Kazanga traditional ceremony of the Nkoya speaking people in Kaoma has been postponed indefinitely due to the death of the cultural festival’s executive committee.
The ceremony was scheduled to take place this coming weekend.
Kazanga Cultural Association National Publicity Secretary Raymond Kabindama disclosed that the association chairperson, Edwin Nkomesha, died on Sunday, 23rd June 2013 in Lusaka after a short illness.
Mr. Kabindama told ZANIS in Mongu today that the association could therefore not go ahead with the festival as planned.
