Nomads plan demo, won’t play rematch

Mighty Wanderers supporters led by their flamboyant chief supporter Yona ‘Green’ Malunga and the entire executive committee have resolved to take another step in their disagreement with  Super League of Malawi  (Sulom) decision of banning them for five months without being involved in any football activities.

The supporters have agreed to march to Sanjika Palace, Reserve Bank of Malawi and Football Association of Malawi (FAM) offices.

Wanderers have also agreed not to honour the replay match against Silver Strikers as ordered by Sulom Disciplinary Committee’s ruling that the match should be replayed by Saturday, without spectators

During a meeting involving the team’s executive committee members and supporters at their clubhouse in Chichiri, Blantyre the Nomads agreed to march to Sanjika Palace to submit a petition to the Head of State Joyce Banda for her intervention on the matter.nomads placards

““We are marching to Sanjika because we are bona fide citizens of the land to seek government intervention to ensure that this ban is reversed,” said the club’s legal adviser David Kanyenda, who doubles as general secretary.

Despite that, the Nomads have also agreed to write another petition to Football Association of Malawi which will also be presented through a march.

The Lali-Lubani Road boys have also agreed to appeal Sulom’s ruling.

Kanyenda said they were surprised that the Police managed to arrest the two Silver Strikers supporters who insitigated the violence yet in the verdict Sulom have punished Wanderers.

Kanyenda also called on Reserve Bank of Malawi to “stop sponsoring Silver” saying they are abusing taxpayers’ resources “to sponsor violence as well as extra judicial killings.”

Wanderers top fan Yona Malunga said they will not bow down to Sulom’s verdict and vowed that they will fight on until justice is served leniently.

“We cannot allow a few individuals to destroy our team because what we know is that our supporters behaved during the match. We have agreed to march to Sanjika to seek the President intervention on the matter,” said Malunga.

Meanwhile, Nomads fans are asked to meet at Wanderers Club by 9am on Saturday.
