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.

  7. Paul Antonio Amos Phiri says:

    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.

    I like this name, Ngongoliwa. Yah! Ngongoliwa.

  12. Zenith Losacco says:

    My daughters who by birth are 50% Lhomwe would like a copy of the LHOMWE History book when it is published in October. I would be very grateful if you could let me know where and how much it costs to buy two copies.

    Thank you very much.

    Dont compare this Ngolongoliwa to Gawa undi, ndi mwana kwambiri ameneyu. Akakhuta kalongonda wakeyo azidziwa kuti there are procedures to be followed and mafumu a achewa sangapusitsidwe ndi mbalame imeneyi whatever his agenda may be.

  14. Khuth'upa o'Machemba says:

    Koma iwe Owen Khamula eh: Anthu akuchapa iwe (People are mad at you, mad “heavy”)

    Sign of disrespect when you consistently misspell someone’s name, and you should be embarrassed. (And no need for an apology?) The name is Ngolongoliwa or Ngolongolhiwa; NOT Ngongoliwa! Laziness is no excuse, especially when Google and other search engines are available, almost always.
    And accuracy: When did Ngolongoliwa vacate the Senior Chief position to Paramount Chief? Are you promoting him, now?
    How about the tone: Apparently your tone in the story is to disparage the chief, and enhance disrepute of his people; and the President. I mean, man, there is absolutely NO need for the last line in your article.
    I am NOT a card carrying member of DPP, and I am not a supporter of Ngolingolhiwa, APM’s pet project. Usurping the aLhomwe prestige, when APM literally stole the big title of Paramount Chief of the aLhomwe from Mkhumba, and place it on the lap of Ngolilngolhiwa
    with cash to boot! Hehehehehehehehehe……

  15. vavlov says:

    The salvage chief thinks he is superior to other chiefs because he comes from Malawi’s president home. Who is sponsoring his trip? Malawi is tired of mediocre leadership, so he shouldn’t be campaigning for leadership continuation

  16. MBOLIWA says:

    I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN SAYING THIS THAT “LOMWES NEVER RESPECT OTHERS CULTURAL DOMINANCE”. HOW CAN HE NOT FOLLOW THE PROCEDURES? THIS IS PURE DESPOTIC CHARACTER.

  20. Mapwevupwevu says:

    Why should he go through Chewa Heritage foundation, when was it formed, is it in charge of the Chewa chiefs?

  21. Haiti says:

    So the Author said POWERFUL Chief? Is he?

  22. Modicai Longwe says:

    Chief Ngongoliwa is like a President of all Lhomwe chiefs. So too is Gwaw Undi. There is no way a President of of a big grouping can visit the subordinates of another president without his knowledge. So Chief Ngongoliwa could have set a good example by following protocols not just using short cuts. Next time please make sure you follow all the necessary procedures.

  24. ANALYST says:

    Kodi Ngolongoliwayu wafika pa u Paramount Chief? I thought Paramount Chief wa a Lhomwe ndi Chief Mkhumba??? Koma ngati zili chonchi – mmmm! This dude was a mere Sub-TA a year ago – lero mukuti Paramount Chief wa a Lhomwe? Ndale za ufumu sizabwino – uwona m’mene udzaphuvumukire pamenepo iwe Ngolongoliwa!

  25. Chivute says:

    Achewa tribalism mwafika nayo pamenepa? Strange

  26. Kavunga Lungu says:

    What’s the issue here? I don’t understand

  27. Mbola says:

    The story doesn’t match its tittle, Ine ndimaona ngati ndi nkhani yeni yeni, I think the main reason for this story is to remind people that Ngolongoliwa belongs to DPP, comes from Thyolo and is a Lhomwe , baasi, nothing else. Amatouristic writing.

  28. naphili says:

    Just because dpp is currently the govnt. it does not mean the Lomwe chiefs have the power to push other chiefs around! Look at him! He looks stupid with that ugly woman behind him anyway! Ignorant shits!

  33. “The chief is a confessed die hard follower of ……………………..”What did you expect our Chief Ngolongoliwa to be being a Lhomwe?
