Speaking during the cheque presentation, Cep Energy Limited National Sales Manager Ronald Banda said the support is an acknowledgement of the important role journalists and media houses play in the country.
“This contribution is our gesture of appreciation based on the long-term partnership that we are building with the media in the country which is part of an integral component in our business,” said Banda.
Banda said the company is looking forward to a stronger partnership with the media in the country.
“This is a beginning of our partnership with Blantyre Press Club. We believe in partnership because the country can only develop if we have the right information and for business to thrive, we rely on journalists to convey messages of products and services to the customers,” he said.
Blantyre Press Secretary General Simeon Shumba thanked CEP Energy for the support and appealed to companies and organizations to emulate the gesture.
“Blantyre Press Club is very humbled with this contribution from CEP Energy and it will go a long way to help us host this important meeting. Let me also take this opportunity to call upon companies and organisations to emulate this good gesture,” said Shumba.
Minister of Information & Communications Technology Nicholas Dausi is expected to officially open the AGM which is slated.
Blantyre Press Club is a grouping of journalists from the southern region, registered under the Trustee Incorporation Act.
