Sheikh Idrissa Muhammad has been given another ten year mandate to run Muslim Association of Malawi as its Chairperson. 

This speaks volume on degree of trust people have in him. 

His return for duties follows 2021 Shurah Council of the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) meeting which took place in Blantyre. 

The association’s Secretary General, Alhaji Twaib Lawe, told journalists in Blantyre that the re- election follows the amendment of their Constitution in 2017.

“This system helps to conduct a fair and
peaceful election in our body” said Lawe.

He said the system started in 1957, but was not used for some years and was later reviewed after 10 years, he said.

According to him, almost 40 sheikhs, who form the council, attended the meeting from all the districts in Malawi.

Meanwhile, the council has also elected Sheikh Yusuf Chibwana as vice chairperson for the association.
