TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets have unveiled their new signing Muhamad Sulumba from Blantyre United after signing a three-year contract, frustrating Mighty Be Forward Wanderers who wanted to sign him for permanent after a successful loan stint last season.
Bullets chairman Samuel Chilunga hailed Sulumba “one of the top strikers in Malawi.”
Chilunga was delighted that the striker had agreed to join the ranks at the Peoples Team after making a dramatic U-turn over his move to Lali Lubani Road – the home of Wanderers.
Sulumba said he was attracted by the character of Bullets and their reputation for never giving up, even claiming they were going to defend the Super League title for the third year.
“What I like the most about Bullets is the character. It’s a new challenge for me. Excited to be at my new home Bullets,” said Sulumba.
According to Chilunga the People’s Team resumed training on Tuesday at Kamuzu Stadium under the guidance of Mabvuto Lungu and Lloyd Nkhwazi.
Lungu will not going to guide the team to the title defence because who does not hold a CAF B license which the Football Association of Malawi (FAM)—under the Club Licensing System (CLS)—is enforcing as a minimum requirement for the top-flight league coaches.
Bullets former centre back George Nyirenda has also resumed training with the club after terminating his contract with top Zimbabwean side Caps United.
The club has also two realists from Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) Premier League side Ndirande Icons.
