Muslim Association of Malawi (MAM) new Executive Committee has appointed Dr Salmin Omar Idrus as new Secretary General for the Association.
The former Special Advisor on Islamic Affairs to Malawi’s President Bingu wa Mutharika has replaced his close friend ex- MAM Secretary General Dr Imran Shareef Mahommed who was eyeing for the Association’s chairmanship in the just ended elections.
According to a press release issued by the mother body, Ali Twanje has since taken over as Deputy Secretary General role from Amani Kunje.
January Bwanali has been shifted to the position of Acting Executive Director after his ally, Saiti Jambo was sent to a forced leave.
“The new Executive Committee has indeed fully appointed its members and the names will be announced on a press conference which scheduled to take place before June 20, 2011,” reads part of the Press Release.
However, MAM national Chairman Sheikh Idrisa Muhammad said Dr Idrusi has been appointed on merit basis.
“Let me tell you that it was not easy to appoint Dr Idrusi. In fact we had many qualified Muslims who submitted their Curriculum Vitae for the post, but the selection was based on merit. That is why it took long time for the committee to come up with the new name of our Secretary General,” Sheikh Idrisa was quoted by Radio Islam online as saying.

Muslims in Malawi are in a very difficult situation and harder times are just around the corner given the global trends today.It it my prayer and belief therefore those that elected others into positions, did so for sake of Allah, Islam and the Ummah,and that those that have been elected have accepted only for the same sake and not treating MAM as your canteen,It is against that background that I CONGRATULATE ALL OF YOU UPON YOUR NEW RESPONSIBILITIES and pray that you be guided if you yourself also seek that guidance.MUSLIMS IN THAT COUNTRY NEED YOU MORE TODAY THAN EVER BEFORE.
I'am writting on behalf of Malawian Muslim students in Malaysia, to Congratulate the new Executive committee of MAM.
we have been singing a song of change for decades,and our expectation was always to see the youth taking lead and it has happen a ccording to our wish.Muslims have set a marvelous example to all Malawians, that now it's time for youth to carry on. Our advice is therefore,please you the elected and trusted ones, give the best you can knowing that your failure will give a bad impact to all youth of that beautifull country. its your time to show our respected elders that "yes we are real leaders of to day and not tomorrow" as they claim
Good luck may Allah guid you for the beat of Muslim Ummah and whole nation
