Salima Sugar, Wanderers deal goes sour


Barely two weeks after the Salima Sugar company announced its withdrawal from Mighty Wanderers, the Nomads are demanding K30 million from the company from contract between the two parties.

Salima Sugar described the decision to stop sponsoring Mighty Wanderers as a business decision. However, two weeks later the company announced that it would start sponsoring Dedza Dynamos.

Mighty Wanderers secretary to the board, Humphrey’s Mvula said Salima Sugar failed to honour the payment of K30 million.

Mvula told the daily times, “we were supposed to be receiving K5 million per month, we, therefore, demand that the company should find ways of paying us as agreed in the contract we signed with them.

” Salima Sugar is free to sponsor any team of its choice but what bothers us most is the callous manner of dumping us. The company owes us money for period between January and March from the previous contract and from April to June for the new contract.”

Mvula said Wanderers and Salima exercised to renew the contract in Lilongwe in January, hence their demand of understanding dues.

“I was at the signing ceremony myself alongside fellow directors Clement Stambuli and Mervis Mangulenje. So the company should find an amicable way of sorting out this matter,” Mvula said.

He described the company’s decision to start bankrolling Dynamos as being dishest to a big team like Wanderers. Mvula said their decision will affect their business.

“It would have made sense if the company had dumped us for a team like Nyasa Big Bullets. What Salima has done will affect its business because we are a big fish with a support base of over five million across the country. You do not dump such a big football constituency just like that. Do you?” Mvula asked.

When asked to comment on the matter, Salima Company Secretary Charles Thupi expressed ignorance over the matter.

“Let me check when I get to the office. I am now travelling from Dedza to Lilongwe. I will get back to you later,” Thupi told the daily times.

Salima Sugar were conspicuously absent from Wanderers’ sponsorship signing ceremony with financial services provider Mukuru at Mpira Stadium in Blantyre.
