Chief Ndiweni speaks out – Video

Chief Ndiweni speaks out – Video. Zenzele Ndebele took his time to speak to Chief Ndiweni who spoke about his time in prison, the economy, the ruling party and the govt’s decision to dethrone his from his position as a traditional Chief.

Chief Ndiweni who calls himself a die-hard optimist, still maintains all our problems are man-made and they can be rectified. President Emmerson Mnangagwa’s decision to dethrone chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni has angered his clan who have vowed to stick by their traditional leader.

Mnangagwa on Friday removed the outspoken Ntabazinduna chief from his position after the traditional leader’s chieftaincy was challenged by his brother. The Ndiweni elders and Inkosi Advisory Council, Ntabazinduna village headmen, faith groups and the Ntabazinduna community yesterday said Ndiweni remained their substantive chief.

“It is only the Ndiweni clan that can enter that kraal and select the bull for their herd and they have done that,” they said in a joint statement. “No one else can do that, irrespective of their position in society or in the country.

“To make it abundantly clear, the president of the Republic of Zimbabwe cannot enter any chieftaincy clan’s kraal and select the bull for that clan,” they said. “If a community is adamant about their chieftaincy and their heir apparent, there is not a great deal the Office of the President can do about it if they wanted another candidate.

“The only thing they can do is to introduce corruption.” The government has been accused of fighting in Ndiweni’s brother Jorum’s corner. Jorum claims he is the rightful heir to Chief Khayisa Ndiweni’s throne because he is the firstborn son in the family.

Ndiweni, however, told Alpha Media Holdings chairperson Trevor Ncube on the platform In Conversation with Trevor that clan leaders used other criteria in choosing him ahead of his brother.

“It’s not naturally all the time [that] the firstborn son becomes chief in the chieftainship succession or even in the monarchy succession with the Khumalo clan,” he said. “It is only one criteria that you are addressing; that the child is born first, the first born son, then follows a test for that son — that son’s character, the conduct, the morality, all those things come into play.”
