Minister of Local Government, Unity and Culture, Richard Chimwendo Banda, Saturday donated K1 million to Chitipa United Football Club to alleviate some of the challenges the team is facing.

Banda also hosted the team to a luncheon on Sunday in Karonga on its way to base from Lilongwe after drawing 0-0 with Silver Strikers.

He said that he doesn’t want to see Chitipa United being relegated due to financial challenges, hence the donation.

“Chitipa United FC is displaying excellent soccer tactics and by defeating two local giants, Mighty Mukuru Wanderers and FCB Nyasa Big Bullets it’s no mean achievement. Today they drew with Silver Strikers,” Banda said.

He added that he will embark on an initiative to fundraise for the Lions of Chitipa so that the team is motivated and make to the top of the league.

Senior Chief Mwabulambya who received the donation on behalf of the team’s management, applauded Banda for good gesture, which he said is wealth emulating.

“On behalf of Chitipa United FC, let me thank Honourable Minister Chimwendo Banda for the donation, which will go a long way in easing some of the challenges the team is going through,” he said.

General Secretary for Chitipa United FC, Duma Ngoma, applauded Hon. Chimwendo Banda and appealed to companies and individuals to come forward and sponsor the team. It takes communities’ contribution for the team to fulfil its fixtures,” he said.

In June this year, Savenda Group of Companies donated K2 million to Chitipa United FC.
