The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has charged champions Big Bullets with player tapping after the People’s Team unlawfully used Mzuni FC striker Niyikiza Aimable in the Inter City Charity Trophy during the weekend of 7th and 8th August.
A letter from Sulom dated August 19 gave Bullets 72 hours to respond to the charge.
“Reference is made to the complaint we received from Mzuni FC on your actions upon the intent to transfer of Niyikiza Aimable to Big Bullets football club. It is been alleged that the player has been training with Big Bullets without the permission of Mzuni FC up to the extent that you used the player during, the weekend of 7th and 8th August,” the letter signed by Sulom acting CEO Tiya Somba Banda reads in part.
Sulom reminded Bullets that their action is contrary to Article 13.1.4 Super League of Malawi Constitution as read with Article 4.1 of the Football Association of Malawi Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.
The top flight league body have also charged the player for training with Bullets without the permission of his club and playing for the Bullets at the Inter City Charity Trophy.
Bullets and the player had not yet responded to the charge.
But Bullets deputy general secretary Kelvin Moyo earlier said the player in mention was a free agent after he had no contract with Mzuni FC.
Moyo also said the player resigned from Mzuni FC.
On the pitch, Bullets continue to delight and maintain unbeaten run in all competitions; off it they are controversial.
