“When we looked at this theme, as the ‘Bank of the Nation’, we thought we should come in and support this AGM and conference because we believe that for all the plans that the African continent and indeed our own country has made, the law should take its course. We are now talking of the Malawi 2063 goals; we cannot achieve these if there are no laws or if the law is not respected hence our support to this conference.”

“NBM plc, as the Bank of the Nation, prides itself in being the bank that respects the rule of law and champions a better life for Malawians through various products and services that we offer and also the numerous corporate social events that we give out to the community. As a Bank we do all this so that come 2063, we should achieve our goals and aspirations of making Africa and Malawi a better place for everyone,” said Mitole.

MLS Chief Executive Officer Mzati Mbeko thanked NBM plc for the support saying it will go a long way in making the AGM and conference a success.

“We are delighted to receive this cheque from NBM plc and we are thankful for this gesture from The Bank of the Nation. We all appreciate that the economy is bad in all sectors and to get financial support of K2 million is a wonderful gesture. We do not take this for granted. NBM is a trusted partner and we cherish this partnership that we have,” said Mbeko.“`
