Sata plans to impose Luo, a fellow Bisa as Chitimukulu

Ailing dictator Michael Sata plans and is heavily fighting to impose a fellow Bisa as Chief Chitimukulu, the paramount Chief of the Bemba people.

Meanwhile, the Bemba Royal Establishment has rejected  Sata’s decision to degazette Henry Sosala Senior Chief Mwamba of the Bemba-speaking people of Kasama.

Last Thursday, President Sata withdrew recognition of Henry Kanyanta Sosala as senior chief Mwamba of the Bemba-speaking people of Kasama.
But radio Mano in Kasama reports that Bashilubemba (Bemba Chiefs)  had a meeting over the matter on Friday where they rejected Sata’s decision, calling it government interference in traditional affairs.

The Watchdog has been informed that the fight is not just about chief Mwamba but Bemba chiefs have realised that Sata wants to impose a fellow Bisa as Chitimukulu.

Sources in the Bemba Royal Establishment have told the Watchdog that Bembas are due to chose the new Chitimukulu next month since the passing of the last Chiti last year.

‘But Sata wants to impose Bob Luo, Nkandu Luo’s brother who is currently chief Chibesakunda of the Bisa people’, a source explained.

From the time Chitimukulu died, Sata has been busy meddling in the traditional activities. Before the traditional leaders announced the death of theire King as per custom, Sata was writing letters of condolences to the Royal Establishemnt.
