Big Bullets FC board of trustees has summoned the team’s executive and main supporters committee following revelations of fallout.
This follows the club’s chairperson Kondi Msungama’s claims this week that some of the executive committee members were sabotaging him and that the supporters committee leader Isaac Jomo Osman is causing confusion, by among other things, grabbing proceeds from gate revenue.
Trustees secretary Jim Kalua said they have called for a meeting this Friday to try and resolve differences that have emerged within the executive committee on one hand, and a section of the exco and the supporters’ body on the other.
“Normally, whenever there are differences be it in the executive or the main supporters committee, we do not interfere immediately hoping issues can be sorted out amicably within themselves.
“But we have observed that the situation appears to be getting out of hand and hence; our intervention. This is an internal issue that can be sorted out through dialogue,” said Kalua.
Main supporter’s committee secretary Mabvuto Chibambo said it was unfortunate that Msungama rushed to the media before exhausting other avenues.
“If he saw a problem, the best that the chair [Msungama] could have done was to call for a meeting involving all stakeholders.
“In fact last week, we tried to call for a meeting where we wanted to raise some concerns related to the management of the team and we also expected him as the leader to voice out his concerns as well, so that together we could find a solution, but he avoided us, saying he was tied up,” said Chibambo.
He added: “One of the concerns that we have is that the team is being run by two officials [Msungama and GS Harold Fote] as was the case in the past and when one tries to raise such an issue, he or she is viewed as a rebel.”
Msungama on Wednesday welcomed the trustees move, but declined to comment on Chibambo’s claims.
“Since you are saying the trustees have called for a meeting then I think it will be wise to respond to any other issue at that particular forum,” he said.
