Former Big Bullets Chairman Kondie Msungama has said that he is still a Bullets lover and that he is ready to offer his support whenever need be despite the fact that he has been forced to throw in the towel by a cross section of supporters.
All is not well in the Bullets camp as Kondie Msungama and Head of Marketing Daniel Mbebuwa dropped their resignation letters during a news conference which was held at Alendo Hotel in the Commercial City of Blantyre lately.
The fans are said to have accused Kondie and some of his committee members of abusing funds collected during the game against Fombomi in the first leg qualifier of the CAF Club Championships played at the Kamuzu Stadium in the city of Blantyre.
Local media reports indicated that over K20 million was raised but only less than K15 million was accounted for by the team officials.
“I think I have done my part by among other achievements winning the Carlsberg Cup, the TNM Super League and ensuring that the team took part in the Confederation of African Football (CAF) although we were eliminated by Al Halal of Sudan.
“However, despite all this I have been subject to castigation by a cross section of fans so I think I cannot continue. I have sacrificed my personal resources feeding the club for the good part of the past season and many other things,” he said.
Quizzed whether he was quitting because of heavy debts incurred during his time in office including air tickets which were used for the team’s travel to Sudan, Msungama had this to say, “I am not leaving because of those debts. I believe that those who are running the show now have got the capacity to find means to pay back the debts”
Meanwhile, Msungama has said that he is still a Bullets supporter and will always make sure to support the team in future.
“I have always been a Bullets supporter and my resignation today does not necessarily mean that I am out of the Bullets family for good. I will always be there to see that the team does well in future seasons,” he said.
Meanwhile, the Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote who was present during the news conference has said that there is no any arrangement for the club to convene an Annual General Meeting in due course as claimed by some fans on various local broadcasting houses and newspapers.
