A group comprising former Nyasa Big Bullets officials has given the club’s board of directors a seven-day ultimatum to explain if they are satisfied with how the People’s Team is run in the current set-up.
The ‘Making Bullets Better’ group’s spokesperson Leo Kambalame yesterday said they have written a statement addressed to the board of directors expressing their concern that all departments that were supposed to work together in running the club to achieve a common goal “have been divided, weakened and dumped”.
He said that although Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC) now owns the club, there were conditions in the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which the company and the team signed that allow them to express their feelings about the affairs of the club.
“Honestly, things are not all rosy at our club. Sometimes we wonder why assignments that are supposed to be done by board of directors are carried out by the clubs’ employees that are outside the board. Almost all board of directors have been pushed away and are, practically, not part and parcel of running affairs of this great club,” Kambalame stated.
“We, therefore, seek an immediate explanation from all people entrusted with the running of the club to let us know if they are satisfied and if things are alright in the club’s management. Should you remain quiet within the given time, this group will assume that you are part and parcel of the whole rot that is happening at the club.”
Bullets supporters’ director Stone Mwamadi yesterday said they are aware of the group’s concerns and are ready to meet the aggrieved members to sort out the issue amicably.
“As servants of the Bullets family, we believe in sorting out issues amicably. If the group members feel something is wrong at the club, they are free to come to us as long as the issue is to do with helping Bullets become a better club,” he said.
