Wanderers donate to Bullets: ‘A friend indeed’

Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on Monday buried the bitter rivalry with Big Bullets when they donated K200,000  (US$444) to Malawi champions to help them for their travel bill to Sudan for CAF champions league encounter with Al Hilal.

“We decided to contribute to Bullets trip to Sudan realising that they are representing the nation and carrying the Malawi flag,” said Wanderers chairman George Chamangwana when he presented the cheque to Bullets chair Kondi Msungama.

The presentation took place at Wanderers club house, Lali Lubani Road in Blantyre

Chamangwana said the money is part of the income they generated from their SMS promotion which they are currently running.

Msungama said the Bullets club was “grateful” to Mighty Wanderers for their kind gesture and that they have been “good friends in need and indeed they are friends”

“It sounds strange, but the rivalry is on the domestic scene. Wanderers are our brothers and we are grateful for their gesture. It might be looked at as something on the lower side, but to us it will help a lot and we hope others will emulate this gesture,” said Msungama

He then urged other well wishers to emulate the Nomads gesture by helping the team.

However, there were some mummering from Wanderers supporters to Bullets that they “should not cashgate” their donation.

The Nomads’ general secretary Mike Butao said: “This gesture is a confirmation that despite our domestic rivalry, we wish them well, it is the least we could have done, but we hope it will make a difference.

“The donation is from our SMS promotion, we know it is too little, but it’s more of a way of wishing them well and that through this gesture, others will also come forward.”

The People’s Team will face Al Hilal on Sunday in Omdurman.

82 If you do not have facts is better keep quite.The time Bullets detached from Wanderers in 1966/7 the team was not called Limbe Leaf Wanderers.Sponsorship from Limbe Leaf came in late 1970s when Wanderers was dumped by Stansfield Motors who was calling the team Yamaha Wanderers and by this time Wanderers was already playing second fiddle to Bullets which was then called Bata Bullets.Make proper research before you comment because it bores us who were there and know the story because the new generation may take what you are saying as gospel truth.
