MTL sponsors MLS Annual meet
Malawi Telecommunications Limited (MTL) on 24th February 2016 presented a cheque worth K500, 000 towards the Malawi Law Society’s Annual General Meeting and Conference. This year’s event was themed “Regulation of Financial Institutions and the Protection of Consumer Rights”.
Speaking during the presentation MTL Chief Commercial Officer Gladson Kuyeri expressed appreciation for the partnership enjoyed with the body for the second year running and indicated a desire for its continuation.
“We are making this presentation as part of our Corporate Social Responsibility but we see this as an opportunity for a longer term partnership with the Malawi Law Society and we hope something comes out of this that cements our relationship with the body,” he said.
Receiving the donation was the Malawi Law Society (MLS) President John Suzi-Banda who expressed gratitude for the timely gift which he admitted would go a long way towards meeting the costs of the annual event.
“This is the second if not third time MTL has responded to our plea for help with our Annual General Conference. Their help is always timely and through such gestures they recurrently demonstrate that they are committed to the Malawian society and are friends of the legal fraternity,” said Suzi-Banda.
The MLS Annual General Meeting and Conference brings together lawyers and other professionals within Malawi to discuss in-depth the current regulatory regime and the protection of the rights of consumers of financial products and services. This year it took place from 25th to 28th February 2016.
