Bullets shoot up

Cops detain Wanderers


TNM Super League defending champions, Nyasa Big Bullets moved to the top of the table after sweating to overcome stubborn Mzuni 3-2 at Kamuzu Stadium Sunday.

Bullets’ cause was helped after rivals Be Forward Wanderers suffered a 2-0 defeat to Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Stadium.

It was a dramatic afternoon which kept fans in suspense as both matches were being played.


At Kamuzu Stadium, Bullets were leading comfortably through a Hassan Kajoke first half brace.

However, Mzuni had other ideas in the second half when Steve Madimba and Taniel Mhango cancelled out Kajoke’s brace.

Late on, Bullets survived the scare as Chimwemwe Idana scored the winner.


Bullets Coach, Kallitso Pasuwa, who made five changes to the team that defeated Karonga United on Saturday, was unpleased with his charges.

“We are able to create several chances but unable to turn them into goals. Another worrying thing is that we keep on letting in goals after scoring,” he said.

Mzuni Coach, Gilbert Chirwa, said his charges were affected by some controversial decisions.

“I think after coming back into the game, we lost our plot due to the protest which took some time and affected our rhythm,” he said.

Meanwhile, Wanderers title aspirations suffered setback after going down 2-0 to Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Stadium.

Schumacher Kuwali and Foster Bitoni scored on either side of the half to complete a double over Wanderers this season after winning the first leg 3-1 at Kamuzu Stadium.

Wanderers Head Coach, Bob Mpinganjira, said they were still in title contention.

“We didn’t play our usual game. When we get back home we will rectify our mistakes,” he said.

Eagles Coach, De Klerk Msakakuona, said it was a deserved victory as his troops followed instructions.

Bullets top the table with 49 points from 23 games whereas Wanderers are second with 48 points from the same number of games.

Eagles lie third with 44 points from 24 games.

As the title gets hot and stiffer, Bullets will face Silver Strikers, Civil Sporting Club and Mighty Tigers away. The Peoples Team will host Eagles, Kamuzu Barracks, TN Stars and Moyale Barracks whereas Wanderers will date TN Stars, Masters Security, Dwangwa and Mlatho Mponela away.

The Nomads will be at home against Tigers, Chitipa United and Karonga United.
