Super League of Malawi (Sulom) has suspended vice-general secretary (GS) Zakaria Nyirenda for indiscipline.
In an interview yesterday, Sulom general secretary Williams Banda said the action was taken to pave the way for investigations into failure to deposit gate revenue for Silver Strikers and Nyasa Big Bullets after their game on May 9.
He said: “He has been suspended because we feel there was gross indiscipline when he did not deposit gate revenue for Silver and Bullets amounting to K1.3 million each. He has started paying back, but Bullets are yet to get their share. Silver got K1 million.”
Banda said Nyirenda did not deposit the money because he used it for personal issues, but he has assured them that he will pay back.
Nyirenda could not be reached for comment yesterday, but he was quoted by our sister paper The Nation as having said he did not deposit due to communication breakdown.
He said: “There was communication mix-up. Silver received their money on Saturday and Bullets will be getting their money within the week.
“Sulom maintains the open-door policy and clubs are urged to follow right procedures when having concerns to do with league’s governing body.”
