Nyasa Big Bullets football club board members are doubtful if the team’s sponsors Nyasa Manufacturing company (NMC) will fulfill all the agreements that were signed in the memorandum of understand (MOU) in 2018.
As part of the MOU, the tobacco manufacturing company was expected to build a stadium and two club houses for the club as well as buying a luxury bus which are yet to be fulfilled raising doubts as they remain with only two years of the agreed five years.
One of Nyasa Big Bullets board members Chifundo Makande said they are yet to see if their sponsors will manage to do what they signed for but with the remaining time there is no hope and there are questions why the board has not been meeting.
“We are supposed to be meeting every four months to assess how things are with the club but the last time we had a board meeting was in 2018 where we helped much during the commercialisation period but for now we are not part and parcel of any decision being made at the club.
“We are happy the team is being run professionally but with the two years remaining of the five years it is not possible to build a stadium and two club houses as well as buying a bus but let’s wait as to how they will sort it out,” said Makande.
Responding to the concerns Nyasa Manufacturing Company (NMC) president Konrad Buckle said, “A brand new bus is coming but has been delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. As for the stadium, the government gave us land which we will use to construct the stadium and we are considering to build the club houses.”
