Kuomboka ceremony set to deepen cultural exchange between Lozi, Bemba people


Bemba Royal Establishment Spokesperson, James Mulenga, says the announcement by the Barotse Royal Establishment that Paramount Chief Chiti Mukulu would be guest of honour  at this year’s Kuomboka Ceremony scheduled for April 20 is recipe for national harmony.

Mulenga who is known as ‘Washanga Impika Shalubemba’ in Bemba traditional circles was heard on Radio Mano, tracked by Zambia Monitor on Saturday, saying the gesture was heartwarming.

“The gesture will enhance the relationship between the Lozis and the Bembas while fostering national unity,” the traditional leader said.

He noted that the move would, in addition, facilitate continued culture exchange given that several people would accompany the Mwine Lumbemba to the Kuomboka ceremony.

On Tuesday April 2, 2024, Barotse Royal Establishment announced through Ngambela Mukela Manyando that Paramount Chitimukulu of the Bemba people had been invited to be a guest of honour at this year’s Kuomboka ceremony.

Last year Litunga Lubosi Imwiko II of the Lozi people graced the Ukusefya Pan’gwena traditional ceremony for the Bemba people at Ngwena Arena in Mungwi District.

This gesture is seen as a reciprocal visit aimed at strengthening the relationship between both tribes.
