MMD warns of further confusion if the withdrawal of recognition for Everson Mumba as Chief Kalindawalo is not handled properly

The Movement for Multi-Party Democracy MMD has warned of further confusion if the withdrawal of recognition for Everson Mumba as Chief Kalindawalo of the Nsenga people is not handled properly.
MMD Provincial Chairperson Alexander Miti has also questioned government if wide consultation was made before President Michael Sata decided to withdraw the recognition.
Mr. Miti says that the confusion that has already ensued in the area is a sign that things could get out of control if not properly handled.
Unknown people are reported to have burnt houses at the former chief’s place while a billboard leading to the palace was vandalised.
Mr. Miti told Breeze News that it is strange that Traditional and Chiefs Affairs Minister, Professor, Nkhandu Luo was assigned to convene a meeting with traditional elders in Petauke when the decision was already taken by the head of state.
Professor Luo is today expected in Nyimba district to address the matter following a directive from President Sata.
And the MMD Provincial Chairperson has condemned people who vandalised the billboard and burnt houses.
Mr. Miti says that it is important for people in Petauke to realise that confusion will not assist to resolve the matter.
