Muslim Supreme Council of Malawi leader endorses Mutharika- Atupele

A prominent Moslem cleric in the country Sheikh Dr Imran Shareef Mahomed who heads  Muslim Supreme Council of Malawi has thrown  weight behind President Peter Mutharika and his running mate Atupele Muluzi ticket for fresh presidential elections.

Addressing members of the media in Blantyre on Friday ,Sheik Imran Sharif who once served as the chairperson for  Public Affairs Commitee(PAC) said President Mutharika deserves a second term in office for  demonstrating mature leadership by tolareting opposition critics who have been accusing him of rigging the 2019 elections.

Sheikh Sharif, who also has his own political party called Chilungamo Party,  said a group of renowned Sheiks in the country have vowed to support the DPP-UDF alliance.

Franked by Sheikh Ahmad Mwanyali and Sheikh Adam Mustaf  who hails from  Mangochi and Zomba respectively, Sheikh  Sharif however said he was not speaking on behalf of the Muslim Supreme Council an organization which he chairs but he nevertheless said his Chilungamo Political Party  is partnering the DPP -UDF alliance.

“As prominent Sheikhs in the country,  we have resolved to throw our weigh behind President Mutharika and his running mate Atupele Muluzi  and we are calling upon all people in the country to return President Mutharika to power due to his humble servantship,”,said Sharif.

However,  the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) which is the mother body for the Moslem community in the country  through its spokesperson Sheikh Dinala Chabulika  said the association is apolitical.

The development comes after the Nkhoma and Livingstonia Synods of the Church of Central African Presebetarian( CCAP) already endorsed the MCP-UTM alliance.

I laugh chikhakhali when some Muslim leaders generalise that their own will choose Mutharika. What nonsense is this. I bet even the sheik will vote for Chakwera.

I am in Mangochi and relatives are in Blantyre Lilongwe and Kasungu, We discuss these politics but all my brothers and sisters will go for opposition and I am now thinking louder and will definitely join them.

Go to Reserve Bank = Thyolo, Admarc wapitayu= Mulanje, Energy = Mulanje,AHL= Thyolo. police, MDF commander,BWB,NRC, BANKS,CAPITAL INFESTED with all from Southern Region. Cabinet ministers 90% from South, NFRA = south eeeeeeee! list endless.

There’s nothing wrong for any tribe dominating any working institution for as long as each individual got where s/he is through hard work and there was no favoritism , cronyism nepotism. Only embiciles are cry babies kufuna kuberejedwa all the time

Point of order, ma Sheiks si anthu osaphunzila ayi..these guys are highly educated in their field. You do not just wake up on a Friday morning and pronounce yourself a Sheik just as many others are now Prophets…These people know their Quran as well as the Bible, over and above circular education….
