Things seem to never change in Nyasa Big Bullets camp as the club is failing to pay some of its players signing on fees amounting to more than K40 million despite clinching a lucrative five-year deal with Nyasa Manufacturing Company Limited of about K500 million.
Now in-house fight has broke out as the affected players are pushing to pocket their money which was supposed to be paid before the kick off of the new season.
Surprisingly, the club managed to pay new signed players before the beginning of the season who include John Lanjesi, Emmanuel Zoya from Civo, Mike Mkwate from Wizards, Ernest Kakhobwe from Azam Tigers, Muhammad Sulumba, George Nyirenda, Amadu Makawa and Kondwani Kumwenda.
Acting General Secretary Kelvin Moyo confirmed owing the players over K40 million in signing on fees but denied selective payment of the signing on fees.
Meanwhile, the cub in a desperate move, has gagged its entire team from speaking to the media by forcing them to sign a code of conduct and only Captain Chiukepo Msowoya is allowed to do so.
However, midfielder and former captain Fischer Kondowe has acted otherwise. He granted the media an interview in which he accused some member of the technical committee of trying to ‘finish him off’.
Kondowe on Wednesday rebuffed the club’s disciplinary committee set up to hear a case in which he is being accused of breaching the club’s code of conduct.
The disciplinary panel, comprising acting general secretary (GS) Kelvin Moyo, technical director Billy Tewesa, assistant coach Mabvuto Lungu and supporters chairperson Stone Mwamadi were left shock shelled when refused to face them, saying they are ones who have a vendetta against him.
