FDH did not necessarily make profits. but benefited from the free acquisition of MBS bank and is benefiting from being used by government cheques. Lets wait and see what happens when government changes on May 21

Mr. Pelekamoyo you failed as Executive Chairman of OIBM and you have failed too at NFB and even at Times Group where you also the Chair the company is technically bankrupt. Your only turn around strategy when a business is posting losses is to sell it out? FDH made a loss in 2017 but made a huge profit after tax of MWK6 billion in 2018 – thats what we call a viable turn around strategy
