Members of the Muslim Association of Malawi have called former president Bakili Muluzi a hypocrite who is playing double standards after he criticized muslim women dancing for president Dr Joyce Banda.
An impeccable source within the Muslim Association of Malawi has revealed that immediately after Muluzi’s statements the executive members of the Muslim Association of Malawi demanded apology from Bakili Muluzi for bringing religion into politics for the sake of gaining popularity for his son Atupele Muluzi .
Reacting to Muluzi’s statement, one of the Sheikhs said, ‘ Bakili Muluzi is a desperate man trying to lure all muslim to follow his son who is becoming unpopular day by day as people see no tangible policy in him. He has recently tried to frequent mosques trying to hard to disturb the support Dr Joyce Banda is enjoying amongst Muslims.’
In a similar development a member of Parliament for Mangochi Yusuf Matumula has accused former president Bakili Muluzi of double standards, Muslim women were singing and dancing for him when he was UDF president, even in Islamic countries people do sing and dance in Hijub during their celebrations’
Many political analyst believe Muluzi played cards for his son to snatch the leadership from Jumbe as he is desperate to rule Malawi through backdoors after facing trial of swindling billions of tax payers’ money in Malawi.
