Sheriffs pounce on Mzuzu University


By Bernard Mhone:

Sheriffs from the Industrial Relations Court in Mzuzu Wednesday impounded three vehicles from Mzuzu University (Mzuni) over K32 million arrears which the institution owes 12 Mzuni FC players.

The Sheriffs descended on the university after the court found it in breach of terms of the players’ contracts.


The Sheriffs impounded a minibus, seven-tonne lorry and Toyota Land Cruiser after the institution failed to pay termination payments, gratuity and repatriation, training allowances, salaries and game bonuses for the players.

Mzuni acting Registrar, James Kwilimbe, Wednesday confirmed the development.

The university did not file a defence and the case went into default judgement.


The players took the university to court in April 2019 after it announced its withdrawal of sponsorship from the TNM Super League team.

The team’s management said it was surprised that the university was distancing itself from ownership of the club.

“Initially, they wanted to cease four vehicles but they have taken three because the fourth one is my official vehicle,” Kwilimbe said.

He said the university legal council is looking into the matter.
