MUTOMBOKO traditional ceremony organising committee chairperson Misheck Kaoma says the institution requires K500,000, to successfully host this year’s event.
Mr Kaoma has since implored the corporate community to help where they can.
He said this in Lusaka yesterday when Rural Electrification Authority (REA) donated 100 shirts worth K27, 000 for the ceremony.
“This gesture will add value to our ceremony and we hope that many more companies can come on board and assist us so that the function can be a success,” Mr Kaoma said.
Mr Kaoma said this year’s Mutomboko ceremony will be held on July 26.
And REA chief executive officer Geoffrey Musonda said the institution always seeks to identify itself with people in rural areas hence the gesture.
Mr Musonda said REA wants to go beyond providing electricity to people in rural areas.
“When we were approached, we felt compelled to come forward and help because we need to be visible at the ceremony,” he said.
He said this year’s event is important as REA has commenced the lighting up of 400 private houses along the main road in the area as well as two secondary schools.
“This is an important gift to the people and it is cardinal that we join them in the celebrations,” Mr Musonda said.
