Mo Mia pledges Muslim hospital and Islamic University: Upbeat of MCP victory

It appears that Alhaj Mohammed Sidik Mia targets the month of Ramadan and preferably a religious gathering function to pronounce his major political wishes and so far, it is working for him.

Mia announces plans to build Muslim funded state of the art hospital and university

In 2017 when he announced his comeback in front line politics, he told a religious gathering in no uncertain terms that he would be vying for a senior position in his second appearance on the political scene. He appealed to them to support him as they always do in his political journey. This was during the month Ramadan.

Now two years down the line, he was elected deputy vice president of the Malawi Congress Party (MCP). Later, party  leader Lazarus Chakwera went ahead to make him his running mate in the looming watershed elections on 21st May 2019, elections of which MCP has the best chances ever of breaking its decades old jinx, in that event Mia will have fulfilled his ambition of becoming vice president of the republic of Malawi.

Speaking to thousands of Muslim women at Limbe country club onFriday , again during the month of Ramadan, Mia, who is upbeat of MCP victory in this election, made two bold promises to the Muslim community as well as to Malawians in general.

“When we take over government in few days’ time, I want to assure you that we will build a state of the art hospital, bigger than Queens’ hospital and it will be here in Blantyre. This hospital, which will be for all Malawians, will uphold Islam tenets that women should be treated by women medical personnel not like we see today in our hospitals where you are sometimes treated by men personnel’s.

“I have already identified a donor for this mega project and once you usher MCP into power, I promise you that this will come to pass,” he said.

Mia also promised the Muslim community that he will construct a state of the art Islam run University in the country.

“We will also construct a state of the art University so we can significantly contribute to the development of our country by helping in producing highly skilled and industry ready human resource,” he said.

Mo Mia then wowed the women when he told them that he will see to it that they are helped with sound capital for them to start meaningful businesses.

He then appealed to them to support his vice presidential bid by voting for the pair for Dr Lazarus Chakwera in Malawi’s 21st May 2019 watershed election, few days from now.

Mo Mia is an experienced politician and a wealthy businessman whose presence and contribution to the party has made the party to be visible and competitive across the country, in southern region to be more specific, where the party had been struggling to make serious inroads since it lost grip of power in 1994.

Some of the statements like these by Mia r dangerous at this last hour of campaigning… people listening to Mia might interpret him wrongly and choose not to vote for MCP for the fear of what might come from Mia’s plans…..be careful malawi

What the hell is this MIA (Missing In Action) guy talking about. This guy is trying to build a boko haram university and hospital. Mia is a known sponsor of terrorism in Africa and other parts of the world, that is why the FBI are looking for this idiot. He is in the wanted list of sponsors of terrorism. This guy is very dangerous, more dangerous that Osama Bin Laden, his brother. MCP must remain in the dustbin of the opposition benches by hook or crook. Muwabele mavoti anthu awa. Chakwera has been captured by Muslims, the real defacto president… Read more »

When Mia’s wife falls sick and go to South Africa for medical attention, does he demand which doctor should treat his wife or anyone who is specialized in his wife’s problem and is on duty. Why fool people like this? The problem with our uneducated politicians is that they consider every Malawian to be at the same level with them. Foolish Junior Certificate holder.

Industrialization first then everything later. Where are our fellow graduates now? They are stranded in our homes just because the nation cannot offer them an opportunity to work.

Not that those other religious universities were not built by politicians. Please watchout of political promises. They are there for your votes only

Let’s face the fact. There is no way anyone can islamaise the whole nation. Muslims have all the rights to develop this country as our dear Christians do by building ter own schools n hospitals. Let’s understand one another n leave together in harmony

I agree. There are many moslems in Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and they live side by side. Moslems in Malawi have the right to d what other religious groupings do.
