BLANTYRE(MaraviPost)—Barely a day after Big Bullets’s top fan Isaac Jomo Osman announced his resignation from the team as main Supporters Committee chairperson, Rex Peter Mitochi, who was the leader of the Supporters Committee in the central region has also announced his resignation.
Speaking to ZBS during Sun Rise Malawi on Tuesday, Mitochi said his resignation has come due to the internal fighting in the Bullets family.
“It’s true that I have resigned from the team as chairperson of the Central Region Supporters Committee. I have done this after noting that what is happening in Bullets is contrary to my expectations.
“There are a lot of misunderstandings in Bullets and I’m not used to be in such groups. I believe in contact and dialogue but when the other side seems not to be interested in peaceful discussions, I have no option but to leave,” said Mitochi.
Mitochi, however, could not disclose what is really happening in the Bullets family saying the issues are internal and should not be taken to media.
His resignation comes a day after main Supporters Committee chairperson Osman announced his resignation while accusing Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote of plotting against his life after questioning the financial management of the team’s executive committee and handling of players’ transfer deals.
“I have resigned because some people in the executive committee particularly the General Secretary Mr Harold Fote is not happy with me,” Osman said.
Osman further said that the current executive committee led by Kondi Msungama as chairman was repeating the mistake of their predecessors on financial management.
“I have had enough of the club’s executive committee and some Bullets fans, who think I benefit from my position. If I try to ask them how they used the K25 million donated by Joyce Banda they get angry,” he said
Ironically, a week ago Msungama accused Osman of causing confusion in the team.
Among other things, the Bullets boss said Osman had been leading his fellow committee members to grab part of the team’s gate revenue from a number of matches including the game against Red Lions which was played at the Kamuzu Stadium.
