7 Malawi Muslim students arrested in Sudan

Seven Malawian Muslim students at International University of Africa (IUA) in Sudan appeared in court on Sunday in Sudan following their arrest on 21 May by Soba police. They were expected to take a plea on allegation of beating up fellow Malawian student for spying on them.

Under arrest in Sudan: Malawi Muslim students

The students Rasheed Kadwala, Rodriq Chipande,  Sulaiman Jalasi, Yusuf Maundala, Clement Chipande, Issah Eliyasi and Meemu Awali are among 171 needy students that were  sponsored by Malawi Islamic Zakaat Fund (IZF).

They are alleged to have been arrested following orders from executive director of the IZF in Malawi Muhammad Osman a Sudanese national who heads Radio Islam for assualting a fellow student.

But the students’ leaders at the University told Nyasa Times through a statement on Sunday that the arrest was a ploy by Osman and other Muslim leaders in Malawi to silence the students who are demanding monthly allowance increment due to predicament they are facing.

“Islamic Zakat Fund Director Muhammad Osman cold-shouldered students’ request which influenced them to boycott monthly allowance of April,” reads the statement

It says the situation was very unpalatable when Osman  stopped responding to emails from students union which forced the students to hold vigil on 7 May 2015 at Munazamaat Dawa Islamia  offices where they receive their monthly allowances so that their grievances should be addressed to him as it was only means they had to communicate to him.

“Alas, he stood his grounds that he will not increase the $38  they are receiving now. In his memorandum he said those who will not receive the monthly allowance should send their names to IZF so that returning air ticket should be prepared for them” reads the statement.

It says the students had no option but sending the names to the organization which brought them to Sudan which is distancing itself from their concerns.

“168 students out of 171 students demanded air ticket as situation is becoming tougher every day. ”

However, the statement says IZF organized meeting with parents at ZODEC in Zomba during which Osman  brainwashed the parents by claiming that the students broke the computers of the university.

“It was very unfortunate when one of the graduates at IUA who attended the meeting wanted to comment about situation students face when she was silenced by Ibrahim Milanzi (close friend to Muhammad Osman). Instead he appointed Alhaj Kawinga to be representative of parents who is also close friend to Muhammad Osman.”

The statement says it was on 21 May when seven students were falsely accused of beating the spy of IZF.

“Osman insisted that the seven students should be detained at Soba police station in a filthy cell temperature 50 degrees Celsius. To make matters worse Alhaj Kawinga sent a message on whatsApp after emergency meeting with Osman which reads: “muona mafana simunati ndimakuuzani ine ndipo mupepese pasanathe 30 minitsi (you will see and this is just beginning and you are supposed to apologise in 30 minutes time).

According to a statement the students kept the vigil at administration offices the whole day demanding the release of seven students  who were ill-treated by not allowing people to give them food.

No statement was taken from them but police officers kept on torturing them by beating and pulling  hair on their heads. “You will know who Sudanese are” one of the policeman said.

“It was around 8:00 pm when five students were released . The remaining two were alleged to have committed a crime within the cell.

“This angered the students who had been at the administration offices since morning waiting for their colleagues to be released. Lucky enough the vice chancellor Professor Ubeiri Kamali was called to address irate students and he was very concerned with the matter he said was ignorant about it.

He promised that he will take into consideration and applauded the students for the unity they showed and he went to the police station where he accused the officers of arresting the students for no apparent reason. The two were released around 11pm.”

The students are therefore  requesting IZF that if they know that they will not meet the demand of the students they should send them returning air tickets and they not take advantage of their poverty by ordering the arresting arrest of innocent souls.

“They did not choose to be poor, it is Allah’s plan. It is very unfortunate to see that they are teaching Islam of which they are not practicing.” concludes the statement.

  9. The REAL Truth says:

    The UK (England and….etc)

    The UK is one of the places on earth where you get very highly educated people.

    And for those people to accept something means that it can only be the truth.

    (If a few eggs turn out to be rotten, that doesn’t mean that the chicken is not perfect.

    always look at the teaching of Islam, and not people..because people make mistakes, but Islam is perfect)

    and by the next few years, UK will be having a very high number of Muslims.

    Conflict brings change and where two or more people gather for a common goal conflicts are likely to be there only that we need to be very objective and constructive in handling these conflicts,,, however, it is sad and grief to see muslim leaders demostrating irrational thinking to their fellow muslims,,, ALLAH GIVE US THE SPIRIT AND PRACTICE OF CORPARATION

  32. nyayo says:

    For those that keep on attacking Islam just stop it. You call yourselves Christians when Jesus was not a christian. Christianity came after Jesus. Then which religion Jesus prayed? Search me. Am proud to be a Muslim. Let’s meet in heaven and see who will be with Jesus. When ignorance is plenty it’s better to be wise.

  33. nyayo says:

    Am one of beneficiaries of IZF. What we are given as allowance is enough to keep us going but the problem is that when we are abroad, we want to live like the johns.Am sorry to say this but it’s true. Look at their bodies! They look energetic but what they want is money to buy luxuries. So many people went to Sudan and what they were given was less than this but they dint complain. Let’s be faithful and appreciative. For the Christians it’s unsafe to make fun of Islam when there is no nexus. If you were intelligent enough you could not have allowed someone to fabricate the picture of jesus.

  51. Khalidwe says:

    we must think b4 we doing choose the right religious look now the problem but no one Muslim take care about this issues.guys just leave Muslim and choose another religious okay

  52. Mbanangwa says:

    They are being brainwashed to become tools for Al Shabab and Boko Haram. I bet Malawians, be on the look out for these Dona and daughters of Ishmael, the cursed son born from Hagar, a slave girl of Sarai.
    The whole race was cursed no wonder war has followed them wherever they went eg Mesopotamia, Iran and Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Indonesia, Sudan, Somalia through the settlers of Menelik who are linked to Nesopotamia.
    Muslims will never have peace, they were cursed after Abraham sinned with Haggar. Do not trust them, even with a loan.

  55. You must be very stupid, mxi you’re cowards, why you want to kill your friends because of $38? If the director said IZF can’t manage to increase to your demanding then why are you keeping on doing things cowardly?

    You must know that you are there to learn not to invest. You have to concentrate on your education not calling your friends spy while you’re doing bad things. I know IUA provide everything then $25 is enough.

    If you don’t want to learn just come back and be Nachipanti ku Ndirande.

    Ndiponso zimatupi zili apa sizofuna sukulu izi. I am begging you the Director of IZF please remove these 7 students and leave those who want to learn.

    why sudan? sometimes amalawi when we travel to islamic countries PLEASE TAKE CARE… We dont want kuti adzakupheni ndi zozila because asilamu they pretend as if they act in the absence of God.

    Number 32 kabudula how many universities out side malawi have you attended or have been studying? Not all universities when students violate laws of institutions can be arrested on such stupid crazy issues…. those students have rights to complain about allowances….The problem is the country they are in and also stupid muslims malawians who want to make other people to suffer…

    Give them some tickets that they can back home alive… ndipo Boma lifufuze amene watumiza SMS yo ……and he should be arrested.. WE NEED STOP THIS COMPLETLY IN THIS COUNTRY… and the govt has to make sure that students have enough money to survive in foreign countries

    It is unfortunate that we here of such things. Its now clear that some of these Arabs are working in cohorts with local Shaykhs to milk these poor students of their small allowances. What meaningful education can one get from a country like Sudan? and what type of contribution do you expect these young men and women to the development of Malawi? Stop sending these children into slavery please, bring them back home.

  68. Stupidity is warm, knowledge is cool says:

    Enslavement: the white man brought slave trade, the imposed the idea that jesus is white, then colonised us, THIS CONTRIBUTED the the self inferiority feeling and low self esteem in black africans. Arabs captured us sold us to whites, then they imposed their culture and religion, saying their culture and religion was better than our local traditions ones, YOU BELIEVED and start worshiping they great arabic guy, start dressing like them, speaking like them, THIS IS A MODERN MENTAL ENSLAVEMENT, LET NO CHINESE TELL U TALK THE CHINESE god BUDHA IS THE ONE TO WORSHIP, OR INDIANS TELL U THE INDIAN god a is the one for u, WHITES MADE U BELIEVE god is white, ARABS MAKE U WORSHIP an arabic GOD, please malawian dont be fooled onse amapembedza milungu yawo yowoneka ngati iwo eni and they say your idea of god isnt GOD koma the one of their race. THIS IS WHY RASTAFARIANS REALISED THAT the idea of a god IS JUST RACIST SUPERIORITY, GOD HAS NO RACE, so they believe son of GOD was black, you all laugh coz U HAVE BEEN BRAINWASHED BY WHITES AND ARABS TO BELIEVE THEIR CULTURE , RELIGION and god IS GREATER THAN YOUR OWN, siyani kuvala mikanjo ndikubisa kumaso or kuwerenga koran zawo za culture yawo, theyres a reason they dress like than, why shouldne u dress and speak your own way. tsukani mmaso. 99% OF MALAWIAN THINK RELIGION IS INSURANCE THAT GUARANTEE LIFE AFTER DEATH. we all die and decompose after death, fact. But GOD is real, great but he is not arabic, white or chinese, when u pray and visualise GOD as a white male or ARABIC then you are a cultural racially victim of your own stupidity.

    People should always distinguish between religion and the people who follow a religion. The teachings of Islam are beautiful. Islam has not taught war. Islam has not taught hatred or oppression. Most of you you who criticize the religion have not even a single grain of the knowledge of Islam but just prejudices. Just like in any religion, there are black sheep in Islam and sadly the media and prejudiced people focus on what those black sheep do and not what the religion teaches. I challenge all of you who have said ill of Islam in the comments to give me the teachings of Islam that promote hate or war or oppression. Please comment and criticize on things you know. You should have just commented on the described situation without attacking a religion. Its the people who have messed up, not a religion.

    Government should know that Muhammad Uthman (director of IZF) is a sudanese soldier. He iz here to spy Malawi’s security. His life z babalic. Milanzi too is stupid. busy praising sudanese to milk them. You are all tainting Islam. One day Allah will punish you. Change your behaviours. You already benefited from IZF, including your children. Let others also benefit.

  90. Issa Kabudula says:

    I for one as the beneficiary of such bursaries in Malawi – as Muslim YES we got problem, we don’t follow the teaching of Islam properly. Many a times in 1970’s many were forgotten in Sudan, Malaysia, Pakistan – where the system of air tickets, allowances and the manipulation of allowances is the talk of the Muslims.

    This case of Sudan – if the IZF got less funding why sending more students at first place? Why not cut the number of students to at least half, such that they can be cared? Brother Osman himself does he follow the rules of Shariah (Islamic laws), if yes, why having spies? Making matters worse it was the same Osman as reported, who authorised the arrest of the students – shame.

    Malawi has benefited a lot from International African University, the university is not cheap, its one of the top 20 in the world, beating many universities – the problems is lack of funding and officials outside the university, the like of Osman are either corrupt/useless individuals who make Muslims to look like stupids – lets learn to sort matters of concern earlier, easy and amicably.

    Every student who will violet the laws of any institution they deserve punishment – therefore our Malawi students need to know this and respect the rules, otherwise u will find yourselves in Sudan jail instead of classes, shame on you boys (oko ndiye kukula, you have made history, that u ever been arrested in Sudan in 2015) a good history for your kids.

    the black stone called allah is disturbing the earth

  92. GONANI says:

    Teach those kids Christianity right there in Malawi and they will know who God really is.

  93. Nsena says:

    Zanu zimenezo anthu auzimu sasowa.umphawi utiphetsa amalawi.

  94. sunderstar says:

    Islam is an oppressive Religion it has no sense to respect human rights, These boys have committed no offence but are simply asking for an increase in their upkeep allowances as life in the foreign land is expensive. Government must entervene to check on the conditions facing the students. Ministry of Education officials must visit the country to check on the living conditions affecting the students

    1. Charlie Hebdo says:

      This has nothing to do with Islam. If a person is evil, regardless of his/her religion he/she will act in a manner befitting an evil person unless he/she repents. The question to ask probably is, “Would Osman and crew have behaved differently if they were Christians”? Your guess is as good as mine.

  95. apundi says says:

    mwakhaula, wankhanza amabwezeredwznso nkhaza, asilamu ndinu anthu ankhaza, anzanu a mitundu ina mumawatenga ngati si nthu koma inu nokha kudzikonda. akuchitani bwino muone nyekhwe wooooooooo

  96. kanyimbi says:

    It would have been better if these people were learning here at home. Why taking them to Sudan? what exactly are they learning there?

  97. CHEWA FEDERAL FRONT says:

    One can understand what Muslim groups in the country are trying to do: make up for the lost ground, perhaps to eventually match the Tumbukas.
    But sponsoring a single student through higher education, abroad, is not cheap, let alone 171. Remember that in academia it’s not the numbers that matter, but QUALITY. I suggest you cut that number from 171 down to 40. Only then can you be assured of the QUALITY of candidates. Otherwise, you are mis-educating these guys: they will not help the country.
    Besides, given the rampant cheating at MSCE, I strongly recommend that you use a QUOTA SYSTEM that favours rural students.

  98. Ishmael says:

    Am very concerned with this.Umphawi wathu wapangitsa kukhala chitonzo komanso chiopsezo kwa Amalawi.
    Umphawi ukutipangitsa kuchita zinthu zomwe sizololedwa pongofuna kusangalatsa #Mabwana athu.
    Allah is the knowest of all.

  99. mjomba says:

    Chisilamu nd chipembedzi choponderezana…believe it or not.

  100. mtubuka 1 says:

    What do they teach them? Muslims are not afraid of taking someone’s life I hope they are not being manipulated into believing that bokoharam and Isis are fighting for a good cause. Wicked religion!!

  101. jcjcjd says:

    Its not IZF scholarship by the way. It is is IDB scholarship ( Islamic Development Bank).

  102. ndala says:

    Ndalama donated by amwenye,but this brothers of ours want to pocket the money and Gve peanuts to our students,ngati ndi zawo sshupid

  103. Galu says:

    zopusa…..

  104. chinena says:

    These students were being brainwashed into militants to take orders from Osman who all muslims of this sect in Eastern Province of Malawi worship as if he is Prophet Mohamad. When these Islamic Fundamentalists students return they must b investigated thoroughly but it must not be Dausi doing the job, find a trained police/army or private investigator.

  105. You are there for education not manyado.

  106. Zfi says:

    Mmm too bad, 38us dollars per month?

  107. Gawera wa Gawera says:

    Our Muslim brothers, it is time to stand up solidly fighting a good cause together. I hope that since the news has broken up, it is important for parents have take it up

  108. THERE IS NO STRAIGHT FORWAD CASE Just sell to us palatable stories other than complicated like this without true base an allegation. Make gud investigation and came back to us.

  109. Malawi Boko says:

    So these boys will graduate into boko haraam insurgents and torture our Malawian communities? Zoopsa!

  110. lol says:

    Government of Malawi should investigate and rescue theses students, $38 a living allowance? What a torture!

  111. Kenkkk says:

    This is the creeping in of religious fanaticism and terrorism. That is how these things start. If they return to malawi, they should be seriously interrogated by the govt authorities such as nib before being allowed to settle down. They should also be seriously monitored as to what they are doing.

  112. Kanonono says:

    Religious issues are so sensitive that a sane man must not comment without making due diligence. Much as I am not a Muslim, it is insane to call this an Al-Shabbab University from the Somalia-based group. You may end up creating unnecessary misunderstandings with yellow fellow Malawians who happen to be Muslims.

  113. Jokujoku says:

    I haven’t seen Muhammad Osman but i heard that he is a bad man who only wants to eat malawian Muslim donated money and bank into his overseas account. Shame on you MO . You accumulate money for yourself on this earth but you forget that you will leave those monies and die. Almighty ALLAH is watching you man

  114. knowkeep says:

    Mpaka ku Sudan, kumaona maiko opitako Koma pepani

  115. Wisely says:

    Ministry of Education should serously investigate this case, otherwise we will wake up one day only to hear Malawian students have been killed in Sudan.

  116. Julie says:

    Thats barbaric! Bring them home as soon as possible!

  117. hon says:

    Sha mukuphunzitsana u alshabaab kumeneko eti ? Zoopsa IZF agent wa Islamic state iwe.achawa simuzatheka

  118. Nkasa says:

    Sha! We have so many Malawians at the Al-Shabbab training schools?

    Mayo ine!

  119. Nose amene mwatuluka Ku cell Ku Sudan’ko ofunika Jannabat(Jannabar) chifukwa mwadesedwa!

  120. kunta says:

    Take a lesson, not every fellow muslim you see is your brother
