Paramount Chief Gawa Undi of Eastern province says while he enjoys peaceful coexistence with all other neighbouring tribes, Paramount Chief Mpezeni should not go and install a councillor in Chipangali, a Chewa territory.

He said the action taken by the police should not have been a surprise because the provincial leadership had advised that the Ngoni meeting should not go ahead citing security reasons.

Speaking through his spokesperson James Chirwa, Gawa sais has that: “If indeed the police stopped that meeting from taking place, we feel that was the right thing to do.”

“I further call upon all the Chewa to remain calm and not take the law into their own hands,” he said.

But Paramount Chief Mpezeni says though he has he ‘accepted’ Government’s apology , he wants the government t to apologise in person.

He wondered why Eastern Province permanent secretary Chanda Kasolo, who had earlier given him permission to address his subjects, later changed his mind.

Last week, police used teargas to disperse Ngonis that had gathered in Chewa territory waiting to be addresses by their chief Mpezeni.
