Wanderers, Big Bullets supporters bosses desperate


Fever has gripped Be Forward Wanderers and Nyasa Big Bullets supporters committees ahead of tomorrow’s TNM Super League meeting between the two sworn rivals at Kamuzu Stadium.

The Wanderers camp is under pressure to beat Bullets for the first time in a league match in seven years while the People’s Team is hoping to win and overtake their rivals at the summit of the table.

The Nomads’ supporters committee Chairperson, Mervin Nkunika, said his position could be under threat if they lose to Bullets.


Nkunika was elected in 2017 with supporters asking him to ensure that the Lali Lubani Road side defeated Bullets in the top flight league by the end of the 2018 season.

He has failed to do so as Wanderers lost 1-0 to Bullets in the first round match of the 2017 season and drew 1-1 in the second.

Last season, Wanderers and Bullets settled for 1-1 draws in the first and second rounds. Their first round clash in the current season ended goalless.


Nkunika said on his election two years ago, supporters charged him with the responsibility of ensuring victory against Bullets during his tenure and tomorrow’s game was his last chance.

“Upon being elected to lead the Wanderers supporters across the country, I was asked to help the team beat Bullets. It has been a long time since we last beat Bullets and I have one last chance.

“Things may not have worked to our advantage for the past two years of my tenure but I have taken the lead to ensure that there is enough vocal support so that we win against Bullets this time,” Nkunika said.

Bullets supporters director, Stone Mwamadi, said he was under pressure from fans who would like to see the team defeating Wanderers to take over the lead.

Mwamadi said he had mobilised fans from different parts of the country to offer vocal support to the players throughout the game.

“This will be a battle between Wanderers supporters and Bullets supporters. We will be there in large numbers and we will drown them. I am feeling sorry for Nkunika as his team will not manage to beat us.

“Bullets supporters will give out the best vocal support to the players and ensure that Wanderers lose the top spot. Nkunika should not even think about convincing his fans to re-elect him as Wanderers will come out losers,” Mwamadi said.

Wanderers are leading the log table with 44 points from 19 matches whereas Bullets are second with 41 points from 18 matches.

If Bullets win, they would take over the lead as they have a better goal difference of 35 against Wanderers’ 27.
