Malawians,your leaders are just good for nothing,they don’t know what Muslims have in their agendas.As I always narrate that,I strongly opposed Hastings Banda in many issues like apparent hate of democratic freedoms Malawians fought for,he thought he was the only one in the country who was highly educated and looked down upon us as uneducated brutes.He aligned himself with imperialists and colonialists to oppress Malawians and Africans in general.However,when it came to Indians and Muslims,I gave him KUDOS.He knew exactly who they were before many people realised how obnoxious these kulkubes were.Muslims have in their agendas to Islamise all countries… Read more »

I think Mia is saying It is not good for Moslem women to be treated by men, His wish is Moslem women to be treated by female medical personnel, either Christian, Satanism, or even those who don’t visit the church corridors, as far is a woman it doesn’t matter to his views

Sidik mia,if you came into our country with your dirty notions to mislead our decent people,then packup and go where you came from.I hope you have not already tought our people in your uncultured and killer religion to go with water buckets in toilets to wipe their asses with their hands after delivering their smelling shit.What is wrong for male doctors to treat muslim women? To hell with your uncultured and murderous faith.You go around and mislead your members to ignore Western Education,unfortunately,the resultant is that you have millions of people who are uneducated and go around and kill innocent… Read more »

Learn to respect other people’s faith you savages. do not insult what Muslims believe. zitsiru inu. afiti Osowa chochita. Be courageous to reveal your identity if indeed you think you can get away with you stupid remarks.


People should understand the concept first…… The game is not about Christianity vs Islam……… pick the senses from the senseless…… Mia is selling his ideas………. that pregnant women should be treated with fellow women nurses/doctors………likewise……..alot of men feel unconfortable to get circumcised with female specialist……… Please we are all Malawians…………. verbal wars are useless……………. Tonse tinakatha kukhala anthu osapemphera zikadakhala kuti tidachokera ku dziko la anthu losapemphera…………

Let us understand Mia by considering our culture not religion. Dziwapo and Zander, take a situation whereby your wife has gone to deliver but despite many female nurses in the hospital your wife is being helped in the labour room by your male neighbor who happens to be on shift on that particular day. Your wife opens wide both legs to this male neighbor and he views all the nakedness of your wife. Apart from being in the delivery room another case can be a test for vaginal or cervix cancer. Your wife goes exposes the whole vagina to a… Read more »
I understand your point of view but I don’t agree with your proposition. If you don’t want your wife or daughter to be examined by a male doctor then maybe you should sponsor enough Muslim women or women in general to study medicine and nursing. You could also take them to private hospitals where you can pay and ask for such a favour. The other alternative is to open Muslim hospitals where you can address that concern. Government hospitals are public hospitals and should not cater for any religious beliefs. What is going to happen if other people from other… Read more »

Here comes a pure Moslem. He forgets that this is Malawi and not Arabia. Mr Mia and all other Moslems pliz assist your friend to build your own hospitals and train your own doctors and nurses so that you each other or samukani mupite ku Arabia

Timve Ziti

This is the beginning of trouble. The strange thing is the moslems in Malawi exaggerate. You mean all these female asylum seekers all over the world are being treated by female doctors? Can bet anything that even this financial institution will only serve Moslems. Take a look around their shops and businesses mostly employ Moslems. Yet most of them were educated in Christian schools. Wake up!

Mfiti ya Chi Khristu

Koma zinazi eeeiiiiish. Chokani mdziko lathu pitani kwanu kwa anthu akupha. komanso anthu akuda kutengeka, chimenecho chipembezo? we dont want muslims in malawi, they are an eyesore. tawonani azimai kunyasa ndi tizikolofiya tawoto. anthu inu timadana nanu inu.

Che Spindulo

Sadik Mia and his overly ambitious wife, Abida, should get it into their heads that this predominantly Christian and African country called Malawi can never elect an Indian moslem as a president.
Although it is always good to have ambitions in life, some ambitions are just impossible to achieve and they are a mere waste of time and resources.
