Organizers of the Mulhako wa Alhomwe cultural festival reveal that this year’s event will celebrate the lives of late former President of Malawi, Bingu wa Mutharika and late Paramount Chief Ngolongoliwa.

Mulhako wa Alhomwe is an annual cultural festival which aims at celebrating the Lhomwe culture.

Speaking at a press briefing at Chonde in Mulanje, Chairperson of the cultural grouping, Leston Mulli said the event will take place on the 3rd of October.

Speaking at the press briefing, the cultural grouping Chairperson, Mulli, revealed that this year, they will be celebrating the lives of the two because they have done a lot for the country and the Lomwe culture.

He said this will be the first time to have the festival without Ngolongoliwa who died this year and it will be years since Bingu also departed.

Mulli indicated that people should expect an exciting Mulakho wa Alomwe as it has been every year but with more surprises this year.

Mulhako wa Alhowe started with an aim of celebrating the Lomwe culture but also to bring together different tribes and celebrate.

Senior Chief Kaduya told journalist that it is important to celebrate culture as to remind people of their roots at the time when western culture is swallowing the indigenous.

She said it was worrying that people seem to forget their culture which is paramount in as far as their history is concerned.

The Chief further encouraged people to patronize this year’s event for it will be more exciting.

Mulli concurred with the chief arguing that people abandon their own traditions such as medicine which are even more powerful.

He then disclosed that preparations are currently at an advanced stage and soon they will be finalized.

Mulhako wa Alhomwe is not the only cultural festival as the Chewa, Ngoni and Tumbukas among other tribes also have theirs.
