Speaking at Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe, BAM President Phillip Madinga, said as an association, they found it imperative to physically meet the President.

“We came to condole with the President on the tragic plane crash which claimed the life of Dr Saulos Chilima and eight others. We also used the opportunity to console him as you know this month of June, 17 other people also lost their lives in various accidents across the country so it’s a difficult time for the President hence our coming,” said Madinga.

Madinga further said BAM used the opportunity to introduce its new executive to the first citizen.

In his remarks, Presidential Press Secretary, Anthony Kasunda said the death of Dr. Chilima has had a traumatising effect on the President and the coming of BAM provided some relief.

“The President worked closely with Dr. Chilima.The President needs support, such as that which was offered by the financial institutions through Bankers Association of Malawi. The Bankers Association of Malawi took advantage of the interface to also assure the President of their commitment to supporting various government initiatives that the Chakwera administration is implementing. And one example is the ATM strategy,” said Kasunda.

Late Dr. Chilima and eight others died in a plane crash on 10 June 2024 in Chikangawa Forest. The country is currently observing 21 days of mourning.
