Vice President Inonge Wina has appealed to the people of Western Province and Limulunga in particular to be more hospitable to those who will visit the province during the Kuomboka ceremony.
Ms Wina made the appeal shortly after she arrived at Mongu airport for a three day working visit to the province.
Mrs Wina explained that the Kuomboka ceremony is an important ceremony celebrated by several Zambians and others from outside the country.
She warned that no one should be allowed to destroy the culture and dignity which the Westerners are known for since time in memorial.
And Western Province Minister Nathaniel Mubukwanu informed the Vice President that the people of Mongu were appreciative of the several developmental projects that are being initiated in the province citing the tarring of the Kalabo-Sikongo road which he said is progressing well.
