Big Bullets Council fails to meet

Jim Kalua


Nyasa Big Bullets council failed to meet over the weekend to determine the future of its three directors who are doubling roles.

The council called its three members Stone Mwamadi, parliamentarian Chifundo Makande and Albert Chigoga to step down from one role as they also double as the clubs directors.

However, the trio refused to badge forcing the council to put on hold its planned meeting.

Bullets council general secretary, Jim Kalua, said the meeting did not take place because the trio refused to step down.

“The meeting did not take place because I demanded stepping down of some members from Council which did not take place. We are pushing for an independent body to avoid issues of conflict of interest. We will simply not work with them. In our meetings they will not be invited simple,” he said.

Kalua also said that Bullets director of sales and marketing Noel Lipipa, who is also a parliamentarian, was the only one mandated to serve both the council and directors role.

“This was agreed at the takeover annual general meeting to allow him [Lipipa] to act between the company and council,” he said.

Kalua said it was not witch hunting but they wanted Bullets to follow issues of good corporate governance practice to achieve its mission.

“We will always do our duties responsibly,” he said.

However, Kalua commended Nyasa Manufacturing Company for responding positively to some of the issues which they raised.

“Above all they responded to most of the concerns through their press briefing. We were also against pay cut and they did well by maintaining players’ salary,” he said.

However, one of the directors, Mwamadi, said stepping down was not a solution.

“We are all serving Bullets under specific guidelines. We refer to our job description and terms of reference when discharging different roles,” said Bullets Supporters Director.
