Stardard chartered bank has pledged to continue supporting traditional ceremonies in Zambia.
Country head of Global Banking Emmanuel Banda says a country without culture is lost, hence there is need for all stakeholders to embrace traditional ceremonies.
Mr Banda says traditional ceremonies play an important role in passing on culture from generation to generation.
He said this today when he presented a cheque worth 50 thousand Kwacha towards Ukusefya pa ng’wena traditional ceremony which is scheduled for tomorrow in mungwi district.
Mr. Banda says being part of ukusefya pangwena this year is very important to the bank because its one way of giving back to the community.
And receiving a cheque on behalf of Ukusefya pa ng’wena fundrasing committee, committee chairperson Ambassador Godfrey Musonda thanked Stardard Chatered Bank for the gesture.
Ukusefya pa ng’wena is an annual traditional ceremony to commemorate the migration of the Bemba people from Kola to present day Lubemba via the Luba Kingdom.
