In a dramatic turn events, Malawi super league relegated team, Wizards FC owner Peter Mponda has pulled his team out of Foundation for Irrigation and Sustainable Development (FISD) sponsorship deal with immediate effect.
On Wednesday, Malawi24 published a story in which Mponda openly told Fisd management that his team was not ready to re-locate to Lilongwe as a condition for safe-guarding the K40 million sponsorship package and had asked his sponsors to formally make a decision on their conditions.
However, Fisd managing director Frank Mwenechanya responded back by leaving everything in the hands of Mponda to decide on whether to move to Lilongwe or not but was quick to say if the team refuse to re-locate to the Capital City, his organisation will have no choice but to pull out of sponsoring the team.
And after 72 hours, Mponda has dropped the bomb.
He has come out in the open to tell Fisd management that he is no longer interested in renewing their agreement because of the condition attached to the deal.
According to information made available to Malawi24, the former Big Bullets, Black Leopards and Flames captain has told Fisd that it was not on for the team to move to Lilongwe yet its base is in Blantyre.
“Is it possible for Big Bullets or Mighty Wanderers to move to Lilongwe just because of sponsors conditions? We are based in Blantyre as such, we are no longer interested in renewing this contract.”
“We have pulled out. We re-locate to Lilongwe, where will we start? If we move to Lilongwe, we will be desturbed so to avoid further damage, we have decided to pull out of this sponsorship deal,” said Mponda in a letter that has been sent to Fisd management.
Fisd is yet to respond to Mponda’s latest letter.
Wizards got relegated in the just ended season after finishing bottom of the table with 21 points from 28 games.

WAPONDA MWALA SAPANGA PHUMA KKKK!!!!
Even the name ‘fisd’ is not good at all. It must move to balaka & renamed ‘Alleluya stars’
Waponda Mwala Ameneyo!
We need such people like Mponda in football administration, not these yes bwanas. Bravo Peter, a good sponsor is on his way, when one door closes several doors open
mukufuna apite ku LL ndalazake ziti osamayesana
What goes around comes around. Mr. Mponda, you thought you were clever ‘stealing’ a football club from Surestream Academy. Now, the Surestream spirits are here to take their revenge…. first relegation, then sponsorship withdrawal. Zikatere, we say ‘team yatha!’ i.e the team is finished
Makani a mponda ndiwosapindula ndithu
Ayambise yawo ngati alimadolo
That’s being strong indeed, malawi needs pple like mponda, not easly shaken. Big up mponda!
Kkkkkk koma tinva ngande mumacoments mu eeee
Kkkkkk. Zanyau ngalaundizo ife ayi!
Thats what we call clever, mponda is a man, akufuna kukubela club yakoyo.
It was clear that the sponsor was not ready to continue with the relationship by coming up with unreasonable demand.
Wory no thieves
Maganizo a booo a mponda team singasinthe base cos of sponsership akhala nayo asiyeni ngati akufuna azikathandiza achina mbabvi united ndi ena otelowo
Mkulu uyu makani ngati ofula agalu..day inayake azaviyika mgoma mmadzi oho
in #Mponda mmmh!, no sportsman ship.
Tindalama tao tosathandiza mkomwe akagwere!
As a matter of fact the sponsors delibetately set a condition they knew Mponda wouldn’t accept. They should have come straight and declare their loss in interest to continue the sponsorship. Mukufuna muzikhala ngati ma donor bwanji?
a mponda kukula mtima, mukwanisa inu?
Othandizawanso amatengela ma chance umakwana Mponda.
Good move. Relocation was going to be too costly even for the players.
wapoila llz ndi deal….ma team a llz sakumatuluka mu league…
Its not Netball
We are talking about Football there relocating the whole Team to LL is not Good idea ? Mponda.
who said its netball? so who will suffer now? mponda or the team? y looking on one thing? 40million is alot of money moreover the team is not in super league…do u even know why fisd wantef the team to move to lilongwe?
I know why FISD want Team to LL,because the team is not from Lilongwe,Got it?.
Leave Mpando alone,he left Surestream and he got FISD,don’t worry he will get another Supposser from Here BT,Thank you for your Concern Sweetheart.
