Chief Lundu is drunk in political money

151

If ever there is a God, we sincerely pray, please, do away with our chiefs. We can do without them. They are proudly called the custodians of culture. That is the description that has resonated well with traditionalists, those people who are often afraid of modernity and goes back to culture as reference point of maintaining the status quo.

Chief Lundu’s actions have sparkled debate.

Which culture do they keep after all? Malawi has inevitably been part of significant global changes. No matter how much guard we have had throughout the years, as they say, change still happens. And then, aside that, we have the political side of our chiefs.

Building their influence from a traditional establishment that dates back to pre-colonial era, chiefs have always been victims of powers that be. At one time, the Swahili Arab slave traders used them to get slaves from the interior of Central Africa to the East African market. Christian missionaries went through chiefs and subsequently the colonial administrators. During Kamuzu Banda era, chiefs still retained power, to the extent of judging on treason cases. The same continued with the following democratic governments.

Bushiri, Lundu fight

  1. The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) is now in power. Just like other previous governments, the party has chosen to use chiefs for its political aims. With the belief that people listen to their chiefs, politicians have targeted chiefs as a way of reaching to people, especially with a message that is against their political opponents, as noted from recent trends.

On Saturday in Nchalo, Chikwawa, Paramount Chief Lundu of the Mang’anja people in the Lower Shire was on a political outing. In one of his traditional communiques, the chief lashed out against the flamboyant South African based Malawian Prophet Shepherd Bushiri of the Enlightened Christian Gathering (ECG). He told the people that the man of God is involved in Satanism and harbors political ambitions.

From a philosophical point of view, there is no being called Satan, and Satanism is nothing but a system of belief that mushrooms from the human mind’s controversy of good and evil. And about political ambitions; since when has it become a crime for a citizen to have political ambitions?

Before going into the nitty-gritties, Bushiri;s public relations team was in on time to clear the mist with a press release. In one of the statements Bushiri’s Public Relations Officer, Ephraim Nyondo, writes, “Malawi remains a Republic, not a Kingdom. Our churches will, legally, continue to operate anywhere in Malawi.”

If one looks at Chief Lundu’s recent political rants, it is easy to note the fact that he is one of the ruling party’s operatives. To share the larger picture, for a time, the Prophet has been having a cat and rat relationship with government. His Maize donations sparked subordination reactions from government with other alleging that he is using his vast wealth to vie for a political position in 2019.

Understanding this background, Chief Lundu’s sentiments came from nowhere else. What he talked about Prophet Bushiri lacks substance and not a grain of truth to convince even those who look at the Prophet with suspicion. The ruling party continues to use its old and unfruitful tactics of using errand boys to do its dirty jobs.

So unfortunate that the Chief has chosen to be used by the ruling party for its ends. He has other important tasks to do for his people and means of survival that can elude the snares of DPP. But he has chosen to partake in the political liquor of a party that now and then continues to tell the nation that political insecurity is its number one challenge.

Chief Lundu, the people clapped hands and women ululated for you as you delivered the message your masters sent through you. Some believed you. But as for me, and those of like mind, we choose to clearly tell you that we are old enough to understand the constitution of Malawi, as said by Prophet Bushiri team. As you call others Satanists, have time to also look at yourself. How can a man who is paid to dent other people’s image claim not to be from Satan? We know, you are drunk in political money, and we are not ready to listen to you.

  1. inu nonse munapanga chisankho chakuti ndalama ndi satana ndinu odala chifukwa ameneyi mukuti prophet azakukanilani pa tsiku lachiweluzo akuti ine ndimapanga GENI nzanu akupanga business inu nkumati prophet koma poti MULUNGU wathu ngwachifundo akupaseni njira zina zopezela ndalama osati kudzela kwa ameneyi mumucha prophet wanu sankhani YESU nde prophet wamoyo zinazi ndi mbola.

  2. Well, my part to this story is:
    • The person called Wonderful Mkhutche is a person without the respect of parents, elderly and leadership. An atheist with no respect for leadership. Someone born in the street and even the ones who got him from the street did not teach him some very little beginnings of life.
    • If ever you are a writer, and call yourself a writer, then go back to school to learn journalism. Please note that we all have the right to express own opinion. Just as you have expressed your atheist opinion so does Chief Lundu. And so does Bushiri when he is giving an opion about what he believes in. If you disagree with any person’s opinion just indicate respectfully without insulting the one you differ your opinion with. Please learn to respect yourself if you do not have parents to respect.
    • On culture – which society does not have a culture? Which global village are you talking about that does not have a culture? Yes in your case I know you do not have a culture because you were born in the street. You have no father nor mother to have taught you manners which are part of what we call culture.
    • Which constitution of Malawi are you talking about that does not recognise God, chiefs, and all forms of leadership?
    • Whether you have been paid by Bushiri, your party or whosoever, this write up lacks the description who you are said to be “About the writer: Wonderful Mkhutche is a professional speech writer, a political scientist and a manuscript editor and developer”. Where is your professionalism here? Your scientism?
    • All ideologies have support on earth. Be it yourself alone. And so just as you write and put up your opinion, so does Chief Lundu, Bushiri, DPP members and supporters and any other political party supporter. DPP has supporters just as any other party. The one who wins is the one who has majority support. Be it they are wrong or right in their choice. Be it they are stupid or sober. If you have lost, wait for your time when enough people will develop trust to vote for you. There is no reason to insult those who have won because you have lost. Please be aware that the ideology about God, a father, a chief, a president and so on so forth will remain for quite some time to come. You will die and leave these still there. Your professional writings will die with you and never be remembered. You will have changed nothing on earth. Born in the street, leave in the street, write in the street and die in the street.
    • Well, we are aware of some writers’ sponsors, but you have the right also to choose your paymaster.
    • Please go back to learning!

  3. Reality iz alwayz painful dere4 nodng wromg wth #chief_lundu n on top of dat scriptures crearly sayz dat in last dayz n end time #false prophets wil rise over de #nationz

  4. Mmmm man jack I see you are also amad person coz you don’t now wat are u saying don’t judge anyone coz you are abig chiief of fools in your area inclueding your foolish chief.

  5. Hahahahaa King LUNDU why you’re so nagative, inspite of sitting on your throne enjoying the meat of Goat and Pig which your people brought to you, insteady of interfering in political..pangani zaufumu man. Ichi chakoma ichi chakoma Pusi anagwa chagada.muchenjele

  6. hope the author of this story is being misguided. Had it been the DPP as a party have those opinions, they could have even propagated the same to other cheifs so that all the cheifs could speak in one voice. In government they have what they call Resource Mapping tool, which they try to share resources sourced outside of the national bugdet (from donors or well wishers) so you can just wake up today and start distributing things to the public. there are channels that need to be followed. Satanism is not just a system of belief, unless if you are an atheist.

  7. ine koma chomwe ndiziwa ndi choti Mulungu sanalengepo Ndalama, Galimoto, Ndege, ndizonse muziwazo zomwe anapanga munthu nde miracle ya ndalama imachoka kuti, miracle ya ntchito, ya galimoto, Yesu naye anaikana ndalama kuti it belongs to ceaser/kayesara ndipo sanaigwirisepo ntchito. komaso Yesu atayesedwa ndi Satan mu Chipululu kuti asanduse mwara ndikukhala mkate iye anati choka satan kwalembedwa kuti usamuyese mulungu wako, nde ma prophet amasiku ano akuyesa mulungu kwambiri zomwe ndizoopya all these miracles that the perfom is based pa zinthu zomwe anapanga ndimunthu and not Mulungu thats why its all about money, cars, mansions, business, and so on.God never created these things and amene anatseka Zonse amene tinganene kuti anali Prophet womaliza komanso mpulumusi anali Jesus Christ ndiyemwe tikuyembekezeranso ena onsewo kaya, Bible Silinatiuzepo koma Linangotiuza za Fake prophets amene azaitanire mu zina lake ndipo linati tisazapiteko.

  13. To Hell Wth Ur Bushiri,all He Knows Is Miracle Ths,miracle That! John Was Th Great Prophet,even Th Bible Proves That,,but Did He Perform Any Miracles??

  14. To Hell Wth Ur Bushiri,all He Knows Is Miracle Ths,miracle That! John Was Th Great Prophet,even Th Bible Proves That,,but Did He Perform Any Miracles??

  15. Bwana Kadamao you think the chief is saying the truth, not because he doesn’t know the difference between politics and saving God? He is denying God’s people freedom of worship. I hope he will reverse his idea when he is in good sense. Shalom.

  16. There are some chiefs who have been used by the regimes since time immemorial. The change of regimes makes some chiefs’ incapable on their duties. That’s why you can see Inkosi ya makisi Mberwa V, Themba Chikulamayembe, T/A Fukamapiri..etc not meddling in politics. They don’t want to lose their good reputation. In fact they are prudent. But Kaomba is gone for being used by UDF. Lundu had a point but it was done on a political rally. The ECG is behaving like a political party in opposition. That is bringing fear among people. But because people can’t notice that, all they look for is money, they have since stopped following what the scripture says. Many people are leaving their churches to join ECG with an intention of receiving money from Major 1. Some are withdrawing after realising that time is running out the man of God isn’t giving them money. But Lundu should know that Major1 fought 314 battles and Won all of them.

  17. Guys mutseguke maso ine chiyambireni kumva za Bushiri palibe chanzeru chomwe ndimapeza ndipo sindinamveke akulalika za ufumu wakumwamba kapena kwawuza anthu za zowopswa zilimkudza ayi koma za chuma, banja etc sindikuweruza koma kunena zowona

    Mukadzaona mtsogoleri wa mau amulungu akudanana ndi chidzudzulo kapena kunenedwa ndi anthu achikunja dziwani kuti ameneyo ndi False prophet

  28. Wamkulu was amanganja but he is no nonses chief.But here I think he has been given the mandate by our stupit Politicians there are afraid of bushiri to rule this country

  29. The chief might be wrong. However Bushiri might NOT be right either. Why is he always in contradiction with the scripture? Matthew 6:1-4 says not to practice any charity work like hypocrites do in the synagogues. It says the left hand (meaning you and me) MUST NOT KNOW what the right hand (meaning Bushiri) is doing. Unless bushiri is doing that for a purpose kuti muzimutama and that is exactly what you are doing. Nde Mulungu akupitiliza kunena kuti anthu otere ALIBE ChOLOWA Mu Ufumu waku mwamba. Nde mukamati Bushiri this, Bushiri that…you will have the surprise of your after life Bushiri yo atatsala. Osamasilira za Bushiri, akusocheretsani. There is no Salvation in Bushiri. He worship money contradicting what Jesus did when He rebuked Satan on the third temptation (Matthew 4.8-11). More over he comes in contradiction with God as God said “you have received freely and freely you SHALL GIVE (Matthew 10:8). Bushiri sells so called 50 mls bottled miracle water for K14,000. An encounter with the so called man of god cost 7,000 Rands (K371,000). Bushiri is running a Church Business and again in contradiction with God as Jesus kicked all those people who were doing business in the synagogues (Matthew 21:12) remember? Jesus is the way to Salvation (John 14:6). Izi za Bushirizi muchedwa nazo as palibemo moyo pa kutsilira chuma chimene Bushiri ali nacho (he has received his reward in full on earth atero Yehova).
    Ali ndi makutu amve!

    • Wakumva wamva Leroi asiye poti ndimakonda makonda koma chilungamo ndichimene wanena apachi. Ndiri ndi Audio ya mayi wina anamutumizika bushiri yo anamuwuza zonse wanena apazi mosamunyengekera kuti nayeso kusamva kukhale kwake.

    • Amen. JESUS said, no slave can have two masters, chifukwa kutelo utha kumkondweretsa mmodzi ndi ku kukhumudwisa winayo. We can not minister God and money at the same time. Kkkkkk koma poti ndi papa awo, ati major one ndinkona akukwiya. Major one? how many major ones do we have except God? bushiri azitenge bwino uyu

    • Anthu ambiri samawelenga Bible that’s why amangotsatira zilizonse ,chiphunzitso chanji chongomakamba za ulemelero wa dziko lapansi basi,osaphunzitsa anthu kuti akapulumuka bwanji pa tsiku lachiweluzo,still people r following that nonsense teaching, wakula ndiumphawi ndiye anthu timathamangira komwe anthu akulalikira za chuma osati za chipulumutso

  30. Idiots!! So you hv sold ur freedom of speech? Birth right of all remember? wat man of god are you referring to? Bulshirit? kkkkkkk..evil doers,enjoy your money whilst it lasts

  31. What makes Lundu to thisnk that whatever he says is right? He who advises everybody needs advice himself and I strongly think he does. He usually waffles things not befioting a repsected malawian Chief.

  32. Kkkkkkkkk ooooo yah!!!! mwatelo okay.Ife kunja kukacha timangoyang’ana kumwamba poziwa kuti ndi kumene kumazela madaliso athu ziziuzulanani choncho

  33. mmmmm olemekezeka alundu alakwa kwambiri …sangadzudzule munthu wa mulungu pa sonkhano wa Ndale.. komaso Iwo adziwe Malawi si kingdom but republic… iwo alibe mphamvu zoletsa mpingo kupita kudera lao unless malamulo atasinthidwa ndi Parliament

  34. Mfumu yanena chilungamo ndipo mutati mufufuze mupeza kuti grace anali ochokera kudera lake mwinanso kuoyandikana choncho momwe zinamvekera ngakhalenso enafe zinatikhumudwitsa. Choncho mfumu idakali yowawidwa mumtima ndiye sikufunanso kumva zasatana ameneyo mudera lake.

  35. Mukudana nchilungamo chifukwa Bushiri ndi wa ndlama palibe chomwe mungaletse mpaka pano simumakhulupilira kuti ndi ma false prophet? mudakali mtulo prophet wenweni akamadzabwera muli kuchionongeko kale, prophet adzabwera opanda kalikonse ovala nkhwaila ndipo mudzamnyodza chifukwa azakhala osauka ndipo mudzamngenda kuti akunena bodza

  36. is wat Lundu said about this Church new to u Mr Mkhutche?.U mean all Zambian Authorities were drunk?…i c u r the one drunk n need some help..

  37. Jealousy is what makes Malawi going nowhere ,just sinking.What’s wrong?why attacking a person like Bushiri who feed the hungry and helping the needy children with education in Malawi.What one thing Lundu ever done to the people than kulowetsa dzinamwali?The entire crew fighting with Bushiri must go to hell and rot there .

    • hehehehe what if Bushiri goes to hell too on the last day? Have you ever thought of that? Why is he always against what the scripture says. Matthew 6:1-4 says not to practice any charity work like hypocrites do in the synagogues. It says the left hand (meaning you and me) MUST NOT KNOW what the right hand (meaning Bushiri) is doing. Unless bushiri is doing that for a purpose kuti muzimutama and that is exactly what you are doing. Nde Mulungu akupitiliza kunena kuti anthu otere ALIBE ChOLOWA Mu Ufumu waku mwamba.

    • Nanthambwe. You need to train yourself to be comfortable with silence, particularly when dealing with things of religion. No wonder you have a fake facebook page. A man in hiding..

    • Fake account? A man in hiding? Chinthunzi changacho sukuchiona? Kapena ukuyuza “mose walero” Za zi. Haters of the truth. I will keep on rebuking false messiah’s like the crooked prophet of earthly god of mammon, and will enligten about the truth and encourage those who are right according to 2 Timothy 4:2 “Preach the word of God. Be prepared, whether the time is favorable or not. Patiently correct, rebuke, and encourage your people with good teaching.”

  38. ambilife tikanakhala mu position iyiyi ya Lunduyi, tikanachita sem sem, even kutituma kukagenda shoprite, we cud av gone. just my line of thinking. mone mone mone

    • We shall not cow down to god worshiping like yourself. Lundu’s waffles are dangerous and devisive for a respected Chief of his kind. Why cant you pple train him good public speaking?
