The Isaac ‘Jomo’ Osman-led Big Bullets supporters faction has released its manifesto and on Tuesday paid its nomination fees to the club’s trustees in readiness for the February 1 Supporters Committee elections at BAT ground.
Among key issues in the manifesto are frequent fundraising activities for the team, taking the team to districts such as Chitipa so that fans across the country should feel ownership of the club and ensure that more income is generated from gate collections at Kamuzu Stadium.
According to the faction’s treasurer Bruce Tambwali and general secretary Mabvuto Chibambo, they want to bring back sanity at the club and ensure that no money from the gates go into people’s pockets.
“Kamuzu Stadium revenue loss is something that has to be sorted out fast to bring back people’s confidence,” said Tambwali.
Chibambo said they would also sensitise fellow fans on the need to contribute to the team financially during this period of sponsorship drought so as to motivate the players who can in turn win trophies for the team.
The faction has chosen Osman as its prospective chairperson while Stone Mwamadi is his deputy. Others are Emmanuel Chikoti as vice-general secretary and Dave Matemba as vice-treasurer.
