Traditional Killing of Chicken and it’s Meaning in Zambian Tradition



The article discusses reasons why one should avoid killing a chicken in public, especially in the presence of in-laws, and delves into the meaning of the phrase “digging akalindi mulya umuponena umulopa.”


The chicken, known as Inkonko, and its various parts hold symbolic significance in human life. Each step of the process involved in handling the chicken carries specific meanings. For instance:


1. **Kalya Akalindi Twimba Panshi:** This represents the vagina of a woman.

2. **Ulya Umukoshi Tuputula:** This represents the penis of a man.

3. **Blood:** The blood has two parts – the light blood, which represents the fast flow of sperms from the penis, and the thick blood, which flows slowly and represents menstrual blood.


The concept is explained further, emphasizing that the hole dug in the ground symbolizes the vagina. Therefore, when the chicken is killed, the blood that comes out represents sperms. It is emphasized that sperms should enter the vagina and not be on the surface. The article suggests that a well-taught woman should avoid killing the chicken in public due to the reactions that might occur.


The phrase “digging akalindi mulya umuponena umulopa” seems to be part of this cultural context, emphasizing the significance of the act related to the chicken and its symbolism in relation to human anatomy and reproduction.
