This bank only employs Indians like Kadankat to top managerial position. Racists. They never trust an indigene Malawian. Crooks No 1.

No doubt you mean Thomas Kadandat, Yes he has been renewing his work permits for last 20 years. This bank does not trust Malawian employees. Close the bank down.

The profit looks too big for our economy, are the customers not being ripped?

The profit would have been more if they had not bought an aircraft worth 1.2 million dollars and parked at Chilkha. They pay huge parking fees. Even NBM or Sb dont own aircrafts. No wonder they do not declare dividends for last four years
