Respect (even love) the tribal grouping but do not make the mistake of becoming its patron!!!! We are in the political era of 50%+1, you will need the whole country (all tribes); becoming the patron of a select tribal grouping will mistaken you for treating that tribe favorably whether true or not!!

What would a Chewa Chief do with a courtesy call to a Chewa president? Entrenching nyau culture in the presidency. Pure and simple.

Kyungu wayambapo yake ija!

I don’t like this guy. He always tows a partisan line of the govt in power. At least, one can expect royals like Mmberwa and Gomani to be truly independent-minded when it comes to interfacing with the new govt. These two young Ngoni royals won’t hesitate to display their displeasure once the new govt starts to go off-track, so I hope.

Once again, congratulations, Dr Chakwera!

President Chakwera must be aware of some chief’s like Kyungu who lived in their own Malawi in the past 14 years of DPP rule because of their opportunistic behaviour.

True! Kyungu is precisely the “handclapper” Chakwera warned us against in his inauguration speech. Please never give him any “free handout “. Chindere ichi. Ase!

Kyunngu has no room in the government he is the same with dausi, pitala, ntaba, chage golo and the like. Kyungu is most stupid chief in the northern region I come from his district but I don’t like his readership if we were to vote he would have gone together with pitala. Chakwera and Chilima be on the look out with this kyungu please
