One of organizers of the organizers of the Mulhako wa Alhomwe annual cerebrations Leston Mulli has distanced the grouping from the opposition Democratic Progressive party (DPP).
According to Mulli, Mulhako wa Alhomwe is a cultural grouping inclusive of all the Lomwe without considering their political religius affiliations.
“Our grouping is purely based on preserving our culture while DPP is a political party and no any linkage to us. They do their bussiness as a political party while we do our own things as tribal grouping,” said Mulli.
As it is expected to hold its annual festival, the grouping which was founded by late president Bingu wa Mutharika in 2008, has revealed plans to open up cultural schools in towns and cities soon after the Sunday carnival.
“We are done with all the preparations and all is set this Sunday, we are inviting all political parties, organisations and people regardless of which tribe they belong to to come and celebrate with us,” said Mulli.
This year’s carnival is set to cost close to K100 million with over 80 dances set for display.
According to the grouping, 50 drums of masese beer and 150 litters of Kachasu have been distilled beside purchasing two trucks of Chibuku opaque beer in readiness of the carnival.
Mulli himself has provided 12 buses and other 30 vehicles to ferry people to and from the carnival with over 3,000 Mulhako members coming from the northern region.
