Malawi’s entirely locally owned flourishing company, Mulli Brothers Limited has offered the national football side, the Flames MK1 million if the team qualifies into the quarter-finals of the ongoing Nations Cup tournament in Angola, Malawi Digest understand.

Speaking in a telephone interview with Malawi Digest on Sunday afternoon, Mulli Brothers Limited Managing Director Leston Ted Mulli said that his company has put on the table MK1 million.

“They will get the whole MK1 million and share it amongst themselves once the Flames qualify into the quarter finals,” said Mulli.

He said his company decided to make this huge pledge as a way of trying to motivate the players in order to go far in the competition.

“As a fully owned Malawian company, Mulli Brothers Limited has a social responsibility to pay back to the Malawian public through national causes like the Flames survival at this tournament in Angola,” he said.

Mulli, who was recently linked to a possible sponsorship to Malawi’s top football club, Big Bullets appealed to individuals and companies to emulate the good example set by his organisation.

“The Flames who are in Angola need our help and the time is now. If they get through, all Malawians will walk tall,” he said.

This is the second time that Mulli Brothers will be donating to the Flames within a month.

After qualifying for Angola 2010, Mulli Brothers Limited also donated MK1.5 million towards the Flames.

With three points already in their bag, the Flames are only a few steps away from the last group of eight.

However, standing in their way are the Eagles from Mali.

When the two teams meet in their final Group match in the enclave of Cabinda on Monday the Flames will have to aim at a win and nothing else if they are to be assured of a quarter final place

In their opening match, the Malawi Flames beat northern Africa giants Algeria by 0-3-Malawi Digest.
