Carlsberg Cup final between Malawi`s most popular and successful clubs Bullets FC and their archrivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers will live up to be the most explosive encounter in recent times as Malawi Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima will be among the high profile guests.
Press Officer for the Vice President Pilirani phiri confirmed the development that Dr Chilima, who once was behind the pomp of Carlsberg Cup promotion while working at the company, will attend the final.
Carlsberg Malawi Breweries Limited Senior brands manager alcoholic Twikale Chirwa applauded the Vice President`s decision to spare his time and watch the grand final.
“We are humbled to note that the Vice President will grace the Carlsberg Cup final on Saturday. This will add pomp and hype to the already electric atmosphere,” Chirwa said.
Chilima once worked at Carlsberg Malawi before moving to Airtel Malawi where he rose through ranks to become the first Malawian Managing Director at a tender age of mid the 30s.
