Government has been urged to acknowledge its own mistakes and accept the choice of the Bemba speaking people for Paramount Chief Chitimukulu.
Patrick Mucheleke a member of the Bemba Royal Establishment (BRE) says the choice of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu is final.
Mr. Mucheleka, who is also Lubansenshi Constituency Independent Member of Parliament, says the Bemba Royal Establishment followed the laid-down procedures leading to the enthronement of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as Paramount Chief Chitimukulu.
He says he does not understand government’s basis of argument that the right procedure was not followed in choosing the Paramount Chief Chitimukulu when everything was done in accordance with the laid-down procedure.
Mr Mucheleka adds that government is not part of the Bemba Royal Council hence has no powers to interfere in the royal succession.
