Senior Chieftainess Nkomesha calls for peaceful campaigns

Rural News Senior Chieftainess Nkomesha calls for peaceful campaigns

Senior Chieftainess Nkomesha Mukamambo II of the Soli-speaking people of Chongwe district has called her subjects to be peaceful during this year’s election period.

Senior Chieftainess Nkomesha said it was important that her subjects should ensure that treat each other cordially as they campaign for their preferred political candidates.

“ It is important for her subjects to remain united despite belonging to different political parties, “ she said.

The traditional leader said this when she addressed mourners during the burial of the late Christopher Chitambala who once served as her retainer.

She also advised farmers in Chongwe not sell their maize to briefcase buyers who are offering low prices saying they should wait and sell their produce at a fair price once it is harvested.

The traditional leader explained that selling maize at a low price will disadvantage farmers who spend a lot of money and time to plant the crop.

“After all the hard work, material and financial resources that you put in to grow your maize, I don’t expect you to sell your maize to some individuals at low prices.

“ I acknowledge that people have financial challenges but it should not push anyone to do such a thing. Sell your maize at a reasonable price which will enable you to feed your families,” said the traditional leader.

She encouraged the farmers to sell their maize to the Food Reserve Agency (FRA) to make reasonable profits from their produce.

Meanwhile, Chongwe District Commissioner Robster Mwanza has noted that there are some individuals who are approaching farmers in areas such as Manyika, Mwanshelela and Chipanuka offering to buy maize at K50 per 50 Kilogram bag.

Mr. Mwanza said farmers should refuse to sell maize to such individuals because they do not mean well.


  1. If the upnd thugs behave themselves this year, then we will have peaceful elections. If they don’t then we are prepared as government to give the police all resources needed to instill discipline in them. Some people only learn through beating and kicks.

    Also prayers for hh who is in a coma in critical condition . Get well soon.

  2. How I wish we had many of traditional leaders advising their subjects to be peaceful and treat each other with respect. However the politicians have no rules of engagement as they have their own way of getting things around. The aspiring candidates are all over the constituencies doing all sorts of things, making donations and promising unsuspecting voters the impossible things to deliver. If the tongue had means these men and women would have moved Mt. Kilimanjaro from East Africa to Zambia to demonstrate howbthey will develop the country for all to see to clear their doubts.

  3. Let’s not mock sickness as tomorrow it can
    Afflict us.Good message from chieftainess.
    You deserve to carry on.

  4. KZ the only party getting violence into the elections is your corrupt PF. Who shot and killed two innocent citizens two months ago? PF governed police officers. Who prepared 20,000 police officers for the elections? The corrupt PF government. Which criminal cadres went into a ministry last week? Belonging to PF. So it is YOU, and your party colleagues who are going to make these elections violent. NOBODY ELSE.

  5. Chieftainess Nkomesha means well and looks after the Chongwe people for many years. It is a pity that she is living in medieval times – she halts progress for a long time. Chongwe must be the only district without a proper supermarket, without any manufacturing plants etc. because she doesn’t see that enterprises like that attract more business for her people. The only businesses coming in are the Chinese (there must be at least six Chinese shops in Chongwe, all selling the same Made in China garbage) because they BRIBED themselves into the town. Pity. Chongwe could have grown exponentially – but it is at the last place in economic ranking.

  6. I don’t drink coffee with low lives. However, tarino can serve me the coffee. after all that is what he probably does there abroad- serving whlte people as a waiter.

  7. That Paramount Chief in the East can learn a lot from this respected Senior Chieftainess Nkomesha Mukamambo II instead of him chasing underage girls and drinking Powers whiskey everyday oh not forgetting bootlicking Lazy Lungu for some copper coins.

  8. You should try your BEST not to take ANYTHING trolls say seriously. No matter how POORLY they behave, REMEMBER these people spend countless UNPRODUCTIVE hours trying to make people mad. They’re NOT worth your TIME of the DAY.
