Inkosi M’mbelwa tells Livingstonia Synod to leave Mzimba

Inkosi ya Makosi Mbelwa

Inkosi ya Makosi M’mbelwa has told the CCAP Livingstonia Synod to accept polygamy and beer or leave the district.

The chief attacked the church on Tuesday during the installation of Inkosi Mzukuzuku at Ephangweni headquarter in Mzimba.

Inkosi ya Makosi M’mbelwa : If they cannot afford to accommodate us let them move from the area

He said the church forces people to abandon their culture by barring them from drinking beer and marrying two wives yet the church already found the people doing these things.

“I, M’mbelwa today I am telling them that if they cannot afford to accommodate us let them move from the area since there are a lot of churches out there and we are free to join them according to our choice, lucky enough there is one God,” said Inkosi M’mbelwa.

He also condemned the church for its habit of refusing to conduct funeral ceremonies of polygamists.

“Today they are here to bless our chief, but once the same chief dies, the same CCAP says no we cannot come since the chief was a drunkard, the chief married two wives,” said M’mbelwa.

After M’mbelwa’s remarks, CCAP Livingstonia Synod pastors left the venue before end of the function.

Before M’mbelwa spoke, General Secretary of the CCAP Livingstonia Synod Levi Nyondo told the chief not to stop going to church and to always praise God.



  1. I think M’mbelwa has forgoten that we are in a democracy country now. He can’t say CCAP should quit Mzimba No! Whoever doesn’nt want to belong to the church is free to quit and not falsing people like he is doing. Mzimba district is not only for Ngoni’s as stated. Tumbukas are also in this District and is not their culture to drink beer and marrying so many wives as stated. I feel sorry for the young ones because it looks like the old people are the wise ones to be installed in big positions now. Shame!!!!!!

  2. Inkosi M’mbwelwa has a point coz CCAP church they always abandon the funeral of other church members bcoz they had two wife’s or they’re drunkard,but they always take part in their weddings, correct funds,then whe
    n the person dies they refuse to take part
