M’gumano Wa Asena Na Amang’anja celebrations on the cards

The Sena and Mang’anja tribes from Chikwawa and Nsanje districts will on October l4 this year celebrate a cultural festival called M’gumano Wa Asena Na Amang’anja at the headquarters of Paramount Lundu in Chikwawa.

Joseph Tembo to perform

M’gumano Wa Asena Na Amang’anja Publicity Secretary, Stanley Mthenga Nyandoro said the day would also mark the official launch of the M’gumano, an annual gathering for the two tribes to promote their cultural values.

“The festival will be celebrated to reflect the way the two tribes have lived harmoniously for many decades,” Nyandoro said.

“As such, it will be an exciting event because the two tribes will also showcase their cultural values and traditions. For example, the Sena will perform their traditional dance called ‘Utse Nkhetekete’ while on the other hand the Mang’anja will perform ‘Gule wamkulu and Chitsukulumwe, among others,” he said.

Nyandoro said popular musicians from the Shire Valley including Joseph Tembo, Nyandoro Mthenga, Khatwa Moffat Aligiza, Phallyce Mang’anda, Katelele Ching’oma and Eliza Mponya will spice the event with their performances.

He, therefore, appealed for financial and material support from well wishers towards the success of the M’gumano Wa Asena Na Amang’anja festivities.

“We expect that the M’gumano Wa Asena Na Amang’anja festivity will be presided over by President Professor Arthur Peter Mutharika,” Nyandoro disclosed.

Lets just have a national cultural day as Hon. Kaliati Akweni once suggested. These tribal based festivities are fueling divisions in a country already fractured by tribalism.
