Sulom to conduct fresh hearing on Wanderers, Mzuni abandoned match

Super League of Malawi (Sulom) Disciplinary Committee is expected to conduct fresh hearing of the case of the abandoned match between Mighty Be Forward Wanderers and Mzuni FC.

Nomads seeking justice

The match was abandoned after Mzuni refused to play over security concerns following the fracas that happened before the team entered the stadium on match day.

The disciplinary committee conducted investigation and came up with a verdict that ruled that the game be replayed at a later date to be set by Sulom.

It further warned and banned Wanderers Captain Josephy Kamwendo and Goalkeeper Trainer Vales Kamzere.

But accordimg to a latest decision by the Sulom Appeals Committee released on Thursday, there will be fresh hearing of the case.

“The Appeals Committee is of the firm view that in respect of incidences at Balaka stadium on 4th November, 2017, justice can only be attained if parties are heard by a Disciplinary Committee that conducts the hearing in strict
compliance with Article 36 of the Constitution,” reads part of the statement.

In disposing of this matter, the Appeals Committee, therefore, orders that the verdict of the Disciplinary Committee made on 10th November, 2017 in respect of the incidences at Balaka Stadium on 4th November 2017 during the planned match between Be Forward Wanders Football Club and Mzuni Football Club is hereby set aside to accord Be Forward Wanderers and Mzuni FC the 72 Hours’ notice requirement as well as the charges as provided for in Article 36 of the SULOM Constitution.

The Disciplinary Committee of SULOM will also conduct a hearing in respect of the incidences at Balaka Stadium on 4th November 2017 and shall make such findings and orders as the justice of the case shall demand.

There will also be a new set of committee members to handle the case.

“To preserve the integrity of the proceedings, the Disciplinary Committee that will sit to conduct the fresh hearing shall be made of members other than those who sat on the 7th of November, 2017,” the statement reads.

Meanwhile, to avoid similar incidents that happened at Balaka Stadium: “The Committee also recommends that security personnel should be trained in public disorder management and crowd control and management to avoid a repeat of this incident; and the Committee urges football authorities to seek audience with the Malawi Police Service over the Balaka incident as a matter of urgency”.

The truth of the matter is that Mzuni didn’t play under protest as other teams do. The question is why Mzuni? Why should it be so special with Mzuni not to lose points when precedence is already there from other teams whether is super league or not that have lost points for not fulfilling fixture to similar violence reasons? Sulom should apply rules of the game fairly. This is a straight forward issue. Award three points to Be Forward Wanderers if justice will be done. Despite that clubs are quite, they are following this with keen interest if Sulom abandon… Read more »

We are not fools. I see this whole business fishy. Mark my words Noma will have 3 points in their bag. Why have they said earlier ruling be out aside? There is a lot you can pick from this directive

Super League of Malawi is not serious. Let the ruling be true reflection of what had transpired at Balaka Stadium. Let the tangible evidences be provided not just hearsay or just assumptions or hatred or envy be on the front. Others team have faced the similar incidents but they did not abandon the match.eg With eveidence, Bullets were beaten at Dwangwa but they played the game and Silver faced the same situations but what is so special with Mzuni (notorious )being the team that does violence and hooliganism .
Please let not kill football in Malawi.

This was a straight forward case.Sulom knows if goofed. Mzuni would have played under protest. Verbal insults happen at every match. Give wanderers the points.

Comrade you are 100 plus right. Our memories are still fresh on what happened to Bullets in Dwangwa but the game proceeded! Roy Kean and Viera would shower insults Right before the game and in the Corridors , but the games were played. That’s the beauty of the game. It is a game of emotions ! Let the Justice of the game be done ! Wanders should be awarded the points.!
I miss Jemba Jemba on MIJ Mpira ku Malawi – He is straight forward in his talk! Those that know him ask him to come into the paly!!!!
