The President said this Saturday at Thyolo Community Centre ground when he elevated Traditional Authority (T/A) Ngolongoliwa to senior chief status.

During the ceremony, Mutharika said Mulhako wa Alhomwe should  work with Senior Chief Ngolongoliwa in coming up with  the book .

The President said the book should be ready by October 25 2016, when the Lhomwes meet for their annual celebrations.

Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa commended President Mutharika for elevating Ngolongoliwa saying the gesture symbolizes that the President understands the importance of chiefs in the development of the country.

Chewa influential chief from Kasungu, Senior Chief Lukwa observed the need for all cultures in the country to start promoting their traditions and values by strengthening their various heritages as this could be a source of revenue.

“The heritages such as Mulhako wa Alhomwe can be a source of revenue to the country apart from preserving different cultures.
“This can be facilitated through the Ministry of Information and Tourism. We need therefore to work hand in hand for us to achieve this,” said Lukwa.

Lukwa therefore asked the President to consider constructing a better house; court room and an office for Senior Chief Ngolongoliwa that would enable him discharge his duties as a chief effectively and comfortably.

Some of the notable figures that attended the ceremony included former president Bakili Muluzi, Chief Secretary to Government George Mkondiwa, members of Parliament (MPs) and traditional leaders.

Do really Malawians care about your so-called professors and intellectuals?You are a professor,but you are failing to run our nation.Malawians know about their cultures and traditions better than you by far.I strongly dispute with your assertion that Lomwe’s cultures and traditions will bring them revenues.Hard work and innovative skills will bring some badly needed revenues for your people.However,I strongly believe that every Malawian ethnic society has culture and tradition which were left to them by their ancestors thousands of years ago and are still alive and kicking.How would someone’s culture or tradition could be a source of revenue?

Do we really need traditional leaders in the democratic dispensation? Traditional leaders connived with slave traders during the pre-colonial rule. They were bed fellows with colonialists. They used to preside at the single party traditional courts to deal with enemies of the regime. Furthermore they have advocated for third term and open terms during Muluzus rule. Do you remember about flag change and support of Mutharika??? Useless institution.
