrooms just a couple of steps away at the new Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe during the match between arch rivals Nyasa Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers in a TNM Super League match on Sunday.
The picture, taken discreetly, went viral on social media and in one post done by Julius Mithi on Facebook, many Malawians showed their disgust and shame at such disgusting behaviour that is tarnishing the image of decent citizenry.
In his comment on the picture post, Yusuf Bhana said: “This absolute nonsense. How do we develop in such manner and the fact that this guys are young men.”
Mavuto Bokosi was also incredulous of such act and bemoaned the tendency of Malawians failing to appreciate good things provided to them for their comfort.
“Eish koma abale sitidzatheka (Geez, we Malawians shall never develop). Can’t people be proud of this structure and take care of it?” he said.
Emily Banda Nangozo went further saying this really is unhygienic because once they relieve themselves, especially men, they proceed to greet others by hand yet they never considered to wash their hands first.
“This is uncalled for....eeeh zamanyazi (shameful). Osachita kaso ndi stadium ikongolelenji basi kutulutsa mopanda manyazi pwaaaaa nkutseka zip kenako happily kupereka moni…anthu achoncho sinsangala kupereka moni wapankono….aarrrrh shame on you who are into this embarrassing and shameful habit….fisi ndi fisi ndithu,” Nangozo said.
Chimwemwe Ngwira alluded to the fact that maybe people should be civic educated about the use of some of the facilities at the state of the art stadium built by the Chinese.
Ngwira made the comment after some people had indicated that some fans were seen trying to open the automatic taps and that others banged the vending machines without putting money in it to retrieve the drinks they wanted.
One person commented that there are electric hand dyers but fans were seen just rubbing their hands against their clothes after washing their hands.
Others questioned where the security by the police was because such an act is tantamount to arrest.
Chimwemwe Ngwira also said people are used to such acts because the urban areas are not provided with public washrooms and even litter bins and thus urinating against walls seems to be the norm.
Chidzukulu ChaNatembo said the stadium authority is to blame because they open few toilets against huge patronage.
“You will understand when you experience the situation some day, ” he said to which Munthali Chimwemwe responded: “Ayi ah (No, No), that is not justifiable”.
Saulos Kachisa said: “Some people are [just] disgusting” while Peter Kaweta-Chavula said: “This is very bad. What is wrong with us Malawians.”
