Government wants to stop regulating traditional leaders over Chiefdom boundary wrangles.

Government says it is considering allowing chiefs to regulate themselves over Chiefdom boundary wrangles.
Chief and Traditional Affairs Deputy Minister, Robert Chiseke says government will only move into resolving issues of boundaries if traditional leaders have failed.
Mr. Chiseke was speaking when he officiated at the 11th Zengani traditional ceremony of the Ngoni/Tumbuka speaking people in Lundazi yesterday.
Mr Chiseke says that government is saddened by many wrangles and disputes obtaining in various chiefdoms across the country.
He has called on traditional leaders to always dialogue and find quicker solutions to differences so that the nation can move forward.
And Mr Chiseke says that government appreciates the role the Zengani traditional ceremony plays in unifying people from Zambia and Malawi.
And speaking earlier, Senior Chief Magodi of the Tumbuka/Ngoni speaking people indicated that this year’s celebration is based on unity in the chiefdom as it is a tool to national development.
The traditional leader however, complained of shortage of teachers in most schools, poor road network and food insecurity at household level among other challenges that the chiefdom is faced with.
The traditional leader also appealed to government to consider revamping the school feeding programme as it is used to encourage more pupils attend class.
