This was disclosed during a news conference on the progress of the preparations for the 9th annual celebrations.

President Arthur Peter Mutharika and First Lady Gertrude Mutharika are scheduled to attend the celebrations, which will be held under the theme “Youth and Culture”.

Actually, the celebrations will commence on Saturday, October 29 with dancing competitions that will see the best tradition dances being selected to perform on Sunday.

National Publicity Chairperson Dickson Makhumba said Sunday’s celebrations will be “unique and different” from the previous celebrations as this year’s edition focuses on the youths and girl child education.

Makhumba said they are committed to championing the girl-child education after observing that girls do not go further with their education due to early marriages, child labour and harmful cultural practices.

“We have a role to promote and encourage girl child to remain in school so that we can have equity education that will see our nation developing. We want to be teaching the youth about their rich culture so that they can preserve it and not copying other people’s culture.

“With the internet and social media, young people are copying Western culture and this no good to our country, hence the theme youth and culture. We want to instill the spirit of integrity, patriotism and hardwork among young people,” said Makhumba, who was flanked by the grouping’s Administrative Secretary Mchanakhwaye Mpuluka and Deguma Vokhiwa, Publicity Committee member.

He also said as a cultural grouping, they are committed to teaching Lhomwe people about their beliefs and traditions,  mainly those not harmful to the society; teaching the youth about their language through the Lhomwe schools established across the country.

Makhumba further hailed the media for its support to tribal and cultural groupings in the country and urged all Malawians to join them on Sunday.

“This year’s celebrations will be the best of all. We have invited other tradition cultural groups across Malawi to celebrate with us on this material day and these groups have been requested to come with their traditional dances that will be showcased on this day on top of the Lhomwe famous dance of Soopa and many others,” said Makhumba.

Mulhako wa Alhomwe, headed by Board of Trustees and coordinated by a secretariat, was formed in 2007 by the late President Bingu wa Mutharika to preserve and promote culture among Lhomwe people, who are spread across the country.

You haters..why can’t you form your own grouping instead of kulimbana ndi Mulakho. You are wasting your time because Mulakho will continue to advance in its popularity and agendas.

you DPP and Lhomwes you are busy eating Malawi Government money. Your time will come. You will surely perish! You use tax payers money to organise your Mulhako wa Alhomwe festival. You use government vehicles to carry people from all over. This idiotic behaviour must stop. Its time to separate such things from government resources otherwise troubles shall follow you one day!!!!!

This is indeed political. If it’s not, arrange for another guest of honor this year other than the president, someone championing for the growth of culture in Malawi or outside the country.

Lets not be fooled that this grouping was organised to promote lomwe culture, it was rather organised to ensure that lomwes remain in power. This is not a cultural grouping, its rather a political grouping with hidden agenda. I hate this grouping more than sin itself. Enafe titha kuzalephera kuwa mu ufumu waku kumwamba because of this grouping.
