…. declining performance linked to alleged infighting

Newly promoted First Division North league side Mbalakalungu which took the league by storm has of late started showing a declining performance and this is alleged to be due in-fighting.

The club is reportedly embroiled in tribalism and ownership saga and this has led to their former general manager, Tebogo Mokolwanyane tendering his resignation.   Mokolwane has since confirmed his resignation to Times Sport.

He claimed that issues of ownership and tribalism that has troubled the club has affected Mbalakalungu’s day to day management and operations, something he said he could not stand for hence parting ways with the team. Unconfirmed reports are that the club’s main sponsor is also contemplating to end the relationship.

Pressed further Mokolwanyane said he is not in the position to comment further on the issues because he is no longer part of the team, referring all the matters to the remaining club officials.

Reached for comment Mbalakalungu Chairperson Mwirima Jack Katanga confirmed that such allegations have reached their office but they are yet to receive any formal communications from the said persons. Therefore he cannot confirm nor deny the reports.

“We are going to meet with them today before noon and find the exact answer on that matter.”

He said the entire committee will be meeting and decide on the issue before it is communicated to the publication.

The team has dropped to the forth position in the log after occupying the second and first spot for the entire first half of the league and this has been due to their recent poor run of form. They lost 1-0 to Sankoyo Bush Bucks before their early exit from the Orange FA Cup last 48. The Plateau boys then registered a one all draw against Santa Green.

Mbalakalungu previously took First Division North League by storm after their promotion last season, collecting 24 points from their last 14 games winning 6 matches and drawing 6. Their supporters were hoping to maintain their fight for the regional play-offs at the end of the season.

The Plateau-based Rockies surprised many after leading the pack for a long period of the first round before Tafic overtaken them towards the end of last year and they are  now trailing behind with 6 points.

Having collected 24 points from 14 matches and sit at position four (4) on the table, Mbalakalungu’s position is threatened by Chadibe and Santa Green, who are in position two and three with 25 and 24 points respectively with only a point separating them with BR Highlanders, who are in 5th position with 23 points.

Tomorrow, Mbalakalungu will travel to Serowe to lock horns against Miscellaneous.
