President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika has called on chiefs in the country to be development oriented.

 

The President said this during the elevation of T/A Kabudula to Senior Chief at Kabudula Primary School Ground in Lilongwe.

 

Prof Mutharika said as a development conscious leader, he will work tirelessly with all chiefs to ensure Malawi moves ahead in development.


The President then assured Malawians that his government will strive to promote culture to ensure that Malawians enjoy their cultural diversity.


“The elevated chief has played a vital role in the development of the area hence his being promoted.


“Senior Chief Kabudula is a man of patriotism. He has been very instrumental in development activities in this area,” he said.


He urged all chiefs and traditional leaders to work hard in the development of their areas while upholding their cultural values at the same time.


Mutharika also called upon chiefs in the country to work with security agencies to deal with the recent spate of albino killings and abductions.


He said as part of stiffening the country’s laws, he has recommended a life imprisonment sentence for persons found to have murdered or in possession of body parts of an albino.


“We have now strengthened our laws. Any person charged with the offence of murdering an albino will face a life sentence,” he disclosed.


The Senior Chief whose real name is Lotani Njereza took over the chieftaincy mantle in 1998.
