This week reports indicated that Quadria Moslem Association of Malawi indicated that the group secretly visited President Peter Mutharika and endorsed him.
The entire hierarchy of the group visited Mutharika at Kamuzu Palace on Wednesday evening.
A source in QMAM explained that they decided to meet and assure Mutharika of their support because of his policies on tolerance, unity of faiths and infrastructure development.
“There is peace and calm in this country because of the President’s virtues of being tolerant and slow to anger even when provoked. As a result of his tolerance, we are worshipping freely in this country. We take example from how his own VP Chilima has provoked and insulted him. Peter Mutharika is a very wise man. Such leaders are rare,” said the source.
The source said their group had resolved to endorse Mutharika soon after meeting Malawi Congress Party leaders where they did not get satisfactory leadership except promises.
When asked why QMAM are denying media reports that they endorsed Peter Mutharika, the source was quick to observe that “This is politics.”
“We have our competitors in Moslem Association of Malawi whom we don’t really want to know everything we are doing. But we know what we are doing,” explained the source.
