President Michael Sata has been invited to grace this year’s Nc’wala traditional ceremony of the Ngoni people which will take place on February 23rd at Mtenguleni village in Chipata District.
Eastern Province Permanent Secretary Emmanuel Mwamba told the media in Chipata that Paramount Chief Mpezeni has also invited South African President Jacob Zuma and King Goodwill Zwelithini of the Zulu people in South Africa.
Mr Mwamba says the paramount chief has already requested his office to facilitate the invitations to the dignitaries.
He appealed to the provincial local government office and chiefs affairs to be coordinating with the Ngoni Royal Establishment on the preparations of the ceremony.
Mr Mwamba also said the exhuming of King Zwangendaba remains in Nakonde District would take time.
He says the exhuming of the remains would take a process because some historians believed that the late king died at Mapupo in Tanzania while others claim that he died in Chief Nawaitwika’s area in Nakonde District of Muchinga Province.
