Dedza chief suspends pork in market, bows to Malawi Muslim demands: Sells only halal meat

A traditional leader in Malawi’s central district of Dedza, Sultan Tambala has ordered traders who sell pork at main market there, to stop selling pork until he look into the complaints by Muslims that those who are selling meat from pigs are violating the rights of Muslims.

A local radio said Muslims in the area complained to the chief that selling pork at the market is an insult to their religion.

However, chairperson for the market wondered why the Muslims raised the issue this time around “since pork sellers have long been operating outside the main market without problems.”

Months ago Muslims in Malawi’s northern district of Mzimba threatened to use force should the M’mbelwa District Council authorities fail to meet their demand to establish separate selling points for pork from other meat in the district’s markets.

Last year Village Headman Busiri of Traditional Authority Chowe in Malawi’s southern district of Mangochi issued a seven-day ultimatum to pig farmers to leave his area.

In Arabic the word halal means ‘permitted’ or ‘lawful’ and defines anything that is allowed or lawful according to the Qur’an.

It is often used to indicate food – particularly meat – has been prepared in accordance with Muslim principles and techniques.

Muslims are forbidden from eating any non-halal food and meat from pig .

If you can’t co-operate ooh my God you don’t know what they think about you. BEHEADINGS. tHEY SAY KILL THE INFIDEL! which simply translates “the non-believer.” And the world is deceived and is dancing to that false tune of peace.

Ukampatsa ufulu msilamu amafuna iyeyo zake ziyende basi. Mfumuyo idziwe kuti dziko lino siliyendera malamulo achisilamu.

    This is getting out of hand now. Doesn’t that chief know that he is destroying the economy of the the country by stopping meat traders from operating?

    And besides since when did the law abiding citizens start getting harassed by boko haram in Malawi? That must stop right there before the owners of the land react aggressively.

    Dedza is for pork eating people and we sell it to each other wherever and however we like. If you are not down with that go to Mangochi please!

  53. zaluma says:

    Is Malawi an Islamic state? This is the beginning of Boko Haram in Malawi. APM please. Muslims are deliberately stepping on the Tiger’s tail. They should not remind us of 1999 scam. This time NAgashaki and Horoshima will be better, if Muslims will continue threatening the rights of the majority. Please leave Malawi is a peaceful country with its peaceful loving pple. Tolerance teaches to accept what other are doing even if I do not like them. Sultan Tambara watch your steps. Do not behave like the Sultan of Sokoto in Nigeria

    Malawians please why these people behave like they dont have brains. why muslims behave in this way?

We are the poorest country on earth, let us focus on developing our country. Enough of these Boko Harams, Al Shababu’s, al queda; and all the Als (whatever that means). Malawi is not an Islamic state, and NEVER shall it be. Govt should open its eyes. This is how religious anarchy starts. Islam is a cancer.

  65. SEPERATE THE BENCHES OR ROOMS IN THE MARKET, AND NOT TO BURN THE DEALERS TO DO THEIR BUSINESS, IT IS ALSO WRONG TO DO SO.

    Koma izi nde zopusa sopano. Why shd they sell only halaal meat? Is everyone in dedza a muslim? Dont those who find pork halaal be refused the right to eat pork just because muslims are offended? I am offended by islam itself and Muhammad its creator. I guess that means islam and its god should be suspended or banned right? Malawi is not a muslim country and mjslims need to be told that in no uncertain terms.

    Stupid! Muslims should just come up with their country

  89. nedi says:

    The opposite of halal is haram “sinful”. The Yaos who are observed mostly to be moslems by religion in Malawi and the Chewas/Ngonis(predominant tribes in Dedza and mostly christian by religion) have generally co-existed peacefully in Dedza. T/A Tambala is a senior Chief of Yao descent in a popularly known area of Mayani. Without any insult, we have observed some Yao openly or secretly consume pork. There are other donominations like the Seventh Day Adventists who do not eat pork. Malawians have generally respected each other on food restrictions, but there is this creeping hatred coming in with some few overzelous individuals of either groups who want to deliberately provoke each other. It happened at Chinsapo in Lilongwe. It also occured in Mangochi. I missed the occurence of Mzimba. I am sure that it is just a few disgruntled individuals who want to stir trouble. DO NOT GENERALIZE. MARK THE INDIVIDUALS STIRING TROUBLE. Save Dedza from your obsession with extremism!

    I personally think this is bullshit why do muslims like to impose their religion and beliefs on other people. does the selling of pork at a local market make them eat fools we should kill them all

  91. ant -Balaka says:

    Muslims mustn’t dictate what people should sell or not, This is Malawi not Iran an Islamic nation so let people trade freely other secular people will get fade up with your tactics then fight will errupt as it was in Central Africa Republic, which we saw also Muslims who started the fight being kicked on their ass, so watch the space we kick your ass here too.

  92. ujeni says:

    By this rate, if we are not careful and let uneducated muslims have their way in this country, Southern Region and parts of Central Region will be Islamic Region. Careful Malawians, you give then an inch or space, they go a mile, thats how they start war.

  93. DAMBA says:

    Can all Moslems migrate to Saudi Arabia. Malawians have always eaten pork and if a foreign religion wants to limit our freedom, doomed be that religion. Why is it only Moslems and not Adventists? Let different religions co-exist without limiting the freedom of the other. We do not force them to eat pork, we do not force them to drink alcohol. They should just look aside. Do they vomit when they see a pig?

    This is sheer hypocrisy. Pork is served in supermarkets, hotels where moslems frequent. They also use the same curtlery and plates that we use for pork in hotels. Do they bring their own when they travel? Do they know what happens in the kitchens of hotels?

    Give us a break.

    This is not an islamic country, ufulu wa ogulitsa pork usaphedwe ayi, in fact pork is very sweet meat! amene sadya asagule, koma kuti azikagulitsa kwina, ndiye sizitheka zimenezo, ku Mangochi konko basi! Stupid!!! Azikakhala ku Arabia konko!!!

  97. George says:

    The Malawi government should look into this issue with the most seriousness it can ever do. Moslems in Malawi are only 15% if these are allowed to rule without taking into considerations of the majority then we are seating on a timely bomb.
    In fact some of us even wonder why Illovo had to put that satanic logo on sugar pockets. t We ARE NOT MOS:LEMS and we deplore anything We to do with deplore anything Islam having known the misery it has brought worldwide.

    Weather sultan or Mufti this ban is not justified because Malawi is not an Islamic country. This will certainly bring Christians to move that Malawi be declared a Christian country just like Zambia is. Beware of these nonsensical of these uneducated so called sultans. Malawi is not ready and will never be ready for islam

  98. mphatso says:

    But i have seen in other countries Muslims themselves selling beer and even pork in the supermarkets is this not double standards?

  99. chinkombaleza gumanyundo gowa says:

    This is being selfish, they should just keep their culture of not eating pork for those who eat let6 them access it. Then ban selling of pork in all Big markets and shops. let them create their own markets if they so wish. Mind you chief each one is at liberty to sell what he or she wants. The government should not tolerate this. Chif ameneyu ndi wosokoneza bvuto la asilamu lisakhudze tonse iwowo asamalowe munsikamu.

  101. Mbalamatodya Phiri says:

    I dont understand these freedoms, 90% of these freedoms are sin before God, what type of society are we living in. We are in an earthly world where doing something bad accounted laudable but a righteous thing to be done is labeled uncivilised and called all sorts of bad names. Freedoms have been propelled by western countries who have little or no conviction about the existence of all mighty God. Freedom of prostitution, freedom of beer drinking, freedom of stealing, freedom of moving around naked by women, freedom of eating forbidden foods, almost all the freedoms and so called rights promoted by these people western civilized people are sins, and we africans especially Malawians just copy everything, imagine freedoms of anal sex (GAY marriages), freedoms of women on top of men in societies, women leading in churches…… IF we are really a nation of GOD FEARING why do we promote all these bad things. The writing is on the wall, JESUS whom we pretend to follow never ate pork, he never took wine in his daily life, he dressed and encouraged proper dressing among women… where are we getting all these un-pure way of life?

  105. Dear Muslims,
    I see no reasons to proclaim such allegation to come up with laws of your Quran to enforce some pork Sellers from leaving or banning them eating pork as halam. It is clear that you’re not serious on this matter. You Muslims also give us Christians unrespectable Noise through your alarming kind of prayer called Mwanzini kaya… that also is a disturbing noise BUT as Christian we always respect that noise since we understand the need of that noise to all Muslims in a community. If you want Us to stop selling pork or pork product then you should as well stop giving us Noise of Mwanzini you always give us through mounted top of the mosque speakers. Our Christian laws does not allow a Church to mount big speakers calling its congregation to come and pray we feel its an insult to remind someone to come to good jobs of the lord.
    You Muslims also have some kind of accent that as Christian we feel Halam of but we never tell you since we know you’re brothers but why do you want to disappoint us in such a way? From today I would like to tell you dear Muslims that build your own specialized halam markets in Mangochi, Dedza, Mzimba, Nkhotakota and all other districts so that you can sell or eat your way. Those current market were not built to accommodate only a special group NO it is for every citizen either a Muslim, Christian, Hindus, Buddha, Rastafarian, ApuseApuse and even Gule wankulu can come and do their businesses in those markets who can stop them?
    Muslims don’t take things for granted this is not an Islamic state or Christian state the owners of Malawi religion is Orthodox.

  108. matchonisa says:

    Boko Haram ya ku Dedza ikufuna halal pork eti. A mfumunso nanu bwanji kuimitsa malonda a nyama yokoma ngati nkhumba just bcoz of the boko haram, alquaeda, al shabab demands? I am certainly not happy with the decision.

  109. Kanyimbi says:

    A market is a public place and I don’t think selling pork will violet someones rights, which rights? Is a market a mosque? Muslims read bibles but do not allow christians to even touch the quaran.

  110. monkeybay says:

    Zosamveka zimenezo. Are they forced to buy the pork? Nanga nsomba milamba amadya asilamuyo, isagulitsidwenso mu nsikamo? No, lets repsect one another i dont see any big deal here. Freedom to market basi!

  111. Bongololo says:

    I am sick and tired of Muslims trying to dictate the way we live our lives. Who gives them the right to decide what we should or should not eat? Muslims or no Muslims, pork should be enjoyed by those of us that love it. Musatinyase mwamva? Pachakuti panu nonse!

  118. nat turner says:

    Hey you hypocritical muslims bear this in mind that we are also offended by your funny dressing, your daily muezzin noise…so you just stick on your position and we will respect your religion, if you don’t eat pork that’s your business its none of our concern! If you can’t stand the sight of pork meat move up to the mountains in isolation and we won’t miss you, noisy hypocrites!

    That is going too far gogochalo. Dedza is known to be home of ngoni. Chief do you have time to visit some of these chainstores where they sell pork a few metres from beef. Should we say muslims visiting these shops are less pious compared to dedza muslims. How many are yi

  125. Agalu inu mwatikwana mwanza. Why can’t you create your own Muslim markets and only sell your so called halal meat? Malawi is a Christian coutry period. That is why it’s important to devide this country. As Northers we cannot succumb to these demands from these radical Islams

  130. brutsha says:

    There is need to have a well balanced solution. Much as Muslims would argue that selling pork in the market is not respecting their religious rights the same equally sound argument can be put forward by the pork traders that by banning pork sales their right to economic activities is being impinged . The solution is just to designate a place within the market where pork seller can continue with their equally rightful economic endeavors. Of course we know that TA Tambala (Chitundu) in Dedza is Yao populous area hence Muslim dominated but that should not be the tool to torture minorities. What would happen if Muslim minority groups are treated in the same manner in some parts of Malawi. Please government don’t let such discriminatory tendencies to gain room. It’s a recipe for civil unrest.

  131. JCInLA says:

    I am a muslim, and I dont eat port. But this is shit!
    Let people do what they want. Malawi is a free country, and we should not be dictated by religion of any type.
    Dedza people, please speak your mind. You must rebuke and preventr this from happening.
    Sell beef, mbuzi, nguluwe , what so ever . We are a free nation and lets enjoy it.
