POLICE in Southern Province have apprehended a man identified as Simeon Mweemba for declaring himself as Chief Simoonga in Chieftainess Mweenda’s area, a position which does not exist.
Southern Province commissioner of police Godwin Phiri said this happened at Mwanamangala village in Chikankata district.
“Mweemba declared himself as Chief Simoonga on June 8, 2016, a lineage that has never existed in Chieftainess Mweenda,” he said in a statement yesterday.

He said Mweemba appeared in Mazabuka subordinate court last Friday for plea and will appear on August 22 for mention and that trial would begin on September 15.
