Masters Security owe players over K15 million


As the future of Masters Security is shrouded in mist, players have revealed that they are owed over K15 million.

Speaking after meeting club owner Alfred Gangata at his Area 3 offices in Lilongwe Tuesday, one of the players, Mussa Manyenje, said some of the players were owed millions

“We were called for a meeting and instead of paying us our allowances he [Gangata] only shouted at us. We haven’t been receiving our salaries for some months now. At first it used to come in bits. You may wish to know that my salary is K200,000 but I only got K150,000 in April before receiving K75,000 then K70,000. This applies to almost every player. Life is really hard,” he said.


At the meeting Gangata only hinted that he could provide support for the team to travel to Mzuzu to face Moyale Barracks in a TNM Super League match on Saturday.

Some of the players owed include goalkeeper, C h i m w e m w e Kumkwawa, Misheck Malaisha, goalkeeper Bester Phiri and Maneno Nyoni.

The development comes after the team’s Gangata, disclosed that he has disbanded the side following a string of poor results. He claimed that the side had been bewitched by a former official.


Gangata did not respond to our calls and WhatsApp message.

Meanwhile, former Masters coaches Abbasi Makawa and Elia Kananji also confirmed that they were owed millions.

“It is true that the club owes us money and we are anxiously waiting for a day when we will be called to get our dues,” said Kananji who is now an assistant coach at Civil Sporting Club.

Makawa, who is also an assistant coach for Silver Strikers, shared similar remarks.

Meanwhile, Football Association of Malawi (Fam) Licensing and Compliance Manager (LCM), Casper Jangale, could neither confirm nor deny the development following reports that some of Masters players had complained to the body.

“I can’t say much because all I know is that players at Masters have been getting their salaries in bits so we may not entirely conclude that they have gone months without pay,” he said.

Super League of Malawi General Secretary, Williams Banda, said they were yet to get official communication from Gangata and Masters.

Masters are bottom of the 16-member log table with 17 points from 24 games.
