The circus surrounding transfers involving Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers’ players took another twist when the People’s Team signed midfielder, Kondwani Kumwenda, who was reportedly off-loaded by the Nomads. Kumwenda joins Bullets on a three-year-deal.

“I have indeed signed for Bullets as a free agent. They were the only team that showed interest to sign me after I was released by Wanderers. I am happy to have moved to Bullets,” he said on Thursday.

The former Azam Tigers and Blantyre United midfielder also revealed that he had signed another deal with Bullets Technical Director, Billy Tewesa, to manage him.

“We are from the same township in Ndirande and I know his abilities. He is well-connected and he can help me advance my career,” he said.

Tewesa said Kumwenda would provide options in Bullets’ midfield.

“We are happy to secure his services for free,” he said.

Ironically, Kumwenda was a subject of a heated argument, which nearly forced Wanderers General Secretary, Mike Butao, to resign following an outburst with the Nomads’ Supporters Chairperson, Yamikani Kaliyapa.

Kaliyapa led a section of Wanderers supporters to confront Butao over the release of Kumwenda, who was deemed a surplus to requirements by the technical panel before the transfer deadline.

Butao yesterday refused to comment on whether the Nomads had released Kumwenda.

This year’s transfer window has seen Bullets and Wanderers engaging in verbal war following movement of players.

Bullets set the ball rolling when they convinced striker Muhammad Sulumba to snub a permanent deal with Wanderers and sign for the People’s Team.

Wanderers hit back by signing midfielder-cum-striker, Jafali Chande, but the deal is far from being sealed following contractual disputes.

Bullets claim that Chande is still contracted to them until next August, while the player insists that his contract with Bullets expired in February.
