The ¢5,000 is half of the total amount promised them during the 2017 edition of the MUSIGA Presidential Grand Ball at the Banquet Hall, State House on December 29, 2017.
Percy Ayamba, Chairman of the AMWeF Endowment Fund, speaking at the presentation noted that the money, an initiative of the Endowment Fund, is expected to enable MUSIGA to better provide for its ageing or incapacitated members.
