Seasoned Politician and Homeland Minister Ng’oma Collaborates with Chiefs for Development Projects

Kenneth Zikhale Ng’oma, the Member of Parliament for Nkhata-bay South constituency, urged chiefs within his jurisdiction to become leaders of progress, given their significant role in crucial decision-making processes.

Ng’oma conveyed these sentiments following a gathering with over 300 chiefs from Traditional Authority Malengamzoma, Zilakoma, and Senior Chief Fukamapiri on Wednesday.

Emphasizing the significance of their involvement in national advancement, Ng’oma purposefully engaged the chiefs to reinforce their responsibilities in propelling the country’s development.

In his capacity as a Member of Parliament, Ng’oma underscored the necessity of charting developmental strategies for the upcoming year alongside the chiefs, acknowledging their indispensable contribution to the nation’s progress.

“Am really delighted that we have mapped the way forward with chiefs on various developmental projects that we are planning to implement because chiefs are important in decision making,” he said.

During the meeting, Senior Chief Fukamapiri lauded Ng’oma for the developmental initiatives underway in his region. The senior chief further emphasized the vital role of traditional leaders as genuine government partners, crucial in decision-making processes pivotal for national development.

In a similar vein, Traditional Authority Zilakoma expressed appreciation for Ng’oma’s proactive engagement with chiefs to formulate developmental plans at the onset of the year. T/A Zilakoma also extended gratitude to Ng’oma for ensuring timely distribution of fertilizer to the community.

Meanwhile, Traditional Authority Malengamzoma has appealed to the government to consider elevating the status of chiefs in his jurisdiction.

Ng’oma initiated discussions with the chiefs after distributing food and non-food items to more than 600 elderly individuals as part of the Christmas and New Year celebrations.
