Chitipa United sounds SOS for minibus


By Imam Wali:

Savenda Chitipa United has set up a task force to raise K7 million to buy a 30-seater coaster to ease transport woes when fulfilling away Super League fixture.

This comes against the background that Chitipa were paying K450,000 to travel to Mzuzu and then K750,000 to Lilongwe. The team also spends K1,250,000 to travel to Blantyre.


Chitipa, Task Force Treasurer, Lewis Yumbe Msukwa, said the community run side has been struggling as hired vehicles was costly.

“The team has been struggling to foot costs of transportation especially to away fixtures in the central and southern regions. This has had a negative result on the team as it depends on hired vehicles which are costly. Due to the challenge, the team could sometimes travel late and sometimes at a last to fulfill the fixture,” he said.

Msukwa asked for support from other stakeholders including Malawians in diaspora.


“For this dream to materialise we need support from our brothers and sisters from Chitipa district living in the country or in other countries to assist so that we reach the amount and probably before end of this season the team should have a mini bus. Other stakeholders are also called on to contribute to this noble cause which at the end will ensure that the game of football wins,” he said.

Bright Sibale is leading the taskforce.

Chitipa General Secretary, Pickford Kamanga, expressed gratitude with the development.

“Looking at transportation problems that we have been facing since the start of the season, having the team’s own bus will make life easier for them as executive will have much focus on the players’ welfare,” he said.
