Nomads ‘sorry’ to SDA Church: ‘Club cannot control attire of  supporters’

Be Forward Wanderers FC has apologised to the Seventh Day Adventist Church which condemned the use of ‘their’ church colours and uniform at football matches as part of supporters’ costume material.

Freedom of dressing: Nomads fan

Director of the Women Ministry in SDA, , Emily Banda Egolet,   complained against a display made by Wanderers supporter who was clad in the attire similar to that of the organization at a football match between Wanderers and Azam Tigers on Saturday, at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

The ‘Dorcas Women’ lamented the use of ‘their’ colours and uniform as football costume, calling it disturbing, saying it demeans their faith considering that it was done on a Saturday which is regarded as a holy Sabbath for the Seventh Day Adventist Church.

“Although some SDA members patronize football games on the Sabbath, they do not do so clad in their church uniforms because they know that the uniform has a purpose and has to be respected as such,” complained Egolet.

Wanderers Secretary General, Mike Butao, said the team is sorry to the church “although we cannot control what our supporters wear at football matches.”

It has been a trend at football matches that supporters wear different costumes of different colours to boost morale for their respective teams but this extreme was a first of its kind and has received mixed reactions from the masses.

Come on guys, i dont know why people are busy cursing him, can we all use our reasoning and give facts here, tell us how that act is an insult to SDA, and how it is a sin before God. A piece of cloth do not define your Spirituality, its just a religion attire, uniform, just for identification… you will never go to heaven because you use that ku church, neither will that guy go to hell coz anavala ichocho ku mpira.. how that will happen is up to God and iweyo uzimu wako, not the cloth your church uses..… Read more »

Even in the times Moses, and particularly in Egypt especially in the wilderness, the people of Israel
could speak badly enough against him instead of looking at (NJOKA YA NKUWA) which was their salvation.
They instantly received death penalty as punishment by being bitten. GOD forgive us all because we don’t
know what we are talking about.I personally would suggest to disassociate ourselves from being a football fun putting on Christian wear and being Christian dressed in football. In the times of ignorance, GOD had let it
go(analekelera). Don’t thick is not there. He watches everything for his eyes are sleepless.

I think mai Banda you are emotionally charged. You have brought an issue which is irrevelant. There is no proof about this attire to attribute to your church. You should get worried with women swapping at your church than this issue. Talk of real issues chigogolo a za mai a seven and mowa ku central church kwanuko. Good at earthly things.
