Moyale players attack photojournalist after loss to Bullets: Malawi TNM Super League

Moyale players Sunday pounced on Blantyre Newspaper Limited (BNL) photojournalist, Bonex Julius for taking pictures of one of their team-mates, Robert Simkonda just after the soldiers’ game against Big Bullets at Kamuzu stadium.

The Mzuzu-based soldiers failed to collect three points from the Sunday’s game despite pitching in impressive display and taking a lead twice before submitting to a 3-2 defeat.

Bonex wanted to take pictures of Simkonda-one of the Moyale scorers-soon after the game as was pre- agreed with the player.

However, his flashing-camera did not please some of the dejected players, who never hesitated but to vent their anger-for losing the game which they nearly won-on him before some police officers and journalists came to his rescue.

The soldiers wondered why Bonex was taking pictures of Simkonda unknowing a photo-shoot was arranged days ago with the player yet to be featured in one of the media giant’s titles.

Earlier on, one of the Moyale officials was ordered out of the stadium for rebuking the referee.

The soldiers who tormented Blantyre United with a 5-1 slap, a day earlier, lost to Bullets in a game they wholly controlled with a classical display and two splendid goals lead.

James Chilapondwa scored from penalty spot 17 minutes in the second half to cancel 2-1 lead before Divason Mlozi made it 3-2 to seal Bullets’ second position on the Log table with 15 points.

The defeat means Moyale will now be on position 6 with 9 points from seven games.
