Bullets players demand the head of Sam Chilunga

He came in like the promised Messiah but months into his tenure as Big Bullets Chairman, Sam Chilunga has been told to pack up and go by his own players.

Chilunga’s led executive committee was given until June 30 to settle down Players’ signing on fees balances but nothing happened, forcing the players to boycot Tuesday’s training ahead of their two crucial Super League games away in Lilongwe this weekend.

And speaking to the media on Tuesday afternoon, the team’s captain Chiukepo Msowoya demanded for the removal of Chilunga and the entire executive committee from their positions until an Annual General Meeting (AGM) takes place for new leadership at the club.

Chilunga faces rejection.

“We don’t want the executive committee to continue serving the club. For now, let the supporters committee take over from Sam Chilunga until the AGM takes place for a new leadership at the club,” he said.

On their sponsorship deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company, Msowoya said the development had nothing to do with their sponsors.

“We are not focusing on the sponsors but the supporters. They have been taking care of us for all these year and I know they can do better than the executive committee so this has got nothing to do with them,” he said.

Bullets players are claiming a K43 million signing on fees from their executive committee plus another K8 million from game allowances. Meanwhile, the team’s supporters have pleaded with their sponsors to rescue the situation saying things are getting out of hand.

The defending league champions are struggling for form in the top flight and if they are to defend the title, they must collect something from their next two away from home fixtures.

Chilunga, who took over from Kondi Msungama, is currently outside the country and is yet to comment on the matter.

Bullets clinched a K0.5 billion five year sponsorship deal with Nyasa earlier this year but the sponsors are believed to have distanced themselves in this latest saga.
