Mighty Be Forward Wanderers flamboyant fan Yona Malunga’s misery, after the loss to Big Bullets, was aggravated when his Toyota Cresta vehicle rear windscreen was smashed as he drove out of Wanderers Club premises on Saturday evening.
Malunga alleged that the Nomads’ main supporters committee chairperson Dinesi Chitsulo was the one who threw the stone that broke the windscreen.
“After the match, I went to Wanderers Club to meet a certain gentleman, suddenly as I drove out of the club premises, I saw Chitsulo picking up a stone and smashing my windscreen.
“To avoid confrontation, I did not stop. Instead, I drove straight to Southern Region Police Headquarters to report the matter where they advised me to go there again today [yesterday] so that they can record my statement. I am at a loss to figure out why he [Chitsulo] could do such a thing when I have committed my support to him and his committee,” said Malunga.
However, Chitsulo yesterday denied stoning Malunga’s vehicle.
“That is not true because I did not meet Yona yesterday [Saturday] nor was I at Wanderers Club at the time of the incident. In fact, after the match, we remained at the stadium [with other supporters] to map the way forward after that painful loss. That is just propaganda.
“But what I know is that he has been on a crusade to campaign against our committee for his own personal gains. In fact, some fans were disappointed that he appeared happy that we lost so that he could advance his personal interests. So, when they heard that he was at the clubhouse, they followed him there, but I am not sure if they are the ones who smashed his vehicle,” said Chitsulo.
National Police deputy spokesperson Nicholas Gondwa confirmed the incident.
“Mr. Malunga indeed came here to lodge that complaint and he alleges that Chitsulo was the one who stoned his car and we referred him to Soche Police where he had his statement recorded for further investigations,” said Gondwa.
