M’mbelwa denies calls to split Mzimba

102

The Mzimba paramount chief, Inkosi Yamakosi M’mbelwa the fifth has vehemently denied calls to divide the district into four other districts.

The plans to have the district divided were introduced some time ago but they were suppressed.

Now the calls have resurfaced and were discussed at a district’s council meeting which ended last Thursday, May 12.

M'mbelwa

M’mbelwa says no to Mzimba splitting calls.

According to one of the councillors who is pushing for the division of the district, Fumu Mdolo for Kasitu east ward, dividing the Mzimba would help the district to develop.

Councillor Mdolo said it is very worrisome that the district still remains poor compared to other districts in the country, arguing that the reason behind this is that it is too large hence there is lack of social amenities.

“The idea to split Mzimba is not intended to undermine the authority of our chiefs but we feel that it will increase allocation of resources as each district will have its own recurrent budget allocation as well as development budget allocation,” said Mdolo.

However, Inkosi M’belwa V said he is against the issue to divide Mzimba saying the district doesn’t belong to chiefs and councillors and added that other parties need to be consulted on the issue.

He said the councillors need to follow proper procedure on the matter.

“I am caught in between. This issue of dividing Mzimba started way back. However, the issue need to be discussed with sober minds by leaving emotions aside. We as chief we have welcomed your idea but we feel you have skipped some important procedures which you need to follow.

“The issue of dividing Mzimba need to be discussed at length by consulting all the necessary stakeholders because it is not only councillors and chiefs who make up Mzimba,” said M’mbelwa.

Legislator for Mzimba south, Makwenda Chunga accused the councillors of pocketing money from some organisations to bring up the issue.

(2) Ukulu waboma lamzimba wapangiska kuti sono kuweukavu wukulu lekani pa Map mzimba walimgulu lakutumizgawanthu ku jon kusowa chakuchita ku mzimba am’mbelwa soni zikumukolani yayi?Kwene mafumu mkuwa vwalika kulongola kuti wanthu mbanandi nawowawe nachiselo.Imwemulikutemwa tulawakusonkha mafumukumuzi kwene kulatukufu mmanyengekuti nkhuwanthu wakusuzikawanji mbachekulu wakudandawula pakupereka.Sono ku Mzimba uko umbuli ndiwo ngukulu chomene tichali kulila.

  2. Mwafuma kuno muli kumwela uko sono ndipo mwamanya kuti mzimba…heeee …development mwayimanya sono ? Kumaso nga development yinu iyo,Mzimba ngwa chifumu uyo vikumunyanyiska wayeye muzi wake wakakhale kunyake apart from Mzimba, isaaaaaa

  3. Ufumu a Mmbelwa ngwau nadi kweni chigawa ntchatose wene Mzimba•Kugawa ninthowa yekha yakwenelela kuti Mzimba wapange vyakwenelela kumaso gha wanthu•Tiyeni tiusenge mwakwenda nanyengo Obaba!Mkanenge kugawa mpaka paulina!

  4. Mzimba needs to be divided, the chief shall be the king of the ngoni here in the north no matter if the district is divided just like Inkosi Gomani who leads the ngonis of Ntcheu, Dedza, Mchinji, Mwanza, Balaka and Thyolo(Bvumbwe)

  5. Am not a gree with m’mbwelwa, he must think twice am also from mzimba but the distance between him and me it’s like from Lilongwe to mchinji, mzimba must be divided it’s too big

  6. Listen Inkosi ya makosi Mmbelwa, you will still be Inkosi ya makosi, your chiefdom will now comprise of those split districts. You’ll have the core input on deciding the headquarters of your chiefdom. What exactly is your problem with the sweet idea of the split. Can’t you see that the majority want it. May you stop being a disappointment to the people of Mzimba

  7. This issue has been toxic for a while,taking in to consideration all issues on the table I personally think the benefits of dividing this Mzimba out weighs the other.what we see here is the benefing of one family or a group of pple than the majority .Think out of the the box pple.

  8. I consider him as stupid too. Just look at Mzimba partially. Its sad and parthetic when you take a good look at it interms of development so why that selfish is denying the allegation? Rubish

  9. I thought the money for development is the same money being wasted now,how will dividing the district bring about the change? If the government will afford to develop those small district what differences does it make in developing Mzimba as a whole? I now think the educated are more ignorant than our chief and the government doesn’t know where it’s going.

  10. Mbelwa is just being greedy and clearly I don’t see the the significance of having a useless chief in a constitution democracy. Let’s divide this district and let’s divide the constituencies to a manageable sizes and it’s the for the benefits of the people of mzimba district.

  11. Go and see how Balaka and Phalombe districts are developing after they accepted to be detached from their mother district. Continue your cunningness and you keep to be poor and less developed North. This is not politics but about development.

  12. M mberwa wachita makola kukana , chitukuko chawo nchachi chikhale , we don’t care with ur development, nkhalango ya Mzimba timadyetse Ng’ombe zanthu

  13. mr patrick werani, ndibwino kupempha ku boma kuti either aonjezere ma secondary school or apange upgrade ma community Day Secondary school (CDSS) CHIFUKWA EVE MZIMBA ATAGAWIDWA LERO SIKUTI MA SECONDARY SCHOOL ANGAMANGIDWE in 5 years muma boma amene atsegulidwe kumene, komanso munthu amasankhidwa ndi momwe wakhozera.

  14. Inkosi siyidabvomereze kapena kulola kuti Mzimba igawidwe. Yanena kuti authority needs to consult widely. Osangoti councillors na M.P basi tiyeni tigawe Mzimba. Ndite enanu mukukimetha monyoza Inkosi, simunabvetsetse.

  15. ngati akukanika kutukuka ma boma alipo kalewa nde linalo lidzatukuka?Neno ndi Likoma umphawi uli thooo nde basi mkakhutakhuta zinsima uko muli tiyeni tikagawe Mzimba?

  16. The Chief Has Made A Wise Decision.Leave Our District Alone!Don’t You Have Other Important Things To Do?If You Want Split Your District Not Ours.Mind Your Business(manya Twako/dziwa Zako)PERIOD!

  17. I sometimes wonder why some people tend to speak out of there nonsense.It is sometimes very sigificant to remain silent on an issue with which you are not concerned.What I believe is that speaking without meaning is like shooting without aim.so,before we make a commennt on an issue,be sure of both an issue and what you are saying either in oral or writing.i have said so because some people have blindly made there comments, criticising M’mbelwa’s decision not to split his land.To my side i feel like should remain as it is.I support my “IGWE” Mmbelwa the fifth.BA EEE THEEE

  20. In my opinion these pipo have got the hidden agenda, akufuna akagawa ,kumalo komwe anali ndimaganizo oti,akayambitse migodi, mbwelwa asazakhalenso ndi mphavu kulankhulako, angofuna amuononge mzimba ngatu momwe anachitila ku neno, pano olo titati chitukuko ku neno kulichani chooneka mumaso, ndipo mbwelwa osalola anthu adyera wa aononge mzimba. Akuwapweteketsa mutu ndima minerals anayeza underground

  25. He’s just too greedy bus all what he thinks a that he won’t have a privilege of getting all what he used to get. We got young people who just finished schools that can’t get jobs. If you sprit Mzimba into 3 or 4 u open and create jobs for these young people. What kind of brainless chief are you, wake up maan

  27. Mbelwa is not greedy, why to divide the district? what will be the benefet? how much money the nation is going to loose after this project (coming up with a new map)? if we truly love our country there is no need of new demacations

  28. The division or splitting the district will change nothing, go to Neno today it does not look like a district, someone somewhere has got the hidden agenda

  29. Dividing the district will bring development? As easy as that? You mean having a modern hospital in Luwerezi awaits your division? A tarmac road from Jenda through Embangweni/Edingeni to Kafukule needs a geographical division? A stadium in Mzuzu requires your political demarcations? Really?
