Masters Security players on strike over game bonuses  

Trouble is brewing at Masters Security FC  following players demand for their game bonuses close to  K1 million with an ultimatum of seven days to their management or face unspecified action.

One senior player, who opted not to have his name disclosed,  told Nyasa Times  each player is being owed K97,500.

“We have stopped training unless they settle our game bonuses. Imagine the club owes us game bonuses for four games,” said the player.

He also said it was unfortunate that they only received their salary for one month only.

“This is not football  and we feel enough is enough. We have agreed to stop training unless they give us our money. How are we going to survive without money. We have responsibilities in looking after our families, paying bills,” he said.

Nyasa Times understands that the angry and frustrated players summoned the club’s management to a meeting a few weeks ago on the same issue where  they expressed dissatisfaction on their welfare.

“I thought they said we have sponsors. Where are they if the club cannot give us our game bonuses and salary. Things are not rosy here and if the club will fail to give us our  money,  we will take an action,” said the player.

Masters Security Services FC General Secretary, Zacharia Nyirenda, was quoted in the press in April saying their team is  not struggling to take care of their players.

“If people are saying we are not paying players, which salaries are they talking about? We have just signed these players and this will be the first month to give them their salaries, so can we pay the players before signing them?” Nyirenda  was quoted in the Daily Times.

The Chipiku Premier Division champions announced a whooping budget of K120 million for this season, sending a message that they mean serious business.

The Lilongwe side was the busiest during the transfer period after signing 22 players such as Robin Ngalande, Bester Phiri, Eneya Banda, Luka Milanzi and Peter Nselema.

If this story is true then pride is not good and God teach us to be humble. Ya is football but this team came in too pompous to the extend of claiming to buy Macopollo bus meaning they have a lot of money and now over sudden, there is no money or delaying paying players. If it is done deliberately your torturing souls, but if it is due to financial problems go and apologize to the players for giving them hope false that your very rich team you will be paying them in time and tell them the truth to… Read more »
