Vice President Saulos Chilima has called upon Malawians to support war veterans for the efforts they did during the first and second world wars.
Chilima made the remarks at Lilongwe Golf Club where he graced the veterans Charity Golf Tournament that was organised by Malawi Defence Force (MDF).
According to Chilima, Malawians must massively support the veterans of the first and second world wars, saying that their sacrifice could not be appreciated enough.
“We enjoy this peace today because these people we call veterans sacrificed a lot, but although we call them veterans today, that’s not what they were on the battlefield. They risked their lives,” Chilima said.
The Veep said the golf tourney was only one small token of appreciation to the veterans’ noble cause.
He challenged Malawians to do more in form of donations to support the day-to- day welfare of the veterans.
The event also included fundraising activities such as sale of poppy ribbons and a raffle draw.
