Silver Strikers, who have since appealed against the punishment meted out to them by Sulom disciplinary committee, have accused Sulom of having a hidden agenda against them as the fight for the Super League title heads to a climax.
The Bankers’ chairperson Dr. McDonald Mafuta-Mwale said this on Thursday in the wake of the stern punishment imposed on his side following the violence that occurred during their league match against Epac which ended in a 1-1 draw last Sunday.
Silver were fined K1.1 million (about $3 235) and banned from playing their next six games at home.
“If they are advancing the interests of a certain team, then they should just let that team win [the championship],” said Mafuta-Mwale.
However, Sulom general secretary Williams Banda dismissed claims that his body has a hidden agenda against Silver.
“The determination was made in accordance with the facts that the disciplinary committee gathered. There was nothing sinister,” said Banda.
Apparently, the chase for the title is now between Silver and Big Bullets.
