United administrator Lawson Nakoma on Tuesday said they would wait for the potential sponsors to disclose what will become of their K22 million (about $122 000) sponsorship proposal which Kuku unveiled recently.
â€œWe are always hoping that they will take us on board. But we cannot afford to be excited as there is nothing yet. We learnt a lesson, so we better keep fingers crossed,â€ Nakoma said.
He said the teamâ€™s management had a meeting with Euro Industries officials last week over the proposalsâ€™ items, such as annual budget, on which the company sought clarification.
Euro Industries factory manager Ophman Kondowe last week confirmed that they needed clarification from United on some areas of the budget.
During the unveiling of the sole sponsorship bid, Kondowe insisted that the proposal would be scrutinised.
â€œIt is not automatic that we will award them the sponsorship as we still have to evaluate their proposal and also ask them a few questions. We believe we have been fair and open enough as we extended the submission deadline from December to January,â€ Kondowe told the press at the companyâ€™s Makata Industrial Area office.
In the proposal, United promised total accountability, to contribute to the surrounding communities through social activities sensitising the public to HIV/Aids and also promote Kuku brand through decent performance and discipline.
