OH YE BAROTZISH - TUKONGOTE ANA KALUYA NGOMBE, A POEM

There is no argument. There is no dispute. There is no quarreling. There is no conflict There is no misunderstanding. Only frank talk between Barotseland and Zambia is needed. There is no circumlocution. The Agreement was terminated, rescinded or revoked... Hence, there is nothing in common between Barotseland and Zambia apart from Black skin. The white skin of Germans does not make them French who have also white skin. Naha kiyaluna, Toho yanahakiMulena. Lu limamwaBuloziLu yambanikuyalelalita...

What Is The Purpose Of Belonging To A Country Where One Derives No Benefit?

The level of ignorance among Zambians regarding the legality of Barotseland’s self rule is shocking.

Dear Editor, It is surprising that even at a point in time when Barotseland’s independence declaration has drawn attention of the international community and media; it is still not covered by Zambian media houses. No wonder Zambians fail to grasp the basis of our stand and that the term ‘secession’ is a misnomer when applied to Barotseland and Zambia.The aim of explaining the Barotseland issue over and over is a starting point in undoing the ignorance engulfing the Zambian citizenry due to Za...

Boris Muziba, Nayoto Mwenda and Sikwibele Wasilota (Barotseland Kingdom) Vs. Zambian Government

The case involving the three Barotseland nationals illegally detained at Kaoma Prison by the Zambian Government namely Boris Muziba, Nayoto Mwenda and Sikwibele Wasilota, the Barotseland National Youth League executive members which was slated for the 8th of April, 2014 was adjourned to the 9th of April, 2014 due to the non-availability of the Magistrate handling the case. The trio is charged for having written and published a letter intended for the former Ngambela Clement Sinyinda who they suspected to be collaborating with Mr. Sata against the independence of Barotseland Kingdom. In this case it is surprising that the person whom the letter was intended didn’t complain, instead Mr. Sata, and his Government have complained against the authors of this letter. In the letter there was nothing incriminating and it was intended for a Lozi and not a Zambian.

The detained have for several occasions defined themselves as Barotseland nationals, and that they do not recognize the validity of the Zambian law in the Barotseland Kingdom; as there is one Head of State the Litunga King Lubosi Imwiko 2, one National Flag, one National Constitution and one Government just like Zambia.

“Zambia is a republic whilst Barotseland is a Kingdom, and the two will never be one. We have stated that if Zambia doesn’t recognize the sovereignty of Barotseland, then they also don’t recognize the sovereignty of Zambia in Barotseland Kingdom” the trio.

The great multitude of sympathizers, family members, and supporters thronging at the Kaoma Magistrate Court wearing t-shirts bearing the words “Barotseland Ki Naha” was seen in a jovial mode singing songs in support of the trio. Though the sympathizers, family members and general supporters of Barotseland’s independence expressed their discontent about the way the case was being handled, and they condemned all the adjournments, and they described it as a sign of judicial failure and abuse of the Zambian Government.

The case was adjourned to the 9th April on account that the Magistrate handling the case didn’t show up. There are also strong rumors that even on the 9th the case would not take off because the Zambia Police are becoming increasingly uncomfortable with the growing number of case followers, and also that this case was also helping to spread the independence cancer of Barotseland Kingdom to the Kaoma region, and that people from that area are being exposed to special information that was hidden by Mr. Kaunda.

Meanwhile, Linyungandambo committees in Kaoma are now very active and even the fear of being arrested has vanished from their lives. It is to our common knowledge the arrests that Zambia is making in Barotseland Kingdom is not working to Zambia’s advantage, but it is working for Barotseland Kingdom, and this is seen in the exponential growth of the number of sympathizers and supporters that join the bandwagon. This case also is building resistance in the people against the criminal aliens.

Asking the team of Barotseland National Youth League and sympathizers that came from Mungu whether they will wait for tomorrow’s court session; with an emphatic affirmative they answered “we will not return until we have attended the court session. What we want is to go back to Mungu with our heroes” they said.

9th April, 2014 Case Takes Off – Eye Witness Account by Kalaluka

The case was adjourned from the 8th to the 9th which was the following day. The Kaoma resident magistrate made mention that the case could not proceed on the 8th because magistrate Malata didn’t show up for some unknown reasons. After that the 3 detainees were taken back to Kaoma prison, we did the usual solidarity activities. We sang the Barotseland National Anthem and solidarity songs.

But when we tried to follow up on what happened, we learnt that it was a deliberate move why Malata didn’t show up on the 8th. As a result, we also decided to spend a night in Kaoma to attend the court session on the 9th of April, 2014.

On the 9th, at exactly 09:20hrs the court was already in session, likewise Prosecutor Mwakalombe made her move in order for them to forcefully put our compatriots to trial. But ultimately, the trio maintained their stance that they cannot be tried by any Zambian court or by Zambian law. They reiterated that they already made an application before the same court but the court decided to pay a blind eye towards it. But magistrate Malata acting adamantly decided to proceed with the case.

This time a second state witness by the name of Wasamunu, a teacher at Kambule Technical High School (Barotseland National School) who is also a police reserve according to our source. He also gave his version of the rehearsed and falsified statement testifying against his fellow Barotseland Nationals.

After taking oath, Wasamunu said on the 19th of January,2014 when he was in town, he saw some people around Sianga area, who looked like they were scrambling for something as a group while making certain utterances.  According to him, he never paid attention but when he reached PUMA filling (Service) station, he saw some papers lying on the ground. He picked them up and read the front page which was referenced, “Attempted Coup against Barotseland Government” and the letter was for the attention of Mr. Clement W. Sinyinda. He further said that he read only the front page after that, he threw away the paper and rushed to his home to inform his beloved wife that she should not go in town.

After that he claimed that called Mambilima to inform him about what he has found in town.

When he was asked to say if he saw the signatures or not, his reply was that he didn’t and neither did he know who wrote the letter. But when it was time for the trio to cross examine him, they all refused to ask him any question citing that they have question for him, yes, but not in the current court. And after that, Magistrate Malata adjourned the case to the 22 April 2014 for mention, and 29 to 30 for possible trial.

Even on this day we sung the Barotseland National Anthem and many other songs of patriotism and praise. We continued singing patriotic songs while walking from the court premises through Kaoma town center to Naliele Palace.

End of Report.

Magistrate Malata adjourned the case to the 22nd of April, 2014 for mention, and 29th to 30th April, 2014 for possible trial.
