Imbumba is an isiZulu language name that means “United togetherin one harmony”.
Project Manager, Sandile Sithole said the idea of Imbumba as a festival of its own is inspired by eThekwini Municipality Vision 2030, and that is to make eThekwini the most caring and liveable place.
“As the brain behind this long journey (Imbumba Fiesta) I believe that this vision should be shared and exercised at grass level to revive families, businesses, arts, culture and recreation, education at all levels, health, politics and justice, and that is what inspired this initiative.
We decided to include food as part of the festival because the
food industry and market is highly competitive for people at ground level who
only make ends meet from "amagwinya" and wors rolls from a street
corner. Also, we included food to express the diversity and lifestyles of
different cultures and colours of
“We want this to be a typical old-school community market- so the food will reflect that: fabulous shwarmas, wors rolls, Thai food, shisanyama- all family friendly budget-friendly food- all by local vendors and micro-entrepreneurs. We are all about community- so there won’t be coffee on sale so that the local coffee shops are not excluded and are supported”, said Sithole.
Entry to the event is free. The music concert will take
place from 3pm until 7pm in
