The debate on who is to blame over the stampede at Bingu National Stadium led to social media speculation that stadium manager Eric Ning’ang’a has been transferred to Karonga district, reports he has downplayed.

Social media speculation revealed that Ning’ang’a was to be transferred to Karonga following preliminary findings by the police that stadium management is to blame for the stampede that witnessed eight soccer lovers mainly children losing their lives.

The police blamed management of Bingu National Stadium for the delay to have gates opened during early hours of the Independence Day to avoid the crowd that was too big for the gates of the stadium.

Police findings led to speculation that Ning’ang’a has been transferred as stakeholders demanded that those found in the wrong should face disciplinary action.

But Ning’ang’a downplayed the reports arguing he is still BNS boss as he has not received any communication on the matter.

“I don’t know about it, this is weekend, I get my letters during workdays and I don’t know why I should be transferred when there is an inquiry of what happened,” said Ning’ang’a.

He added that he is to welcome any decision made by authorities on the matter as he is a civil servant.

“I am a civil servant and it doesn’t affect my work at all, I was appointed stadium manager by authorities,” he added.

The stadium boss is on record to have blamed organizing committee of Malawi’s independence celebrations arguing they ignored his advice to have gates opened at 6am.

Ning’ang’a was appointed as Bingu National Stadium manager in August 2016.

  1. The way i understand it, Mr Ning’ang’a is mature and i like the way he handled the issue. As a parent he stood up and took the responsibility being the manager of the place. Mind you, there were organisers who were taking care of that function…i dont blame him….
