Civil service united football club assistant coach Elia Kananji says he has been told to wait until the coronavirus pandemic end for him to receive his k1.7 million Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers football clubs owe him.
Bullets are yet to pay Kananji k800 000 while their arc rivals Wanderers owe their former employee k900, 000 wages dating back to 2016 and according to the former Blantyre United coach, he had an opportunity to meet with both sides to discuss the issue and has been assured to be sorted out once COVID-19 is over.
“I had an opportunity to meet Mr Fleetwood Hayiya of Nyasa Big Bullets and vice chairman of Be Forward Wanderers Mr Chris Kananji and both of them have assured me that I will receive the money once the COVID-19 pandemic is over. I was supposed to have received the money a long time ago but the two clubs failed to honor their agreements and my legal team led by Mr Kondie Msungama is handling the issue,” he said.
Kananji helped Nyasa Big Bullets to win the Carlsberg Cup in 2014 before helping Wanderers lift the trophy the following year.
