Azam Tigers coach Leo Mpulula has dropped charges against Silver Strikers supporters whom he accused of insulting and drenching him in beer after their Super League game two week ago.
Mpulula said in an interview on Tuesday he has decided to withdraw the case on humanitarian grounds following an apology from Silver strikers.
In a letter addressed to Sulom general secretary Williams Banda, Mpulula said he had a fruitful discussion with one of the supporters, a Chibweya, who showed remorse on the matter.
“I have advised them to control their supporters in future to prevent a recurence of such scenarios.
“I had also taken into consideration the apology which came from the board chairperson Kelvin Mâ€™mangisa and club chairperson chairperson Dr. McDonald Mafuta-Mwale after the game.
“I believe football is there to build relationships between different types of people. So, it is a closed chapter,” said Mpulula.
He added that the development does not mean he was compesated in any way.
“It was a purely personal decision to drop the charges and I have not been offered any compensation.
“I personally felt there was no need to continue with the case as I want to concentrate on lifting the performance of my team and fight for honours. But if I am provoked again, then I will take a serious action,” said Mpulula.
Banda confirmed receiving the letter and said they will proceed as advised by Mpulula.
Mwale commended Mpulula for the gesture, but warned his supporters to control their behavior.
