Suspended Nyasa Big Bullets’ interim General Secretary, Kelvin Moyo, has threatened to reveal more in what is the latest twist to his claims that one of the team’s trustees was involved in match-fixing.
“I will drop bombs like [in] Hiroshima,” Moyo, who was suspended for not following procedures when making his allegations, wrote on his Facebook page yesterday. Moyo owned the post.
“Do not let a few individuals destroy the team. It is wrong. This team brought my dad [former Bullets defender, the late Henry Moyo] from the village to Blantyre. The weed should be weeded. I do not want Damiano Malefula, Charles Kagwa, Harry Waya and Henry Moyo to say ‘young man, why did you allow the team go down the drain.”
Victor Msowoya, vice-secretary to the Bullets’ board of trustees, yesterday said Moyo should be the first to know procedures for lodging a complaint.
“At no point did he refer the issue to his boss Mr Noel Lipipa, saying ‘there is an issue relating to trustees, please take it up’. We trusted him to run the club and he has never received any letter that we are unhappy with him. We are surprised that he is claiming that trustees have issues with him,” Msowoya said.
Through a letter dated November 25, 2016, Bullets suspended Moyo for leaking information pertaining to his match-fixing allegations to the press. While copying the letter to some members of the media, he gave the trustees a deadline to discipline the alleged match fixer.
“It is indeed surprising that amid the fact that you are holding a very esteemed position in the club you would have displayed absolute maturity by following procedures in raising up any of alleged matters for possible solution,” reads part of the letter, which Trustees’ Chairperson, James Busile and Lipipa signed.
Moyo was quoted as saying in The Nation’s edition of Monday that he had information about a trustee who told members of the team’s coaching panel, before a game in Lilongwe, not to worry because he had fixed the game.
“I have all the evidence and I fail to understand why they are punishing me for doing the right thing. Do they want us to entertain match-fixing and what message are we sending across?” Moyo told The Nation.
Yesterday, he told The Daily Times that he would divulge more details at an appropriate time.
Bullets have 48 points from 26 games while lying second on the 16-member TNM Super League table.
