1. Paul Bloch
It is with great regret that we need to inform you that Paul Bloch, our much loved partner, is no longer a practicing partner in Nwanda.
Earlier this year, Paul suffered a brain stem stroke after surgery to remove a benign brain tumour. He has bravely fought to recover from this horrific incident and although he has made a remarkable recovery so far, he is not able to practice as a Chartered Accountant at this time.
We wish to stress that the current partners remain committed to Paul’s clients and assure you of a smooth transition during this trying time.
We continue to pray for Paul’s complete recovery in the hope that he will rejoin Nwanda in the future
