Speaking after handing over the sites of Zingwangwa Money Men ground to Nyasa Big Bullets and the Kanjedza site to Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, the Minister of Labour, Youth, Sports and Manpower Development Grace Chiumia said President Mutharika is a man who fulfils his promises hence the handover of the sites. 
“The DPP led administration is committed to improve sports in the country and President Mutharika is a man of action. Some people were thinking the President’s directive was a mere political rhetoric but see now,” said Chiumia. 
Commenting on the development Chief Executive Officer for Nyasa Big Bullets Fleetwood Haiya described the fulfillment of the President’s promise as a dream come true.
“He is a listening President; he has listened to the cry for a stadium by the people’s team. Professor Mutharika really puts football at heart,” said Haiya.
Adding his comment Chairperson for Wanderers Gift Mkandawire commended President Mutharika for honoring his promise.
“We are so happy, Wanderers is the oldest club and it will now have its own stadium. We thank President Mutharika,” said the visibly happy Mkandawire.
Construction works for the two stadiums are expected to commence soon.
