Blantyre Mayor’s Trophy gets FDH’s K4.8 million


One of the country’s commercial banks, FDH, has committed K4.8 million towards this year’s Blantyre City Mayor’s Trophy.

The donation was all Blantyre City Council needed to have the competition started over the weekend after delays due to funding hiccups.

According to council authorities, the competition required close to K20 million to commence.


The competition has, of late, enjoyed support from companies and organisations which enabled organisers to start the games which involve primary schools around the city.

FDH Bank Head of Government and International Organisations, Alfred Nhlema, said the support is in line with the bank’s commitment to youth development.

Nhlema said the bank realized that there was a financial need that required an intervention; hence the donation.


“We saw it fit to partner Blantyre City Council in this initiative. We believe in youths development and such initiatives are ideal,” Nhlema said.

Blantyre City Counc Deputy Mayor, David Makwinja, commended the bank for the gesture, saying the funds would help in addressing the competition’s funding gaps.

“We are very happy and relieved. This donation will help in making the Mayor’s Trophy an even better competition”, he said.
