Pupils of Namiwawa Primary School and Chilomo LEA School were all smiles on Thursday (17th September) when the Mayor Noel Chalamanda donated sets of uniforms for the schools’ football teams.
Chalamanda, who is Blantyre City Central Ward Councillor, bought the two uniform sets in China using personal money.
“When I was in China for training, I thought of buying something for pupils in my Ward,” said Chalamanda. “I know that apart from sitting in Class learning, you also need to do physical games and that is why I bought you this uniform.”
“May I request you not to concentrate on football only; you must work hard in class as well. You have to ensure that you become useful citizens of Blantyre in future,” he said.
Each school received a set of 17 jerseys which include top, shot and pair of socks and two balls.
