Big Bullets players’ fate this week


Nyasa Big Bullets management is set to meet this week to discuss if a 50 percent pay cut for the team’s players is necessary.

Bullets Chief Administration Officer, Albert Chigoga, said management would hold an operations meeting before this weekend to look at various issues.

“We have several items on the agenda but one of the issue concerns salary cut. As such, I can’t say anything because management is yet to make a decision he said.


Bullets players, through their captain John Lanjesi and vice-captain Chimango Kayira, penned the teams’ management protesting against the proposed 50 percent pay cut.

The players feel that they were being victimised as the impending cut does not reflect the present cost of living standards having lost game bonuses, upkeep and training allowances.

The Peoples Team management is hoping to emulate rivals Be Forward Wanderers who have effected a salary cut after their sponsor, Be Forward Limited of Japan, reduced sponsorship due to loss of business as a result of the pandemic.


Recently, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) warned clubs against imposing salary cuts without prior agreements with the players.

Meanwhile, former Bullets Technical Director, Billy Tewesa, backed players for protesting the proposed pay cut.

“The players are not wrong. I am told they didn’t sign a contract which had clauses to cater for natural disasters; as such, they have to be paid their salary. Let us be honest, people accepted Nyasa Manufacturing Company to take over the team because everyone felt that the players’ welfare would improve,” he said.

Former Bullets Board of Trustees vice-chairman Jim Kaluwa was the first to support the players to stand against the proposed salary cut.
