Nyasa Big Bullets suspended General Secretary Kelvin Moyo has asked the Malawi Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) to investigate Bullets’ match fixing allegations, Malawi24 can reveal.
Moyo was suspended by the team’ board of trustees for ‘insubordination’ on Sunday and was told to immediately handover all his responsibilities to his deputy until the whole issue is investigated.
But despite this, Moyo has urged ACB to investigate the matter saying match fixing is a very serious offence that needs not to be tolerated.
“I have been suspended for exposing acts of corruption by one of the trustees who told the technical panel before a match in Lilongwe not to worry because he had already fixed the match. So, I am urging the ACB to investigate this issue. Match fixing is a very serious offence that needs to be kicked out of our football.”
“I will not rest till the truth comes out because I have got all the evidence that this official from the board of trustees did this evil act so let ACB do their work,” he explained.
And reacting to Moyo’s sentiments, one of the members from the board of trustees Jim Kalua said the suspended General Secretary used the wrong channel in addressing the issue.
“Kelvin Moyo was holding a very important position at the club and he should have followed proper procedures in reporting the issue. Why was he reporting to the media before engaging the main executive committee of the Club? Does he report to the media? Match fixing is a very serious offence that needs not to be tolerated but still more, he was supposed to follow the right channel before taking the issue to the media,” said Kaluwa.
Officials from FAM and Super League of Malawi (Sulom) are yet to comment on the issue.
