Resurgent Big Bullets have said they will celebrate their Presidential Cup triumph with a big bash at their Mandala clubhouse.
Bullets were feted like kings by their fans and were given a heroâ€™s send-off from Civo Stadium where the team bus moved at a snailâ€™s pace to Crown Lodge in Old Town.
They were escorted by delirious fans who caused traffic jam in the process.
Basking in the glory of their 1-0 win over Moyale Barracks on Saturday, Bullets saluted their fans who backed their cause.
The clubâ€™s chairperson Malinda Chinyama announced that they will donate part of their K10 million (about $40 000) prize to charity as one way of paying homage to the spirits for the teamâ€™s remarkable revival.
â€œIt has been a long time since we won a cup, 10 years to be precise; and we have every reason to celebrate,â€ said Chinyama.
He also a model of modesty when he stressed that the current management will not claim credit for the teamâ€™s dramatic revival.
â€œEveryone, and I mean everyone, from the supporters, the clubâ€™s leadership and the players have played a big role in breathing a new lease of life into this team and we need to celebrate as a family,â€ said Chinyama.
He also said as earlier promised, the players will share 50 percent of the prize money for a job well-done and they are planning to invest part of the remaining prize money and then donate a portion of it to charity.
The BB chairperson said he hopes renovation to the clubhouse will be through in a few daysâ€™ time.
He claimed that as a result of the closure of the clubhouse, the team has been losing between K250 000 and K300 000 a week in revenue.
On what he thinks has been the secret behind the clubâ€™s revival, Chinyama said: â€œTeam spirit, discipline and commitment from all the stakeholders have been the key factors.â€
Spontaneous parties erupted in open-air joints across the country as jubilant Bullets fans celebrated their teamâ€™s triumph.
