The PF Kuomboka ceremony is now in top gear. The security is tense. More than 600, heavily armed additional police officers have been deployed to intimidate the owners of the ceremony.
The Nalikwanda will be paddled by Zambian soldiers dressed in Lozi attire and a few Lozi traditionalists who are still loyal to the disgraced Litunga. Home affairs minister Steven Kapyongo and other PF thugs and ministers are already in Mongu to arrange security for Edgar Lungu and also to coordinate the ferrying of PF cadres to the ceremony.
This will be the most political and artificial Kuomboka ceremony.
