Brother Aman Kunje, former deputy secretary general of Muslim Association of Malawi, has brushed as ‘untrue’ reports that he was chased out of the first meeting organized by the new MAM executive, which took place on Monday 1 May 2011 at Blantyre Islamic Mission.
As per requirement, the meeting was meant to choose new secretary general and his vice. A well placed source told Malawi Muslims Official Website that Aman Kunje attended the meeting and he was booted out because his was no longer in the executive. Some folks also expressed dismay at his presence at the meeting.
Speaking to Malawi Muslims Official Website, Aman Kunje confirmed attending the meeting and challenged all people who are alleging that he was chased out, to wait and see the minutes.
“Who told you? I was not chased out, I attended the whole meeting and all those who are making those allegations should wait for the minutes of the meeting to come out,” he said.
“What actually happens is that when the old committee is dissolved, the new committee meets to discuss certain positions, like in this case they were talking about the position of secretary general. So, as a former deputy secretary, I was not allowed to attend the discussion about the new SG…I had to wait outside, and there is nothing wrong with that because that is how it is supposed to be,” clarified brother Kunje, but didn’t say whether he was invited or not.
However, Kunje said the meeting failed to come up with a name for the position of Secretary General until another meeting. Rumour has it that Kunje might serve as acting SG while aspirants namely Dr Mustaffa Hussein, Sheikh Dr Salmin Omar and Sheikh Mustahab Ayami, have been asked to submit their credentials for scrutiny.
Meanwhile, Nyasa Times has carried an article, which says Aman Kunje received contacts from some DPP officials to make sure that Idrissa Muhammad won the election.
“Dr. Ntaba called the chairperson of the electoral commission of MAM Aman Kunje to make sure that Mohamed wins the elections. DPP is doing this because it wants to win many Muslims to its side so that they have some votes in 2014,” said a MAM official, according to Nyasa Times.
This Saturday, the newly elected team is to hold a celebration party at Mpingwe Sports Club and some members have already started receiving invitation cards, MalawiMuslims.Com has learnt.
If brother Aman kunje confirmed that he attended the first mam nec meeting at chadzunda then this confirms what nyasa times wrote because as far as we re concerned he is former deputy secretary general.By the way, we also hear that the same meeting confirmed him as an executive member as a token for the job well done and from there they had a luncheon at mia's house.DPP WOYEE
aKunje ndinu wochenjeradi osaasiya makobili aDPP choncho. Idyai nawo. Koma bwinotu ndiMulungu, akuona zonse zomwe mukupanga mudzina lake. DPP zedi
Even I do not know your language that much but i think i pick what you are saying akhy. I find it strange why we muslims are too suspicious of each. "Laa tajassus"-Do not spy on one another, Why do we always say he/she ate (or better misused the funds) just because he had a position authority and usually without any proof. This is a disease in our beautiful Ummah. If anybody abused his position in MAM and we have no proof of that, its not for us to judge but leave to Allah and avoid spreading fitnah for our brothers and sisters. Avoid this Ghiba yaa Ikhwaan, it may just land us in the nnaar of Jahannam, May Allah Azwajal protect us all…..
I think there is a need to differentiate between political positions and religous positions. The earlier we realise and adopt this, the better. The reason why there are so much talk on each other is because we take these positions as a matter of life and death and yet this supposed to be about serving the deen-Islam. There is no need for character assassinations. Such practices are unIslamic and should be avoided by all means. Let us as muslims set a precedence on this issue. Allah willing,we will succeed in our duties without mudslinging.
