Chief Lukwa summons MCP legislator over funeral commotion

46

Members of Senior Chief Lukwa’s family from Kasungu have summoned a Malawi Congress Party (MCP) legislator for causing commotion at the funeral of Lukwa’s mother over the weekend.

According to the family members, MCP Parliamentarian for Kasungu Central Amon Nkhata has a case to answer for giving his condolences despite a ban from the family.

The fracas took place during Lukwa’s mother funeral.

The family is reported to have banned politicians from speaking at the funeral except those from government.

The development witnessed district governor for Democratic Progressive Party in Kasungu Oswald Chirwa snatching a microphone from Nkhata when he tried to give his condolences.

The incident led to a commotion that saw Chief Lukwa’s mother being buried without a proper church service.
Now the tribunal court has summoned Nkhata for trying to speak despite the order from bereaved family.

The Chief said the incident caused health problems arguing that his Blood Pressure (BP) went up.

“Right now my BP is 160/99 but on that particular day it was 288/116 so am recovering now,” said the chief.

He further backed DPP’s Chirwa saying the family members were also about to snatch the microphone from Nkhata for not respecting the ban.

Meanwhile, Nkhata has disclosed his willingness to appear before the court arguing he sees nothing wrong to give condolences.

“I will go, whatever the case and whatever the situation,” said Nkhata.

  1. Wonders shall never end in this world indeed. Who was to blame here, the MP ? I just can not believe how our chiefs are slowly eroding their divinity and respect accorded to them by our culture and customs just because of ndalama.

  5. So what Luke Bisani wrote on 20 /04/2017 was true, that chiefs are used as a mouthpiece for the gorvernment. He wrote after bn said by Mkhutche.

  6. Chief Lukwa do you mean it was only opposition politicians that were baned from speaking at your mums funeral?
    Of all the chiefs in this country why is it only your chieftaincy that is associated with controversy?
    Please tread carefully on this issue chifukwa mawa muzaona ngati dziko lakudani baba.

  7. What is wrong with these chiefs nowadays? It’s too much. Traditionally, legislators have every right to give condolences when funeral is in their area of jurisdiction.

  10. Wakula ndi uchitsilu a Lukwa ndale sitichita ndi ufumu boma limabwera limapita samalani pakamwa mudzayaluka pa mawa inde ndalama ndizofunika koma samalani chikhalidwe

  11. Why was the ban to political parties only and yet allowing government to say something? Is Lukwa not in Amon Nkhata’s constituency? These are the old fashioned, biased and partisan chiefs Malawi does not need. Do not think that today’s government will be there forever.

  12. Ndimamva chisoni kwambiri ndi chief Lukwa ameneyu amawona ngati zinthu sizidzasintha eti? Ngati iyeyu Dpp ikumugwiritsa ntchito mawa adzamva kuwawa ena atamuswaya
