Ngonis tells Malawi govt: Mzimba is Kingdom governed by Mmbelwa

People of Mzimba, mostly Ngonis, through Mzimba Heritage Association (Mziha), have written Malawi government for recognition of Mzimba district as a Kingdom governed by his majesty Inkosi ya Makhosi Mmbelwa.

Inkosi Mbelwa V : Governing Mzimba Kingdom

Mzimba Heritage has asked government o honour the records that clearly show Mzimba as a Kingdom and M’mbelwa as King.

They have warned against applying customary land laws to it, saying land issues are the prerogative of Inkosi Mmbelwa their King.

“Today, Malawi government must recognise that Mzimba is governed by his majesty Inkosi ya Makhosi Mmbelwa V through Mmbelwa Chiefs Council,” reads the letter to government.

It adds: “Mombera Kingdom made a treaty with the then Nyasaland government under the British colonial government in 1904. Mzimba is in dialogue with Malawi government over Mombera Kingdom under 1904 treaty.”

The letter further reads: “ The consensus among people of Mzimba and chiefs of land issues is that Mzimba is a kingdom and issues if land are a prerogative of his majesty Inkosi ya Makhosi Mmbelwa.

“We, therefore, wish to remind the ministry that the issue of customary land tribunal and district tribunal do not arise in this context.”

Ngonis in their letter stated that Mzimba believes in mutual respect, unity and coexistence and hopes the same will apply with government of Malawi.

Surely these are the last days. Kingdom against kingdom. Tribal wars. Coronavirus after Ebora. Let us repent.

From all my literal encounters as an amateur historian i have never come across an instance where tribalism or ideas of superiority have been of any benefit to a diverse people..we have to accept everything that comes with it if this is the path Malawians want to take..

We always need to understand the root cause of an issue and that root cause need to be adressed. The issue in contention here is not about tribes but land. We cannot build Malawi because we always think tribalistic that is why we have had failed state just as we have been in since multiparty was ushered in except the first five years of Bingu(MHSRIP).

The Ngoni debate raises many questions people are failing to answer well. Was Nyasaland, now Malawi, born Nyasaland? How was the territory, called Nyasaland, now Malawi, created? How did the North, with its many tribes, the Centre with its many tribes and the South with its many tribes come together to form or create what is Malawi today? Is Malawi a nation-state or civic state? If you know you don’t have any idea about these questions, please leave it to those who know to explain better. There is a good reason why Tongas, Ngonis, Chewas, Senas, Lomwes, Yaos , Tumbukas… Read more »

So what is your point then? Have you not read or heard about the 1884 Berlin Conference?

I have heard and read much about the Westfallia treaty of 1884. What has that to do with my question you bloody nincompoop? If you you don’t understand things well it’s better to keep quite than exposing gross stupidity.

They are taking a very dangerous path. My fellow Malawians condem and stay away from tribal politics. Tribalism has no future in Malawi. I was listen about the three kinds of people in any given society as described by the Greek philosophers; the idiots, the triabalists and the citizens.

Kandulu you are in a dark. You can divide your districts into Likoma from Nkhatabay, You can split Mulanje into Mulanje and Phalombe, You Can Bring in Balaka as a district from Machinga I BET YOU YOU WILL NEVER BREAK THE VAST MZIMBA DID YOU KANDULU FIND OUT WHY?????

It is not about Tribalism. Go into emperical records and Talk Later or else change Mbelwa District Council to Mzimba District Council.

AM TALKING FROM KNOWLEDGE. Find out MZIMBA CAN BE A STATE LIKE SWAZILAND AND LESOUTH IN SOUTH AFRICA. IT HAS THAT MANDATE, IT IS A KINGDOM.

The Mbelwa ppl can go back to SA where they run away from their civil wars and form their Kingdom there and NOT in mlw.
