The Super League of Malawi-Sulom has given Bullets FC 72 hours to respond to allegations that it is keeping and using striker Niyikiza Aimable without permission from his club, Mzuni FC.
Aimable has also been given the same period to respond to allegations that he is training with Bullets FC without Mzuni FC’s permission.
Said Sulom Treasurer Tiya Somba-Banda in a letter to Bullets FC’s general secretary on Wednesday;
“It is been alleged that the player has been training with Big Bullets without the permission of MZUNI FC up to the extent that you used the player during the Inter City Charity Trophy during the weekend of 7th and 8th August, 2015 contrary to Article 13.1.4 Super League of Malawi Constitution as read with Article 4.1 of the Football Association of Malawi Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.”
According to Somba-Banda, alleged Aimable’s actions contradict Article 10.1 (a) of Sulom Rules and Regulations as read with Article 10.1 (c), Article 12.7 and Article 4.1 of the Football Association of Malawi-Fam Regulations on the Status and Transfer of Players.
Recently, Sulom ordered clubs to stop directly discussing transfer deals with players.
Somba-Banda told The Nation that due to the directive, teams and players involved in such discussions risk hefty fines and suspensions as they will be in breach of Fam’s player-transfer procedures included in the recently reviewed constitution.
