. NcÃ¢â¬â¢wala Ceremony, Zambia is mostly cerebrated by the Ngoni tribe. The Ngoni people reside in the eastern edge of Zambia which is close to Chipata. The NcÃ¢â¬â¢wala is celebrated at the end of February every year. The NcÃ¢â¬â¢wala ceremony involves Paramount Chief Mpezeni dressed in leopard skin re-enacting an old tradition which has roots in early Zulu culture. The Chief must taste the first fruits of the land, (usually maize, sugarcane and pumpkin). The King must then experience a ritual rebirth which involves home confinement for a period of time before the blessing of the fruits. A specially chosen black bull is speared in front of the crowds and the chief drinks the bullÃ¢â¬â¢s blood. The members of the Ngoni tribe then rush at the dead animal and tear at the carcass and cut out chunks of the meat.
