President Mwanawasa has commended the lozi people for preserving the Kuomboka traditional ceremony.

Mr Mwanawasa said this was important because it signifies the passing on of culture
from one generation to another.

The President added that culture was a unifying factor which brought people from different walks of life together.

The President said this when he addressed thousands of people who attended this year's Kuomboka ceremony at Limulunga winter palace of the Litunga yesterday.

And President Mwanawasa has sympathized with  the people of Western province at the devastating effects of the floods.

He observed that the floods have caused untold misery to the people in the province adding that many buildings such as rural health centres, roads, bridges and
classrooms collapsed.

Mr Mwanawasa said government is putting up plans to rehabilitate such infrastructure destroyed by floods countrywide.

The President also disclosed that construction of Shangombo district hospital was expected to be completed this year.

The President also said his government will ensure relief food is sent to all parts of the country affected by floods.

He said he was doing everything possible to assist the people of Lukulu following their complaints that he had neglected them.

Meanwhile, President Mwanawasa thanked the people of Western province for the overwhelming support to his party during last year's tripartite elections in which
he won a second term in office.
