Chewas, Ngonis agree to co-exist as advised

THE Ngonis and Chewas have blamed politicians for their tribal rift and have agreed to co-exist as advised by President Edgar Lungu.
Representatives of the two peoples were commenting on President Lungu’s concern about tribal divisions between the Chewas and Ngonis in Eastern Province.
Chewa Royal Establishment chairperson for invitation and publicity Lucas Phiri said President Lungu’s comment is timely because divisions between Chewas and Ngonis have retarded development.
“We have been marrying each other [Chewas and Ngonis], but small petty issues [politics] have been dividing us, the giants,” Mr Phiri said.
