Chief Chanje of the Chewa speaking people in Chipata has denied chasing Nsenga speaking people from his area and grabbing their land.
And the traditional leader has challenged Caritas Chipata to visit his area and verify reports that Nyau dancers are terrorising innocent people over land.
Speaking to Breeze News on Wednesday morning, Chief Chanje says that he has accommodated people of different tribes in his chiefdom because they are all Zambians.
A family which owns Kasinga Farm has complained that they have been chased from the area because they are Nsengas and that their farm has been demarcated and given to Chewas.
But Chief Chanje says that the matter being referred to is a land wrangle, which has nothing to do with tribalism.
Meanwhile Chief Chanje says that Caritas Chipata is after destroying his name because Nyau dancers are not harassing anyone in his area.
The traditional leader has challenged the Catholic run organisation to visit his area and investigate the matter, which he says has no basis.
