“Pay your witchdoctor first to start winning again’’ Peter Fote tells Nomads

118

He remains the same controversial journalist who hit headlines last year having sabotaged the Malawi national football team, which saw him being suspended by the Fa and sacked at the state broadcaster, but Peter Fote never ceases to bring shame to the profession.

Fote is in fresh trouble now over his recent remark he made in a Sports Programme called ‘Aishoshe Aione’  on Joy TV that the recent poor run of form by Mighty Wanderers has come for the team’s failure to settle dues with their ‘witch doctor’ whom he called ‘Ayaya’.

Fote alleged that he has evidence that links the two.

He argued that the Nomads will only come back to winning ways if they go and pay the remaining dues with their witchdoctor.

Fote dares Mighty Wanderers family.

Ironically, Fote who is fondly known with the tag ‘Alore Alore Akane Akane’ , hints that the Nomads have been using juju to do better in their games and in the Carlsberg Cup final, in which the Lali Lubani side beat city rivals Big Bullets.

“Ngati simulipira MK250 grand kwa Nsing’anga wanu Ayaya, simupeza chipambano” a Chichewa phrase that Fote revealed that the Nomads owe the witch doctor money amounting to MK 250 000.

“I can challenge you,  I have the phone numbers  you can call to verify this but I only spare you (sports fans) some respect” Fote said in the programme he was joined by ex EPAC F.C coach and controversial coach, Leo Mpulura who in the same vein revealed that he won his only trophy with his other former team Azam Tigers because of using Juju.

Ironically again, the two believe that the Nomads need to go back to where they got the ‘juju’ from and then be back to winning ways.

The sentiments have now been haunting the sports reporter who has been warned against watching Nomads games at the Stadium as the supporters of the team have threatened to ‘deal with him’ their own way.

Malawi24 understands that Fote failed to watch the Nomads match against Kamuzu Barracks last weekend in fear of the wrath of the Nomads fans, a meeting the side lost 1 nil.

The Nomads have never won after wining the Carlsberg Cup last month.

Some supporters told this reporter in Blantyre that Fote has been a disgrace to the media saying that they only want him to justify his remarks and brig vivid evidence to his claims.

“Iyeyo ngati akuti timagwilisa ntchito Mankhwala, atiuze bwino”, said the fans arguing that they need evidence to the claims.

Fote’s remarks have ignited debate in local sports platforms as the Nomads is being accused of using juju by rival supporters who are all basing their arguments to what Fote said on air.

Mighty Wanderers: In poor run of form.

In 2012, while at Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC), he was suspended for months following complaint from Silver Strikers that he told them to pay him if they wanted him to stop announcing about a  match fixing  plot when the team beat inform Blantyre United 5-0 to claim the championship of the top tier over over  Big Bullets.

Fote was last year banned for a  year from all football related activities organised by the Football Association of Malawi (FAM) after he sabotaged the Flames against Benin in the preliminary qualifying race to the 2014 Africa Cup of Nation (Afcon) to take place in Morocco.

Fote mistakenly sent a text meant for Benin’s Senior Technical Official to FAM’s Liaison Officer James Sangala using his mobile number of 0999950102.

The text read “Hie boss, this is a journalist who travelled with the Malawi team and I just wanted to say may the Almighty God bless you abundantly for helping me. I will in return, pay you by assisting you with information to beat Malawi at home. Let’s talk, Iam ready to do anything for you boss. “

Following this revelation, FAM summoned Fote who eventually accepted that the text came from him and the mother body met on 9th August 2014 at Chiwembe Technical Centre in Blantyre where they agreed to ban the controversial journalist before he switched to Joy TV.

The supporters reportedly intend to report Fote to authorities on the matter.

  23. Ikanakhala ngongole bwenz anapereka kale, Nyerere zili ndi dola. A Journalist like Fote saying such stories just shows his stupidness.

Apa ukubweresa nkhani yoti singathandize chilichonse kutukula mpira ka Malawi. SHAME! bola udzikangolima nyani!

  25. Malawi 24 do you mean that investigative and objective journalism brings shame to the journalism profession? I am now seriously doubting the journalism credentials of the author of this article and his understanding of the queen’s language should be questioned as well.

    Honestly speaking, fearless sports journalists like Peter Fote are the ones we need if the country is to be given authentic sports news. The author of this story is not critical in his approach to trade and littlewonder, therefore, that he writes on mere hearsays instead of digging the news.

    I can only advise the gentleman who has written this horrible and miserable article to go back to an authentic journalism school and sharpen his new gathering and writing skills, if at all he has any. I am afraid, this is pure schoolboy journalism.

  26. Malawi24 Malawi24 be objective pliz. Ndinaonera programme ine, sanatchule team inu inu inu eeeeee. Musiyeni Fote agwire ntchito yake yokomayi, musamupase minyama abale. Pliz Pliz sanatchule team. Kapena azapangeso replay programmeyo muzamvesese. FOTE WOYEEEEE!!!!!!!!!!!!! WE LOVE YOU COZ UMATIUZA ZENIZENI. MORE FIRE FOTE. IWE NDI NGWAZI ZINA ZAPADERADERA KU MBALII YA MPIRA.
