Render support towards the successful hosting of this year’s Kuomboka ceremony-Mweetwa


Southern Province Minister, Cornelius Mweetwa says the new dawn government attaches great importance to traditional ceremonies as they help foster unity in the country.

Mr Mweetwa says it is important for the people in the province to attach value to traditional ceremonies because of the important role they play in fostering unity in the country.

The minister said this in a speech read on his behalf by Provincial Deputy Permanent Secretary, Yolantha Mutyambe last night at the fundraising dinner for the Kuomboka ceremony slated for April 9 in Mongu.

Mr Mweetwa has implored the people in the province to render their support towards the successful hosting of this year’s Kuomboka ceremony which he said brings people together from all walks of life, both local and foreign

And speaking earlier, Kuomboka Fundraising Committee Chairperson, Samuel Mukelabai thanked the people of Choma for their overwhelming support in raising funds that will be directed towards the necessary preparations for hosting the Kuomboka in Mongu.

Several Choma residents clad in Lozi traditional regalia attended last night’s event with many donating funds and pledges.


  1. I hope this time around my honourable president ECL will not be invited. Invitations by upnd are cosmetic and meant to tarnish PF officials.

    PF officials don’t attend this event, you will be misquoted by Hakaindula

  2. Do not politisise this ceremony…. and do not invited Lungu. He will come and block the presidential motorcade.

  3. Last time I was at the ceremony I was rather appalled by the touristic nature of the event, with locals being kept at a distance in favour of musungu’s who didn’t understand one bit what was going on. Shame!

  4. Time to go and drag race the presidential motorcade after all accroding to the current minister of justice it is a simple traffic offence….tiye nayo

  5. These are better left to the concerned tribe. Others should simply be tourists regardless of the positions they hold.
