Mafco appeals!

69

The Football Association of Malawi (FAM) has confirmed that Mafco FC have made an appeal against the organizing committee’ decision to fine and ban three of its players and an official for the fracas that happened at Chitowe Stadium last week.

Mafco FC were fined K1.2 million while Richard Mbulu was banned for the rest of the season, with Paul Ndhlovu and Stain Malata being given a six match ban each for taking a leading role in assaulting Nyasa Big Bullets players.

The punishment was also extended to team manager David Gulaimfa who was given a three year ban from all football related activities for influencing the actions of his players to attack Bullets players who were training ahead of the 2016 Carlsberg Cup quarterfinal clash.

Mafco: Against the initial ruling.

However, the Salima based millitary side has appealed against the verdict to the FA’s disciplinary committee.

FAM General Secretary Suzgo Nyirenda told the local media that despite the appeal, the scheduled match between the two sides will still go ahead.

“They have appealed against the verdict to our disciplinary committee but the scheduled match will still go ahead until the appeal is held.”

“All the suspended players and an official will still not be part of the clash until the appeal is held,” said Nyirenda.

Mafco FC will pay K450 000 appeals fee as per article 15.1 of Carlsberg Cup Rules and Regulations before the disciplinary committee seats down to discuss the matter.

It was reported that three Bullets players were ambushed by the Soldiers who were not happy with the latters decision to train at the pitch hours before the match.

  1. Kkkkkkk mbulu did nothing, nothing under the sun is covered. You will see the real truth. Mbulu came to the scene after what you so called violence. It’s bullets prayers ewho are just trying to destroy mbulu image who they feel could be the best striker on the land for a good number of years . Just wait and see what God does.

Akadakhala kuti ma puleya a NBB sanabwezere sakanavulazidwa ayi. Kunena zoona munthu akamamenyedwa ndipo osabwerezera nkhondo sipita patali imatha popanda wina kuvulazidwa.

    • Waonetselatu kuti ndewu yapampira sunaiwonelepo,munthu amasinjidwa oti akukalelesa chifukwa chachizondi for example Fischer adamenyedwa coz amakamulandisa Chimzy.FAM idapeza Bullets kuti idalakwa ndipo nchimolo was worthy to 150.

    • iwe you dont even know what you are saying that i n court of law we call it,,,,SAFE DEFENCE,protecting the greater harm,thus what NBB was doing,,, wandisekesa bwanji #Maxton

  10. Lest we forget,,last year we lost a youth that was beaten by suspected soldiers while waiting to take his taxi home at chichiri shoprite,,,may his soul continue to rest in peace

  11. Football is for feet not hands or arms. If found using hand u receive punishment eg given free kicks,yellow cards,red cards and e.t.c so big up to FAM for that decision no more appealing no more healings.please officers send them to peace keeping they can do better

  12. VERDICT was not even tough reguarding what MAFCO players did, they showed irrisponsible behaviour and gave bad image among MALAWIANS so appealing doesnt change anything since this is not the first time, they did similar uncivilised to BEFORWAD WANDERERS

  13. FAM must reduce the punishment over Mafco striker Mbulu there’s no way an athelete can stay for three solid years without taking part in active competetion as if the crime was commited on match day just give the striker a stiff penalty fee & he continue taking part as one of sharp Flames strikers because we’re short of hitman in our Football National Team The FLAMES

    • Palibe kuchepetsa chirango,zimenezi asamajaire ndipo ena atengerepo lesson!! Kuno sitimadiziwa kuchemerera mpira, maiko aanzathu ochemerera matimu osiyana amatha kukhala stand imodzi koma palibe chomwe chmachtika. Kuno zingatheke suporter wa nyerere kukhala stand imodzi ndi suporter wa BB? Timphunzirepo kanthu ndponso zilango zachepa!

    • idiot, u must follow things in the right way without favour. mbulu being mdf soldier he knows how bad it is for some one to use weapon against. so what he committed crime and i wonder why he was given a fair judgement. no where in the world i heard that an athlet took a steelbar into the field of play to attack fellow athlets. what if some one died on that day at chitowe? and perhaps the victim bieng your brother, would u say that mbulu should have been given a fair punishment bcoz he’s a talented athlet? let’s not support evil at all cost.

    • luis suaraz was given a tough punishment, a ban and a fine millions of dollars for just a bite on another player. the judgement given by fifa at fifa world cup 2014. so how special is richard mbulu? coz those players he terrorised on that day, also have impact on malawi football. if u really support what mbulu did, just know that u are supporting evil, u r out of your mind and u r also under the devil’s influence like mbulu.

    • No Way!! The player deserves it…how could he even do such a thing? That should be an example to other players too…talkin abot flames players,amene alikowo amenya basi…all they need to do is sharpen them…this aint Wrestling,its football my freind!

    • Apa wonetsa kusamvesetsa kwako mix umbuli,Mbulu banned for 1 season and Gulaimfa is the one who banned for 3 yrs.I’m happy the way FAM handled this issue there was no fear or favour keep it up FAM
