Mbem’s Nkala’ah festival celebrates culture and athletics

The 2024 Nkala’ah festival in Cameroon’s Nwa subdivision, North West region, was a success, showcasing cultural traditions and featuring a well-organized Mini Majang Race.

Local athletes Gabsebuin Prophet and Bonwi Sidonie triumphed in the Mini Race’s male and female categories respectively. Attendees described the 2024 event as an ‘improved organization’ saying it was a stepping stone to revive the larger Mount Majang Race, previously a regional event featuring over 200 athletes.

Local leaders are collaborating to potentially relaunch the Mount Majang Race in November 2024, aiming for national participation. The race has been a training ground for past Mount Cameroon champions like Godlove Gabsebuin, highlighting its importance.

Prominent figures including the Sub Divisional Officer and the Mayor witnessed the Mini race’s success. This cultural celebration with a competitive edge is fostering community spirit.
