Despite the People’s team Big Bullets putting up a gallant fight to win Zambezi Challenge cup by beating Caps United of Zimbabwe, information sourced by Malawi-Sports.com has revealed that the game was a friendly one.
Two goals from Fitcher Kondowe and Chiukepo Msowoya from each half were enough for the People’s team to dislodge the visiting team which pulled one back to make 2-1.
Speaking after the game, Zambezi Challenge cup Chairman Kelvin Moyo said the game was no longer a Cup final as earlier announced and that Caps United are still cup holders despite the 2-1 loss.
Moyo attributed the abrupt change to failure by the People’s team to honour the Cup rules.
“We work under rules, hence Big Bullets took us for granted, they were supposed go to Lilongwe to meet Caps United but they delayed the match by saying they can’t make it to Civo stadium as they were tired, this act is against our rules as such they forced us to make the game friendly,” Moyo said.
On his part, Bullets chairperson Kondi Msungama could not hide is anger, saying this is so unfair for the organizers to change tune at the 11th hour.
“After most of our defenders were left injured in the last game one comes in to tell us it was a friendly one. It is very painful hence we can’t say much but only God knows,” Msungama said.
Moyo, however, thanked all the teams and supporters for taking part in the match.
“As organizers we are happy to see that the two teams had a very wonderful game and they thanked BB for imaging as the champions in the match,” he said.
Big Bullets FC won 2-1 against the Zimbabweans team Caps United.
