President Lungu during the Kuomboka traditional Ceremony in Mongu on Saturday,April 8,2017-Pictures by THOMAS NSAMA

The Barotse Royal Establishment has announced that this year’s Kuomboka ceremony will be held on 7th April.

Ngambela Nyambe Mwenda said that the programme for the ceremony will run up to 10th April with a series of activities.

Meanwhile concerned citizen William Harrington has advised organizers of this year’s Kuomboka ceremony of the Lozi speaking people to ensure this year’s ceremony is not politicized.

Mr Harrington who is former Senanga Member of Parliament said that politicians should not be allowed to politicize the event.

Mr Harrington said that traditional ceremonies are meant for the people to celebrate their tradition and not for politicians to campaign.

Mr Harrington noted that the Kuomboka ceremony attracts both local and foreign tourists, thus the need not to attach politics to it.

Mr Harrington stated that the organizers must therefore ensure that what happened last year does not re-occur during this year’s ceremony.

Last year, the Mr Hichilema was charged with treason after allegedly obstructing the presidential motorcade during the Kuomboka ceremony.

Mr Hichilema’s convoy allegedly refused to make way for President Edgar Lungu’s convoy, while travelling to a ceremony.

A confrontation erupted between the two convoys, as the president’s motorcade attempted to overtake Mr Hichilema’s.

Police said Mr Hichilema’s convoy endangered the president’s life.

Government later dropped Mr Hichilema’s treason charge and released him from prison

    • Do not invite him this time around until when the inter-party dialogue is concluded. Otherwise he will leave again as the other one is addressing the gathering. No road blocks this time around. 7th April tepatali ka!

    • CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT ZAMBIAN CHIEFS HAVE EVER DONE FOR THEIR SUBJECTS!!?
      THE SAME CHIEFS SOLD THEIR SUBJECTS TO SLAVE TRADERS FOR BEADS AND A FEW GUNS (AND EVEN A MIRROR)
      WE GOT OUR INDEPENDENCE THROUGH POLITICIANS WHILE OUR CHIEFS WERE KOWTOWING TO THE COLONIAL MASTERS.
      THE SAME CHIEFS ARE ONLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ELECTRIFICATION OF THEIR PALACES
      THEY HAVE SOLD VAST TRACTS OF LAND TO CHINESE
      WESTERN PROVINCE IS SO UNDER-DEVELOPED BECAUSE THE LITUNGA HAS TOO MUCH POWER THERE WHICH HE EXPLOITS FOR HIS GLORIFICATION AND THE SO-CALLED ROYAL ESTABLISHMENT.
      CHIEFS SHOULD BE BANNED AND SENT TO THE MUSEUM AND REPLACED BY ELECTED VILLAGE COUNCILLORS.

  2. The dressing I see in this picture is deportable. Immigration should deport these guys upon arrival at Limulunga, back to Lialui.

    Common Law works on precedence and we have got a precedent where someone who was dressed much better than what’s in the picture was deported. We will continue to demand justice until Zambia apologises to Zodwa.

  6. ECL has stopped attending traditional ceremonies when some tribe complained that he is did not attend their ceremony. hh can go and hold a rally there since he feels that Lozis are part of domestic animals.
