The population of Mundri West has received its first raindrops during weekend on 18th June 2022 after nearly a month without the rainfall following a traditional ritual was held by chiefs and those responsible for rain making.

Last Thursday, the Paramount chief of Mundri West County, Alexzander Juma Baba held a meeting with all the traditional leaders to find out why there was no rainfall in Mundri since May.

However, during the meeting some of the resolutions were adopted; among them were that all the chairpersons of quarter councils should assemble their communities to go and perform archery so that rain could start to fall.

While, responding to the directives of Paramount Chief last week meeting on 17th June, the residents of Miri-Kalanga in the outskirts of Mundri town turned in larger numbers to perform the traditional ritual aimed at bringing back the rainfall. 

Speaking to No.1 Citizen Daily Newspaper in Mundri on Tuesday, 21 June 2022, the Boma Chief of Miri-Kalanga, Mr. Gideon Madi said that other rituals will be carried out again.

Chief Madi has revealed that more than sixty people on Monday had turned up including men and women to perform the traditional ceremony. 

He said that populace have assembled to perform a traditional ritual in an attempt to bring back rainfall on their land.

On her part, the Chairperson of quarter council in Miri-Kalanga block B, Rashol Dawa added that her block has also turned up including women and men to participate in the initiative.
