The call was also echoed by Minister of Local Government and Rural Development Kondwani Nankhumwa .
“My ministry is facing a lot of challenges due to an increase in cases of chieftaincy wrangles. We are failing to install a number of chiefs due to court injunctions, I am pleading with you people to avoid this,” said Nankhumwa.
The youthful chief is survived by a wife and two children.<
