In a later dated 8th March, 2015 addressed to Silver Strikers and copied to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) and Wanderers, Sulom revealed that it has received a complaint from Wanderers that their player Chitedze is training with Silver Strikers and that he was even featured in an international friendly match against Zimbabwean side Caps United which the Bankers lost 2-0.

“We have received complaints from Be Forward Wanderers that one Timothy Chitedze is training with your club (Silver Strikers) without the consent of his club Be Forward Wanderers,” reads the statement signed by Sulom Treasurer Tiya Somba Banda and made available to Nyasa Times.

“It has been established that the player in question, Timothy Chitedze is indeed training with your club and he even played for Silver Strikers in the international friendly match with CAPS United on 1st March, 2015 at Silver Stadium of which we have evidence on the same from your officials interviews on radio and the official match Repor.

“Note that your actions is in breach of the player transfer rules and contravenes the Football Association of Malawi regulations Article 9.10 of the Status and Transfer of Players” adds the statement.

Meanwhile, Sulom has given Silver Strikers 48 hours from the date of which the letter was signed to respond to the charges.

Efforts to talk to Silver officials on whether they have received the letter from Sulom proved futile as we went online.

Chitedze was expelled from Nomads last season but the decision was reversed following pressure and protest from Nomads supporters who described Chitedze as one of the backbones of Wanderers.

Neba bwanji zinazi kumacitamanyazi ndikuzilesa musanacite .mukufunano kuti munthuyo azingokhala? Mesa munathanaee ?anzanu atola mumusie naenso ali ndimavut


The player was expelled NOT suspended nde palinso nkhani pamenepa. izi ziri ngati kumupanga divorce mkazi then ena nkumukukwatira then nkuyamba kubwebwetuka


nomads management fired/dumped the player and he moved on with life. nomads fans/ customers cried foul and demanded the player back. who is running the club?this is like a company fires a salesman it does not need and customers complain for they got used to him. whose reason will hold! wanderers go to hell,you are now scared of the coming season and want to cause problems.if sulom and fam/walter will entertain this nonsense, then my longtime fears that you favour wanderers and hate silver will be justified and by many.fotseki.


He was fired at Wanderers
Now training with silver. Now wanderers say he is our player. Let’s say u get fired from yo job Eg national Bank what’s wrong looking for a job at standard bank. Players are human beings let’s treat them as such

George Zibophe

Him(Chitedze) still remains MBW player as long as no team showed interest of buying the player by guidance of the laws. Alipire nkhuku yosowa nthenga mkhosi. That’s breaking or breaching the law deliberately.

Titus German

The player was unceremoniously dismissed from Nomads now what else do they want? Wake up Sulom $ consider players interest before being taken for a ride

Silver umbuli amafuna kumaba ma player awa,,shupit,,Bullets 4 ever
