ACB in Malawi is a waste of time. I would not support.

Be warned: Malawian Asian entities that have a penchant taste of paying bribes to revenue collectors with a view that tax assessments of its company are lowered should not dare make a donation. ACB will reject it outright!!!

This is commendable TNM. However, I wish you had supported the conference in kind and not with cash. Mark my word, the money you donated will be abused. Perhaps if ACB were truly INDEPENDENT.
