Powerful Lhomwe chief irks Chewa leaders

Powerful Lhomwe chief, Ngongoliwa has stepped on the toes of Chewa traditional leaders following his decision to visit them without going through the Chewa Heritage Foundation.

Ngongoliwa: I am the head of Chiefs Forum

Ngongoliwa: I am the head of Chiefs Forum

Some chiefs in central region are said to be extremely bitter that the Lomwe paramount chief has decided to make the visit to meet the chiefs without a clear agenda.

“He has a hidden agenda. Some of us might not even go to meet him,” said one of the traditional leaders in Lilongwe.

The Lhomwe chief is expected to meet the Chewa traditional leaders from May 21, 2016.

In an interview, chief Ngongoliwa said he is meeting the Chewa traditional leaders and other chiefs in his capacity as chairman of New Chiefs Forum, a grouping of all traditional leaders in the country.

He dismissed fears that he has hidden agenda, saying his meetings with the other chiefs have nothing to do with the Chewa Heritage Foundation.

“This is just an exchange visit. We will be promoting such exchange visits in future,” he said, adding, “we just want to be together, we just want to eat together.”

He described the visit as cultural exchange visit.

“There should be no cause for alarm because of my visit,” he said.

The chief is a confessed die hard follower of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) and comes from the home of President Peter Mutharika.

iwe ngolongoliwa uli powerful to Lomwe Belt NOT Chewas. Ngati wakhuta njoka ndi amene wakutumayo tiona siukwanitsa zolinga kusokoneza o Chewa. Bwanji osamangodya njoka zanuzo ndiye mukakhuta muzivina Tchopa. The Chewas are not ready to welcome you and never attempt to come here. We are ready to give you a bad lesson should you dare to come. Who are you that you want to bring mpichipichi to the other tribes in Malawi? Kodi KU India unakatenga mankhwala odzadyetsa o Chewa kuti mupilize kulamulira? Ngolongoliwa ife zopusazo tukana wamva.

The tricks used by DPP will never stop to amaze me. They use the LHOMWE tribal group in promoting and creating a DPP- Lhomwe hegemony. What I know is that time is the best judge. History takes long to pronounce its judgement.
