Chewa Heritage Foundation, an umbrella body of the Chewa grouping in Malawi has admitted that they were late in conveying the message about the visit of their paramount leader for all Chewa’s in Malawi, Mozambique and Zambia, His Majesty Kalonga Gawa Undi.
The sentiments comes following government’s decision to stop Gawa Undi from visiting Malawi citing that there are few important measures that need to be put in place before a person of Gawa Undi’s calibre visit the country which include security among others.
The government through Local Government Minister Kondwani Nankhumwa stated that they were not informed in time about the chiefs visit hence the cancellation of the trip.
Chewa Heritage Foundation Chairperson Kanyama Phiri admitted that they were on the wrong side and that they have currently rescheduling the program.
“We informed the government but late. We wrote the government through the Ministry of Local government on 7th with Gawa Undi expected to arrive on 9th September” said Kanyama Phiri.
Kanyama Phiri further said they will also communicate with President Peter Mutharika in time about Gawa Undi’s expected visit through Senior Chief Lukwa.
As per tradition, Gawa Undi always meet the President whenever he visits Malawi this is according to Phiri.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
