Mighty Wanderers supporters angry
A section of Mighty Wanderers supporters Tuesday called for the removal of the team’s secretary to the board Humphreys Mvula, accusing him of working in isolation.
The supporters from Southern, Central and Eastern regions Tuesday marched to Mvula’s BCA residence, asking him to step down.
Wanderers Supporters Committee Chairperson Dines Chitsulo said they would seek an audience with all board members to address the issue.
“We are calling on him to step down for, among other reasons, personalising the club, holding club meetings at his residence and failure to call for a board meeting which is against the regulations governing the club,” he said.
Chitsulo said it was disheartening to learn that players were yet to receive signing-on fees.
“We believe Wanderers works as a family and no one should be acting in isolation. Currently, it is rumoured that we are going to lose some of our players who are yet to get their signing-on fees,” Chitsulo said.
His remarks were echoed by Central Region Chairperson Rodrick Chitedze.
Mvula and Wanderers Commercialisation Chairperson Clement Stambuli did not pick up our calls when contacted.
The club’s public affairs manager Ernest Maganga called for calm.
“The issue can best be handled through contact and dialogue,” he said.
