Despite having been given a suspension letter Big Bullets FC head of marketing Dan Mbebuwa said he will continue to operate at the club.
Sources gathered by Malawi-Sports indicate that Bullets board of trustees suspended Mbebuwa for reportedly failing to submit a detailed financial report on the proceeds of marketing activities.
Confirming of the development Mbebuwa said the issue is still under consultation and as such, he is still carrying out his duties.
Initially Mbebuwa said the issue is still under consultation and as such, he is still carrying out his duties.
Bullets trustees’ general secretary Jim Kalua confirmed Mbebuwa’s suspension, but was quick to say it was an internal matter.
According to the letter Mbebuwa among other issues was asked to account for proceeds from the TNM SapotaMapeto promotion, airtime cards from TNM, membership drive and any other income-generating activities conducted on behalf of the club.
However, speaking with Mbebuwa in an interview he insisted that he is still in charge as he had a justifiable reason as to why he could not meet the trustees’ deadline to submit a report.
“I have written them [trustees] outlining why I have not submitted the report. The thing is that I was very busy planning the team’s trip to the Comoros. I was virtually working round the clock, so, I have asked for a bit more time,” said Mbebuwa.
Bullets chairperson Kondi Msungama said he was yet to get a copy of Mbebuwa’s suspension letter, but said Mbebuwa needed to be given more time to come up with a concrete report.
