Mighty Wanderers have said they will contest court action should their former team manager McHodges Chunga and coach Franco Ndawa drag the club to court for allegedly failing to settle dues amounting to K5.3 million (about $16 060).
Through their lawyers, Chunga and Ndawa jointly threatened to institute legal proceedings against the Nomads.
Wanderers were given five days to respond to the issue or risk being dragged to court.
According to Chunga, the period has expired, but the Nomads are yet to respond.
“I spoke to our lawyers and they informed us that Wanderers had not yet responded. However, the way forward will be determined by the outcome of the meeting with our lawyers,” said Chunga.
However, Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda, who doubles as legal adviser, yesterday said they would contest the matter.
The club’s chairperson George Chamangwana dismissed the duo’s claims.
Chunga said they referred the issue to the lawyers because Nomads were not cooperating.
