By Mphatso Malidadi:

Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers have requested for an audience with State President Peter Mutharika, as they seek more support from the government.

The teams made the call when Mutharika, through Youth, Sports and Culture Minister Francis Phiso, fulfilled the K10 million pledge he made to Bullets and Wanderers when they graced Independence Day Celebrations game at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on July 6.

Phiso gave Wanderers and Bullets K5 million each from the President after starring in the match.

“The President has honoured his pledge by giving both teams cash in appreciation of the Independence Day match appearance,” he said.

Both teams also received K4 million appearance fee each from the government.

Phiso also stated that the government would construct stadiums for Bullets and Wanderers once Parliament passes the National Budget in September 2019.

“We are currently running on a provisional budget but, once we pass the main one, we will start constructing the stadiums which we promised the teams,” he said.

In reaction, Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, while thanking Mutharika for the donation, said the club had huge debts to service following their participation in Caf Champions League in 2017.

“We have a K60 million debt following our participation in Caf and it is our wish if the President and the government intervened,” he said.

Bullets Chief Administration Officer, Albert Chigoga, said they needed support as they would be competing in Caf Champions League for the second successive year.

“We have a huge wage-bill and we would like to request the state President to support us,” he said.
