A group of players at FAZ Division One North side Kalulushi Modern Stars have threatened to take legal action against the club over unpaid bonuses.

Over ten players claim that Modern Stars owe them winning bonuses for as many as 19 games.

The irate players on Monday stormed the Kitwe Labour Office to complain against Modern Stars.

“The club owe us monthly pay for three months and winning bonus for 19 games. We need help to get our money,” one player said on condition of anonymity.

“We went to the labour office in Kitwe today (Monday) and we now want to take the club to court,” another player added.

Kalulushi secretary Joe Silwamba referred all queries to club sponsors Chibuluma Mines.

“I have also heard such reports (players complaints) but I can’t comment.Maybe talk to Chibuluma Mines corporate affairs manager Margaret Zulu,” Silwamba said.

Both Modern Stars and Chibuluma Mines are facing well documented operational constraints.

Meanwhile, Kalulushi missed out on winning promotion to the Super Division on goal difference on the final day of the season.

  1. A few issues can be clarified here. 1. Chibu.lum.a is not the club sponsor (at least from my understanding) but committed to supporting the club with some finances in the 2015 season and so it was. 2. There is no Margret Zulu working for Chibu.lum.a Mines to the best of my knowledge. 3. Management at the club has always been kantankaras once the club got promoted to the super league football, spilling over from some individual behaviour of some executive members who became too clever and over looked the contributions of men who really did everything to get the the club to super league promotion (included in the sidelining was the coach..big jim and some players).
