Mighty Be Forward Wanderers’ expectations of claiming three points from the abandoned game against Mzuni FC on October 4 have been shattered following their failure to succeed in an appeal case to stop Super League of Malawi (SULOM) from reschedulling the match.
Be Forward Wanderers appealed against the verdict passed by SULOM disciplinary committee meeting held at Lilongwe hotel on November 7 2017, following a fracas which led to the abandonment of their TNM super league match at Balaka Stadium.
But following the committee’s hearing chaired by Happy Mkandawire on November 27, 2017, the panel maintained that all the two teams contravened both SULOM and FIFA’s disciplinary code of conducts hence the previous verdict be maintained and the match be replayed on December 10 at Civo Stadium.
Wanderers will also cough a fine of K1.1 million for failure to control the actions of its supporters and for bringing the league and the game of football into disrepute while Mzuni has been slapped K700, 000.
Another fate that has befallen the Nomads camp is the one game suspension imposed on their veteran, Joseph Kamwendo, for inciting violence and offensive behavior.
During the hearing Mzuni FC was represented by McNerbert Kazuwa, Maloto Chaura, Burton Chimango Phiri, Gerald Makokola, Acksoni Matamani and Vasco Cosmas. On the other hand Be Forward Wanderers was represented by Steve Madeira, Mike Butao, Valens Kamzere, George Naphambo and Chulu Nkangama.
The verdict comes barely two days after SULOM punished nine super leagues teams with a fine of K7, 244, 000 for various offences.
