Nyasa Big Bullets supporters on Sunday contradicted themselves on the message of peace they carried on a banner at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikwawa District.
During the Airtel Top 8 quarter-final game against Moyale, some Bullets’ fans threw bottles at Moyale’s goal, suspecting that the soldiers had charms that were preventing the People’s Team from scoring.
Ironically, Bullets scored in injury time to win the game 1-0.
Moyale Coach, Charles Kamanga, complained that such incidents affected his players psychologically.
“Bullets must be reminded that football is not about juju. Let them play good football, score goals and win games fairly,” Kamanga said.
Football Association of Malawi acting Competitions Manager, Casper Jangale, has since advised teams to behave at match venues.
“Indeed, Moyale complained about what happened but it was a small issue. Everything went well and the incident cannot overshadow the supporters’ good behaviour for the better part of the game,” Jangale said.
Last week, Bullets were also involved in violence, in protest over poor officiation during a game against Be Forward Wanderers at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.
On Tuesday, during a Super League game between Tigers FC and Wanderers, the Kau Kau goalkeeper Christopher Mikuwa also complained to the referee after Nomads supporters threw some liquid on him due to Juju beliefs.
