According to the central region chairperson Frank Mazizi, it is important for people to preserve their culture though they are based in different places away from their villages.
Mazizi urged all lhomwes to promote their culture and co-exist with people of other cultures as one way of fostering peace and unity in the country.
Board of Trustee for Muhlakho wa Alomwe Dr Dan Namarika commended the lhomwes in 2017 and advised to continue with the same spirit. The gathering was organized to induct the newly elected mulhako wa alhomwe district chairs from the nine districts in the central region.
At the event, locally prepared meals like cooked dry cassava commonly known as Makaka mixed with peas (Nandolo), mice and locally brewed beer (masese).
Spicing the event were lhomwes dances such as maraphi, tchopa, and Joe Gwaladi performed his popular songs including Tumboccid.
