Tanzanian club Mbeya City has agreed to pay Former Nyasa Big Bullets and  National Team Football Team mentor Kinnah electric Phiri about K11 million.

The club owes Phiri because it was failing to pay him during his time at the Tanzanian side.

Phiri travelled to Tanzania recently where he is said to have held fruitful discussions with Mbeya City which also involved officials from Malawi High Commission to Tanzania, Tanzanian Football Federation and the East African country’s External Affairs.
