Courtesy of Barotseland Watchdog We have a leading researcher in UK Dr. Lubinda Mbundi (Prof) who has made various breakthroughs in the medical field in the UK. In picture receiving a PhD was a family affair for Lubinda Mbundi, one of the first students to benefit from the University of Brighton’s Pestalozzi Scholarship Scheme. Three generations of family were on hand at the Brighton Dome to help him celebrate – his mother Precious, his wife Jana and their four-year-old daughter Masiwa. Also, present to congratulate him was Professor
INTRODUCTION I will, in this short summary, endeavour to outline the foundation of countries administered by Britain in the colonial era, including Barotseland. 1. NYASALAND AND BAROTSELAND During the scramble of Africa, way before there was Northern Rhodesia, there was Nyasaland and Barotseland; Nyasaland was referred to as British Central Africa while Barotseland was referred and known as Barotseland. 2. ZANZIBAR Zanzibar came into the hands of the British Empire. In 1890, under the Helgoland-Zanzibar Treaty, in which Germany
Barotseland existed as a monarch for centuries and practice democracy in every sphere of monarch authority dealings with the people before the word could even be known as the language of today's modern governance. Governance in Barotseland's system has been known as being democratic. Democracy does not simply mean that the views of a majority must always prevail: a balance of the fair and proper treatment of governance issues must be achieved to avoid any abuse of dominant position. Thus, the Litungaship has been protected from public
By Lindunda Wamunyima Of late there has been a lot of speculations and grapevine telegraphy regarding the Barotse Agreement 2015, a purported Zambian Government Modified Option (GMO) for the defunct Barotseland Agreement 1964, BA’64. I find it to be pure Zambian fantasy and fairy tale if at all true and in the brewing. In the following lines, I try to pen down ten reasons why the Zambian GMOs are fallacy, hogwash and unacceptable. 1.    With Barotseland and Zambia being two different states and nations Zambia has no powers to propose an
A Barotse National who acquired South African citizenship, Hon. Ken Sililo Mubu has died. Hon. Sililo was a prominent feature on the South African government run Channel Africa SiLozi program, and commented on a wide array of issues ranging from culture, economy and politics. In announcing his death The DA said they were deeply saddened to hear about the passing of their friend, brother and colleague, Kenneth Sililo Mubu, MP. The DA statement on his passing as displayed on their official website here below reads. The DA is deeply
By Dr. Buxtone Sepiso Linyama Looking at some Nkoya opposition to the Lozi Kingdom & the Lozi in general, makes me feel very sad. I find it hard and fail to understand why some of my Nkoya people, being Nkoya myself, put issues in such a way, as if they feel marginalized or suspicious of Barotseland independence. When did this "hate" feeling or a feeling of suspicion against the "Lozi" really begin? Do we think we, the Nkoyas are more wanted and more recognized in Zambia, than we are in Barotseland? Can someone, please, give me answers,
THE LIE ABOUT THE SO CALLED ONE ZAMBIA ONE NATION MOTTO The national motto of 'One Zambia One Nation' is one of the many things that many people do not know how it came about, and what it really means. Zambia's history has been distorted and reconstructed since 1964 to hide certain truths and diminish certain people. Today most Zambians have a false belief that the slogan of 'One Zambia One nation' was coined by Kaunda, and that it stands for the unity of the 73 ethnic groupings (note not tribes but ethnic groupings) found in Zambia. Well,
The Afumba Mombotwa and Others Versus the people treason trial, now adjourned to 7th September 2015, is a potential Zambia public policy quagmire. To put it crudely, it is a ticking time bomb soon to explode whichever way it will end. As we now hear, many Lawyers are itching to join the defense. Accordingly, three lawyers; two from Zambia while another based in Namibia yet to be named lawyers, may attend the next trial session on September 7th 2015. In 2013, similar such court hearings at Zambia’s subordinate court ended abruptly, with all
