Katuta Chiefdom installs new chief

Rural News Katuta Chiefdom installs new chief

Chief-elect, Brian Mwewa has been installed as Chief Katuta-Kapemba of the Chishinga people in Mwense District, Luapula Province.

The installation comes after over 10 years of the chieftainship remaining vacant following succession disputes that engulfed the chiefdom.

ZANIS reports that speaking when he witnessed the installation ceremony, Luapula Province Permanent Secretary Charles Mushota bemoaned the challenges government faces in implementing developmental programs in the absence of a chief.

“The impact of being without a Chief has been felt by the people of Katuta Kampemba Chiefdom and Government in particular, which relies on the Tradition Leadership in the implementation of various development projects in the Chiefdoms,” Mushota observed.

Engineer Mushota revealed that government is collaborating well with tradition leaders in the District as it recognises that Chiefs are major stakeholders in development.

He cited the land given for the construction of a bridge at Chalwe under the Mwenda Kasome road project by chief Mulundu as one of the collaboration that government has had with the chief that will impact positively to the lives of the people of Mwense.

Earlier Chief Mulundu of the Chishinga people of Mwense District called on the subjects to Chief Katuta Kampemba to support the new Chief.

Meanwhile, standing in for Mwense District Commissioner, Sabeta Mwansa thanked the people of Katuta Kampemba for being peaceful during the period the Chiefdom was experiencing succession wrangles.

“This ceremony cannot go without appreciating you the people of Katuta Kapemba for remaining peaceful during the time there where misunderstandings in the chiefdom, please continue to remain peaceful,” Mr Mwansa said.

The installation follows the death of Chief then Chief Katuta Kapemba Robert Kapansa who died on December 25, 2010.

The installation ceremony was attended by Chief Kashiba, Chief Munkanta, sub chief Kabila and sub chief Kabanda, Senior Government Officials were also in attendance.

  1. please address the problem of pedophillia in the country. I would love to be the first to expose one wicked Zambian man in Lusaka who has sexually abused 100’s of minors. He is married and has two grown up coloured daughters the 3rd child died some years back. The old man has defiled most of the young girls that has crossed his path, from kids that sell sweet potatos, grilled maize cobs, roasted groundnuts, mushrooms along Zambian major highways to small school girls in the compounds, even his minor female cousins, older cousins daughters, their freinds and friends friends, his late brothers and sisters grandchildren, male cousins wives , married and single women and street workers. If a female relative visits the family he wakes up at night when everyone is…

  2. sleeping and crawls on his k n e e s to the b e d r o o m where a female relative is sleeping alone to go and s e x u a l l y abuse her, while his w i f e is asleep in another b e d r o o m.

  3. Ten years of succession wrangles is a long period. Now that a new Chief has been installed, its a lesson to other chiefdoms to ensure that those who are line for succession are identified earlier than wait at the last moment. Look at the British Monarch everything is well set in advance. For us its because of being self centered and selfish to the extent of the incumbent ruling to the exclusion of other members of the royal family.

    This sounds like the wife to the paedo. Just come out and report him to the police. You seem to have all the data, what are you waiting for?

  6. Why do we call them chiefs? Chief is the white man’s derogatory title for our leaders. We never called them chiefs until the white man arrived.
