Bishop Simama: To pull out sponsorship

Simama sent the warning shot in a brief interview with private owned Zodiak Radio on Friday morning.

He seem to be angered with the way Mzuni F.C were crowned champions in the just ended 2014-15 season.

“I am concerned like anybody else because I don’t like somebody getting points on the table but should be on the field of play” said Simama.

“As a company, we are meeting and as board we might pull out the sponsorship,” warned Bishop Simama.

Mzuni were crowned champions through a board room decision by the NRFA.

The association ordered a replay of a game between Kapolo Stars and Mzuni which they claimed ended prematurely but Kapolo refused to play.

The association however went on to hand Mzuni three points which saw them finish with a point ahead of second placed Chilumba Barracks. Chilumba Barracks however launched a complaint to Football Association of Malawi (FAM) which is yet to act on the matter.

Last soccer season, the league was also involved in a controversy between champions Champions Karonga United and the same Mzuni FC.

Bishop Abraham Simama sponsors the league to the tune of 3 million Kwacha.

Dedza Young Soccer and Sure stream Academy are the other new entrants into the top flight TNM Super league from Central region and Southern region respectively.

Guyz, lets call a spade by its name. The NRFL administrators’ judgment was not fair. Chilumba Barracks deserves promotion here. If I were Simama I would do the same. Let these administrators be enlightened about FIFA rules and regulations. Shame on you.

uku ndiye timati kunyelere mbale modyelamo. Akachita pull out, where are you going to find another sponsor who can release 3mk. Instead of amicably sort out the mess you have created through arrogancy, you castigate the sponsor…Stupid all of you call urselfs adminstrators.

Inu a Chakuda chandiluma kumaso, it is clear that either you are not a football lover or you are not a Malawian at all. Otherwise I don’t see why else you don’t care if a league sponsor pulls out. If you are a football follower, are you not aware of the efforts that government and football administrators are making to secure sponsorship at various levels of the game? And you say you don’t care if a sponsor pulls out? If you don’t follow football issues, don’t comment. Leave that to people who love and follow football. Komano zoona zake ndi… Read more »

Amene mukunyoza simama muli mbuuu. Simama is a billionaire but he needs sanity. The game was played in full 90 mins . No need for replay. Munthu akuthandiza mukumunyozanso. Simama has got business interests jn Kenya ,Tanzania and Zimbabwe not forgetting Zambia. He is contemplating of opening in Mozambique. He is a role model.
