Bwalo la a Chewa Foundation ( BOLA- CEFO), has expressed happiness that its patron, His Royal Highness Paramount chief Dr. Lundu of Chikwawa has been officially invited to attend the Mulhakho wa a Lhomwe cultural ceremony in Mulanje district.
Dr. Lundu will meet face to face his brother of the Nyangu family, Paramount King of the Chewa in Zambia, Kalonga Gawa Undi who has also been invited to the ceremony alongside with the Chewa Heritage Foundation ( CHEFO).
The two Chewa groupings will be meeting for the first time after Bwalo la a Chewa was launched in style in Dowa on 7th September, 2019 proving to the world that it is for all the Chewas in Malawi.

Speaking during a review meeting after its launch , Bwalo la a Chewa National Executive Director, Reverend Flywell Somanje said Mulhakho has honoured its patron Dr. Lundu meaning that Bwalo la a Chewa will share the honour to all the Chewas in Malawi.
Rev. Somanje said as per Chewa tradition, Paramount chief Dr. Lundu will not go alone to the function, he will be escorted by Bwalo la a Chewa chiefs council and other members of the grouping to grace the occasion.
He asked all the Chewas in Malawi to join their fellow Chewas in the southern region in their large number to be with their patron showing oneness as Bwalo la a Chewa has always been preaching.
CHEFO has on several occasions been criticizing the formation of Bwalo la a Chewa Foundation describing it as a grouping aimed at bringing confusions, and a threat to national unity amongst the Chewas in Malawi.
Some quarters of the society have been linking Bwalo la a Chewa as behind the DPP working towards dividing the Chewas in order to support Mutharika and his party.
However, Rev. Somanje has been maintaining Bwalo la a Chewa stand that it is non- partisan encouraging all the Chewas in Malawi to join a grouping of their own choice.
