The bags were mainly held by insiders of the
grade yananio. A mwami on his accession to the
grade lutombo lwa yananio, was officially conferred a satchel and a lukwakongo mask and an axe.
From the first grade of the bwami, an insider is the generic title of mwami
(pl. bami). The main wife of an insider followed a parallel promotion to the promotion of
her husband within the association. And it was essential that a woman
was introduced to the grade corresponding to that of her husband until the latter could
access to the next grade. Here is the table of the different ranks that the bwami
knew.
