Nyasa Big Bullets, Silver Strikers gang up against Sulom

Super League of Malawi (Sulom) got a rude awakening on Saturday after giants Nyasa Big Bullets and Silver Strikers united against the league’s governing body.

This happened as the two clubs were summoned for a disciplinary hearing at Sunbird Lilongwe Hotel for various offences.

The Sulom Disciplinary Committee, chaired by George Mussa, charged Silver with two offences of bringing the game of football into disrepute and failure to control actions of supporters during a first round match at Silver Stadium last season.


On the part of Bullets, they were charged with three offences including failure to control supporters and bringing the game of football into disrepute on July 30 2021 at Kamuzu Stadium.

However, the two clubs objected to the charges while also claiming that they resolved the matter.

According to details, Silver lawyer Chrispine Sibande told the disciplinary committee that there was no complaint from Bullets as stipulated in Article 23 of Sulom’s rules and regulations.


“It is like Sulom likes milking money from Silver for selfish reasons and un sportsmanship reasons. It is time Sulom became professional and treated all teams equally. One case can’t be heard within 21 days and the other one takes one year. That is unfairness,” Sibande said.

On his part, Bullets Chief Administration Officer Albert Chigoga said they never complained to Sulom on the matter.

“The hearing was not legally constituted, hence we asked the disciplinary committee to suspend it. As for the clubs, there is some truce,” Chigoga said.

In an interview Sunday, Sulom General Secretary Williams Banda said the gist of the matter was that it delayed in tabling the cases due to lack of incident reports.

“Silver started saying that the matter has no complainant despite those objections. The committee sat and tabled the matter to close it in line with the evidence and will come up with a determination.

“Silver and Bullets alleged to have closed the matter but never wrote Sulom,” Banda said.

There was bad blood between Silver and Bullets supporters last season which forced the clubs to hold peace talks.

Before the start of the season, supporters from the two clubs had a peace parade during the Pamtsetse Bonanza at Bingu National Stadium.
