Malawi Police Service (MPS) outfit Blue Eagles will tomorrow parade the Airtel Top 8 trophy in Lilongwe.
The parade is scheduled to start from MPS Headquarters at Area 30 from 8am to Area 25, Area 49, Ntandire Area 3, Malangalanga, Mchesi, Biwi, Area 36. Kaphiri then bypass to Chinsapo, Likuni, NRC, Old Airport, Mbavi, Nsaru, Kabudula and back to Kabudula to Area 30 Senior Officers’ Mess for the climax of the celebrations.
Eagles general secretary Ulemu Kalua said the parade will concurrently run with the club’s anti-violence campaign launch.
“We are also launching anti-violence campaign around townships. As law enforcers, it is our duty to sensitise people against violence,” he said.
Eagles chairperson Alexander Ngwale said during whistlestops, they will talk against football hooliganism, gender-based violence, killing of people with albinism and crime in general.
Eagles won the 2018 edition of the cup after beating Nyasa Big Bullets 1-0 last month at Bingu National Stadium (BNS).
However, the match was marred by violence after Nyasa Big Bullets supporters went on the rampage in protest against referee Misheck Juba’s added time penalty to eventual winners Eagles.
Bullets have since been fined K7.2 million and banned from the 2019 edition of the cup.
