‘We’re better united’: Kyungu hosts chiefs from south, centre on cultural exchange

Paramount Chief Kyungu of Malawi’s northern border district of Karonga has asked fellow traditional leaders not to bow down to wishes of some Malawi who want to divide the country saying  God has given him a mission to make sure that Malawi is one nation.

He made the remarks after a three-day-visit of paramount chief Gomani of Ntcheu and Senior Chief Ngolingoliwa of Thyolo he organized in Karonga district on cultural exchange programme.

Kyungu said he organized the function as one way of fulfilling the mission which God has given him to unite Malawi.

“When I was sleeping I had a vision and God has given me a mission to fulfill before I die and this function is the beginning of that mission,” said Kyungu.

Without making a direct reference to the calls of secession and federalism, Kyungu said he was very much concerned that some people want to divide the country “while we are God fearing people and all what we need is unity and love to build Malawi.”

He said the visit of chiefs from southern and central regions here in northern signifies unity among Malawians.

“This is also one way of maintaining our culture because if people forget their culture, they lack patriotism and love. So it is wiser that every ethnic group should be celebrating their cultural values every year to remind the young ones that Malawi is one.”

Paramount Chief Gomani concurred with Kyungu saying love and unity is the instrument to build Malawi not division.

“People can develop their country or district if they are united so what paramount chief Kyungu has done is the beginning of showing people that Malawians are one and in unity we can develop it not in division,” said Gomani.

Senior Chief Ngolingoliwa said: “we have learnt a lot here in Karonga and this should give people a picture that Malawians are one, if Chiefs are together why not people”

Senior traditional leaders from nothern region and Central regions are expected to visit Thyolo chiefs on 26 September on a similar mission.

This is the works of the DPP. They are brainwashing the Chiefs to frustrate the wishes of the people of Karonga. Chief Kyungu has pocketed MK10,000,000 to drive his so called Gods call.

Alfred, you have gone too far on this. The Kyungu is pure royal blood of karonga. Yes he ran away from Kamuzu oppressive regime but that doesn’t make him less royal. You already said his father was Kyungu, that makes him also a rightful Kyungu. Kanyama, orton, yatuta. Chip embere, etc all run away from Kamuzu, did that make them less Malawians. All (some) came back when multiparty came. Yes Kamuzu didn’t like his father because the father had a few sons in exile opposing Kamuzu. One even rose to be Nyerere trusted advisor. The Kyungu chieftainship rotates amongst the… Read more »
