Nyasa Big Bullets FC Technical Director Billy Tewesa has come under heavy criticism for uttering words that some soccer pundits believe are irresponsible and can bring the game of football into disrepute.
Tewesa threatened to deal with and treat Karonga United in an unspecified manner claiming the TNM Super League rookies treated them in a bad manner and harassed them.
He made the remarks after his side’s 0-1 defeat to Karonga United in a league match over the weekend.
Reacting to the development, one of local soccer commentator Owen Chomanika, who also owns Chikwawa United, faulted Tewesa and described his remarks as ‘irresponsible’ which are not supposed to come out from an official.
Chomanika went on to call upon the Football Association of Malawi (Fam) and Super League of Malawi (Sulom) to seriously come up with control measures to such behaviour including issuing fines and suspension as other countries do to ensure players and officials are always disciplined.
“He is supposed to be disciplined. As Technical Director he is supposed to be commenting on technical point of view,” said Chomanika.
He said soccer governing bodies need to enforce all the laws of the game of football and stop discharging their duties as supporters.
The Chikwawa United owner has also asked Sulom and FAM to address and tackle issues of Juju beliefs which lead to teams jumping fences as well as clubs refusing to use dressing rooms whenever they are playing away.
Meanwhile, Sulom has said it will take action on the Bullets club following violence perpetrated by the supporters after their shocking defeat to Karonga.
Bullets supporters pelted stones after the game forcing police to fire tear gas.
“Those in the wrong will be punished,” warned Sulom president Innocent Botomani.
Hygiene Mwandepeka’s 77th minute goal stunned Bullets as Karonga registered the first win in the league campaign, moving from position 16 to 14 on the table.
