Big Bullets FC have dissolved their Northern Region committee in the wake of the teamâ€™s 2-1 defeat at the hands of Super Eagles, which sent them packing from the K20 million Carlsberg Cup.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire justified the decision, saying it was made after establishing that there was conflict of interest among some members.
He also said the teamâ€™s executive board was supposed to have an emergency meeting last evening to discuss the teamâ€™s exit from the tournament.
â€œWe have dissolved our Northern Region committee after establishing some abnormalities.
â€œFor instance, we have established that one of the committee members, Steve Kachimanga, is also a director of Super Eagles and there was conflict of interest. There are a number of issues that occurred behind the scenes which need to be investigated and then we will map the way forward,â€ said Mkandawire.
He said in view of the development, all issues relating to the club in the Northern Region will be handled by Dorcas Chenda-Mkandawire, who is a trustee for the club.
The Northern Region Bullets committeeâ€™s publicity secretary Brown Afiki confirmed the dissolution.
Mkandawire distanced Bullets from the violence that occurred at Mzuzu Stadium after their loss.
â€œWe lost to [Mighty] Wanderers recently in a Standard Bank Cup semi-final match and our fans did not cause any violence. The violence [in Mzuzu] was orchestrated by people with ill motives. We were not part of it,â€ said Mkandawire.
However, Mkandawire apologised to FAM and sponsors Carlsberg for the ugly scenes.
FAM chief executive officer Suzgo Nyirenda said the matter will be thoroughly investigated and stern action will be taken against the culprits.
