L Devraj, one of Malawi’s leading designer clothing shops based in the commercial city of Blantyre, has promised to continue supporting projects that have a positive impact on Malawian youths.
The pledge was made by the shop’s director Sanjay Savjani on Wednesday as he handed over shopping vouchers worth K75,000 to three journalists who were voted the best reporters in the just ended E-Wallet Talent Show, won by sensational 17-year-old singer Wakhumbachi Kalua.
The scribes include Nyasa Times’ own entertainment chief reporter and sub-editor Kimpho Loka for ‘Best Online Media Reporter’, Eerlene Chimoyo of Capital Radio for ‘Best Electronic Media’ and Blantyre Newpapers Limited’s Sam Banda Junior for ‘Best Print Media’.
“We have always supported E-Wallet from the onset because it is in our best interest to promote the youth of Malawi who are the future of this country,” said Savjani.
While congratulating the three scribes for the job well done in keeping the local public and the outside world with up-to-date information on the talent show, Savjani said “We will continue to support such projects for the betterment of youth development.”“Our aim is to impact the youth positively in international fashion as well as social-economic development,” he added.
In his words, E-Wallet Talent Show sponsorship director Godfrey Katsanga applauded Savjani for the role he has been taking in promoting the youth of Malawi through several programmes.
He asked the corporate world, especially shop owners in the major cities of Malawi, namely Blantyre, Lilongwe and Mzuzu to emulate L Devraj’s example of putting the welfare of Malawian youth at heart.
L Devraj has been in existence in Malawi since the 1960s and has been operating its shop which stocks European fashionable clothing for all age groups.
Apart from E-Wallet, the shop has also been supporting other youth events such as beauty, fashion and modelling pageants in the country.
