Gift of Generosity: Akatswiri Holdings Blesses Zomba CCAP with Vehicle

In a grand gesture of benevolence, the Mining exploration and consultancy titan, Akatswiri Holdings, orchestrated a lavish ceremony on Sunday, bestowing upon the Zomba CCAP Church a princely gift in the form of a gleaming Toyota Voxy, a chariot of unparalleled opulence valued at a staggering K17 million.

In a resplendent display of philanthropy, Akatswiri Holdings Director, Hilton Banda, took center stage to make this majestic presentation. With a noble spirit imbued with altruism, Banda elucidated that his decision to bestow this extravagant gift was motivated by his steadfast allegiance to the Zomba CCAP Church, a cherished affiliation spanning an impressive 14 years. Notably, he remarked upon the dire absence of a utility vehicle within the church’s possession, prompting his noble act of munificence.

“This is also part of corporate social responsibility. I had to donate the vehicle so that it should serve the church better,” Banda added.

Banda, his wife and two children unveiled and handed over the eight-seater white Toyota Voxy at Zomba CCAP Hall where Zomba City Presbytery also inducted Rev. Jafali Asid Phiri as new moderator for the church, taking over from Rev. Assistant Commissioner of Police Charles Masambuka who has gone on retirement.

Akatsiri Holdings also pledged to service the vehicle for a period of five years and added that the company will also be paying salary for drivers.

Receiving the vehicle, Moderator of the Blantyre Synod of the CCAP, Rev. Dr. Humphreys Zgambo, thanked Akatswiri Holdings and its director for the donation, saying this was a commendable gesture to the church.

“This is a good gesture to the church. We really appreciate this,” Zgambo said after receiving keys for the vehicle which he later handed over to the newly inducted Rev. Asidi Phiri.

Zomba CCAP Church has in its vision (Vision 2062) a plan to procure a utility vehicle to serve the church better and, according to Rev. Asidi Phiri, Akatswiri Holdings came in to respond to this need.
