Chiefs seek finances to tackle wrangles

MIKE MUGALA, Lusaka
THE House of Chiefs has appealed to Government to assist it with finances to address succession wrangles in some parts of the country.
And the House of Chiefs is saddened by succession wrangles in some parts of the country.
Speaking in an interview with the Sunday Mail recently, House of Chiefs’ chairperson Chief Ntambo said it is difficult for the house to handle succession wrangles without finances.
“We do not have a budget of our own and this has made it extremely difficult for us to go to places that are experiencing succession wrangles.We therefore, appeal to Government to help us,” he said.
Chief Ntambo said succession wrangles are of great concern and must be urgently addressed.
“As the House of Chiefs, we are committed to providing national unity and peace. Succession wrangles can cause confusion and can also derail the process of development,” Chief Ntambo said.
Meanwhile, Chief Ntambo has called on Government to address legal irregularities on governance issues concerning the House of Chiefs.
Chief Ntambo said the constitution has irregularities which makes it challenging for the house to administer traditional matters.
“Government must put in place clear legal instruments to deal with land disputes, border disputes and other traditional matters. The House of Chiefs in most cases lacks legal backing for addressing such matters,” he said.
