A disciplinary committee of the Super League of Malawi (SULOM) comprising Trouble Kalua, Godfrey Taumbe and Khwima Mchinzi, Eagles have been found guilty on three counts in relation to incidences that took place on the said date.

The report indicates that the match took an ugly turn when Ekwendeni scored a goal through Blessings Singini and when the referee blew the final whistle to mark the end of the match, selected Blue Eagles players and officials attacked the officiating panel and they had to be rescued by security personnel.

On the charge of failure to control actions of officials and players, the Police side have been given a maximum fine of K1, 500,000 while five players have been charged K500, 000 each for assaulting match officials.

In the charge of bringing the game into disrepute, assistant coach Christopher Sibale has been fined K500, 000.

The SULOM disciplinary committee has further banned Ranken Mwale for 4 league games for his deplorable conduct and starring role in the whole fracas.
