New Headman Ngwenyeni installed


​Kenias Mukachana, the new headman.

Morris Bishi
Chiredzi Bureau - Malipati
- Kenias Mukachana was installed substantive Headman Ngwenyeni at a colourful ceremony held at Muhlekwani Primary School in Malipati under Chief Sengwe in Chiredzi South this week.
Mukachana (41) who is married and has been previously working in South Africa became a substantive headman after his father who was substantive headman Paulos Mbulumete Mukachana died in 2009.
David Ngilichi then acted as Headman from 2011 to 2013 as per Traditional Leaders' Act.
Speaking on behalf of Ignatius Chombo, the Minister of Local Government, Chiredzi District Administrator Mrs Clara Muzenda urged the new headman to work in peace with his subjects and respect the rule of law.
She also urged the traditional leaders in Sengwe area to campaign against children of school going age who illegally cross to South Africa.
"Chapter 15 of the Constitution provides the overall frame work under which traditional leaders operate. Headman Ngwenyeni therefore stands guided by the laws of the nation in the discharge of his duties hence guard against inconsistency" said Muzenda.
Mrs Muzenda said Government in partnership with Plan International is engaging in the rehabilitation of road network and Manjinji irrigation scheme under food for work programme and urged the new Headman and his community to partner well for such initiatives to be a success.
"Let me advise that Government has departed from the culture of free food hand outs as all able bodied men and women are expected to do developmental projects in return for food of cash assistance" added
Muzenda.
Muzenda also said there is need for the community to be united against cattle rustlers who cross over from Mozambique with connivance of the locals to smuggle cattle to Mozambique saying.
Chief Sengwe hailed the installation ceremony and said it is important for all the Shangaan people.
"This is an important day for the Shangaan people as you can see the community is happy. Chiefs are given power by
the President and we were empowered to try cases but my advice to Headman Ngwenyeni is for him to lead with wisdom" said Chief Sengwe.
Ngwenyeni headmanship is of the mlilo/moto/fire totem which is common among Shangaan tribes. The headmanship was ushered in 1944 by the then Magubu whose grandfather moved into the then Rhodesia from Mozambique.
Due to old age Magubu nominated his son Paulos Mbulumete as his assistant in the dischare of duties before his eventual sappointment in 1974 upon his death. The headmanship has four registered village heads under it namely Ngwenyeni, Hadhama, Marumbini and Mafunjwa and other
village heads are still to be formally registered.local news
