BLANTYRE -- Big Bullets FC, one of the Malawi’s top teams, has come in the open to accuse their Mzuzu sub-committee of sabotage during a Carlsberg Malawi Cup game which they lost 2-1 to rookies Super Eagles Saturday at Mzuzu stadium.
Meanwhile the Northern region committee has been dissolved following the accusation and emergency meeting will be held Monday at Chenda Motel where supporters will elect new committee members.
The people’s team main executive said they were betrayed because of conflict of interest, claiming that the majority of those in the Mzuzu executive committee are benefactors of Super Eagles.
“We entrust them with all logistics in Mzuzu when Bullets FC is playing in Mzuzu. Yet there are sponsors of Super Eagles; we have been betrayed by our own people,” said Higger Mkandawire, clubs General Secretary Sunday.
Reports emanating from Mzuzu show that some members of the sub-committee openly broke away on the eve of the game to rally behind Super Eagles.
However one of the accused, Steve Kachimanga he was no longer a Bullets executive member, claiming he “resigned from the club way back.”
He said Bullets are just failing to accept that they were not good enough to beat Super Eagles.

Both Super Eagles and Karonga Vendors play in the Simama Northern Region Football Premier League Division and the vendors are the current leaders.
“If this team has reached this far, it means it’s a good team. We can not blame our loss on officiation or the condition of the pitch because we did not coordinate,” conceded Eliah Kananji, Blantyre United coach.
