Nyasa Big Bullets Board of Trustees and the Supporters Committee will meet this Saturday to decide whether or not to hold the club’s Executive Committee elections.
The team’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at Gymkhana Club in Zomba earlier this month, agreed to hold the elections.
The AGM, which was held after Stone Mwamadi was re-elected as the Supporters Committee Chairperson, dissolved the Executive Committee ahead of its elections.
However, the People’s Team trustees were divided on whether to hold the elections or not.
Last week, one of the trustees Malinda Chinyama said he was against holding the elections, preferring hired secretariat staff to speed up the club’s commercialisation.
Other trustees Jim Kalua and Gregory Madeya said the issue about the elections was never agreed upon at the AGM.
In the latest development, the trustees’ Secretary Kalua said they would meet on Saturday to come up with one stand.
“It is not like we are going there to determine whether to have the polls or not but to look at some of the mistakes that were made so that we should not face similar problems in future. The meeting will also emphasise on the team’s preparations for the forthcoming season,” he explained.
“A lot has been said about the Executive Committee polls, but this should not worry the Bullets family because our team is running. Despite dissolving the Executive Committee, we still have the Chairman, Noel Lipipa, working alongside the board of trustees. There is also an office for an administrator that is working so there is no need to panic. Let us wait for the outcome of the meeting.”
Mwamadi said his committee was hopeful that the meeting would be fruitful.
“Our worry was on the reports that our parents were divided over the polls. As I indicated earlier, the supporters want elections for the executive and I will make sure that whatever will be agreed on Saturday should be in line with the wish of the supporters,” he said.
Bullets regrouped last week ahead of the new season.
