Bishop Abraham Simama has promised to sponsor Karonga United Football Club after being dumped by Willy Yabwanya Phiri, left the team with a deep financial wound.
Karonga was about to pull out of participating in TNM Super League as they were in financial crisis. Yabwanya stopped financing the team in the position of its desperate need of support.
Yabwanya has added more fuel to the fire, as he has formed a new team which is called Karonga Giants FC. This really frustrated the Karonga United in general.
The newly appointed Karonga United Chairperson Alufeyo Chipanga said they do regret the resignation of Yabwanya.
However, the recent development indicates that Bishop Simama has come to their rescue. Following that, Karonga fully returns to Super League and proudly starts their first match in this coming weekend.
General Secretary of Sulom, Williams Banda also confirmed that Karonga is going to start participating Super league matches prior to the beginning of next weekend.
