MADA disassociates itself from Mweemba chiefdom wrangles

General News MADA disassociates itself from Mweemba chiefdom wrangles

The Mweemba Area Development Association (MADA) has distanced itself from its Chairperson’s allegations that government has ignored the succession disputes to Senior Chief Mweemba who died in 2007.

MADA Coordinator Vickson Syankondo told ZANIS in Sinazongwe that their Chairperson Edson Sikalango issued the statement in his personal capacity as the association did not sit to discuss such matters.

Mr Syankondo said MADA was a development association and as such was not mandated to involve itself in Chiefdom wrangles as such matters were a preserve of the royal family.

He said it was dangerous for the association to take sides in the chiefdom wrangles because it would fail to address developmental issues in Senior Chief Mweemba’s area.

Mr Syankondo said Mr Sikalongo should not make government think that the association has abandoned its development agenda to entangle itself in chiefdom disputes.

He said it was wrong for the Association to fight government over matters that were for the royal family to sort out.
Last week Mr Sikalongo said government should intervene in the Mweemba Chiefdom wrangles before people start attacking each other.

He said government was pretending as though there was nothing happening when two people have declared themselves as Acting Senior Chief Mweemba.

The two, Ephraim Siatambika and Lason Siasokwe are claiming to have been declared as acting Senior Chief Mweemba by their royal families and have since both mounted flags at their homes.
