…suspends General Secretary for insubordination
With fewer games to play before the closure of the season, TNM Super League defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets camp has been hit with a match fixing scandal, Malawi24 can reveal.
According to media reports, one of Bullets’ trustee (name withheld), told the technical panel before Silver Strikers match in Lilongwe not to worry because he had already fixed the match but this did not go well with General Secretary Kelvin Moyo who openly told the executive that he was not happy with the development.
Immediately, Moyo was suspended by the executive committee for ‘insubordination’ and was told to hand over power to his vice till the whole issue is investigated.
But reacting to the development, Moyo said he was surprised with the decision to have him suspended without proper reasons.
“Yes, I have just been told about my suspension but on what grounds? For exposing acts of corruption by a trustee? “Here is a trustee who told members of the coaching panel before a match in Lilongwe not to worry because he had fixed the match and I have all the evidence and I fail to understand why they are punishing me for doing the right thing. Do they want us to entertain match-fixing and what message are we sending?” Moyo was quoted by the Nation newspaper.
Moyo has also been accused of taking Bullets’ issues to the media without consulting fellow executive members.
