By Edwin Mbewe

LILONGWE-(MaraviPost)-Civil Servants who were detained for questioning have escaped in the lawful custody at Area 30’s Nankhaka stadium.

The officers from Capital Hill were at the National Police Headquarters for the offences they committed last year 2021.

The cops called the Servants for questioning but as soon as the interrogations started Cops felt dizzy and slept on duty giving room to the suspects to escape.

It was a game of few chances on Wednesday afternoon at Nankhaka Stadium between Blue Eagles FC and Civil Service United.

The visitors started on a high note than the hosts.Civil pushed for early goals through Arnold Masamba and Christopher Kumwembe but didn’t come.

Blue Eagles FC who wanted to revenge from last season damage tried to push for an early goal too but their center attackers Micium Mhone and Gaddie Chirwa lacked coordination not only that but also their midfield was disjointed making their opponents closing all spaces.

At half it was nil nil between the two sides despite chances from Arnold Masamba at 27th minute for Civil and Gilbert Chirwa for Blue Eagles FC.

At 48th minute Oswald Maonga cleared the ball from Christopher Kumwembe as it was going direct into the net when Brighton Munthali was already beaten.

The game produced three yellow cards,two to Blue Eagles FC Ganizani James and Jacob Robert while Chikaiko Batison was booked for Civil.

As things seemed not to be working for both sides, technical panels made some changes Eliah Kananji for Eagles took out Oswald Maonga, Micium Mhone, Laurent Banda and Maxwell Trouble Banda for Ganizani James, Arthur Moffat and Maxwell Salambula while Civil Service United brought in Luke Chima, Victor Lungu and Juma Yatina for Christopher Kumwembe, Innocent Tanganyika and Daniel Kumwenda.

The changes, however, paid no dividend to both sides as they continued struggling to create and get chances.

Civil could have scored in the dying minutes through substitute Luke Chima but didn’t take his heart as he shot over the cross bar at 90th plus 2 minute.

Until referee Jimmy Phiri blew the whistle to end the match and yes the Servants comfortably escaped from lawful custody.

The result means Blue Eagles FC have failed to open a 3 point gap against defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets FC hence creating a 1 point gap.

They have now collected 27 points from 11 games,winning 8 and 3 draws against Bullets FC, Dedza Dynamos and Civil Service United while Civil have 11 points now from 10 games occupying position 9.

Gabriel Chirwa, Civil’s team Manager, said in a post match interview that getting a point away from home is a plus to them though they needed the maximum points.

He further added that currently there is nothing to worry about Civil going to relegation vowing to improve and finish on a better position.

Blue Eagles FC Coach, Eliah Kananji, thanked God for the encounter against Civil adding a point will help them in the near future.

He proceeded by applauding his charges for playing well and admitted they missed captain Schumacher Kuwali.
