Malawi’s integrated mobile network and ICT service provider TNM has contributed K1.5 million to the Blantyre Press Club in support of the grouping’s Annual General Meeting slated from October 8, 2016 in Mangochi.
Speaking during the cheque presentation, TNM’s Senior Manager – Consumer Services Madalitso Jonazi said the support is an acknowledgement of the important role journalists and media houses play in the country.
“Journalism is very important to our society and economic development in general. Journalists are the eyes and mirrors of a country as they provide objective views about the society by reporting on a wide range of socio-economic issues. TNM as a home-grown Malawian company is proud and humbled to be contributing financially towards the upcoming AGM for Blantyre Press Club,” he said.
He noted that TNM enjoys working with journalists and that the support is a confirmation of cordial working relationship.
“We would like to appreciate the support that TNM receives from the media. The country can only develop if we have the right information and TNM relies on the journalists to convey messages of its tailor-made products and services to the general public,” he said.
In her remarks Blantyre Press Club Executive Member Ida Kazembe thanked TNM for the support.
“Blantyre Press Club is very humbled with this contribution from TNM and it will go a long way to help us to host this important meeting. We would like to appreciate the support that TNM is giving us because this is the third time that the company has come into our rescue to support the AGM which is clear demonstration that indeed TNM is ‘Always with us’,” said Kazembe.
Blantyre Press Club is a grouping of journalists from the southern region, registered under the Trustee incorporation Act.
