Big Bullets FC main supporters committee chairperson Isaac Jomo Osman has changed his tune on the prospects of resigning from his position, saying he will not quit.
The flamboyant Bullets top fan hinted that he would quit after the Super League of Malawi (Sulom) issued a statement to its affiliates that officials are now allowed to double as politicians.
To this effect, Sulom general secretary Williams Banda asked club officials that are aspirants in the May 20 Tripartite Elections to choose one.
However, Osman yesterday challenged that in enforcing the order, Bullets should first check if it is in line with the club’s constitution.
“My position is that I am still aspiring for the position of councillor in [Blantyre] Bangwe Ward, but I will not quit my position at Bullets because I believe that the constitution does not bar me from doubling as a politician.
“The other thing that should be borne in mind is that I am just an aspiring councillor, I have not yet become one. So, the issue of choosing one does not come into play at this point. However, in the event that I win, then I can make a choice,” argued the burly fan.
Bullets already took up the matter with Osman through their chairperson Kondi Msungama, but speaking in an interview yesterday, the club’s general secretary Harold Fote said they will have to look into the points raised by their supporters chairperson.
“It is an issue that needs to be discussed at length because the issues that he is raising could have substance,” said Fote.
