Reserve Bank of Malawi (RBM) Socials on Saturday, February 4, 2017 unveiled a K2 million worth brand new kit, which the Lilongwe based club recently bought from South Africa.
The Puma branded uniform, which has personalised jerseys for all the 70 members of the club has been purchased through individual contributions from the membership, comprising RBM staff and professionals from other public and private institutions.
The unveiling ceremony of the uniform took place at the club’s home base- Silver Stadium, where the club played a social friendly match against Mponela Water Board Socials.
RBM Socials won the match 4-0 through goals from Jack Msosa, Lawrence Yobe, Wesley Njete and Fred Karonga.
Speaking in an interview with Nyasatimes, club patron MacDonald Mafuta Mwale described the unveiling of the new uniform as another milestone in the club’s history.
“This is a major milestone in the history of this club.
We are probably the most united and organised social football club Malawi.
“It’s not the first time members of this club have contributed towards a common cause. We have been engaging in charitable activities like cheering the sick in hospitals and visiting prisons. We have also been donating uniforms to other football teams,” said Mwale, flanked by his deputy Henry Chowawa and club chairman Yobe.
Outlining some of the plans for this year, the officials said the club would be visiting Lusaka, Zambia during the Easter festive for social friendly games against Zambia`s Central Bank and other Zambian social teams.
The officials further said the club would join all natinal competitions including Carlsberg Cup and FISD Challenge.
Last year, the team registered for the Presidential Cup and managed to reach the second round.
The club is run by a board of trustees comprising Mwale and Chowawa as patrons, Yobe and vice chairman Msosa.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
