Sheikh Dinala Chabulika attacked for supporting Malawi’s President Joyce Banda

BLANTYRE (MaraPost)–Armed robbers Sunday night attacked Sheikh Dinala Chabulika’s residence in Mpingwe, Blantyre but the spokesperson of the Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) and his family escaped unhurt after hiding themselves in the ceiling.

The attack has since been linked to a ‘muslim faction’ said to be against President Joyce Banda’s maize donation and Chabulika’s involvement in maize distribution to the Muslim community.

 According to sources, President Banda donated the maize and is using Sheikh Chabulika to woo support from the muslim community following the resignation of former cabinet minister Mohamed Sidik Mia, who was governing People’s Party Vice President for the southern region.

“Two strange men broke into the house baying for my blood while several others were closely monitoring what their colleagues were doing in the house, but I couldn’t recognise,” said Chabulika Monday morning.

The armed robbers, according to him, must have been sent by “some members of MAM who are unhappy with him for overseeing the distribution of maize given to them by the Malawi leader.

“There is no way you can please everybody, as such I will not stop working with the President in supporting hunger stricken families. And this is line with teaching of our faith,” Chabulika.

Meanwhile, National Chairperson of Muslims Women’s Organisation in Malawi, Fatima Ndaira has advised MAM to iron out the differences “islamically and religiously” and that they should not allow politics to divide them..

“Politics and religion are two different things. Let politicians do politics,” said Ndaira before declining to take more questions.

Meanwhile, Police are still searching for private practice lawyer Chancy Gondwe’s assailants following his attack by armed robbers last Friday.

He was attacked barely three days after his client Justice Mponda was acquitted by the Blantyre Magistrate Court on extortion charge in relation to a news article that was alleged to have scathing attacks on President Banda and members of her family.
