Lions Club of Blantyre has a new president. He is George Chirombe who has taken over from Stain Singo.
Speaking during a power handover dinner on Friday, Chirombe said he was humbled over his election.
He said all the positions in the club are not campaigned for and his election demonstrates the level of confidence and trust the members have in him.
He said he will continue with all the projects which the club was doing under his predecessor’s reign.
“My fellow lions, you tolerate what you stand for. We will not tolerate seeing the less fortunate go blind due to preventable and treatable diseases. We will not tolerate seeing brilliant young girls failing to acquire education for lack of fees because that is not what we stand for,” he said.
Chirombe also hailed Singo for what he called a prosperous year of Lions Club under his watch.
On his part, Singo thanked his fellow lions for their unwavering support throughout his presidency.
“During my presidency, Lions Club carried out a number of projects as we tried to transform the lives of the underprivileged. As an immediate past president, I will continue to be an active member of the club helping my president to perform his duties to the best of my abilities,” he said.
National Bank of Malawi Chief Executive Officer, Macfussy Kawawa, who was the guest of honour, said he was privileged to be associated with Lions Club which he described as one of the largest humanitarian clubs in the world.
Kawawa said National Bank of Malawi will continue supporting Lions Club of Blantyre, saying the bank is a strong believer of helping the needy.
