FAM general Secretary Alfred Gunda said the meeting provided the association an opportunity to explain the need for more funding.
“Sometimes when we lobby for more funding, we are seen as being extravagant because the MPs do not understand our requirements.
“The meeting, therefore afforded us the platform to explain to them in detail on the challenges we encounter. It also gave them a chance to understand how we operate so that when we demand more money, they should have a picture,” he said.
A member of the committee Alex Meja, who is also Member of Parliament for Kasungu West, also described the meeting as cordial.
“Basically, we wanted to understand how they operate, the challenges they face and we now appreciate the need for more funding to associations,” he said.
