Ministry For Speedy Investigations On Bingu National Stadium Vandalism

By Romeo Umali, LILONGWE

Sports authorities in the country are demanding speedy and comprehensive investigations into vandalism of property during the controversial Airtel Top 8 Cup game at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe between Silver Strikers and Mighty Mukuru Wanderers.

Some Wanderers supporters went on rampage; damaging stadium property like chairs and pelting stones on the pitch in reaction to central referee, George Nkhakananga’s decision to award the hosts a goal despite earlier blowing the whistle for a foul.

Now, Secretary for Ministry of Sports, Isaac Katopola says they are disappointed with these reprehensible actions which could potentially lead to the stadium’s suspension, thereby jeopardizing the prospects of future sporting events.

In a strongly-worded statement, Katopola emphasizes the significance of stadium; being the only CAF/FIFA approved facility in the country.

“If it is vandalized and closed, or condemned by these bodies, the Malawi National Football Team, The Flames, will be playing its home and away games outside the country,” he argues.

Meanwhile, renowned sports analyst, Dan Chemis Makiyi has a word to all football enthusiasts in the country: “Everyone knows that football is an emotional game and whatever happens in the field of play, we must accept that.”

He has also called for referees’ consistency in officiating games.

The game ended 2-1 in favor of the Central Bankers but Football Association of Malawi said it would make its determination on the matter after getting reports from all stakeholders.
