Nyasa Big Bullets board of trustees has resolved that the club’s annual general meeting (AGM) should be held on January 28 in Blantyre.
This follows an impromptu trustees’ meeting that was held in Blantyre yesterday to, among other things, clear the confusion surrounding the executive committee elections.
Bullets trustees chairperson James Busilley also said the meeting resolved that the polls for the main supporters and executive committees should go ahead as planned on January 4 and 11, respectively.
“Following the contradictions as regards to the elections, it was imperative that we should meet and map the way forward.
“So, it has been agreed that the AGM will be held earlier in Blantyre where all other outstanding issues, including recommendations by the task force regarding the issue of club licensing, will be discussed,” he said.
According to a source who attended the meeting, it was established that the confusion that arose was a result of not following the constitution and lack of consultation.
“The AGM is the supreme authority of the club as per Article 7.5 of our constitution. A resolution was made during the extraordinary general meeting held on January 31 that the current executive will hold office until the end of the season and it is only the same authority that can decide whether we should abandon the elections or not,” he said.
Confusion engulfed the People’s Team camp on Wednesday when Busilley contradicted trustees’ vice-secretary Victor Msowoya’s announcement that the elections had been cancelled, a development that prompted protests from some quarters. n
