A senior chief of Ngoni in Mzimba has described as naïve suggestions from some quarters that the powerful Ngoni district of Mzimba be dismantled into three.

Inkosi Kampingo Sibande: Cautions on Mzimba split

Inkosi Kampingo Sibande said those propagating for the split are myopic and naïve and will regret later if they are humans.

“Government does not allocate development resources in a district just because it is big and vast but rather because of population, which is the fact of the matter. If this was the case then Neno could have been the most developed district in the country but look it is the smallest and probably the poorest,” argued the Ngoni Chief.

Chief Mbelwa the fourth who passed on two years ago used to argue that the name Mzimba means human body therefore he said it was bizarre to think of splitting a human body.

The current Ngoni chief also vehemently opposes to suggestions of splitting Mzimba into three districts.

Dan Nkosi, Chairman of Mbelwa District Council, where Mzimba belongs, refused to comment on the matter.

He however said the council has allocated a two day full council meeting on the issue next week.

Nkosi conceded the council is grossly split over the matter.

Dont be selfish. SPLIT MZIMBA THEN DONORS MAY HELP YOU. You need 3 district hospitals in that district which is not possible if it remains united as you are saying. even the quota system will still hit you hard because if… Read more »

The issue is sensitive and need not need to consult our chiefs when we come to split the district into three development set ups. Why this? The district under subject only needs intellectual minds at government level to duly come up with such positiveness decisions. Mzimba development derails lie into the traditional leadership 80% truth. The reasons been that, our chiefs lose opportunities at hand such as winning scholarships from government cofers for them to pursue studies that could enable them understand policies that vie the concept of dividing the district for benefit of all Malawians living in the district… Read more »
