The ruling People’s Party (PP) official Uladi Mussa was filled with excitement on Tuesday during the Mothers Day cerebration which coincided with the commemoration of International Rural Women’s day in central district of Dedza when he learnt that he has been reappointed as a Home Affair Minister in the new cabinet.
In his opening address to the gathering, the seemingly overexcited Mussa hailed President Joyce Banda for the re-appointment which he said was learnt from call from his friend.
“I have just received a call from my friends that Your Excellency has retained my position as Home Affairs minister. Thank you very much your Excellency,” he said
In her short speech Mussa asked Malawians to vote for President Banda in the 2014 elections to give her chance of completing her developmental initiatives she has started which include A Family A Cow Project and Mudzi Trust.
“We gave leaders of the previous administrations the mandated time to complete their tenure of office. Why can’t we do the same to Her Excellency Dr Joyce Banda?”
Mussa, a Muslim by religious belief quoted a hadith (teachings of Prophet Muhammad) emphasizing the importance of women in society.
“There was a man who came to the Prophet asking him for a person deserving obedience. He was told that the first person he should respect is his mother. When he asked about the second person he was told that it is her mother. When he asked for the third person to respect he was again told of his mother. When the man asked for the fourth person he was told that it’s his Father. So we can see that a woman is the most important person in the society,” he said.
In her speech President Banda said no matter what people may say about her, she knows that her destiny to rule the country is in the hands of God the Almighty.
She said those eyeing her position should wait because she was chosen by God to rule the country.
Banda reminded Malawians of hard times they were going through before she came into power which she said are now history.
“All the fuel queues have gone and forex is now everywhere. The most important thing I am happy of is that tobacco is now fetching good prices on the market,” she said.
During the event President Banda pledge to support 50 girls from Dedza district to pursue secondary school education at Joyce Banda Foundation.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
