There was drama at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday during the Chifundo Charity shield clash involving traditional rivals, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers and Nyasa Bullets as Nomads supporters booed Bullets’ new signing Mohammed Sulumba.
The hitman however took no time to torment his former club as he scored an early goal having utilised a defensive error by wanderers’ Kondwani Lufeyo.
His combination with Flames striker Chiukepo Msowoya was a recipe for goals making him a thorn in Wanderers’ fresh, thus proving to be an eyesore in the Nyerere’s sense of sight.
The blues’ fans could no longer stand his humiliations but boo him in reaction while calling him all sorts of names.
However the gigantic forward was not moved as he kept discharging his services for Bullets much to the delight of their fans.
In a post-match interview with the local media, the striker said the boos had no effect on him. He defended Wanderers supporters, arguing they acted in that way because they wanted a victory for their club which he said is normal. Speaking on Bullets’ victory, he expressed happiness considering nature of the game.
The people’s team signed Sulumba from Blantyre United after the former Blantyre United finisher lost interest in the Lali Lubani boys, where he was loaned for a season.
His move did not please the Nomads camp as they were moving in on signing him following an impressive performance during his loan spell.
A player who jumps to the rival camp is considered a traitor since it is rare for the city rivals to trade players.
Sulumba was therefore branded betrayer by his former supporters for his best display during the curtain raiser to the TNM Super League which begins next week.
