LILONGWE (MaraviPost)–Chewa Gulewamkulu cult has of late been in the media for all wrong reasons with the latest chilling case involving some members who sodomized young boys as punishment for reporting late at an initiation camp in Malawi’s central region district of Ntchisi.

Meanwhile, a suspected gulewamkulu dancer, identified by Mayani Police Officer Incharge Assistant Superintendent Macdonald Mulima as Yamikani Katentha in Dedza, is in police custody on allegation that he murdered a 67 year old man last month after a disagreement over funeral arrangement.

In an interview with the local media, Chewa Heritage Foundation (CHEFO) Chairperson Professor George Kanyama Phiri lamented the bad behavior of the cult members. He described them as ‘fake gulewamkulu members’ claiming real members do not engage in such criminal acts. Phiri further said that that his foundation will investigate the Ntchisi incident and those involved will face justice, the traditional way.
