Masters Security future hangs in limbo


The future of Masters Security FC hangs in balance after the team’s owner Alfred Gangata threatened to disband the side.

Gangata has shocked the football fraternity after claiming that his side has been bewitched by a former official.

“I am dumping football. I will donate all the points for our remaining matches because we will still lose the games. This team has been bewitched to lose games by [name withheld] because he wants to get credit that his presence at the club was still important,” he said.


A frustrated Gangata made the remarks after Masters woes got worse when they went down to Civil Sporting Club 2-1 in a TNM Super League match at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday to remain at the bottom of the 16-member log table with 17 points from 24 games.

Arrion Tchefu scored for Masters whereas Muhammad Sulumba and Nickson Mwase goals secured victory for Civil.

Gangata said he will turn his efforts into charitable activities including supporting his relatives.


“You may wish to know that I spend over K2 million to play away games in Blantyre or Mzuzu. We also pay K50,000 daily to Lilongwe Golf Club as a training pitch fee. I find it hard to keep on spending like this when others keep pulling me down,” he said.

However, Super League of Malawi (Sulom) President, Tiya Somba Banda, downplayed the issue saying it was premature to comment as Gangata was yet to officially notify the body.

Masters are remaining with six games to finish the second round. They will host second-placed Be Forward Wanderers and they are also expected to fulfill away fixtures Ntopwa FC, Mighty Tigers, Moyale Barracks, Mzuni and Blue Eagles.

Last season, the security men finished on fourth position on the league log table. They also lifted Carlsberg Cup after beating Be Forward Wanderers in the final at Kamuzu stadium.

Masters also participated in this year’s Caf Confederation Cup and were eliminated in the knockout stage by Uganda’s Proline FC having lost home and away matches.
