Big Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire has challenged convener of the team’s concerned supporters meeting Mabvuto Chibambo to produce evidence on his claims that Gabadinho Mhango was sold to South African team Bloemfontein Celtic at K12 million (US$28 708) and not K3 million (US$7 177) as claimed by the team’s management.
Chibambo made the claims during a meeting at Kanjedza Primary School ground in Blantyre on Wednesday.
“What he [Chibambo] said is very damaging. Does he have evidence to prove his sensitive allegations?
“We did not come to Bullets to make money. Some of us went to school and we have reputations in society, we have good jobs and someone cannot just wake up one day and destroy our names like that,” said Mkandawire.
The Bullets GS said they would be stupid to swindle Gabadinho’s transfer fee knowing that its management includes a Malawian John Maduka who is team manager.
“It is sad how people forget easily. This is the team that was deserted just three years ago and we accepted to breathe a new lease of life and now after successfully saving the team from extinction, this is what we are getting for a thank you?” said Mkandawire.
The Kanjedza meeting agreed to push for elections for both the supporters and the executive committee.
