Mtambo asks for peaceful dialogue with BB, Nomads

Human Rights Defenders Coalition (HRDC) chairperson Timothy Mtambo has suggested that there is need for peaceful talks with supporters for Mighty Be Forward Wanderers and Nyasa Big Bullets, who have been angered by the decision to lobby Members of Parliament against allocating funds to build stadia for the two teams.

Bullets and Wanderers supporters gave Mtambo a 72-hour ultimatum to withdraw his statement, failing which they will hold vigils at HRDC offices.

At a press briefing the supporters from the two teams made at the Kamuzu Stadium on Monday, the fans are demanding that HRDC should withdraw their plans and also to apologise within 72 hours or else they shall hold vigils at their offices in Lilongwe.

But Mtambo has asked the supporters if they could meet in order to debate on the issue rather than taking the fight to the media.

He also said that for the moment he cannot apologise since he has done nothing wrong and would only do so if they peacefully meet in high he should be appraised where he has stepped off the mark.

“I follow football. Actually, I am a Wanderers supporter, but what I am saying is that the decision by President [Peter] Mutharika to construct stadia for the two teams, which are private entities, will have far-reaching repercussions because it is the future generations that will suffer in repaying the loans,” Mtambo was quoted as having said by Zodiak Broadcasting Station (ZBS) on Tuesday.

Mtambo insists that the money being allocated towards the projects could be used prudently to build schools, buy medical supplies and education needs that have been neglected.

Minister of Finance and Economic Development Joseph Mwanamvekha allocated K1.6 billion towards the Bullets and Wanderers stadium projects when he presented the 2019/20 National Budget on Monday.

Silver and Civo are not private clubs you. Can you stop for a while and ask yourself if government is justified to give hundreds of millions to NMC for example? by the way didn’t NMC promise to construct a stadium for Bullets? Now, what justifies government’s taking over a private company’s project? Kukhala cadet sindiye kuti akulandani brains, mutha kumaganizabe mwa umunthu

Please we have advised that no taxpayers money should be used for stadiums and there is no negotiations on this. Look here BB and Wonders fans if all those monies go to the football grounds and hospital no medicines for supporting your injury at the ground what are you going to do? Sometimes lets us reason accordingly and never be taken up with politicians. One important factor is that BB and Wonders are private entities and there is no way one can take Government money and construct grounds it is completely and this is why we encourage many clubs to… Read more »

Very strange to hear Mtambo asking for a peaceful dialogue for fans to hear his side of the story when he himself does not offer such opportunity to his ‘victims’. We always hear hear him issue threats and ultimatums and swear that “issue not negotiable”, what has happened this time? He thinks he is/they are the only group that must be heard when there are disagreements/conflicts or because he thinks he is always right?
