Bus Ipite saga rages on


Be Forward Wanderers have reportedly failed to secure documents for the bus they won from Luso Television-sponsored Bus Ipite Bonanza in January 2017.

It means that Wanderers might be using the bus illegally as they needed the documents to register the motor vehicle with the Department of Road Traffic.

The Nomads outgoing vice General Secretary, Chris Kananji, confirmed in a recent interview that the club had exhausted all avenues of getting the documents.


“We have tried everything but it seems we are fighting a losing battle. We do not know what will happen,” said Kananji who is not seeking re-election at Nomads.

Last year, Kananji indicated that Luso failed to secure the documents as the station owed clearing agents, Allied Freight, K7 million.

Football Association of Malawi (Fam) sanctioned the bonanza.


But Fam Commercial and Marketing Director, Limbani Matola, said the contract was between the two clubs and Luso.

“We issued a certificate to Luso TV to organise the bonanza after they met all the requirements. They signed a contract with the clubs,” Matola said.

On his part, Kendal Kamwendo, who was at the hub of organising the bonanza last year, said he was not comfortable to comment on the matter.

Just a day after the bonanza, the bus broke down on the way from Lilongwe to Blantyre with the Nomads players on board. Luso paid for the cost for the repair.

Wanderers won the bus after beating Nyasa Big Bullets 5-1 over two legs.

Striker Jafalie Chande scored four goals in the two games. Luso pocketed K48 million in gate revenue in the second-leg played at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
