Big Bullets adamant on stadium

Nyasa Big Bullets board of directors has refused to bow down to pressure and insists the Peoples Team owners- Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC)-will not build another stadium.

Instead the directors are hoping that the Tonse Alliance government will give the stadium, which is under construction, to Bullets once construction is over in Zingwangwa Township, Blantyre.

Bullets’ Chief Executive Officer Escort Chinula said there was no need to build another stadium when government committed to continue constructing a new stadium.

“We have made it clear that we will not construct another stadium. We have confidence that this stadium will belong to us. It will be a total lie to tell our supporters that Nyasa will construct another stadium,” he said.

Chinula’s remarks follows concerns from Bullets supporters’ committee general secretary Mabvuto Chibambo who asked NMC to honour the contents of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) by constructing a stadium.

Chibambo said it would be difficult for Bullets to own the stadium as the Minister of Sports Ulemu Msungama did not commit on ownership status.

“What we want is our stadium to avoid issues like losing 25 percent of the gate collections. We are simply asking the company to fulfil what was listed in the takeover MoU,” he said.

NMC was supposed to construct a stadium, set three regional club houses and buy a bus. The first bus which the company bought broke down but the team breathed a sigh of relief when former state president Peter Mutharika used government’s resources to buy Bullets and rivals Be Forward Wanderers a bus each.
