She now works as volunteer presenter at Radio Maria, a catholic radio station in Mangochi.

The prodigal catholic daughter on Saturday evening ably presented a programme, ‘woyera wa lero’ a programme which highlights lives of saints and martyrs.

The programme gives details of how such saints and martys were born, the lives they led, how they became saints or martyrs in a bid to inspire catholic spiritual Malawians.

The former first lady who introduced and ended the programme with a name Patricia Shanil, was composed on radio and followed all broadcasting etiquettes.

She dropped her name, Patricia upon becoming a Moslem and immediately adopted an Islam name, Shanil.

Apart from working as a part time volunteer radio announcer, she is also a member of parliament and runs a string of businesses.

Among other things in her divorce papers, she accused her husband then of extra marital affairs and pocketing her allowance from the government after she played guardian to Muluzi when he was sick in the UK, saying the former president diverted the allowances to his lady bodyguard instead.

All commenting negatively could be Moslems. Take note that once you leave your Christian religion to join Islam, it’s all good to Islam. You will hardly find Muslims converting to Christianity and those that do so are cursed by Islam and persecuted mainly in those Islam dominated countries.
The good thing is that our country has a strong freedom of religion and I salute Muluzi on this for not enforcing Islam to Malawi as has just happened in Gambia.
