The Lhomwes have launched a monthly cultural day to be observed on the last Sunday of every month.
In an interview with The Atlas Malawi, Chairperson of Mlakho wa Alhomwe, Leston Mulli said the initiative is aimed at giving an opportunity to all people across tribal lines to interact and buy herbs.
“People come in large numbers during the (Mlakho wa Alhomwe) festival to appreciate and also buy medicine and aphrodisiacs.The idea is to make sure that people are healthier and families continue to be intact.” Said Mulli.
This was concurred by acting Paramount Chief Kaduya.
Chief Kaduya said there will be also a platform for families to get advice from elders on how their marriage can continue living happily.
She said there will be Soopa dance in all Lhomwe led villages across the country.
“We are starting tomorrow, 20th October, to enhance social cohesion among Lhomwes and also other tribes.” She said.
This year’s festival took place October 10 and attracted a mammoth crowd.
Mulhako wa Alhomwe has plans of having a maize mill, and a bar at its headquarters at Chonde in Mulanje district.
