PCL is no longer dual listed.

Bwana Mwadiwa, stopped the greed that is at PCL. The Group is in decline yet management gets bonuses sometimes K400 million for one executive.

Why should they get more than shareholders for very poor performance? They give each other bonuses even if the results are not satisfactory.

Moreover PCL is top heavy, there is no need for all those executives who have no business acumen.

Please investigate them!!!!!!

PCL has failed to live up to it’s expectations the last 12yrs, how do you explain about a conglomerate that has 15 companies, but only 2 companies are making profits in TNM and NBM? The leadership of Mathews Chikaonda, George Patridge has been a very big disappointment honestly, Kokoliko Holdings please fast track your conglomerate that should rival PCL which seems to have lost taste, PCL is the only company in Malawi which is more powerful than it’s rightful owner which is Press Trust, very useless leadership at press Trust, they don’t even know what they are managing, Press Trust… Read more »

Where else is press listed besides Malawi as of today?

I take it kulibe ka William kachichepere uku. We still with them old timers reciting John Smith nonsense. Everything is still manual. Good golly nyamayambuzi ndi marie sauce!!

Mwandiwa served on a number of boards with no mention of what he achieved. Nope, we are told he has all these degrees. (Nothing wrong with that koma investor samadyanawo degree). Carry on.
