Nankhumwa named ‘most hardworking’ Cabinet minister by Islamic Commission

The Islamic Commission for Justice and Freedom (ICJF) has named Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Kondwani Nankhumwa as the most hardworking Cabinet Minister in the current government administration.

ICJF Chief Commissioner, Shaibu Ajasi confirmed the development in an interview with Malawi News Agency (Mana), saying the commission awarded Nankhumwa a certificate at a ceremony which took place at the minister’s residence on Wednesday.

Ajasi said Nankhumwa deserved the honour given his hardworking spirit as a member of the executive arm of government.

“We have been monitoring him in all his duties as a Cabinet Minister in various portfolios he has held under the leadership of President Professor Peter Mutharika and we found out that he is loyal to the president, the party and his constituents,” Ajasi observed.

He added: “We went to the constituency of honourable Nankhumwa secretly to monitor the developments he has done since 2014 and his loyalty to his constituents since he was elected and we were satisfied that he deserved the honor.”

Ajasi said as a religious institution it was their duty to encourage hardworking people in the society including those in opposition, saying this would promote a hardworking spirit in duty bearers and citizens of the country in general.

He added that ICJF was planning to award certificates to three more Cabinet ministers for the same reason, but could not disclose their names.

Commenting on the development, Nankhumwa said  he was excited with the recognition, saying it had come as a surprise.

“I am very humbled because I did not expect this to happen,” said Nankhumwa, adding: “I didn’t know that some people and organizations in the country are watching and appreciating what I am doing.”

Nankhumwa who is also Democratic Progressive Party vice president for the South, therefore, urged upcoming young politicians to work selflessly to develop their areas and the country at large.

“When people wake up at five in the morning to go and vote for us, they expect nothing but development; therefore, it is our responsibility to develop our areas,” said Nankhumwa.

He, therefore, pledged to continue with developmental projects in his constituency once voted into power again in the 2019 elections.

Malawians,be awake with Muslims as they are working hard to control Southern African States economically and furthermore,politically.Muslims are looking at establishing their strong presence in African governments so that they can have opportunities to scatter Islamic hazadous teachings amongst our people.The good instance is the invasions of Europe some few years ago in the name of refugees and yet,they were immigrants hence,pandemonium in all European nations.In Austria,the youngest leader in Europe,has banned Muslims in his country,ordering demorishments of 6 big Mosques and deportations of 60 Imams who were living in Austria illegally.Malawians,do not trust Muslims,these people want to dominate the… Read more »

ICJF are entitled to their opinion, but as a religious body they need to give true light to Malawians. As for – and all other Malawians that clearly see – Nankhumwa’s does not work hard on his government assignments: he is up and down for DPP compaigning for his party. To say the least, he’s is the one who is blowing taxpayers money the most for the works of a political party. That’s nosense to me. We don’t have to applaud this in any way.

I trust you know the potential danger and consequences that this whole project (which I must admit I find to be very unusual as a scholar, researcher and above all as a citizen ) would have on unity and trust among the cabinet members. Issues of perception, motives and “who is behind what” will come into play in this whole project and by the end of the day this whole project might do more harm than good to cabinet unity,harmony , trangulity , brotherhood , trust etc etc . Those of us who engage our brains to interogate issues understand… Read more »
