Lilongwe Muslim Students Association elects new chairperson

Lilongwe: The Lilongwe Muslim Students Association has elected a new chairperson with other board members who will run the positions for two years.

The elections were held at Lilongwe Technical College on Sunday September 16, 2018 where students from different schools gathered to witness and choose their leaders who will be guiding them for two years in any activity related to Islamic faith and secular education.

Harry James a student from Lilongwe Technical College emerged the winner and was crowned chairman after defeating his counterpart with 70 votes to 40.

After the elections, the newly elected chairperson had nothing to hide but joy was what he carried.

I am very pleased that I won the elections and being in this big position, I don’t take it for grated but I promise that I will work fully with fellow students. I will also make sure that every member of LIMSA is working at each and every corner for us to promote and move forward with our organization, James said.

The outgoing chairman who saved the position for the past two years, Shukran Juma was also very delighted that the position is being handed over to the righteous student that people have chosen.

We are the pioneers of this group. We have saved for our limited time and it is time for other students to take over and I hope that the organization will continue growing as it has been and the newly elected members will bring in some innovations which will contribute to the survival of the group, Juma remarked.

LIMSA was established way back in early 90s with the aim of being a bridge between the Lilongwe students and other big organizations like the Muslim Association of Malawi and schools around the Lilongwe district.
