Be Forward Wanderers have engaged an extra gear in their quest to become self-reliant after embarking on a structures building exercise.
The club’s supporters committee is establishing district and zonal committees in readiness for its campaign to be raising K100 million monthly through contributions.
Besides that, the club is also setting up a committee to champion the fundraising.
Wanderers Supporters Committee Chairperson, Mervin Nkunika, said mobilising resources requires representation in all the districts.
“This is why we have been going around some districts choosing committees to link the club and the masses. Yes, we have a lot of supporters but they need to be guided to see how best to assist the club,” he said.
Nkunika said a committee that will take charge of the fundraising would be announced soon.
“We are having people that are honest and strong to avoid stealing from the club. Some of reputable people include our former treasurer, Robert Mbeza and the club chairperson, Simon Sikwese. We feel such characters will help bail out the club from this trouble,” he said.
Nkunika promised transparency and accountability while urging Wanderers supporters to make contributions.
“All we are asking for is K100 a month from every supporters. We claim to have four million supporters in the country. Out of this number, we want one million supporters to contribute K100 each towards the running of the team monthly,” he said.
The Nomads’ supporters chairperson said details including benefits for supporters who will be contributing monthly would be released soon.
Wanderers have pressed panic button after their sponsor-Japanese firm Be Forward Limited, announced it would stop bankrolling the side from December 31 2020.
