Ahead Mbum Cultural Festival: Ndu Council Writes to WICUDA National President

 Ahead of the Mbum Cultural Festival to hold in Ndu this December 2014, Ndu Council has written to the National President of the Wimbum Cultural and Development Association -WICUDA. Here below is the letter.


Subject: ORGANIZATION OF A MBUM CULTURAL FESTIVAL 

Martin Fon Yembe
We write to formally inform you that the Ndu Council through deliberation as per Law No. 2004/017 of 22 July 2014 on orientation of Decentralization, in its Section 4, 5 and 22 will be organizing a Cultural Week dubbed Mbum Festival of Arts and Culture ( Mbum FESTAC) come December 2014 in Ndu. In line with the above, the Ndu Council is soliciting the collaboration of her sister council, the Nkambe Council which happens to also be in Mbum land. Our idea here is to have a united people forge forward as one man for the good of our traditional values and culture. The Mbum person is one and indivisible, and we need to start doing things right and in a united manner. We have enclosed the entire program of activities for your perusal and possible proposals to make the event a great success. Considering that one of WICUDA’s main objectives is in the line of promoting Mbum Culture as well as Mbum development and unity; Mindful of the fact that WICUDA is currently deliberating and discussing the organization of a Mbum Cultural week this December 2014; In view of the fact that the Ndu Council has already initiated the moves to organize this festival in Ndu: We of the Ndu Council hereby: 
(i) Express our sincere hope that WICUDA joins hands with the Ndu Council to see to the effective and successful organization of this Mbum Cultural Festival in Ndu according to the proposed dates attached; 
(ii) Pray that WICUDA makes further contacts with the Nkambe Council to make this event a veritable Mbum Festival come December 2014; 
(iii) Wish to state here that the Ndu Council will work closely with WICUDA in this bid and to attend all meetings organized by WICUDA for this purpose and vice versa; (iv) Implore WICUDA to use its avenues to mobilize all Mbum elite, citizens and friends to be part of this historic event in Ndu.
Thanks and May God bless Mbumland and its people.
