The advise was given during the  coronation of by  Chief Mpezeni of Zambia, a direct kin of the M’mbelwa family who oversees the Ngonis based in Zambia.

“My advice to Mmbelwa is that he should work with government of the day because that is what traditional leaders should do for their areas to develop,”  said Paramount Mpezeni .

Mpezen  earlier conducted Chief M’mbelwa’s coronation in a cattle Kraal in keeping with their Ngoni tradition.

The traditional coronation rites in the cattle kraal was conducted after the  Malawi vice president  Saulos Chilima clad in Ngoni attire had officially installed M’mbelwa as the Paramount Chief in line with the Chiefs Act.

Speaking during the coronation ceremony, Chilima said President Arthur Peter Mutharika was happy that Inkosi ya Makhosi M’mbelwa V was now installed following the death of Paramount Chief M’mbelwa last year.

He hailed the Ngoni of Mzimba for the smooth transition of the M’mbelwa chieftainship and more especially their quest for development.

Among other gifts, Chilima presented a donation of K2 million and a cow to the newly crowned chief from President Mutharika, a clear sign of the President’s support to the chieftaincy.

Former President of Zambia, Rupiah Bwezani Banda, Former Vice President Khumbo Kachali, United Party President Professor John Chisi and Leader of the Opposition in Parliament, Dr. Lazarus Chakwera and other dignitaries were among the people that thronged Edingeni to witness the colourful ceremony spiced with the Ngoni’s popular Ingoma dances.
