DPP Vice President for the South Kondwani Nankhumwa made a donation of K1million towards the fundraising drive championed jointly by Ex-Bullets players and Musicians Union of Malawi.

The initiative was aimed at raising funds to ease challenges that some former players and musicians are currently facing.

Apart from the donation, Nankhumwa has also pledged to convene a meeting with representatives of MUM and ex-bullets players, to find long term solutions to the challenges being faced by former players and some musicians in the country.
At the event, Nankhumwa was accompanied by DPP Chiradzulu West legislator Mathews Ngwale.
Other notable faces included Voice Mhone who represented the Minister of Gender, Children and Social welfare as well as Malawi National Council of Sports board Chairperson, Sunduzwayo Madise.
