Mighty Be Forward Wanderers and US based Casual Sports Wear firm Nsejjere are expected to review their original contractual agreement and resume partnership.
Previously Wanderers terminated the contact as they were unhappy with some of the conditions the two parties signed some years ago.
This prompted the US Firm to take the matter to the High Court where Wanderers was ordered to pay damages amounting to K400 million.
However, Wanderers have backtracked on its decision following the talks that were held between the club and Nsejjere Chairperson Isaac Nsejjere recently.
This means that Nsejjere will next season continue providing merchandize to Wanderers.
Wanderers General Secretary Mike Butao confirmed the development.
“We had fruitful talks and we have agreed to continue with the business pact. As a club, we will honour the contract we signed. In fact, it is us who asked for an audience with Nsejjere management through Tiya Somba Banda. We are glad that Nsejjere will not enforce the court ruling that could have put us in a bad position” Butao is quoted by the Nation Newspaper dated 23rd December, 2014.
Butao revealed that they told Nsejjere point blank that the Nomads were unhappy with the inclusion of a third party (Kings Marketing) which was selling the products on behalf of the club.
According to Butao, Nsejjere were also reminded to improve the quality of the products supplied as well as reducing the contractual period with the possibility of renewing in the future.
“Another issue was on quality and also length of the contract. As a club, we cannot be tied to a contract for over 10 years. Those are the issues that will be changed as we enter into a new agreement” said Butao.
On his part, Nsejjere said his Firm decided not to enforce the court ruining but rather negotiate with the Nomads to avoid ruining the club which has also just secured sponsorship from Japan used car exporting company Be Forward.
“It is true that we won the case against Wanderers and if we enforce the court ruling, we will destroy Wanderers and even their K70 Million sponsorship Be forward will be ruined since we have the right to seize every asset owned by the club. My coming to Malawi was to reach out a deal with Wanderers and ensure that they honour the contract” said Nsejjere.
He further commended Wanderers for coming back to senses and sees the contract through.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
