Luhana, who has just sat for Junior Certificate Examination (JCE) at Mnjiri Community Day Secondary School is one of the 50 TNM customers that won a total of K100 million in the [email protected] promotion that TNM conducted in 2014 to celebrate the country’s 50th Independence anniversary.


Each of the winners was required to choose a social responsibility project of choice worth K2 million, translating to K100 million.


Speaking after the handover ceremony of the houses, Luhana said she was delighted to assist the community through TNM’s promotion.


“I’m very happy that through TNM’s Ufulu @50 promotion I have been able to make a difference to my community by constructing teacher houses. Lack of teacher houses remains a major challenge especially for rural schools,” she said.

The school head teacher Hillen Jeka said the completion of the teacher’s house at the school has brought a sigh of relief to the school.


“There are six teachers because there are also six houses.Teachers refuse to rent house in the community. We thank the girl through TNM for doing the finishing,” said Jeka.


TNM’s Head of Northern Region, Richard Kwatiwani said the company was satisfied with the projects that have been handed over so far as they have spread across all social fabrics of the society.


“The handover of these facilities demonstrates our company’s commitment in fulfilling its promises to customers in Mzimba and the rest of the region. Through this promotion, we have touched almost every social fabric of the country,” he said.
