Juju Claims Resurface As Makawa ShunThe Media.
There was drama at the Mzuzu stadium when a Silver Strikers player is alleged to have thrown a small pillow into the net for Mzuni FC just after the commencement of the second half of a Super League match played on Saturday.
Mzuni FC officials called the media and showed them a small pillow which a striker for the Central Bankers is said to have thrown into the net.
Efforts to probe more about the juju (small pillow) proved futile since the visibly angry Silver Strikers coach, Abasi Makawa refused to grant a post-match interview to the media.
The capital city giants Silver Strikers were held to a one all draw in a rather dull game which was played before a sizeable crowd which some says could be the reason to behave like that.
A reporter for one of the reputable media organization who did not want to be mentioned for fear of reprisals described Makawa’s altitude as strange and hostile to the world’s most popular sport.
“This is very strange in modern football, and apart from refusing to take our questions how can coaches be dressed like this as if they are welders?. And am sure one day a reporter shall be manhandled,” he said.
This is not the first time for Makawa to behave in such unprofessional manner as he is on record of even shouting at the media personnel when things did not go well with his side.
Super League of Malawi (SULOM) has always assured the media that all the ground rules at football matches whichamong other calls for the post-match interviews shall be enforced.
Surprisingly the Silver Strikers coach, Abasi Makawa who has one of the most expensive squads in the country’s eliteLeague could behave in such strange manner which a lot of soccer enthusiasts have condemned in strongest terms.
