The just installed Ngambela, Mukela Manyando leaped off the vehicle to offer a handshake to the jubilating crowds.
In Limulunga, the Litunga had a thunderous welcome from the loyalists before the Ngambela thanked and encouraged them to continue the support and unity.
“As Ngambela, I will work with you people and I urge you to embrace love and unity for the sake of Barotseland’s prosperity,” he said.
