Mzuni FC players have sued the team’s former sponsor Mzuzu University for failing to pay them arrears amounting to K13 million.
According to a source at the club who did not want to be named, the players have taken action after failing to get their money.
“The case is in court. Now we want them to pay the arrears amounting to K13 million this includes game bonuses allowances and other things,” he said.
Chairperson for Mzuni Fc Albert Mtungambera Harawa said he could not comment since the issue involves players.
“I just heard the players have taken Mzuni to court over last season’s unpaid bonuses,” said Harawa.
The university stopped sponsoring the club earlier this season saying it wants its team to comprise students only.
Management of the club decided not to disband the club which is still participating in the Super League.
Last month, Mzuzu University told the club to change its name and stop using Thengere ground, but the club refused to do so saying the university should first pay the players their money.
