Former Mighty Wanderers outspoken and often controversial supporters chairman Yona Malunga has taken the rivalry with Bullets to another level when bet a vehicle on Fomboni FC to win in the return leg on February 28.
Malunga offered a bet of a K2 million vehicle for anyone challenging him.
“I am challenging that Bullets will not beat Fomboni. So anyone who thinks they will, I am betting my brother’s K2 million Mercedes benz,” Malunga said.
“This is not a joke. They should come forward and I am ready to leave in the hands of the Police being neutral people so that people should know that I am very serious.”
He said he has decided to take that move to make the game exciting.
“We cannot all be supporting one team. This would make the game boring. We are in a multiparty era which gives us a choice of freedom,” he said.
However Bullets flamboyant support Raphael Nasimba, who was Yona’s father late John Green Malunga his counterpart in football circles condemned his move.
“With his late father, we could differ locally but not when it came to international games. I once accompanied the Wanderers team to Zimbabwe for CAF Champions League and I had to put on put the Nomads colours because they were representing Malawi,” Nasimba said.
“Yona should have learnt from his father. I have not talked to him to avoid being confrontational.”
But Wanderers incumbent Supporters Committee Chairperson Denis Chitsulo distanced the team from Yona’s tantrums saying he was speaking in his personal capacity.
“Wanderers has been and will be behind Bullets in the CAF Champions League because it is representing the Malawi,” Chitsulo said.
“Bullets success will be for all us not just the team.”Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
