Malawians living in the East Midland of England last week Saturday turned up to witness the first ever Malawian Cultural Jamboree held at Hyson Green Youth Club in Nottingham.
In celebrating Malawi’s inaugural Cultural day presided over by Malawi deputy High Commissioner to the UK, John Tembo Jr. the Malawi Association Midlands (MAM) gave the patrons an excellent afternoon packed with an edifying diversion of amusement where a classic Malawian traditional food rations were served with a touch of the warm heart of Africa’s folklore.
The patrons enjoyed a freshly finger-licking Malawian food which included Nsima, Kilombero rice, Nkhwani wotendela, Mfutso, Chambo and road-runner chicken among others whilst listening to Malawian music and watching performances from Malawians.
The Malawian deputy envoy to London, Tembo, urged all Malawians in the diaspora to embrace their cultural heritage to the core saying all Malawians living abroad are abroad are ambassadors for the country and therefore they must represent their country in a manner that would maintain the good image of the country.
Tembo advised diaspora Malawians to teach their children especially those born in the foreign lands Malawian traditional and cultural values saying nationalities are defined by their culture.
