TNM has made a donation of MK2,366,390 to the Golf Union of Malawi that will enable the national golf team compete at this year’s Zone VI international tournament in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Chief Commercial Officer Charles Kamoto on Wednesday presented the donation to Golf Union President Gabriel Kambale and reaffirmed the mobile network providers’ continuing support to the development of golf in Malawi.
Said Kamoto; “Being the largest sponsor of golf through the Malawi Golf Open, TNM remains firmly committed to the sport. Today’s donation is only a continuation of the traditional support TNM renders to golf union and this support is there to stay.”

TNM has decided to play its humble part by providing financial support that we hope will inspire the national team surpass its 2013 performance. As you fly out to Stellenbosch, TNM will be with you,” said Kamoto.
