About The Annual Nc’wala Traditional Ceremony

To express their gratitude for the harvest, the Ngoni people of Zambia hold the annual Nc’wala Traditional ceremony at Mtenguleni hamlet in the Chipata District, Eastern Province. During this ceremony, selected herdsmen present the season’s first crops to the Paramount Chief. Following this, Ngoni Impis perform dances, and the Khuzeyeni clap and ululate.  The ritual slaughter of a black bull is then performed, and the Chief drinks the blood of the bull. This tradition was passed down to the current generation by the Ngoni forefathers, who originated from the prehistoric Zulu society.

This year’s ceremony is unique because Paramount Chief Mpezeni commemorates the ritual’s 40 years of existence. The ceremony, which will be held on the last Saturday of the month, February 25, 2023, will attract people from all walks of life.
