Be Forward Wanderers ride the bus


The conclusion of the season turned from bad to worse for Nyasa Big Bullets on Sunday.

Last week, Bullets were humiliated by a 3-0 loss to Be Forward Wanderers. On Saturday, Bullets’ slippery TNM Super League championship dream vanished.

A 2-1 loss to Wanderers at Bingu National Stadium, Lilongwe yesterday just summed up it all in the red side of town.


Losing to a rival is part of the game, but doing so twice inside seven days, scoring just once and letting in five goals is a defending and scoring disaster. Bullets are a big team.

Bullets slip quietly into the off-season so traumatised after merely escorting their rivals to Lilogwe to claim the bus prize of the Luso TV Bus Ipite Bonanza. Wanderers won 5-1 on aggregate over two legs.

Wanderers have finally found a way of beating Bullets, thanks to the People’s Team’s former attacker, Jafali Chande’s brilliance.


Chande scored twice yesterday to make it four goals over two legs, Collen Nkhulambe netted Bullets’ consolation yesterday.

Chande, who claimed a brace in the first leg at Kamuzu Stadium on December 26, became the first scorer at the new stadium in Lilongwe.

On a personal level, he got his revenge after Bullets had him arrested for committing the sin of switching allegiance from red to blue.

For Bullets, it was a typical case of another loss, another embarrassment and another dream gone.

Bullets’ Assistant Coach Elia Kananji admitted that they were second best to Wanderers in the bonanza.

“We were disturbed by two quick goals. Our plan was to score two early goals but Wanderers had a similar plan, anyway we have to accept it,” Kananji said in a post-match interview.
