Zambian chief wants Malawians kicked out of the country

417

Chief Chanje of the Chewa people in Chipata Zambia has asked the country’s government to give Malawians living in his area an ultimatum so that they relocate to Malawi.

Chipata

Zambia : Chipata.

In an interview with a local publication at his headquarters in Chipata, Chief Chanje said Zambians were given up to July last year to leave Malawi after the redefinition of the Zambia-Malawi border.

“My complaint is that after the redefinition of the borderline between Zambia and Malawi, some Zambian families found themselves in Malawi and vice versa. Now the Zambians who found themselves on the Malawian side were ordered to relocate sometime back and they obliged but we have not done that to Malawians. Now the coming of my people who were on the Malawian side has put pressure on me to look for farming land. So that’s why I want these Malawians to go back to their country,” chief Chanje said.

He said he wants to put Zambians on the land which Malawians are utilising for farming.

He said: “I was advised to write a letter, which I did and I wrote a letter to government through the office of our district commissioner. My request is that government should write them (Malawians) letters so that they vacate the area. We want government to handle this matter urgently because my people who came from Malawi are stranded.”

  1. Amalawi ali ku Zambiako ndi achewa ndiye mfumuyo ngati ndi ya achewa chikufunika ndi mafumu onse a achewa maiko onse akhalirane pansi.

  2. I guess this chief is insane why advocating xenophobia as if he doesnt know our roots, malawi and zambia we share the same history and we are more less like the same in different circumstances we are just brothers and sisters these silly demacations are there bcoz of whites but to say the truth we are one,we have lots of zambians here in malawi as neighbors but we live with them in hamony coz we know that our roots are one,all i see in this chief is greedy and poor dicission taking not making for that matter…!!

  3. understand the issue first. the chief simply wants Zambia to do as Malawi did. he is not saying all Malawians living in Zambia should vacate but rather only those found in their side after boarder re-definition just as Malawi had already done. his request is genuine.

  7. Zambia is a Country Surrounded by 8 Neighbours one of them is Malawi, and We Zambians Love Malawi more than any other country. We are like brothers and that chief is not even a factor in zambia.

  8. At first Zambians and Malawians lived side by side before the redifinition of the border.After the redifinition some Zambians located in Malawi and Malawians in Zambia.Malawi govt relocated the Zambians back to their country but Lusaka hasn’t done likewise.The chief is requesting his government to relocate Malawians back to their country so that the Zambians who were in diaspora should have some land to locate and do their farming activities.Werengani nkhani yonse kuti mokomente za nzeru.

  9. Let them start we shall follow suit.In malawi there is thousands of Zambians,Tanzanians(mataifa) millions of Mozambicans and Zimbabweans but we don’t mind for we are all human beings.

  27. It’s likely that our Chief was drank, forget about it, let’s carry on with our neighboring- ness.I envy Zimbabweans and South Africans, they even issue special permits just to allow them to stay freely. What more with our cousins? Panopa was masese diu-diu kumeko.

  35. Dont b suprise guys,we,re in last days so ppl wil b selfish.nation against nation,trible against trib lik here in malawi so there is noting huge do as wat thy said.malemba akwaniritsidwa.

  36. Sometimes I came to question the integrity of these Zambians. On different scenarios they have allowed Malawians to rule Zambia. You people just get this into your skull you can not be without us, you can not avoid us, am xorie but you just just have to live with it.

  37. malawi share border with almost three countries but malawian love zambians than any others, why? altleast 6 tribes which are in zambia are also in malawi that’s why everyday on malawi’s radios stations plays of 70% of zambians songs than our own. WE ALL NYASALAND. love u zambians

    • Mfumu yathu yapusa koma anthu athu analikatidwa kuchoka kumalawi, anthuni read the story well after redefinition zambians wwere chased, ny way ndife amodzi

  38. Chiefs must know that as they are practicing their role as village headmen, there is a King of kings, Jesus Christ, the ruler over the kings of the earth!

  39. Koma inu anthu a dziko la pasi kodi kodi kodi kodi munthu waku malawi adakulakwilani chani?tsiku ndilimodzi mudzagwadila malawi MULINGILU simunthu mind yr lips.

  40. What’s that now?Dr.KENN KAUNDA AMALAWIAN, FROM NKHATABAY DISTRICT,LUPIA BANDA FROM KASUNGU and many others,we’re one and where u from? Let Malawian to be as their brothers land like as many Zambias here

  41. And what will happen to those Zambians in Malawi? While we talk of regional integration a chief is advocating xenophobia. He needs to be trained on the basics of integration, peaceful coexistence and the African rennaisance. The chief has erred, and whoever gave him that job should straighten the path. A chief should be an agent of unity, a custodian of culture, with a clear knowledge of the oral history of his region, and an amicable vision for his subjects, not the opposite. Those Malawians in his jurisdiction are also his subjects and he should treat them equally unless they settled there illegaly, in which case he will have to prove why it was not possible to deport them at the onset while he had the authority to do so. PEOPLE SHOULD NOT FORGET THAT IT WAS A CHIEF WHO UTTERED XENOPHOBIC INSINUATIONS THAT CAUSED HORRIFIC ATTACKS ON FOREINERS IN SOUTH AFRICA ONLY LAST YEAR. Chiefs like these are a danger to society and a liability unto their governments.

  42. Let’s face reality here. In the first place Zambians were chased from Malawi. So Malawians in Zambia must be chased as well.It is clear that 78% of those commenting here Haven’t read the full story.

  43. There is even more for all of us! why should one man wants them all. (Greedy)!!! Maufumu otenga muli ana osapola pa mnchombo ndichochi, Timaufumu tapa WhatsApp ndi Fb…. zachibwana basi shupiti! !!!

  44. In the late 90s the capital city lilongwe was involved in series of armed robberies, many of the culprits were Zambian yet our malawian chiefs never said, the zambians should be reptriated

  45. CHANJE IS A LET DOWN,NDIFE AMODZI.VERY SOON CHIEFS FROM MALAWI,MOZAMBIQUE,SWAZILAND,LESOTHO,TANZANIA WL ATTEND NCWALA I HOPE THIS ISSUE WL BE BROT TO NKOSI YAMA NKOSI SO THAT IT IS HANDLED PROPERLY.WHY CANT HE CUM TO LSK AND CHASE RWANDESE,SOMALIANS AND PROSTITUTES FRM ACROSS?

  46. Hahaha I dont think this chief doesnt knw the history of Malawi and Zambia.Kenneth Kaunda was Malawian he fought independent now u want Malawian to go to Malawi. Which Malawi more over he is a chewa chief.

  47. That chief is ignorant..!!
    He does not know the importance of Cross^Boarder relations…cos even here in Malawi we host so many zambians who have even become Malawian citizens..
    Vuto la Umbuli…

  48. Iwe peter panyopako watikwana kwambili, kod siku ndi siku nkhan izikhala yako kumalawi??? Plz uganize bwino tikukupasa one week ya mphamvu uganize bho ukapanda kuganiza bwino uona zosatila zake.

  49. Borders are colonial prisons that aught to be disbanded.Black race,we are one pple.It is sad that this chief has turned into a politician.Only politicians can talk like that,not tha chief.Beware of colonial borders.

  50. the problem of malawians who come & look for peirce works,they leave their wives & children they come & marry our daughters & sisters latter they leave and dump them with children without father & care!

  51. Be careful with what you wish for. Malawians and Zambians living in border districts share family backgrounds i.e. the majority of them are related. Its just the borderline which separates them, otherwise,they are just one people. No wonder you find some self professed Zambians on the Malawi side and the same with Malawians living the opposite side.

    • he is not only that he is concened of what some malawians do when they come here in zambia,they mary our daughters which later they are dumped and break into our homes i wish u can see what they do whilest here in zambia,some are gud pipo!

    • What ever the case it is very difficult to control Zambia – Malawi Border. I come from the border town of Mchinji and orginary our people came from Zambia this alone brings free movement between the two borders. But those stealing should arrested. Lets unite as one people. We are just same people, same blood.

  52. yes we can belong to the same tribe but bear it that there is malawi n zambia as different nations, and we belong to different citizenships or nationalities
