Former Big Bullets coach Edingtone Ng’onamo and his ex-assistant Gerald ‘Yellow man’ Phiri are in court battles with the 2014 TNM Super League champions following the sum of K1.506 million which they say were not paid between 2012 and 2013 when they were in charge.
Revelations indicate that the summons were filed through the High Court in Zomba.
Harold Fote, Bullets general secretary confirmed the development saying Ng’onamo and Phiri have sued the club for unpaid dues.
“The issue is being handled by our lawyer Felix Tandwe but the club’s position is that we are going to contest the suit because we do not have any records to show that we owe them any money,” he said.
Fote also argued that in the absence of contracts between the club and the two former coaches, there is no basis to justify their claims.
“We also wonder how they [Ng’onamo and Phiri] claim not to have been paid when other members of the technical panel who served under them such as team manager Noel Kawole and assistant coach Lloyd Nkhwazi were paid,” he said.
Efforts to talk to Ng’onamo and Phiri proved futile as their mobile phones went unanswered.
