Nyasa Big Bullets have fined striker Hassan Kajoke for his expulsion last week from the Flames camp in preparation for Afcon qualifiers against South Sudan and Uganda.
Last Sunday, Kajoke left Chiwembe Hotel and returned on Monday, which prompted Mwase to expel him from camp.
Nyasa Bullets chief administration officer Albert Chigoga said in an interview on Friday that the player would forfeit two-week game bonus.
He said: “As a club, we encourage our players to be role models to others and exemplary to the public. We have applied our internal code of conduct to fine the player accordingly. He won’t receive allowances for two weeks.
“It was sad to hear that Hassan was suspended under the regrettable circumstances. The good news is that the player is remorseful and has promised never to do this again.”
However, Kajoke said he was not aware of the fine.
“I don’t know anything about the fine. Who has said that,” he said.
But the player was quoted on Malawi News edition as having said that he regrets his behaviour and has since apologised to FAM.
Reads the letter in part: “It was irresponsible for me to break the Covid-19 protocols which are in place to protect players and the public. In particular, I would like to apologise to Flames coach Meck Mwase for letting him down when he had shown trust in me.
“Playing for the national team was the greatest moment of my life and I am gutted that I will miss the opportunity to represent my country again.”
In Kajoke’s absence, Mwase has Vincent Nyangulu, Stain Davie and Royal Bokosi as his strikers.
The trio could be joined by South Africa-based Richard Mbulu and Frank Gabadinho Mhango who has recovered from recurring injury.
