Garrulous Chief Lundu calls Goal Malawi organisation ‘stupid’, bans it in Chikwawa

The controversial Chief Lundu, a paramount chief of Chikwawa on Sunday banned one of the leading humanitarian organisations in the country, Goal Malawi to stop operating in his jurisdiction claiming its officials are “stupid” and rude.

Paramount Chief Lundu welcomes State Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima to the DPP rally

Lundu made the remarks during a public rally President Peter Mutharika held at McHale Trading Centre in Chikwawa.

Nyasa Times understands that Goal Malawi is distributing maize to the people affected by hunger in the Lower Shire and Lundu expressed displeasure with the way the grain is being distributed.

Lundu, sounding tipsy, asked Mutharika to replace the organization with World Vision Malawi.

“Goal Malawi is stupid! What is Goal Malawi? Who are they? I don’t want them to work in my area. They are rude, very rude even to chiefs, tchupitii. We want Malawi World Vision back. We have been working with this organization and their officials are good, very good. I have said it.” said Lundu.

Parliament rejected Lundu’s appointment in the board Malawi Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) saying he is too political and hardly level headed.

In his speech at the rally, Lundu attacked the opposition for playing primitive politics instead of working  together with the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP’s) – led government by offering constructive criticism in addressing some of the challenges the country faces.

He said it is a pity that opposition parties are busy castigating government’s developmental efforts without offering alternative measures.

“We are all serving Malawians for our own betterment. It is a sad to see some opposition leaders continue pulling on the opposite direction whenever government does better,” said Lundu.

He added: “Being in the opposition does not mean that we should not give credit whenever it is due. Such an attitude will never propel us forward; it will just ruin our dream and plans to develop this nation.”

The traditional leader, however, commended government for providing the two Shire Valley districts of Chikwawa and Nsanje with various development projects citing education, health, and agriculture and road infrastructure, among others.

In his address, President Mutharika said government was aware of the challenges people in the country were facing and that his government has a number of projects lined up for implementation to address those problems.

He disclosed that anytime soon, Chikwawa will have a referral district hospital.

Mutharika further promised to see to it that no one dies of hunger and that there is constant supply of medical equipment in health facilities.

With such type of chiefs Malawi can not develop. Words used by some of our chiefs are very unfortunate. You need to change our chiefs especially Lundu and Kyungu.

I wonder where our chiefs are going? A couple of days ago it was Mwankhunikira, Kyungu and now Lundu. Ndalama koma ndalama. Nthawi idzanena posachedwapa. Continue losing your authority in cheap manner.
Ndimapasa ulemu ma fumu awa: Mbelwa Mzimba, Bvumbwe ku Thyolo, Chikulamayembe ku Rumphi, Kachindamoto ku Dedza, Nkosi ya ma kosi Gomanani , Senior Chief Symon ku Neno, TA Chamba ku Machinga, Mkhumba ku Mulanje ndi ena.

Mafumu ukamakumana nawo kunyadira. Ambuye akudaliseni mafumu aulemu oyimira anthu. Lets not politics dent you.

Most of the times when i’m listening to the statements or arguements that these people we call leaders including the president himself in Malawi make; i wonder if these useless people really deserve to be called ” LEADERS”. When they decided to run for whatever position they are holding, didn’t they say ” vote for me because I’ve got a solution to the problems you’re facing?” Or did they say ” vote for me so that you or the opposition will help me to sort-out your problems?” Why our so called leaders are so stupid or take us for fools… Read more »

Mr President clapping hands for the headless chief. A failed chief indeed, it thats the way of solving issues then pipo in his area have no chief. If at all there are issues, one would expect the chief to amicably resolve them and the whole DPP then encourages him.
