Wrangles that engulfed four chiefdoms in Muchinga almost over – Luo


Minister of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs, Nhandu Luo, has disclosed that wrangles that engulfed four chiefdoms in Muchinga province are almost over.

Prof Luo said some individuals impersonating as chiefs must stop and give chance to those officially recogniSed by government.

The minister was speaking when she paid a courtesy call on Isoka District Commissioner, Joe Siwila.

She said peace and development can only take place when chiefs make peace among themselves.

Prof Lou warned all people impersonating as chiefs to desist from the act or face the wrath of the law.

She explained that impersonation is a serious offense and those found funning confusion must be prepared to face the law.

Prof Lou identified the areas where impersonation was rife as Kateyetye, Kafwimbi, Chundaponde and Chibesakunda.

She disclosed that two people want to ascend to the throne in the said areas.
She noted that according to the Chiefs’ Act there is only one person who is recognised by government as chief.

“We cannot allow such eventualities taking place in my ministry,” said Prof Luo.

Prof Luo is in the district resolving wrangles that have characterized the area.
