Mvura naya naya tidye mupunga 🎶🎶🎶 (loosely translates to rain pour down and let us eat rice). I used to love that song growing up😂 and if I am being honest I have moments when its raining and I am inclined to sing it. In our culture there is a rain making ceremony called Mukwerera. It was done to appease the ancestors to allow it to rain. They would make beer from past year harvest of rapoko and have a rain making ceremony. Is it significant still in a world where aeroplanes are seeding clouds for rain? Or is rain a blessing from God? I have so many questions including whether its still appropriate but for now I need to research on it. So let’s ponder on this for a while. Here are a few traditions I need to be enlightened on :
1. The beating of varoora (daughter in law) when a member of the family commits suicide.
2. How one has to be delivered from their traditional healing powers to attend a modern day church.
I have no arguments as I am not that enlightened. Enlighten me☕💕
