Mzomera says North Malawi independence campaigners to hold demo

Peoples Party (PP) Northern region Provincial Chair Rev Christopher Mzomera Ngwira has said the secession call for the north has nothing to do with the former ruling party and that.demonstrations  in support for the north independence will be held soon.

Recently, Chiefs from the region called on PP president Joyce Banda to take disciplinary actions against Ngwira for campaigning for secession.

Ngwira: North Malawi should decide its destiny

Senior Chief Kameme of Chitipa and Senior Chief Fukamapiri of Nkhata Bay made the remarks during a meeting between chiefs and Presidential advisor on unity and parliamentary affairs Symon Vuwa Kaunda.

“We wonder why the party is taking no action against Ngwira whose ideas of the north independence seems to differ with the party’s stand on the issue,” Senior Chief Kumeme.

But Ngwira said the issue is not for political parties but for the northern region.

“This issue is not for an individual but for every person who comes from the north. We know it’s a tough going and its consequences but we will face it and succeed.

“Some of these calls by the chief are not from deep down their heart but because they follow anything from the government that’s why they are saying this,” he said.

Ngwira said had it been that PP won the elections and ignored their wish, they could still demand justice.

He said they will soon announce a date for demonstrations for northern region secession.

I am in full support of Rev Christopher Mzomera Ngwira for advocating federalism or secession. I promise the organisers of demonstrations that many friends of mine have expressed to attend the noble cause of the oppressed northerners. If we want federal system or secession, why it should concern you (southerners)? We need to debate on this matter. We are not being forced in this regard. We have decided and chosen it ourselves. Southerners keep quiet. Hon. Christopher Ngwira don’t give up on this noble cause. Actually it is too late that this is coming to the pick like this now.… Read more »

This is serious business justice needs to prevail. If indeed Malawi is for ‘all’ why should only a few from one one or two districts benefit. Government should not intimidate anyone by downplaying this issue. It’s not just happening in Malawi, look at how Scotland has made England Shake in its boots. Forward Mzomera, Kazombo and the rest concerned parties.

No. 72. Word of advice for you. Never call anyone a fool. Remember sound goes in the air have tendances of bouncing back, one day the same word will haunt you. After all who said education is wisdom. Moses raised as prince having the best education in the world, failed to understand that killing to help a hebrew would haunt him.

Don’t be unnecessary arrogant.

Your Royal Highnesses, the chiefs please allow the debate of Federalism take place,do not shoot it down even for a bundle of a million dollar. You could be hurting the future of your subjects. You are not elected like politicians do, its by customs and culture passed from generations. If you could remember in the time when fighting against federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland, some Chiefs opposed the fight because of bribes and were labelled capricorns. I remember very well when some of our chiefs were humiliated for denying their subjects change. Please refrain from being used by politicians. I… Read more »

Ngwira, you shall not walk alone in this struggle,. We will give you all support that you deserve. The problem here is that government is bribing chiefs/thieves so that they can defeat the idea. but mind you chiefs/thieves can’t influence us even if you give them millions of kwacha, we will fight and fight until we are liberated. More over the money you steal from government coffers to bribe chiefs/thieves is another cashgate!
