Malawians urged to promote their own culture

52

Government has called on Malawians to take pride in their culture and keep cultural practises alive in order to boost tourism in the country.

Minister of local government and rural development Kondwani Nankhumwa said this during this year’s Umthetho Cultural Festival at Hora Mountain in Mzimba. The festival is an annual event where the Ngoni tribe showcase and celebrate their customs and traditions.

Nankhumwa said government recognises the big role culture does in the tourism sector.

Nankhumwa: Has made the plea.

“Government recognises the big role culture plays in the tourism sector and government will promote culture for the betterment of the economy,” said Nankhumwa.

He added that culture is a by-product of the tourism sector as people who visit Malawi do not only come to see the lake but also to see the dances that is culture.

The minister then called on Malawians to appreciate other cultures since people are now living in one global community.

“Let us be keen to learn about other cultures so that we develop a greater understanding of the world we live in,” said Nankhumwa.

On his part, Inkosi ya Makosi M’mbelwa encouraged the people who attended to help conserve the environment so that the country should not experience adverse effects of climate change.

“Climate change is a serious problem so let us rethink our ways,” said M’mbelwa.

The event was attended by chiefs from all regions of the country. Traditional leaders from countries such as Tanzania and Zimbabwe, religious leaders, and members of the opposition were also present at the event.
