There has been a controversy at a Mosque in Lilongwe with business person Nazma Ishmael of HTD Limited accused of making intimidation to some worshippers.
Some worshippers claim Nazma has been subjecting themto threats and intimidation including that some Asians will be deported.
Mosque worshippers attending daily prayers on Tuesday who spoke to Nyasa Times claimed Nazma was using her connection to the First Lady Gertrude Mutharika as a weapon of intimidation.
“She has been intimidating that she could influence deportation of some Asian business persons. She is well connected to the First Lady. She was also very very close to former president Joyce Banda,” said one worshipper who opted not to be identified for fear of being persecuted.
One of the worshipper Mustak Chothia is reportedly living under fear after Nazma intimidated her.
Lilongwe Mosque Imam declined to comment to Nyasa Times, but said the issue is being investigated.
Ishmael, who was also a member of the Mudzi Trust of former president Banda, through her family’s motor company, HTD Motor City, is now a member of her Beautify Malawi (Beam) trust of Madam Mutharika.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
