Malawians against Lhomwe state formulation

142

Concerned Malawians have opposed the idea to make Mulanje and Thyolo a single state and have also cast a serious doubt on people’s interest to create an independent state.

Instead of engaging in the daunting tasks of nation-building, the Lhomwes have hinted without exception to merge their two districts and form a nation.

Malawians who took time to post their views on Malawi24’s “Maganizo Anu” described the idea as disastrous.

They have described the idea as unwelcome and that it is the birth of conflicts that can culminate in their collective undoing and continued statelessness.

A high percentage of Malawians have raised fears that making the Lhomwe belt a state can end tragically.

Peter Mutharika

His Lhomwe belt wants to secede from Malawi.

The statehood of Mulanje and Thyolo is being championed by People’s Land Organization (PLO) which demands that the locals from the districts get paid for the tea estates that are in the area.

In his post, Desire Simon opposed Lhomwes championing the idea to dismantle the two districts from Malawi.  He added that the problems suffered by the people from districts are due to overpopulation which results in scramble for limited available resources.

“Where were you all these times? Bearing children is not something you have to be proud of and it’s not a development. It’s because of your failure to be self dependence you have lost the land,” read the post.

While Willy Makolija questioned the period the whites have been occupying the lands.

“Azungu akunenedwawa anayamba kulima liti mindayi? Nde mukakhuta deya uko mkumazinamiza kuti mulande minda ati anakubelani, inu mulikuti nthaw imeneyo,” read his views written in vernacular.

However, other concerned Malawians sided with the Lhomwes saying it is the only way local people can be financially stable.

The young generation of Lhomwe activists who came up with the idea with the view of reducing “poverty” do share ambitions and are more committed.

This is evidenced by engagement of Peter Mutharika in addressing the matter.

The idea is also evident in the diverse composition of the movement which comprises self-proclaimed activist, Bon Kalindo.

Among those who sided with the Lhomwe is Smith Moyo: “leave them and let them have their own government.  We are fed up with these people. (Awasiye akhale ndi dziko lawo, a Lomwe atikwana pa Malawi pano,)”

According to Malawi Centre for Advice, Research and Education on Rights (CARER) 60%  of  people  working  as  labourers in Mulanje and Thyolo  and  those  living  around  the  estates  are  illiterate  and this  perpetuates  the  cycle  of  poverty.

Spirit of love one another now is absolutely dismissed. This president expired .he wants to miss leads Gud fans.forsake shhhiiitt go t hell

  4. That’s foolishness of the highest level and its not godly thinking. Am Zambian but I wouldn’t encourage that. Mukadya namkhobwe its better to just drink water instead of thobwa!!! Why do would you come up with such thoughts just to devide the warm heart of Africa???

  5. Kale mukatenge wakumpoto mbazereza wakukhumba kuyıma pawekha sono ıvı vıvıchı nthe kutı mulanje na thyolo vıkhale pavekha kupanga chalo.Kası mbukazuzı uwu.how can that happen for two dıstrıcts to make a natıon.That ıs defınately stupıdıty my fellow Malawıans

  6. Sooo,the lomwes are so tribalistix as to seek isolation from the rest of us!!!?I thought at first when I head most civil servants top jobs are being replaced by lomwes during bingu as just a smear by opposition parties against him.its really that rooted!!!rooted as to seek own autonomy!! All these economic chaos (alegedly,put on us during lomwe leaderships,presidencies), they choose to throw us into baby style fiascal anarchy?come on,if that were the case,the chewas would have been rightly positioned(they are more organised and consistent in their yearly cerebrations)than you guys.you only came to prominence in just the last 10 years.dont waste our fortunes on self elevation you toddler brained

  7. I am very much convinced that the federalists are far better with their call for Federalism Government rather than these Thyolo-Mulanje-Rhetoric Lhomwe Sesessionists.

  8. Anthu akufuna azizimira paokha but do u no how it work olo angofuna dyera chabe,mukulephela maanja anu kutukuka ndiye apa mukwanitsa anthu okonda zaulere inu.u must stop it.

    • my boss or titagawana chotani that cannot bring change. even if we say each village becomes a state… to no avail. Lets think constructively, solutions for problems which malawi is facing are there but we pretend to be blind and deaf. Malawi is NOT a lomwe country but multicultiral state. kodi zitatelo muloza chani ku Mj, Ty and even Phalombe ? mmh?. Dziko losala ili tipita enanadzalinyelela monga tichitila ifemu. y spending tym zapa media zomwezi mpaka kuopsezana? mmmmmm ayi, satelo chonde pepani mutaganizaso bwino.

  11. I am so happy that i have to tell the whole world how i was cured from HIV.Its been a month now and am still negative.I never knew there was a cure till i came across a story of how a lady was cured of HIV by an herbal doctor called dr.IKUKU.I have been living a hopeless like since i tested positive.I contacted him and started taking his herb.Exactly 3 weeks he told me to go for a check up,i went and was confirm negative.It was shocking to me till series other tests still prove that i was negative.Till today i am still negative.All thanks to dr IKUKU.You can contact him if you have any troubling sickness.

    This is real,he cured me and can still cure you.

  12. Where Are We Going as a nation? We never heard this nosense during Kamuzu, Muluzi, Bingu And Jb. Why Now? Is it a sign of a weak government? Some wanted Mangochi to be islamic state, some Mzimba And Others the Northern Region. Is It a way of resolving conflicts at hand. My fellow malawians let me put it clear here that we are not imune from problems but we have pontential to solve them. The first way of solving the problems is unity associated with tolerance, compromise and respect. God bless malawi from chitipa to mnsanje and nkhotakota to mchinji.

    • The idea comes from our current President. Remember he holds dual citizenship status.he is a Malawian american and a Malawian!!His second citizenry country, the USA is a federal government. His full time education is federalism.he dreams as a federal citicen,he teaches federalism and he is only a federal shell in a non federal state.he might hide behind local lomwe leaders as source of all this nonsense but where would these chiefs grown up and know nothing about such systems get the idea?

    • It is also factual that no clan or tribe owns Malawi because they are all sojourners in the land which its indigenous inhabitants were Batwa also known as Kafula.Chewa, mang’anja, tonga, tumbuka,sena,yao,nguni,ngonde,sukwa,ndali,lomwe,etc are all immigrants to Nyasaland.

    • True but when this question arises, it looks at the time frames of inhabiting land. Some came earlier some came later, the later being guests of those who came earlier and had claim to the land but were either displaced or agreed to share with the new comers…Somehow this should ring in people’s minds that they are still guests as they can still identify with the land they came from culturally…

  13. if they are to have there own state, malawi is not a state segmented country, the president is lhomwe so, there will be a need to rewrite the history and map of malawi by both changing the structure and the president because it would have been another issue if the president was not lhomwe #something fishy here #TrustMe

  14. Proud to be chewa by tribe not these foolz, selfishness, rats,bastards (Lhomwe), is Malawi consist of Lhomwe tribe only? Coz to hell with ur nonsense.

  15. I support them and they must go with their own professor pitara Muthalika. These tea farm workers are full of segregation Akweni, Winiko,Bwapini and Mangaya they will form their state
