    I personally met Banonie Mwale back in Dubai, and get a chance to work with him, he is amazing person with such great personality, I remembered when he told me about his plan to give free education for children in their village in Malawe, I was suprised because despite of his struggles in life, his priority was to help his people to get better education, that’s why I really admire him on his passion and patience to pursue his dream, I hope every people have the same way of thinking like Banonie do. I hope and pray for good health and more success so he can help more people.
