Kachali accuses Mutharika of shunning major Ngoni cultural events
Former State vice-president Khumbo Kachali has accused President Peter Mutharika of shunning major Ngoni cultural events in Mzimba.
Kachali made the accusation at the unveiling of a mausoleum of the late Inkosi ya Makosi M’mbelwa IV where President Mutharika delegated Minister of Finance, Economic Planning and Development Goodall Gondwe to represent him.
Leader of opposition and Malawi Congress Party (MCP) president Lazarus Chakwera, Speaker of Parliament Richard Msowoya, legislator Joseph Chidanti Malunga of the Chilima Movement and Aford’s Frank Mwenifumbo attended event at Edingeni Royal Headquarters.
In his remarks, Kachali said unlike former presidents – Ngwazi Kamuzu Banda, Bakili Muluzi, Bingu wa Mutharika and Joyce Banda – the incumbent Mutharika has never visited the headquarters.
“All President, starting with Kamuzu Banda have visited us here at Edingeni, except the incumbent. Those of you close to the President need to remind him to be with people,” said Kachali.
Kachali, who is member of Parliament for Mzimba South West, said Mutharika should set his foot at Edingeni.
But Gondwe in response said Mutharika is still in power and will visit Edingeni as Head of State “tomorrow or in three year’s time”.
Gondwe’s response attracted boos from the audience who opined that Mutharika may not be in power for a long as the Minister stated.
Nonetheless, Gondwe promise to deliver the message to Mutharika.
Speaking on behalf of the chiefs and the M’mbelwa family, Senior Chief Mtwalo, said Ngoni chiefs in Mzimba will not be manipulated by the President to be paraded as political stooges of the ruling party as other chiefs elsewhere.
“We are not manipulated by presidents . Even now, a presudent cannot manipulate us. He cannot telll us what to say in public . We learn this from our father ,” he said.
Ntwalo shamed chiefs who are being manipulated and paraded on state broadcaster to pledge their support to ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), saying “what kind of chiefs are these? We don’t do that.”
Mkhosi Jere, first born son of the late M’mbelwa the fourth, ascended to the throne as M’mbelwa V . The 33-year Old was hailed for setting an example of how Malawians need to respect departed leaders.

Really Kachali,can you waste your time to accuse Muthalika for not attending major cultural events? This guy is a die-hard tribalist that much you know why bothering even if he doesn’t, Northerners loose nothing.Banda did the same thing,where is he now? His brother Bingu killed 18 people in Mzuzu for demonstrating against segregation and for human rights where is he?The Northerners have undergone intorelable maltreatment for 50 years of independence Kachali knows that,why wasting his time with down to earth tribalists.Iam just praying to GOD to direct Chilima to the right direction if he wins the election in 2019.LONG LIVE… Read more »
Wakalamba uyu amakanika kuyankhula zomveka pano.
Northerners you are pompous for nothing you wanted APM to come there so that you should insult him after all we don’t need your votes
I am praying to God that Malawi doesn’t degenerate to a tribal-driven country like Kenya or Nigeria. DPP leadership should work hard to unite Malawians irrespective of tribe, culture, creed, region, religion or gender orientation. Tribalism and regionalism will only bring civil war and anarchy. I am pleading with Chief Servant Peter Mutharika, to rise to the occasion and begin to embrace Malawi’s divesity and lead by example by ensuring he is not perceived to favour one tribe/cultural grup against the other. Tonse ndife a Malawi.
Major Lomwe cultural events???????? kkkkkkkkk u major ulipati hahahahahaha!!!!!!!!
A Goodall, musadele nkhawa ndi a Mtwalowo, kutereko anali atabanduka ndi maraida monga anawadzudzula akuluakulu a Livingstonia synod. That Inkosi is well known for kuyaka, if you don’t believe me ask Livingstonia Synod.

Shame on him and goodal………………. dziwanthu zodzikonda!! Pano zikulakalaka kubadwanso kuti dziyambilenso mu msinkhu wa zaka…………………………….. koma ataaaaaaaaaaa sizingathekeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee, mukamufuse kamuzu ankakonda kutchulidwa wa muyaya pano ali kutiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii?
Does this dunderhead think the whole president should attend tomb unveiling? Is it a funeral? Nonsense. No wonder JB rejected him for running mate.
You Patrick Phiri, you are a big fool. So it is sensible for Mutharika to attend to half-naked girls at a ceremony or open a toilet at a school? Foolish Lomwes. No wonder people in other countries are laughing at Malawians for having APM as president. The fact is APM has tribalism to the bone.
