Speaking during the prize presentation ceremony to the winners TNM Head of Corporate Services Stella Hara said her company decided to co-sponsor the golf tournament to live up to its motto of always being with their customers.
“As you know our motto is Always with You and for this weekend all roads led to Mangochi to Lake of Stars as such we felt we should interact with our customers through golf while they are here relaxing with their families,” said Hara whose company was the official Lake of Stars Festival mobile partner.
