Funds set aside for creating boundaries among chiefdoms

Rural News Funds set aside for creating boundaries among chiefdoms

Government has set aside half a million kwacha for creation of geographical boundaries among chiefdoms.

Chiefs and traditional affairs Minister Lawrence Sichalwe said government has done this as it is deeply concerned with the continued boundary disputes among traditional leaders in the country arising from the lack of feasible boundaries.Mr. Sichalwe said his ministry will work in collaboration with the office of the surveyor general to establish geographical boundaries among chiefdoms.

And the Chiefs and traditional affairs Minister said it is unfortunate that some chiefs in Southern province are being politically motivated to cancel the commemoration of traditional ceremonies in their respective chiefdoms.

Mr. Sichalwe said traditional ceremonies are not state functions but cultural associations which traditional leaders have the preserve to decide whether to hold or not.Speaking in Monze, the minister said it will be unfortunate if political motives lead to the cancellation of traditional ceremonies which are key in unifying people.

He however assured traditional leaders in Southern province of Government’s continued support to traditional ceremonies through the grant that is specifically provided for recognized traditional ceremonies countrywide.

Mr. Sichalwe was in Southern province to inspect the construction of chief Chona’s palace in Monze district.
