Kalanga carnival set for Plumtree

By Divine Dube

THE Kalanga Language and Cultural Development (KLCDA), a language and culture organisation working to promote Kalanga renaissance in Zimbabwe will next week host a carnival – under the theme ‘KubuKalanga Ndiko Kanyi Kwedu’ (the Kalanga nation is my homeland).

The fest, organisers say, is aimed at reuniting BaKalanga and to fundraise for Kalanga secondary school textbooks which KLCDA is currently working to publish.

The fete which is set for Plumtree town, the capital of the Kalanga community in Zimbabwe is similar to the festival which KLCDA held recently in neighbouring South Africa where numerous Kalanga people are based.

In a statement posted on their website, the organisation said it will on 27 December host a gathering of ‘its members and BaKalanga in general’ to celebrate their language and culture.

Kalanga language received official recognition in the Zimbabwean Constitution in 2013 following a referendum which saw thirteen more languages being officialised in addition to Ndebele, Shona and English.

“BaKalanga will gather in Plumtree, kuTitji to celebrate their language and culture, get to know each other amid a variety of performances from various popular arts groups,” reads the statement.

“The event will also fundraise for the Kalanga ZJC Textbook Writing Project which is already underway to facilitate the introduction of TjiKalanga Language as a subject at Secondary School level.”

The carnival will be characterised by live performances from local artistes such as Tedzani and BaKalanga Cultural Group, Ithemba Lensindiso, Tjedza TjeBaKalanga Gospel Group, Nelisiwe Ndazi and BuKalanga Gospel, Albert Nyagumbo and BuKalanga express and Ntandoyenkosi Dumani among others.

In addition to arts activities, a consortium of traditional Kalanga dishes will also served at the jamboree.
“KLCDA would therefore like to take this opportunity to extend a special invitation to all BaKalanga and everyone who has an interest in the development of our language to come and be part of the gathering”, further reads the statement.
