At Chief Kenneth Dlamini's Ummemo ('Cultural Day'), 4 October 2009
In the run up to the Ummemo, Chief Kenneth and the people that I am working with in my project all told me that I must wear 'traditional clothing' this year. In the end, I conceded. It was a bit cold that day, so I wore a top cloth, too, although for most of the parading and dancing, almost all of the men were bare chested. Well, I WAS a bit more pale than most of the others too!
