“Actually, I am very happy to go there because I will learn a lot from my friends of other countries and I promise to my fellow Malawians that, they will benefit from me as well when I come back,” he said.
“(While there) I will talk about the good work of Malawi Muslim Official Website, Al-bayani Media Productions and Malawi Ummah website, apart from the advances that Muslims in general have done so far in Malawi. This is just a part of informing the world what Malawian Muslims are doing now towards the development of the Muslim community,” he told MalawiMuslim.com when he was preparing for his trip.
