Over the weekend, all roads led to Chonde in Luchenza Mulanje where the Lhomwe people were commemorating the 1st anniversary to the day they launched their cultural grouping, the Mulhako Wa Alhomwe. There was eating, drinking and dancing among many other things. It was all, Alhomwe Noophiya, meaning Lhomwes have arrived. Malawi Digest was there to capture the event for you.
