Mulanje, Thyolo launches new Flag, National Anthem
…Ndata named capital city
by: Happy Arnold Soko
The United States of Thyolo and Mulanje (MUST) on Saturday launched a new flag and national anthem, despite the nation of Malawi’s continued disagreement over whether the two districts should become an independent country.
These districts with about 2 million people, are occupied by colonialists who own and control the tea and macadamia nut estates, leaving the locals landless.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with The Malawi Star at Peoples Land Organization (PLO) head office at Khonjeni in Thyolo, Supreme Leader Saint Mussauwa Vincent Wandale said all necessary documentations, icons and symbols to define the country are being finalized.
Unveiling a rough design of the future flag, map and national anthem, he singled out the flag as a sacred geometric design with a whirlwind form symbolizing the power of the Mulanje and Thyolo people.
He explained in an interview, “We cannot have a country without these things to identify us as a separate entity from others. It’s an indigenous people’s nation and as such we are doing things step by step. This is the unveiling of one of many things that are to be unveiled over time. The flag is definition of who are, and is in the form of a whirlwind and we expect it to go all over the world.
Wandale further named Ndata as the capital city of MUST and said that henceforth it will be known as Happiness City. He added that his country will be run by twelve governors who will look after the twelve provinces. All the twelve governors will be reporting to two supreme governors.
According to Wandale, the following is the initial list of Governors:
Dancoster Chitsulo – Ndata (Happiness City)
John Henry Pindani – Bvumbwe Province
Patson Mlemei – Thyolo Boma Province
Chief Milosi – Chizungu Province
Chrispine Nkhoma – Makwasa Province
Douglas Tama – Thekerani Province
Luke Jeasman – Limbula Province
Chief Golden Backstone – Chonde Province
Fadwis Benjamin – Msika-Wanajala Province
Steve Daniel – Mkando Province
Lignet Nelson – Nsona Province
“We are operating under a constitution; as a country we are under threat from the government of Malawi which has continuously denied the sovereignty of our country. To avoid this as an organization, we decided to share all the idle land. As a supreme leader I have the power to decree the use of all these idle lands to the people who deserve it.
“But as we know, once we do that knowing that the government of Malawi is in denial, it means they will do something like destabilizing the distribution of land which to us means is not a good way. I am not a leader who wants to shed blood, as such I have written the United Nations through General Secretary Ban Ki Moon for intervention,” he stated in an interview with the publication.
The UN Security Council has not set a date to take up the resolution but Wandale has moved forward with elevating the Thyolo Magistrate Court to a Supreme Court of Appeal and has promoted the Magistrate for the court to Chief Justice.
“We wrote the magistrate and all the District Commissioners and gave them a seven day ultimatum to leave our premises, but they did not which means they belong to us and they are willing to work for MUST, and as such, with the power vested in me, I have elevated the Magistrate to Chief Justice,” stated Wandale.
Meanwhile, MUST is expected to sign UN treaties and follow the Sustainable Development Goals.
When asked for comment, no one in the Malawian Government had a response to the developing events.
Their previous comments were that they did not consider Wandale or MUST to be worth their time in responding and that he was, “a mad man.”
