The airline is offering the fare reduction on return flights scheduled on its Lusaka-Mfuwe route for travellers heading to the ceremony between February 22 and March 1, 2023. 

“In the spirit of unity with our Ngoni cousins, and in recognition of the important role of traditional ceremonies, we are pleased to announce a special 10 percent discount for travellers flying to the upcoming Nc’wala Traditional Ceremony in Chipata, connecting via our Lusaka-Mfuwe route,” said Proflight Zambia Director Flight Operations Captain Josias Walubita.

The Nc’wala Traditional ceremony is a thanksgiving ceremony held by the Ngoni people every year at Mtenguleni village in Chipata District, Eastern Province of Zambia. This ceremony gives thanks for the first harvests of the season. This ritual has been passed on to current generations by Ngoni ancestors who originated from old Zulu culture.
