  1. I still wonder how these so called chiefs are still respected like this. These are the guys who sold our fore father’s as slaves. Police arrest as many as possible for arson and any other crime commited by the so called chiefs. These guys have been given powers for too long. Some are even selling plenty of land leaving out surbodinates on rocks. I wonder who these guys represent anyway.

  2. Chief Mwinuna is a big problem every where , he has brought another big problem to the people of kalunkumya chiefdom . he wants to put his bootlegger as a chief . He always wants to bulldoze things . Police try to be fair in coming up with fair verdict. Chief Lasa is a mother when she reaches that extent it means she was really provoked. Mwinuna is a dictator for real . He is a very rude leader. Who does not need any sympathy from a genuine resident. God is watching

  3. I imagine if today Zambia was divided along tribe borders and still divisions exist within the same tribe. …and even within clans. Oh what a shame.

  4. Chiefdoms should just be abolished. We can find other ways of keeping our cultures and traditions alive. What we are seeing now are chiefs fighting over land for personal reasons; most likely over mineral deposits in the disputed areas.
