Government has re-instated embattled Senior Chief Ngabu of Chikwawa district after he was fired by former President Peter Mutharika on alleged misconduct grounds last year.

According to a letter dated 14 September signed by Secretary for Local Government Charles Kalemba, the reinstatement is based on the findings that the second commission of Inquiry that President Lazarus Chakwera set up August this year to investigate the Chief's conduct.

Embattled Senior Chief Ngabu of Chikwawa whose real name is Noah Dalasi Chasafali Ngabu has been fighting his firing describing it as 'unfair and unjust.'

People there were accusing the Chief of corruption, grabbing and selling other people's land and unfairly firing village heads allegations which the Chief has repeatedly been denying all along.

The letter says the commission recommended that the Chief be reinstated to his original status meaning that he can resume performing his functions.

Senior Chief Ngabu' reinstatement comes when two families led by Basitole Makwalu and Harvey Sadyankhwani Kholongo of Manja Mkapolo family have been eyeing for the chieftaincy.

Kholongo claims he is a right heir to the throne and that people are twisting things deliberately.

That aside, Minister of Local government Lingson Belekanyama has installed Mlauli Gamu Kasisi Puti as Traditional Authority Kasisi and David Daniel Chiputula as Traditional Authority Makhuwira.

The installation took place at Chamber Council hall on Thursday afternoon.

One disgruntled family Member Joseph Sakaza is challenging the installation of Mlauli Gemu' installation of Kasisi in court.
