LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-The current league leaders Blue Eagles FC have lodged a complaint to Super League of Malawi (SULOM) against the Centre Referee Chidziwitso Simbi who officiated their game against Nyasa Big Bullets FC on Saturday at Nankhaka Stadium.

As per letter which has been signed by the Vice general Secretary for the area 30 outfit Superintendent Solomon Gomezgani Mchawi, Simbi awarded a dubious penalty to Nyasa Big Bullets FC and denied the cops a clear penalty when a Bullets player had handled the ball in the penalty box.

Blue Eagles unhappy with referee Simbi

The letter is requesting the Referee’s Association not to give the said referee any game involving Blue Eagles unless their grievances are looked into.

Mchawi, Vice general Secretary for the committee, has confirmed about the development.

“I can confirm that we have written the letter to SULOM and copied to Referee’s body against Mr Chidziwitso Simbi who officiated our game against Bullets on Saturday. It was a poor officiation,he awarded our counterparts a dubious penalty and denied us a clear one.

“This is not the first time he has spoiled our game and has been heard for several times saying Blue Eagles FC can’t win any match when I am officiating,we have evidences for this. The referee was so incompetent and was not supposed to be given that game”,Mchawi said.

On his part Chairman for Referee’s body Chris Kalichero acknowledged receiving the letter but asked for some time for the body to comment on it.

That match ended in a one all stalemate, John Malidadi Jnr and Babatunde Adepoju scored for the two teams respectively.
