Mulhako Wa Alhomwe Speaks Out; ‘We Are Not DPP’

The Cultural group Mulhako wa Alhomwe has once again distanced itself from the main opposition Mighty Democratic Progressive Party (DPP).

Lhomwe Senior Chief Kaduya of Phalombe district was speaking over the week-end during a Mulhako wa Alhomwe Presser held at its Chonde headquarters in Mulanje district.

According to Senior Chief Kaduya, the grouping was formed with the aim of preserving and promoting the Lhomwe culture. She said the group is not affiliated to any political party.

“We are not DPP, Mulhako wa Alhomwe was formed to preserve our (Lhomwe) culture,” said Kaduya adding that “We have members from different political parties, so it’s very unwise to call the group DPP arm,”

Mulhako wa Alhomwe was formed by the late president Professor Bingu Wa Mutharika in 2008.

The group is expected to hold its annual festival on 8 to 10 October at Chonde in Mulanje district.

  1. That is just being silly and selective. There are alot of tribal groups throughout the country and nobody has ever associated them with a political party. What is so unique with this one? You know what I think – “Anything envious usually ends up becoming talk of the town and indeed dominates the headlines.” I am not from this tribe, mine is Yao, but I am sick to the bone due to these petty jealousy.

  2. There is no mulhakho wa alhomwe registered in the registrar of political parties. Every1 has freedom of association and we are a democracy. Its disappointing to note that tonse 9 party group misled by the young crocs is busy intimidating lhomwes to force them ignore and completely forget about their roots. All they have been used to is only to have chewa herritage as the sole tribal grouping. Whether you like it or not malawi is made up of different cultural groupings and as humans they are at liberty of tracing their roots and teach their youth their precious culture. Gone are days when one tribal grouping dominated the scenes to the extent of completely trampling on other cultures. Whether the grouping was started by a politician or not as long as it promotes cultural heritage and teaches tolerance and peaceful coexistence, there is nothing wrong. Mind you cultural groups are here to stay.
