Fiscal Police has cleared all those that were implicated in the alleged mismanagement of gate revenue from a TNM Super League match between Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers in October 2015.
Those implicated included Joka Investments, who were hired to man the gates, the then Bullets main supporters’ committee secretary Mabvuto Chibambo and former treasurer Bruce Tambwali.
The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) lodged a complaint to Fiscal Police after the match grossed K16 million, which was almost K10 million short of what was raised in the first round of the same season between the two teams.
But Sulom general secretary Williams Banda yesterday said the report released by Fiscal Police on Monday has not implicated anyone due to lack of substantial information to warrant continuation of the case docket.
“This means all the people that were being investigated have now been cleared. However, should anyone happen to have information in the future, Fiscal Police shall reopen the docket and do the needful,” he said.
According to Bullets board of trustees chairperson James Busilley, the development means Chibambo and Tambwali are free to contest in Saturday’s Bullets main supporters committee elections.
The trustees recently announced that those with outstanding issues with the club, Sulom and the Football Association of Malawi will not be allowed to contest both at supporters and executive level.
Chibambo yesterday said he felt relieved that he has been vindicated at last.
“It might have taken long, but I am happy that truth has prevailed and now I am looking forward to the elections,” he said. n
