But why did Ben go to install a chief when the matter is in court? This is wrong. In my view I would think he or whoever sanctioned this is the chief perpetrartor of evil

Don’t blame the Bongololo camp. The minister has shown his immaturity by proceeding to install someone yet wrangles are still in court.

The vacancy has been there since 2018. These people have failed to agree on one person. The government isn’t involved in appointing chiefs.Ben came there on invitation for the installation only..

If you may say a tumbuka this are the real from nkhamanga kingdom rumphi district gonapamuhanya. Where is our country Malawi leading us to. We don’t buy leadership. This mtima has been acting as paramount chief before the death of his late dad who choose his as nex leader. How come the bongololozi. Where were you to discuss these issues before the death of paramount chief the dad to mtima.

We have a new way of resolving conflicts tsopano mdziko muno and it is very barbaric, every leader must brace for hard times..sometimes we think its only politics we engage mob justice but the tentacles reach far..to our societies and down to families…sikale tiziona mamuna wapha mkazi or other way round chifukwa ayambana…za midzi tinaona kale ku Nkhatabay…
