“Hearing from commentators in various forums you will see that Unima has a voice and for us we will continue working with this institution for the socio-economic development of the country,” he said.

While it is a good gesture, I feel the amount is not fit for a bank. It’s like a person donating. Come on people, banks are reaping us day-in-day-out, why this meagre money for a big celebration?
