Joyce Banda credits Muluzi for advise against  political use of religion

Former president  Joyce Banda  has urged political leaders not to divide people in the country in the name of religion during the political campaign for the fresh presidential elections.

Joyce Banda at Naisi in Zomba: Dr Bakili Muluzi advised me to avoid bringing religion into politics

Addressing a rally at Naisi in Zomba under the banner of opposition Tonse Allaince, Banda, who leads Peoples Party (PP), credited former president Bakili Muluzi for advising her during the two years she was Head of State not to allow religion creeps into political affairs.

“It was my brother, former president Dr. Bakili Muluzi who told me that political violence, tied to religious affiliations never ends. He advised me to avoid bringing religion into politics,” said Banda.

“I am wondering today that DPP-UDF alliance is championing politics of religions ahead of the election,” he said.

“We are Malawians regardless of being coming from different religious backgrounds, let’s unite as people from one nation,” said Banda.

Taking his turn, MCP vice president Sidik Mia concurred with Banda, stressing that no presidential candidate or running mate should be campaigning using the religion card, especially Islam.

Tonse Alliance leader in their meetings across the country have gone on an overdrive to  critice  recent utterances by President Peter Mutharika’s running mate Atupele Muluzi, who is UDF president, for  asking people to reject MCP allegedly because the party’s stronghold, the Central Region, hates Muslims.

Muluzi has since received a backlash for his remarks, with quasi-religious grouping Public Affairs Committee and political analysts demanding that he apologise to the nation for using divisive religious remarks to gain political mileage.

He has not apologised, but UDF spokesperson Ken Ndanga told the press that he saw nothing wrong with Muluzi’s remarks.

For your information Cashgate started with Bakili then Bingu Bingiza Muthalika . Let’s give credit where its due JB managed to get the Auditors from UK and exposed the system where Bingu Bingiza Muthalika and Bakili were involved. Now Mbuyanu has done nothing because he and his friends are also involved. Remember paja they are good at setting fire to the building to destroy documents.
