The Bullets have, despite continued optimism, yet to secure sponsorship that would meet their K180 million (about $400 000) travel expenses around the continent. The Bullets are the only Malawian side returning to continental football since 2004.

Earlier, the Bullets chairperson, Kondie Msungama, who has denied that they were closing in on sponsorship and that their hope was on a promise made by league sponsors TNM, told the local press that they would decide on the trip by February 5, 2015.

For the trip to the islands, the Bullets need K30 million (K66 666) and have since opened a special bank account targeting some donations.

Earlier, the Bullets general secretary, Harold Fote, ignored the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda’s demand for $20 000 bank account surety for the club’s participation in the continental league.

FAM is afraid of paying the $20 000 CAF fine in the event of the Bullets’ withdrawal. “On Bullets participation in CAF competition – we are hopeful that Bullets will find a sponsor for their participation.

At this stage withdrawing will mean Bullets paying USD20 000 the same amount we had requested the club to deposit into FAM account as a precaution,” Nyirenda told

BULLETS A TEAM RUN BY IDIOTS OF NO VISION WHY WERE YOU JOINING WITHOUT A STABLE SOURCE OF MONEY? YOU HOPED FOR SYMPATHY IN AN CREATED EMERGENCY. WE ARE DONATING FOR FLOOD VICTIMS NOT YOUR FOOTBALL. CERTAINLY WE WILL SOON WITHDRAW THE PROMISED 12MILLION.

Kodi a FAM ndi boma, zikuoneka kuti nkhani ya Bullets sikukunkhudzani ndipo simunthandizapo. Koma ma gate collection pa Kamuzu Stadium, mudzatengapo 70% and Bullets will share the 30% with security and first aid staff.

Bullets will make it, if they believe they can. Let’s wait and see.
