Lumbala Nguimbo - The reorganization of the Mbunda tribe, spread across six countries on the African continent, and the resolution of tribal struggles are the main objectives of the new King of the Mbundas, Joćo Pedro Mussole "Mwene Mbandu IV".

Also included in the actions of the new Mbunda sovereign are the enhancement of cultural traits and healthy coexistence with other tribes in Angola, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Namibia, Sudan, Zimbabwe and South Africa.

Mwene Mbandu IV explained that there are children of her tribe who live in a minority, mainly in Sudan, where her people originated, and in South Africa, who need to be rescued and accept to know the culture of their ancestors.

The then pastor of the Union of Evangelical Churches of Angola (UIEA), born in Lumbala-Nguimbo, municipality of Bundas, replaced the late Mbandu Lifuti "Mwene Mbandu III", who in life was a man of vision of the world, a staunch defender of African culture, with comprehensive wisdom and an expert historian.

In the act of enthronement and presentation to the people, the governor of Moxico, Ernesto Mwangala, characterized the Mbunda Kingdom as a partner of the State in solving social problems, and therefore appealed for unconditional support to this traditional power.

The enthronement ceremony of King Mwene Mbandu IV was filled with various rituals, folk dances, maquixi (clown) exhibition, offering of monetary values, agricultural products among other goods.

Afterwards, the new 64-year-old king went to the official residence (nganda), in the company of princes, regedores, sobas, advisers and other members of the traditional court, from some regions of the country and the continent.

The inauguration ceremony was witnessed by the king of the Tchokwe people, Mwatchissengue Wa-Tembo.

The communicative Mbunda people, with a population of 15 million, are one of the oldest and majority ethnic groups in southern Africa.

According to history, it has its origins in Ancient Sudan, which. In 1400, I was among the Bantu groups that emigrated across the continent, settling in Kola, formerly Zaire and now the Democratic Republic of Congo.

They spread to Angola (Moxico and Cuando Cubango provinces), Zambia, Namibia, Zimbabwe, South Africa and a minority in other African countries.

The term Mbunda is a designation that can be found in several other languages, referring to the soil. Literally means red or red earth, but it can also mean meat.

In Angola, this people developed by keeping together and consolidating their culture, language and sovereignty in the territory between the North of the Lungebungo River, south of the Cuando River and west of the Kueve River, centuries before the arrival of the Portuguese colonialists.
