Traditional leaders warned against nepotism

Minister of Local Government has warned chiefs to avoid indulging in nepotistic tendencies in government programmes, pointing out that the ministry will not spare any chief implicated.

In his word of counsel when he elevated five traditional leaders from Kasungu who were promoted by President Dr Lazarus Chakwera, Chimwendo Banda said nepotism and corruption deprive the voiceless of their right to enjoy social services. He went on to advise them to preserve culture but to remove retrogressive cultural beliefs like forced marriages.

“Our chiefs are crucial and we acknowledge their role in development, but we will not condone lawlessness where they sometimes indulge in acts of nepotism,” Chimwendo Banda said.

On behalf of Kalonga Gawaundi the Chewa Chief for Malawi, Zambia, and Mozambique, Senior Chief Lukwa of Kasungu commended President Chakwera for promoting chiefs regardless of region.

The five that have been elevated are Hagison Potiphar Mzaza as  T/A Mdunga, Maxwell Hamison Foster as T/A Chinyama, Yuda Frackson Nyirongo as Senior T/A Chidzuma, Hastings Chitembeya as Senior T/A Mphomwa and Setifa Chimutu as T/A Chisinga all from Kasungu.
