The annual festival celebration by the Lhomwes that started under the reign of former head of state, Bingu wa Mutharika, and was accused of encouraging tribalism and nepotism by critics returns this year at the traditional Chonde ground at Luchenza.
According to the organizing committee, the festival will be held on Saturday, October 27, and this time around there are expected to be a lot of activities that will transcend beyond the usual activities. Without specifying what the other activities would be, the organizers just indicated that the event this year will be unlike the previous ones.
Meanwhile, business magnet, Leston Mulli, of the Mulli brothers label has pledged to pump in 20 million kwacha into the activities of the festival. This comes at a time when the magnet has complained on being victimized by the current government in his business dealings.
