Mulhako Wa Alhomwe festivities in pictures

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.

  1. Good pictures taken by professionals. Kindly update this site regulary. You are great! I like you Malawi Digest and only disappoit me when you disappear.

    Congrants all Lhomwes! Happy 1st Annivesary.

  2. Good pictures of the event. I hope having posted them on your site, Nyasatimes will not steal them again as they normally do.

    Great job.

  3. I have seen the pictures that have been posted on this site. When Nyasatimes steal them as they always do, we will all know.

    Keep on Malawi Digest.

  4. Good pictures. Though a Tumbuka, I don't see any reason why people are making a fuss about Mulhako. Let them come together and defend their tribe.

  5. The Ngoni's led by Mbelwa are doing it, the Chewas under Malewezi and I hear Lundu is forming his Mang'anja grouping. What's wrong you Malawians.

    Mulhako Wa Alhomwe patsogolo. Next year, I will definately attend, I saw on TV that I missed alot.

  6. Koman a Chairman a Mulhako a Mwanamvekhawo ndiye kuvalatu. Mpaka trouser ya Chitenje cha Mulhako? I have have laughed my lungs out. Is this the same guy who was being framed as RBM governor? No wonder he lost a post. Is he still the Malawi Savings Bank CEO?

  7. though i was not physically there but i can appreciate how great this function was.keep it up. amalawi lekani zotonzana ndife amodzi

  8. why other tribes are not performing function like this, achiev them please. ithink other tribes are descriminated.

  9. Very interesting news about alomwe in Malawi. The Idea of learning and writing emakhuwa/elomwe languages is great. so I suggest to those interested in the language to see the site www.muthuko.zoomshare.com having active home page, photos and blog.

    Congratulations to those seeking to revive and develope peoples culture. Success
