Vice President Saulos Chilima on Sunday attended the Nkomano wa Maseko Ngoni called by Inkosi Gomani V at his headquarters at Lizulu in Ntcheu.

Chilima at Nkomano wa Maseko Ngoni

Chilima: let’s love one another

Chilima sits on the floor as respect for culture

Chilima, who is also an Impi (adviser) to Inkosi Gomani, the supreme leader of the Maseko Ngonis in the country, was at one point seen sitting on the floor together with his wife Mary. Both were in traditional Ngoni regalia.

He knows his place within the cultural set up. To think that he is the State Vice President and is sitting on the floor just shows how humble he is. He did not even use the red carpet or red chair which symbolizes power, ” said John Dzimwenje who attended the function.

Speaking at the function, Chilima observed that Ngonis are known for their spirit of observing cultural values and that there is need to embrace this characteristic and take pride in their culture.

A true Ngoni is not timid and all Ngonis across the country must move according to this principle,” said Chilima.

He also asked Ngonis to take an active part in conserving the environment and all programmes that promote development of the country as a whole.

“I would also advise you to love one another and love this country that God has given us because he will not give us another country; this is the only country that He has given us. So let’s love our country, let us conserve the environment and let’slove one another,” said Chilima.

Inkosi Gomani V updated the gathering on his trip to South Africa where he was visiting Ngonis in the original home of the tribe where he was honoured with lion’s skin.

This year we will launch a programme where I will be visiting various areas among the Maseko Ngoni to monitor progress of my people in areas of Education, Health and Environment, said Inkosi Gomani V.

The Inkosi also said he is in the process of selecting members into the Ngoni Heritage Foundation steering committee to spearhead the operationalization of the Heritage.

He advised chiefs to take an active part in promoting the rights of women by making sure that the girl child is adequately educated and by ending gender based violence against women in all its forms.

I am a Ngoni but only speaks Chichewa and Tumbuka pang’ono. I have accepted that Ungoni wanga udatha. Kwatsala nkumavala zikumba za a gologolo and clapping hands for Gulewamkulu. As Ngonis we need someone to teach our children the language. We can hire a Tchangane or Zulu to revive the language. Pano the Ngonis of Mzimba are full of Tumbuka and the Ngonis of Mchinji, Ntchisi, Dowa, Dedza, Ntcheu, Mwanza and Chileka are Chewas busy with gulewamkulu. The same applies to Lomwes. Alamu Pumani Mwakalamba amangodziwa moni yekha basi. The language is dying. I envy Tumbukas, Senas and Yaos. Pa… Read more »

Am a Malawian of Mixed Tribe.As that’s the Reality of the New Malawi – we have so many People of Mixed Tribe.Intermarrying is the New Norm.We don’t Need leaders who Kakamula zinthu za Tribe.We need a leader who understand the New Malawi. So Chilima should be very careful on how he Projects himself.It may win him the Tribal Vote but Cost him the Majority Young Mixed tribe – Open minded Malawians. We don’t Want another Tribal Patron as President.

Countrymen, I am a Chewa from Kasungu and Ntchisi and I feel proud to be one. I am sure too that most Malawians do take pride in the “accident” of tribe, region, district or village that God “dropped” them when they arrived here on earth. In Chewaland we also take pride in the cultural values that our ancestors bethrothed on us of the modern generation. When I am home I take pride in seeing a variety of gulewankulu masks, women dancing chintala(li) or dusha or chisamba or chimdidi. When I grew up in the village my Kasungu side of village… Read more »

Angoni timangokakamira ungoniwo. Pano tasanduka Achewa ndi Atumbuka basi. My father at least adaboola Makutu mwa ungoni but ended up in dambwe. Saulosi anali wa mu Nyambadwe uyu. Ndi oboola khutu? Did he wear zikumba at school? Today he is settled at Njewa and doesn’t have a village at Lizulu. What remains of Ngonis is kumwa Mowa and selling gondolosi at Lizulu.

@Kent Y.G. Mphepo:
I can’t believe I have actually read your piece in its entirety.
My only comment is: Don’t stress out about how Chilima discern people from different tribes in this country, or how he will essentially distinguish aNgoni from other people from the other tribes.
The guy has no political acumen, and he will NOT win the Presidency in the coming elections. Simple as that. A Malawi anachenjera.
And the sooner his supporters, like Kaliati (see her in the picture?) realize that the better; as they can head back to their homes kukalima nyengo ino.

Don’t use words you are not even sure about or what they mean. What does political acumen mean to you?
I personally do not like some arrogance with Chilima’s speeches.
But he’s the undoubtedly the man of the moment, charismatic, kutsitsa m’fundo, resonating with the populace across tribes, regions

Nchilima be careful. You can fool a Lomwe and will be just looking at you but when says enough is enough please take cover for your life. Ask lomwe peoplue the meaning of this word “MUHOME”
if you hear this word just run away he will not spare the knife. Kalindo and kaliati know very well.
Don’t think Lonwes are fools. Remember what Lonwes did to Nyngoni which led them to say “Nyemba vikulu vikulu zidapha Agigo”

Iwe mulakhoism sibwino kumanyozana mitundu. In my house for over 15 years the people I have employed as Housekeeper, cook, Gardeners have been lhomwes . Can you claim that Lhomwes are not educated? For your information at Independence Ntcheu (Maseko Ngonis) had more graduates than any other tribe. We began to see more graduates from the North where you probably come from after the 70s (Unima) for reasons which have been well documented. …favouritism, Donton Mkandawire at MANEB not forgetting what Kanyama Chiume did when he was Minister of Education.
