Chiukepo Msowoya injured, ruled out for 2 weeks


Nyasa Big Bullets’ chase for the TNM Super League championship has suffered a setback following the injury of their hit-man, Chiukepo Msowoya, who has been ruled out for two weeks.

Bullets Team Doctor, Felix Mwalule, said Msowoya—the team’s leading scorer—pulled thigh muscles during the Fisd Challenge Cup semi-final loss to Moyale Barracks at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Sunday.

Mwalule said he assessed the former Orlando Pirates striker on Monday afternoon and discovered that he picked a hamstring injury.


Mwalule said Msowoya will not be available for Thursday’s TNM Super League game against Azam Tigers at Chilomoni Stadium in Blantyre, and Sunday’s match against Silver Strikers at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikwawa.

The doctor was optimistic that Msowoya will be available for Bullets’ remaining league games.

“We have given him time to rest this week, and he will also be assessed next week. We want him to recover fully. We expect him [back in action] after next week,” Mwalule said.


On Sunday, Msowoya was substituted for Bright Munthali in the 51st minute after providing an assist for Collin Nkhulambe’s equaliser that cancelled out Khuda Muyaba’s first-half strike for Moyale.

Bullets Team Manager, James Chilapondwa, said Msowoya’s injury was a big blow to the team’s hunt for the title.

“We are playing against Azam Tigers, and it is one of our crucial fixtures in our chase for the league title,” Chilapondwa said.

Bullets struggled to score in the early stages of the season, but all that changed when they re-signed Msowoya following his release by Golden Arrows of South Africa.

Bullets are on second position on the league’s log table with 54 points from 25 games whereas rivals, Be Forward Wanderers, lead the table with 58 points from the same number of games.
