Picture of Inkosi Chimtunga who reigned from 1896 to 1915

This is probably one of the few pictures of Inkosi yamakhosi Chimtunga called Chimtunga(knobkerry) by his Chewa subjects. From left to right seated are Chimtunga, then Mtwalo and Chindi. As pointed out in the history narrative above, Inkosi Chimtunga was deposed by the British in 1915 for resisting efforts by the British to recruit Mzimba people to join the British Army during the First World War.
