TNM plc and NBS Bank have partnered Mzika Flood Response to organised a two-day charity bonanza dubbed Pamtsetse Football Bonanza slated for March 12 at Bingu National Stadium.

The bonanza will involve TNM Super League champions Nyasa Big Bullets, runners-up Silver Strikers, third-placed Mighty Wanderers and fourth-placed Civil Service United.

It is aimed at raising funds for survivors of Tropical Storm Ana, which hit 15 districts in the country.

Addressing the media in Lilongwe Thursday, TNM Chief Channels Officer Phyllis Manguluti said the company was proud to be part of the good cause.

“This is a great initiative and we are always ready to support it,” Manguluti said.

Through the partnership, TNM is facilitating and managing the bonanza as long-time Super League sponsors.

During the two-day bonanza, fans will get K1,000 worth of airtime at the entrance for two days.

Meanwhile, NBS Bank, as partners in the bonanza, will bank all the proceeds of the two-day event. The fans will pay K3,000 as entry fee to watch two matches per day.

NBS Bank Corporate and Investment Banking Manager Jocelyn Kumwenda said the initiative was worth supporting.

“As a caring bank, we want to ensure that Malawians have good support from us all the time,” Kumwenda said.

Gift Nankhuni, who is spokesperson for organisers, appealed to the companies and individuals to support the initiative.

“We have received a positive response and we need to join hands to achieve our target,” Nankhuni said.

Mzika Flood Response is targeting to raise between K10 million and K30 million during the two-day event.

The grouping has also urged people to donate items such as food and clothes.

On his part, Football Association of Malawi General Secretary Alfred Gunda said the association altered the football calendar due to the importance of the bonanza.

“Football is a unifying factor. The value of the game is what we are seeing and we appreciate the recognition. We try our best to deliver a good event,” Gunda said.

Tropical Storm Ana destroyed properties, washed away crops, left 900,000 people destitute and 46 people dead.
