Chiefs and election fever (4)

The Post reported yesterday that Southern Chiefs are rallying behind Rupiah Banda for the Presidency. A particularly surprising development, since Southern Province is regarded as HH's support base. If HH can still emerge dominant in this area, it will be further proof that the influence of chiefs in the daily lives of rural dwellers no longer extends to political matters. Its one to be watched closely.
