In an interview with ZANIS, BRE committee Secretary Richard Mukuka said preparations for hosting of the annual event are progressing smoothly.

Mr. Mukuka said the BRE recently held a successful national preparatory meeting with royal highnesses to put in place what was expected during the ceremony.

He said logistics were currently being arranged, adding that construction of support infrastructure around the main arena for the successful holding of the event is currently underway.

Mr. Mukuka said with only one month before the hosting of the event in Malole in Mungwi district, the Bemba Royal Establishment has intensified preparation to showcase the rich culture of the Bemba speaking people.

He called on people all over the country to turn out in large number and attend the Ukusefya Pa Ng’wena Traditional Ceremony so that they can appreciate the rich history and tradition of the Bembas.

Mr. Mukuka has since appealed to the business community to support the event which is schedule for the 10th and 11th of August, 2018.

    • Meant to say you have modernised your traditional ceremony.

      What is going on, are you thinking about it as you go along?

    • The sad thing about ukusefyapa ngwena is the ngwena –crocodile — itself, made of paper mache – can the whole Bemba clan not find a taxidermist or a sculptor to recreate a proper replica? What a joke of a people we are.

  1. Please get a better artist and redo the crocodile! this one looks like it came from a small river or was donated by HH.
