Whose Mbunda Royal Family Does The Mbunda Monarchy Belong To? 

By Courtesy of The Mbunda Kingdom Research & Advisory Council on Satuday, 4th June 2022.

It has been almost a complete year since the demise of the Mbunda Monarch, King Mbandu III Mbandu Lifuti in Angola, Mbundas are now in preparations of the Instalation Ceremony of another Monarch, King Mbandu IV. By Mbunda tradition and customs, the responsibilty to select a Monarch lies with the Supreme Council of the Kingdom at the King's palace, after receiving names of candidates from different Mbunda Royal Families, chosen as suitable in each family to be enthroned on the Mbunda Monarchy. Therefore, in this case, Mbundas have commissioned a Mbunda Monarch Installation Committee or Comissao in Portuguese language to assist the Supreme Council of the Kingdom at the palace in this undertaking. This Commission comprises appointed Councillors from Angola, Namibia, South Africa and Zambia, who deliberate these matters on their WhatsApp group to assist the Commission and the Supreme Council of the Kingdom.

The twenty third (23rd) Mbunda Monarch, King Mbandu III Mbandu Lifuti, slept in death on Tuesday, the 20th of ngonde June 2021 in Luena General Hospital, Moxico Province, Angola.

However, like any other undertaking in a group of people, in deliberations, there would be always understanding, misunderstanding, quarelling, and spitefulness. In this case, there has been infighting presenting the Mbandu Royal Family or the Kalyangu Royal Family as being the only Royal Family to succeed on the Mbunda Monarchy Throne as claimed by some sources.

By the history of the Mbunda customs and traditions and the Mbunda Constitution, the Mbunda Monarchy does not belong to a particular or single Mbunda Royal Family. From the first Mbunda Monarch King Nkuungu in KOOLA, now Congo DRC to King Mbandu III Mbandu Lifuti the 23rd Mbunda Monarch, Mbundas had always selected their Monarchs from different Mbunda Royal Families and not one Royal Family only.
