“…in the north Kamanga is short for Mkamanga…” Well, that’s good to hear. In one of PP rallies Wakuda Kamanga explicitly distanced himself from Nyika, saying he is Chewa! Names like Moyo, Shumba, Tembo, Mtambo, Chilenga, Chitete, etc. are quite common among Chewas as they are in the North. Don’t forget that Banda, Mwale, Phiri are core Chewa clan names. One other common name among Chewas is Bango. Now, there is a ZBS reporter Mike Bango. How did this common name get that silly pronunciation of his? Oh, that Kamanga is free to be from Ntchisi. Even so, the author… Read more »

Kananga is a Tumbuka from Rumphi while Mkamanga is also known as Mulenga from Chitipa is a Bandya by tribe. Mtambos are also from Chitipa and not from any where else as per your assertion.

Even Paul Robbed as per the bible!!
2 Corinthians 11:8

I robbed other churches by receiving support from them so as to serve you.

* A mysterious statement from Paul. But if he says he robbed, let’s believe him. If it is not true, then he lied, which makes him either a ROBER or a LIAR. Making ambiguous or cute statements in an epistle is unbecoming for an apostle

There is no truth in the story or you mixed up information the information to tarnish the image of NS. Someone by the name of Kamanga can not be from NS. The Kamangas are from kwithu- Rumphi to be specific. And the TA you mentioned does not exist in Ntchisi. Do not feed your readers with lies. When a person steals you say he is from Ntchisi when he excels the following day you say he is from the North. What kind of journalism is that?

Don’t be Stupid, There used to be Bertha Kamanga on MBC and she was from the South.

It all depends how you pronounce the name. Kamanga, or KaManga.

In Ntchisi kumanga is to tie therefore Kamanga.

In the North Kamanga is short for Mkamanga meaning a citizen of Nkhamanga.

Stop being stupid on social media.

No Kamamga is not short for Mkamanga. Mkamanga is a Bandya also known as Mulenga from Chitipa and Kamanga is a Tumbuka from Rumphi.
