He made the remarks on Friday at Traditional Authority (TA) Bwananyambi in Mangochi during the official handover of nine mosques and 11 boreholes that the Islamic Relief have constructed and sunk in the area.

Msaka said government has always appreciated the Islamic Relief’s gesture and all the pledges that they have made in the areas of education, agriculture and health.

“We are very grateful for the developments that the Islamic Relief Organisation of Saudi Arabia have promised to initiate such as irrigation scheme, construction of schools, and clinics among other things,” the Minister said

Msaka pleaded with people in the area to take good care of the facilities and to avoid vandalism of any kind.

He said construction of schools in the area would help in making education accessible to everyone thereby reducing illiteracy levels.

Msaka took advantage of the event to warn Primary School Administration structures in the country against collecting money from parents saying primary school education is for free in the country.

“Primary schools should stop demanding money from parents because primary school education is free. When Primary School Authorities are demand money ask them as to where does government money which is allocated to you go? he advised them.

Islamic Relief Project Engineer for International Relief, Welfare and Development, Sheik Ibrahim Mher said it was their desire to lift up the lives of Malawians in the area and across the country by meeting their social needs, including food.

“There is plenty of water which remains underutilised in the area and we would like to venture into irrigation farming so that people should be harvesting more than once a year,” he explained.

Mher added: “We want to help government in uplifting the lives of Malawians by providing good services to the people; ignorance can best be fought if the community has people who are well educated and it is our wish to promote education in the country.”

TA Bwananyambi commended the Islamic Relief for constructing the mosques saying the initiative would strengthen Islamic faith in the area.

He thanked the country’s leadership for opening doors to the Islamic Relief to come into the country with the development initiatives.

I was diagnosed in June, 2013 with OSTEOARTHRITIS of the spine and both knees, symptoms started with severe back pain, joint swelling and stiffness in my knees and eventually the feeling spread to my shoulders and neck, i couldn’t lift my arm without pain medications. I was prescribed tramacet and arcoxia for 8 months but had to stop them due to bad effects. In 2017, I started on OSTEOARTHRITIS HERBAL FORMULA from RICH HERBS FOUNDATION, this natural herbal treatment reversed my osteoarthritis. Visit ww w. richherbsfoundation .c om. The treatment worked incredibly for my arthritis condition.

Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist group that kills Christians in Egypt! Whether it’s ignorance or stupidity for the government to allow a terrorist group in our peaceful country. These greedy DPP pumbwas are here to destroy our country just because of money.

Let us hope it is not the same Muslim Brotherhood which is banned by most governments in North Africa and Middle East. In Egypt they have been killing Christians and burning churches.

The govt need to be vigilant on this by checking with the Egyptian ambassador and govt if this organisation is not linked to the terrible Muslim brotherhood.

Indeed Moslem Brotherhood is a banned organization and is classified as a terrorist organization by several countries including those in middle east. It is only Quater that supports and funds it. Several of its leaders are jail in Egypt together with Morsi. It was Moslem Brotherhood that killed Anwar Sadat president of Egypt because he had signed a peace treaty with Israel.. The terror at Shamer Al Sheik Holiday Resort was carried by MB so was the Russian passenger plane shot by the same group. Most members of ISIS were from MB and Malawi is associating with it? Malawian Moslems… Read more »

Please as God fearing Malawians let us not coment negatively on religious matters. Let us all accept in coexistence and move forward with love and harmony

Yes coexistence is there. But there is a problem if the scriptures in one of the religion command its faithful to master all weapons and terrorise those who refuse to convert. To most us, Islamisation is not a solution but a problem. Those schools and clinics to be built by Islamic Relief Organisation will be exclusively for Muslims. Non Muslims will secretly be forced to convert if they want to access education in those schools and also if they want to get medical treatment. The Holy Quran will be used to the last letter of the alphabet unless there will… Read more »

Oh yes @BigMan. It’s the very same Muslim Brotherhood which is banned even in its own country of origin in Egypt; whose leader, Mohamed Morsi is in prison for terrorism/treason related offences. It is the organisation that is responsible for the mess that is currently in Egypt and which President Al Sisi is trying to correct. @BigMan, it’s the organisation that is banned even in Saudi Arabia (the cradle of Islam) and in most of the states in the Middle East and North Africa. The Muslim Brotherhood is anathema even to most devout Muslims. When it was first established years… Read more »

In Egypt, the authorities are still battling the Muslims Brotherhood. The grouping has ill intentions. It is very baffling as to how it got to be recognised under a different name. Zam Zam is another suspicious grouping.
