Kaliati sticks to her story as Mulhako wa Alhomwe starts vigil at her house: Performing rituals

Mulanje West legislator Patricia Kaliati has said she  will not be stampeded by the Mulhako wa Alhomwe members who  on Monday started holding a vigil at her Nkando residence, saying she sticks to her story said at a rally during the official launch of United Transformation Movement (UTM) which is led by Vice-President Saulos Chilima.

Mulhako wa Alhomwe, a cultural ethnic group which is now deeply involved in politics by aligning to ruling Democratic Progressive Party (DPP), is demanding Kaliati, who is former DPP director of women and now the acting secretary general of UTM, to apologise for allegedly disrespecting Lhomwe Paramount Chief  Ngolongoliwa.

Kaliati is maintaining that  Mwene wa Mwamwene Ngolongoliwa  and Mulhako wa Alhomwe chairperson Leston Mulli  were the architects in the formation of the movement.

“Whatever I said is true and I maintain it,” Kaliati said.

She condemned  Mulhako leadership to be using its members to be “threatening one another  or even interfering with someone’s private life.”

Kaliati said the vigil at her Nkando house  is “trespassing.”

Mulhakho wa Alomwe director Muchanakhwaye Mpaluka said they will continue a vigil at Kaliati’s residence  including offering sacrifices to appease their ‘gods’  until the legislator apologises.

The group demanded an apology from Kaliati for skipping the title ‘Paramount’ when she referred to the chief in her political rally address.

Ngolongoliwa said he has never been involved in the formation of any political movement, not even UTM, stressing that doing so would be playing outside his jurisdiction as a traditional leader.

“It is coming as a surprise when some people stand on political podiums to claim that I was part of the formation of UTM,” said  Ngolongoliwa when he addressed 183 traditional leaders at Namphungo, Traditional Authority (T/A) Juma in Mulanje last week  Thursday flanked by T/A Chikumbu of Mulanje.

When the Paramount Chief was asked if he ever attended any meeting together with Kaliati and Noel Masangwi, he said the meetings he and the two were present had different agendas, which were not political.

Chief Ngolongoliwa said: “We are basically children from the same family as Lhomwes. I have ever summoned meetings which had agendas mainly reflecting on my role as a traditional leader and the two have ever been present together with other people.”

Kaliati laughed off Ngolongoliwa’s comments and insisted that what she said is absolutely true.

This is a classic example of why we need development and jobs! If these people had jobs and development programs they would not have time for these ancient rituals in the 21st century

No sympathy for Kaliati. She is reaping what she has sown over the years.

Kaliati in the HOT seat. Let her lose her constituency that’s when she will know that kutukwana sikwabwino.

Didn’t Ngolongoliwa and Multi, on behalf of DPP, organise a meeting at Sanjika to discipline Kaliati and others on the issue of the SKC Movement? How then can the Paramount Chief now say he does not get involved in politics? Sacrifice at Kaliati residence? Is it any wonder we have bizarre stories in Mulanje about Blood Suckers. Idiots these Lhomwes. Still living a dark ages life. I have always maintained that rather than promoting Cultural Activities, the Mulakho is nothing else but a forum for planning thievery led by its Prince of thieves. If you want proof, check what happened… Read more »

This is sad, who has let this dogs out??? They can do this because it is a “Royal” tribe where the president belongs and they can manage to do this. Did they get permission to do this?

Our country has indeed gone to the dogs!

Is this happening in the present day and age? Is DPP this desperate?
