Two of Blantyre football giants, Mighty BeForward Wanderers and Nyasa Big Bullets face each other on Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium in a friendly match aimed at raising funds to assist Bullets’ goalkeeper, Vincent Gona.
Gona requires K3.1 million to undergo an operation at Beit Cure on his hamstring injury.
“Whenever Bullets meet Wanderers it is not a friendly match at all because pride is at stake. We thank them for accepting our offer to play us as one way of fundraising for Gona who requires some money to undergo an operation on his hamstring,” he said.
Tewesa said despite missing some key players, who are with the Flames in Namibia they have enough contingent to deliver on Sunday.
The People’s Team contributed seven players to the Flames namely Chiukepo Msowoya, Muhammad Sulumba, Ernest Kakhobwe, Pilirani Zonda, John Lanjesi, Yamikani Fodya and Dalitso Sailesi.
On his side, Be Forward Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira said they are ready to face Bullets and also encouraged the Nomads fans to converge at the Kamuzu Stadium in their large numbers on Sunday.
“When they approached us on a fundraising friendly match we thought it wise to come to their rescue because we are like brothers. I can assure spectators that they should expect an entertaining encounter because for us we are not going to allow Bullets defeat us,” he said.
The Nomads will miss the services of Francis Mlimbika, Stanely Sanudi, Issac Kaliati, Rafiq Namwera and Peter Wadabwa who are with the Flames in Namibia.
