Chikulamayembe ‘forgives’ Mutharika: DPP ask Tumbuka chiefs to thank Malawi leader for ‘favouring’ Rumphi in appointments

Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe of Rumphi has said he has forgiven  President Peter Mutharika on  the fracas on September 30 2016 when members of the ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) wreaked havoc at the Gonapamuhanya ceremony and accepted to  lead a delegation of Rumphi chiefs to visit State House.

Paramount Chief Chikulamayembe of Rumphi:  They didn’t know what they were doing

During the Gonapamuhanya ceremony, where the Tumbuka people commemorate the first Chikulamayembe named Gonapamuhanya because of his tendency to bask in the sun after eating, DPP youth cadets clad in their party attire, threw stones at opposition party leaders including Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera who attended the cultural ceremony at Bolero in Rumphi.

Chikulamyembe had demanded Mutharika to apologise to him eand the entire Tumbuka people with what happened.

But now Chikulamayembe said he has forgiven Mutharika and DPP.

“I have forgiven them because I assume they  did not know what they were doing,” the influential Tumbuka chief said.

He said after DPP campaign director Jappies Mhango, who is also Minister of Transport and Public Works, asked the Paramount Chief to lead Rumphi traditional leaders to Kamuzu Palace in Lilongwe  to “go and thank the President” for appointing three people from Rumphi to senior positions in government.

Mhango said apart from him,  President Mutharika appointed other two sons of Rumphi in key government positions, mentioning DPP legal adviser and the country’s Attorney General Charles Mhango and  Lieutenant Genral Vincent Nundwe as Malawi Defence Force deputy commander responsible for operations.

“We are favoured in Rumphi,” said Mhango when hedonated a K12 million cold room to Rumphi District Hospital mortuary which he and Attorney General purchased.

“President Mutharika has trusted us with different positions… therefore we will  schedule for you chiefs to go and thank the President,” he said.

Chikulamayembe said he has no problem to go and meet Mutharika.

Dzimvere mtolo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We said that all your foolish plans against the govt will slowly be noted and later be rubbished. Your reasons for hating this govt are all silly and stupid. There is nothing reasonable the opposition says that can convince wise people. Is not Aford in a quagmire now? Are they not hitting each other now? Was Chihana not vocal during the Gonapamuhanya ceremony? Is it the Lhomwes who are wounding the Aford Tumbukas? Whatever lies you say against the DPP will come out one day and you will be embarrassed. There is no trick the MCP can do… Read more »

No wonder we are left behind in all aspects of life. How can such thinking be coming from a person of influence on a people…. Your lucky my grandpa Chaka Zulu didn’t kill you last time.

The nature of our politics demands this kind of behaviour. We will always bow down to politicians. We Malawians are so obsessed with politians to the extent that we can do anything stupid to please . Rumphi clears the lies that dpp favours the south. Let’s call a spade a spade. Dpp has distributed positions to all regions. Dpp is doing development in all regions. But because of myopic thinking it is difficult for people to acknowledge this. It could also be that people are just tired of dpp otherwise the party is doing it’s best to improve the life… Read more »

I believe that forgiveness is a noble mark and thank the paramount chief for forgiving those foolish citizens. But thanking the president for appointing able people in position is indeed unwise. So chief are you going to thank him for those clever youth who can’t go to university because of quota system. ba Tumbuka ni vindere nadi mwe . Imwe wa organizing committee ya mwambo ula mwazyomera thena kuti wa chief walute.
