The Peoples team according to Malawi24 findings lost a total sum K6 million during the friendly game that was staged at Kamuzu stadium about two weeks ago.
In the aftermath of this safely made ‘cashgate’ speculation, latest reports indicate the teams treasurer, Noel Lipipa has been relieved of his duties.
Lipipa claims to have been against the call for the friendly which he felt would cost the team money but some of his senior officials opposed him and the call for his resignation is only meant to cover up the mess he foresaw.
The others whose blood has also been sought by the pressure groups within the Bullets family include, Sadik Malinga, Alex Gondwe and Titha Mandiza.
Malawi24 has learnt that training session was on Wednesday afternoon disrupted after angry supporters stormed the ground calling for resignation of some officials.
Their move was motivated by the need to bring sanity in the team’s financial management, their solution towards sustaining finances.
Controversy has besieged the Super League defending champions after supporters also wanted their Chairman, Sam Chilunga out.
This created a conflict of interest between sponsors, Nyasa Manufacturing Company and supporters though the former still recognizes Chilunga as the team’s chairman.
The Blantyre giants are currently under a seven day ultimatum to clean their back room staff or risk losing their half a billion sponsorship.
Nyasa Company is ready to continue being the club’s financial backbone should a calm environment be created at the club. The company is reportedly to have pumped in K4 million to pay players, a development that has earned it more of applauses than criticism.
Bullets secured the record breaking sponsorship last year which puts them in a better position to continue their dominance on the local scene.
In absence of a sound financial base, they managed to win two consecutive TNM Super League tittles. The coming in of sponsors has helped them make big name signings this season.
