    It is the greatest festival in Barotseland. It is usually the only important time when the Litunga appears in public. Hence every Lozi of substance would make every effort to attend the Kuomboka. This is a wonderful documentary. The comments by Prince Aka and Princess Inonge are interesting and factual.
