Sportsmen’s Association has asked for an audience with FAM on the outcome of the case between Mighty Wanderers and Silver Strikers following the violence that erupted during their Super League game in Balaka last Saturday.
Silver and Wanderers were banned for eight and five months respectively. The Bankers were also slapped with a K2.95 million fine while the Nomads were fined K700 000 (about $1 750).
According to a letter from the association, signed by general secretary Mussa Sanudi, the judgement was faulty.
“None of the players caused the violence, deserving a suspension of their teams which are the source of living. None of the players fired tear gas which accelerated the stampede,” reads part of the letter.
The association’s patron Charles Nyirenda said Sulom is only scratching the surface.
“They are only treating the symptoms instead of the actual disease because it was the fans that started the violence, but it is the players who will suffer the consequences,” said Nyirenda.
