PRESIDENT Lungu is this Saturday expected to grace the Kulamba traditional ceremony of the Chewa people in Mkaika, Katete.

Kulamba is a traditional ceremony of the Chewa people drawn from Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique and they pay homage to their Paramount Chief Kalonga Gawa Undi.

Kulamba traditional ceremony organising committee acting secretary Chief Chanje said organisers have lined up several activities which started on Tuesday and will go on through to Saturday.

“I would like to encourage people to come in numbers and attend this traditional ceremony, which will have a lot of interesting activities,” he said.

The traditional leader appealed to all patrons who will be travelling for the ceremony to observe traffic rules and avoid drinking and driving.

According to Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Chanda Kasolo, depending on the programme in Mfuwe where he was having a working holiday, President Edgar Lungu may grace the annual showpiece.

Mr Kasolo however said President Lungu had not yet confirmed his availability to the ceremony.

“The President might officiate at the ceremony since an invitation was extended to him or not,” he said.

Kulamba is a Chewa traditional ceremony in which Chewa chiefs pay homage to their King, Kalonga Gawa Undi.
During the ceremony, the chiefs brief the King on the situation in their Chiefdoms highlighting major issues and developments.

They also present gifts to the King. Kulamba ceremony started before the 15th century.

  2. @ Nostradamus Why are you concerned about ECL when u know he is not your President. Wait for your HH who is likely to become President in 2026, in case no one emerges before that time, then u can happily pass your useless comments. Leave Him to us, one chagwa.

  3. EDGAR will come back from E/Province using Mazhandu Bus becoz he’ll no longer be entitled to Challenger Just.

    I personally request that President MATIBINI does the following:-

    Arrest any cadre violence
    Kick ZAF out of partisan politics
    Unban Post Newspaper, Muvitv Komboni Radio & Itezhi-tezhi radio
    Criminalize any tribal sentiments especially from Kambwili
    Instruct DeadNBC against any bias
    Revamp ECZ to avoid a repeat of what happened during last elections
    Warn Police IG against breaking the law with bias towards PF cadres

    Thats the last hope for DEMOCRACY IN ZAMBIA

  4. In your article you are addressing Lungu as president?
    Who told you that the ***** is our president?
    HH is the person Zambians voted for as president.
    Don’t mislead us.
    Currently Lungu is an illegal president!
    Period!

  5. Is Lungu entitled to be called president? Is he working legally or illegally? And if so which and who’s resources is he using? Is he allowed to be dipping into tax payers money? Has everything been cleared for us to refer to him as president?

    • ECL IS THE PRESIDENT AND WILL CONTINUE BEING SO FOR THE NEXT FIVE YEARS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. YOUR BITTERNESS WILL ONLY POISON YOU AND NOT THE PRESIDENT.
      GOD BLESS YOU.

  6. @ARM CHAIR CRITIC learn to be sensible in your writing. There was no animosity in the previous comment and questions asking the stance of the position of the president for some of us who are not there. Are we not allowed to ask questions? This is the problem with people like you who are clouded by judgement and hate. Learn to collaborate and most of all cleanse yourself of that hatred you have towards humanity. Just an FYI you are writing in caps-lock and in Academic Writing if ever you have taken a degree course is the same as shouting. There is no need to shout on this blog.

  7. Who does not know that ECL is the President / President elect? where are you? in the world or universe? If you don’t know how come your are on this blogger? This is what is making people annoyed when people like you ask silly questions like who is the president of Zambia, why is Lungu in Mfuwe, rubbish, ECL is the President of Zambia until otherwise, but of now learn to live with it.

  8. Edgar is NOT President of Zambia. He miserably lost the 11 August elections to Hakainde Hichilema of UPND. The earlier he comes to accept this reality, the better for him. Please Malawi, Mozambique and all fools in Eastern Province, wake up to this reality!
