Barely a month after Mighty Wanderers pulled out of a sportswear deal with US-based firm Nsejjere Casual & Sports Wear, it has emerged that Big Bullets also want its partnership with the firm reviewed.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire confirmed in an interview on Thursday, saying they would like to be updated on the progress.
â€œWe would like to sit down with management of Nsejjere in order to review the deal and see if we are benefiting from it because currently we are in the dark.
â€œWe want to find out how much has been made from the sale of merchandise because since we started, they have not updated us on the progress, neither have we received any cut from the sales.
â€œThe other thing is that our supporters and indeed the general public would want to know the progress of the deal, but in absence of an update from Nsejjere, it is difficult,â€ said Mkandawire.
Nsejjereâ€™s country director Jacob Chikoya could not be reached for comment on Thursday.
However, the US-based firm recently threatened Wanderers with legal action for breach of contract.
The firm stated that it would seek $1 400 000 (then about K380 million) in compensation.
â€œFirst and foremost, we will not rest until the absolute minimum annual retribution to Nsejjere Sports is met by the club,â€ stated part of the letter from Nsejjere signed by Chikoya.
He then claimed that their lawyers had already started the legal process after exhausting all channels to convince Wanderers on the need to honour contractual obligations.
The Nomads pulled out of the deal citing breach of contract by Nsejjere for engaging third parties in the sale of the merchandise.
However, the clubâ€™s general secretary David Kanyenda on Thursday claimed they had not yet received any lawsuit
â€œThey just indicated that they would sue us, but up to now, we have not been served with any lawsuit,â€ claimed Kanyenda.
He also said the Nomads would counter the lawsuit.Â
