Big Bullets have taken the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) to task for getting the 2012/13 TNM Super League season underway this Saturday without a pre-season meeting.
In a letter to Sulom general secretary Williams Banda on Thursday, Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire demanded an annual general meeting (AGM) for last season’s post-mortem.
“I know that you always meet financial challenges to hold such meetings, but you should use your regional representatives to be delegated so that, at least, we should know how we are going to start coming season,” Mkandawire says in the letter The Nation has seen.
He notes that last season, clubs were chocked due to challenges such as “ground safety, officiation, fixtures challenges and players transfer.”
The Bullets publicist confirmed writing the letter which is copied to fellow club general secretaries.
“We contribute a lot of ground levy but nothing good is shown on improvement of pitches,” he complains in the letter.
Sulom general secretary Williams Banda challenged Bullets and all clubs to hold their respective stakeholders’ meetings before calling for the AGM.
“We are not aware [of Bullets complaint] considering that we had a stakeholders meeting on April 1. The AGM will take place in September. They should forecast before uttering these statements,” Banda challenged.
“How many free weeks were there? And how congested is the football calendar. Have they finalised paying outstanding debts to the league? Have they registered their club? So, who will foot the expenses? If you live in a glass house do not throw stones,” he said.
