Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Minister Nkandu Luo says government will not be forced to Gazzette Henry Kanyatta Sosala as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu of the Bemba speaking people.

Professor Luo told Parliament today in response to a question by Lubansenshi member of parliament Patrick Mucheleka who wanted to know why government has not recognized the newly installed Paramount Chief Chitimukulu.

Professor Luo says she will not dance to the tune of the media or the public with regards the Gazetting of the new Chitimukulu who she referred to as gentleman.

She says gazzeting of Chiefs is not automatic.

She adds that as Minister she will not act outside the law.

Professor Luo further stated that any Chief who has not been gazzetted by the President and is performing the functions of Chief is going against the law.
