MAFCO’s misconduct put them in hot soup

MAFCO have been found guilty of misconduct after their officials assaulted a referee during a game against Nyasa Big Bullets at Chitowe stadium in Dwangwa on December 3.

According to a letter signed by Super League of Malawi’s (SULOM) general secretary Williams Banda, MAFCO have been charged with failing to control actions of players and officials contrary to article 21 sub section 3, 5, 6 and 7 and for bringing the league into disrepute contrary to article 21 (20) of Sulom  rules and regulations.

Mafco: Found guilty

According to Sulom, MAFCO officials and players beat up referee Easter Zimba who was later rescued by police and stewards.

“Players led by Zikhole Nguluwe, Calisto Kalinda, Dingiswayo Banda, and other unidentified players plus officials chased after, assaulted and beat up referee Easter Zimba after the final whistle before being rescued by police and stewards,” reads the letter.

MAFCO’s Martin Masoatheka assaulted referee Joseph Nyirongo who was injured on the left eye and was referred to hospital while Emmanuel Chipeta assaulted and slapped second assistant referee Hendrix Maseko.

“The conduct of your officials and players after the final whistle which forced the officiating crew to leave the stadium under police escort brought the game of football into disrepute,” Sulom says in the letter.

The Super League governing body has since given Mafco 48 hours to respond to the charges accordingly.

This is coming as the league is clicking to an end, and few weeks after Silver Strikers, Be Forward Wanderers, Blue Eagles and Kamuzu Barracks also incurred similar charges.

Mafco who have 43 points are on position six with 29 games played and are remaining with an away battle with Azam Tigers at the Chilomoni stadium in Blantyre.

  1. Frankly speaking, Sulom officials were not suppose to leave Ref amene uja officiating that game for 90minutes. But they were waiting to penalise Mafco’s anger after the game. Nxt time a Mafco, beat Sulom Officials plus Ref, ngakhale munamutikita pang’ono

  6. Civilised teams don’t abuse the officiating personnel whether they have been biased against them. They follow proper channels to seek justice.

  7. Afuse Ref yemwe adayimbila game ya SouthAfrica ndi Senegal FIFA idamuchotsa ntchito sangagwileso ntchito as a Referee, asamale ma Ref awutsiru ngati awa azaluza Certificate

  8. We need to find the route cause on why was the referee assaulted

    Much as I do not condone violence in football matches let alone beating and assaulting of referees we need to find out why only this referee was beaten.

    What if he provoked the situation himself by failing to apply the 17 rules of the beautiful game of football fairly..these are the questions that need answers ..It appears as if zinazi nzoziyamba dala because had it been that the referee had handled the game professionally I do not think this would have happened
    I rest my case
