TNM aids students


Malawi’s integrated mobile network and ICT service provider, TNM, has donated K2.5 million to second year Bachelor of Medicine Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS) students at the College of Medicine to enable them undergo clinical practicals

The 87 students will this August start their clinical practicals at Kamuzu Central Hospital in Lilongwe and will need medical kits.

Speaking during the cheque presentation, TNM Human Resource Manager, Mike Butao, said the support is an acknowledgement of the important role that the students will play in the country after undergoing the practicals


“As a truly Malawian company, we felt obliged to support the students for the smooth running of their studies which at the end will have greater impact on the country,” Butao said.

Butao said TNM was moved by the students’ initiative to raise money through providing health checks to the public.

“We felt it was necessary to complement their efforts,” he said.


In his remarks, Chairperson of the students, Mackson Zephaniah, thanked TNM for the contribution.

“We are very grateful to TNM for this donation. When we wrote them the proposal, we did not expect to get this much from them in exchange for the services we provided. This is a big surprise to us and we are happy,” Zephaniah said.

The medical kits that are required include stethoscopes, BP cuffs, patella hammers and tuning forks, at a total cost of K65,000 per student.
