Stansfield’s Ronald Mollande told a local radio station, Star that his company pays taxes obediently.

Mollande said his company is involved in social services including paying of school fees for needy students at the Polytechnic and reforestation programme.

“We wonder therefore why there is this deliberate policy in government to marginalise us yet our vehicles are probably the best. The vehicles the government is currently buying need frequent mechanical checkups, ours do not need that,” he said.

Stansfield recently unveiled top of the range all either vehicles.

Meanwhile,  Renault, is back on the Malawi market following the return of the French car’s franchise deal to Stansfield Motors Limited.

@Advisory Committee: don’t mislead people here. What simple service costs K800,000+? If you don’t take your vehicle for regular service, and you once dream to take it for service, that’s what you get, whether it be Toyota, Nissan, Ford or Steed. A normal regular service should not cost you more than K150,000, that is if you take your vehicle for service after the regulated mileage. GWM is like any diesel propelled vehicle like Isuzu etc. By the way, who is Richard Mollande?
