Peter Wadabwa, Richard Mbulu go neck-to-neck


The dog-fight for the coveted TNM Super League Golden Boot Award is getting fierce with Be Forward Wanderers striker, Peter Wadabwa, and his Mafco counterpart, Richard Mbulu, on each other’s heels having netted 11 and 10 goals each, respectively.

Mbulu struck again on Sunday alongside Stain Malata (a double) when Mafco stunned and embarrased leaders, Silver Strikers, 3-0 at Chitowe Stadium in Dwangwa.

Wadabwa, who netted the opener in a 2-2 draw against Epac on Saturday, has a chance to overtake Mbulu as Nomads have one game to wind up the first round.


Mafco, who moved to third position on 28 points following the win over Silver, have finished their opening round assignments.

Silver have 29 points from 15 games, at par with second-placed Blue Eagles, who have a game to wind up the first round.

Mbulu and Wadabwa have on their shoulders Chiukepo Msowoya, who has nine goals followed by followed by Epac’s Anthony Banda with eight goals, Moyale’s Khuda Muyawa and Manase Chiyesa of Kamuzu Barracks with seven goals.


Msowoya and Innocent Bokosi of Red Lions won last year’s Golden Boot Award with 16 goals each. No striker has scored more than 17 in over a decade.

Strikers of the late 1990 such as Ganizani Malunga, Heston Munthali, Aggrey Kanyenda and Bob Mpinganjira used to hit over 20 per season. Mpinganjira actually scored eight in 9-1 hammering of UFC in 2001.
