Agnes Mizere takes us through African/Malawian spirituality, talking about “Makewana”, which in the Chichewa vernacular language of Malawi literally means the Mother of the Children – but meant to convey the meaning Mother of the People. In history, she was known as a powerful rainmaker.

She says that the The last Makewana stays within Msinja holy area at a village called Kachikoti and she administers lessons and advisory (services) at the Dziwe la Anamwali – (a deep pool located a stone throw away from the village).

“In the Maravi, MAKEWANA is the high priestess of the holy shrine of Msinja within the centre of the kingdom. She is assisted by other priests who are under the leadership of Tsang’oma. Key events include praying for rains and fortune and which constituted the religion of the original Maravi people. She mediates between people and their God.”
