Super League of Malawi (Sulom) is investigating six clubs over various misconduct offenses as the TNM Super League first round edges closer to the end.

The clubs are Be Forward Wanderers, Silver Strikers, Nyasa Big Bullets, Mighty Tigers, Karonga United and Moyale.

Sulom General Secretary, Williams Banda, said the offences were supporter-related.

The investigation follows incidents that marred the game between Wanderers and Tigers at Mulanje Park Stadium on Sunday.

Police fired teargas canisters to quell crowd trouble, forcing the game to stop for over five minutes.

Banda said besides the Mulanje game, Sulom was also investigating matches between Silver and Wanderers, Bullets and Wanderers as well as Karonga versus Moyale.

“There are several incidents of disorderly conduct that we are investigating as the first round nears the end. We will charge and fine the offenders accordingly. We have reports that alleged Karonga United supporters threatened the referee during their team’s game against Moyale.

“We also have a report concerning throwing of objects onto the pitch as well as pitch invasion during the game between Silver Strikers and Be Forward Wanderers,” he said.

Banda said the suspected teams would be charged accordingly before the end of the week

“There are also some criminal issues that are being handled by the police from the game between Silver and Wanderers. We are also aware that in the game between Tigers and Wanderers, teargas was thrown by police to dispense supporters. The Blantyre derby between Bullets and Wanderers also had incidents where the referee was threatened,” he said.
