Nyasa Big Bullets have appointed seasoned journalist Archibald Kasakura as the interim supporters committee general secretary (GS), replacing Mabvuto Chibambo who stepped down in October.

Bullets made the appointment public through a statement released on Tuesday.

Kasakura worked for Times Group and Nation Publications Limited for a combined 10 years.

Bullets Chief Administrator Albert Chigoga said Kasakura’s appointment would help in strengthening their commercialisation drive.

“We are currently implementing our commercialisation drive by involving supporters in the promotion of the Bullets brand. Kasakura is one supporter who can make a big difference in this initiative.

“We have seen him following the team wherever it is playing just to offer support. We have known him as a staunch Bullets supporter and he is the kind of person we wanted for this position,” Chigoga said.

He said Kasakura’s networks, skills and competencies would be pivotal in the enhancement of supporters’ role in promoting the Bullets brand.

“We wholeheartedly welcome Mr. Kasakura to this great club. We are hoping to benefit a lot from his marketing ideas to take the club to greater heights,” Chigoga said.

Kasakura said his first task at the club was brand awareness and supporters registration.

“I have not come to change the way things are done at Bullets. My mission is to complement the club’s agenda which my colleagues have been working on all these years.

“I will strive to enhance registration of supporters and visibility of the club. This calls for unity if we are to achieve our goals. We need to paddle in the same direction if we are to succeed in our endeavours,” Kasakura said.

Bullets supporters’ director Stone Mwamadi congratulated Kasakura on his appointment.

“My appeal to the Bullets family is that we should all support Kasakura the way we did with Chibambo. My gratitude goes to Chibambo for helping the team and also being part of the ownership transfer process of the club to Nyasa Manufacturing Company.

“Chibambo did a good job and we will remember him for the right reasons. Today we have Kasakura, who is equally qualified, having worked for some of the country’s top media houses. He is a graduate whose expertise will greatly help the team,” Mwamadi said.

Kasakura has been engaged on a six-month agreement and will be officially unveiled to Central and Northern region supporters on Saturday.

The new GS is also expected to be instrumental in Bullets’ opening of offices in all districts across the country.

The club has embarked on the initiative to reach out to supporters based in rural areas.
