Muslim MPs donate to Maula Prison
As Muslims are preparing to observe Eid-Ul-Fitr prayers, a group of Muslim Members of Parliament has donated iftar to inmates at Maula Prison.
Speaking after handing over rice and sugar to the prisoners chairperson of the grouping which comprises 18 Islamic law makers Yaumi Mpaweni said they had decided to donate the items because inmates lack a lot of necessities.

“We thank Muslim legislator for considering us because the items will reduce some of the challenges we face,” said Osman.
