Mulhako says Kaduya is Lhomwe paramount chief to replace late Ngolongoliwa

Mulhako wa Alhomwe says senior chief Kaduya of Phalombe is the new Lhomwe paramount chief. She replaces paramount chief Ngolongoliwa who died in July 2019.

Mpuluka in black suit: Mulhako has new CEO

“If she is confirmed then she will become the first  female Paramount Chief in Malawi,” said the Mulhako wa Alhomwe Board Secretary Muchanakhwaye Mpuluka in a statement.

The Lhomwe cultural grouping has also appointed Pius Mvenya Jr, as its new chief executive officer replacing Mpuluka.

Located a few metres away from Luchenza, Chonde in Mulanje District is the place where  the headquarters of the Lhomwe tribe is located. The place was founded by the former president of Malawi Bingu wa Mutharika, the board of trustees and the Lhomwe chiefs.

The Lhomwe people originated from Mozambique and settled in the southern part of Malawi. Others settled in Zomba but most of them settled at the foot of the Mulanje Mountain. The group came in 12 various groups some of which are the Amilauani, Amanyala, Amatha, Alikhukhu, Amalivothi and the famous Agulu.

The Lhomwes have various cultural aspects which distinguish them from other ethnic groups. Some of these are their dances which include Soopa, Malathu—a dance done by elderly women, selebwede and the chinamwali dance.

The group is also known for its famous plant gondolosi. This plant is said to be of great significance in a man’s sexual life as it helps him to be strong and good in bed. Yums is also another plant which is cherished and eaten by the Lhomwe.

At their headquarters in Chonde, various Lhomwe aspects are showcased. Some of their houses (Namulukuwa), moulded pots and plates, traditional medicine (Gondolosi), ancient clothes and bows and arrows (Mithungo).

Iam proud to be born a Lonwe like people of other tribes. Be proud of your tribe. Some of you dont want to be associated with your tribe
Lonwe is power. They are gender sensitive. Next time we shall have Lonwe Lady as president not akweni with shameful mouth when she speaks

Proud of my Lomwe Tribe. Anthu ansangala. Our women are the most polite and beautiful, lighter in complexion and have elegant katundu, yes full package with zokoka. You can’t get a glance of a Lomwe woman’s package without getting horny unless if you are dead down there. And our men have very big gazungas which are left to dangle free from kabudula wa chiwaya to attract beautiful women. And a normal woman can not resist it after seeing a dangling fully-grown hot shaft of a Lomwe man, mpakana ayilowese basi. We work hard in fields, we work hard in school,… Read more »

I once lived in Phalombe in the mid 90s yo early 2000. That time Kaduna was a Village Headman. The only TAs were Mkhumba & Nazombe. Now Muluzi promoted Chiwalo & Kaduna to Sub TAs. My question is why should a Village Headman not this lady in question, becomes a Paramount Chief???? What Criteria do they follow??? There are a lot of senior chirfs in Phslombe, Mulanje, Thyolo, Chiradzulu etc I thought this goes with seniority of their Chieftainship???? Ngolongoliwa as well was Village Headman then elevated to Paramount. Ife timsyesa kodi za Ufumuzi paja amati nza kumagazi??

So if Chewas in the Central Region will want their Paramount Chief they will just propose. Or we should wait for Lundu to die

Has Mulakho got the mandate to be picking chiefs? (These chieftainships should be abandoned, on grounds that they’re a source of corruption.)

The sole purpose of the article was to say that Lhomwe’s only know Gondolosi, they are not good at anything, no skills, no prominence but just Gondolosi. It reminds me of well written Nazi propaganda stories. Well written, well done
