Lower Shire chiefs honour MCP’s Mia with ‘Mbuya’ title

Chiefs  from the  Shire Valley districts of Nsanje and Chikwawa have honoured the opposition Malawi Congress Party (MCP) deputy president Mohammad Sidik Mia with a traditional ‘Mbuya’  tittle for what they called his interest to serve the aspirations of the people from the two districts.

Mia is crowned as Mbuya

The title ‘Mbuya’  whose literal meaning is  granny was once given to the lowershire political giant late Gwanda Chakuamba and is depicting Mia as the only person deserving respect in the Lower Shire after Chakuamba.

Group village headman (GVH)Mtemangawo of Traditional Authority (TA) Malemia said that despite the two  lower shire districts of Nsanje and Chikwawa facing perennial hunger  year in out due to drought and floods, its sad that politicians are yet to come up with permanent solutions.

Group Village Headman Mtemangawo said  Mia has demonstrated interest to transform the area once the MCP alongside it’s political party partners form the next government.

He was speaking at Bangura Community Ground over the weakend when the MCP vice president held a political rally alongside other political allies in ‘Tonse Alliance’

“It’s sad that we have been singing the same old song of hunger in the shire valley for dacades,It appears we have been neglected, we need change” said group Mtemangawo who said was speaking on behalf of other  40  chiefs from the districts of Nsanje and Chikwawa.

During the rally the chiefs handed over a walking stick to the MCP vice president symbolising his old status.

On his part Mia said he was honoured to be recognized as the political god father (mbuya) by the chiefs a title he was already known with in other political circles.

Mia said he realise the responsibility he has to serve the aspirations of not only the people from the Shire Valley but also the nation as a whole under the MCP.

The ‘Mbuya’ launched his political life in early 2000 as a member of Parliament for Chikwawa Nkombedzi Constituency and has been serving as a Cabinet Minister since then before he was picked as a running mate for Dr Lazarus Chakwera of MCP in the courts  annulled 2019 elections.
