Minister of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Lawrence Sichalwe (l) listens to Chief Lukama Mukiti Sekeli (r) during the installation celebrations at Kaungamashi Palace in Sioma District, Western Province

Minister of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs Lawrence Sichalwe is happy that Zambezi East Member of Parliament (MP) Brian Kambita attended the handover ceremony of a new palace to chief Mpidi of the Lunda people in the area.

Mr. Sichalwe said there was a perception that MPs do not interact with members of the community in constituencies they represent.

He was speaking when he called on Acting Zambezi District Commissioner Julius Tonga at his office yesterday.

Meanwhile, Mr. Sichalwe said he is aware of the disputes that chiefs in the district are embroiled in and that they are as a result of the amended constitution.

He however noted that some chiefs want to abrogate the constitution which he said is not right.

Mr. Sichalwe has since appealed to the area MPs to help his ministry by educating the traditional leaders to understand the constitution in order to uphold peace and unity.

And speaking at the same occasion, Acting Zambezi District Commissioner Julius Tonga said the visit of Mr. Sichalwe to the district will make people believe that government is fulfilling its promises.
