Zambia’s Continuity of Political Activities in Barotseland Unacceptable - Saleya Kwalombota

Political corruption, lack of respect for rule of law, human rights violations are all injustices Zambia has and is still committing in Barotseland. Zambia  pursues a policy that fundamentally denies the nation of Barotseland its right to self-determination, undermines the UN Charter and other basic principles of international law, and challenges a series of UN Security Council resolutions, it shows just how far to the right this undemocratic  Zambia  has become. Despite decades of petitionin...

Understanding Resistance to Change By Stakeholders in the New Nation of Barotseland – By Lindunda Wamunyima

Allow me space in your wonderful media channel to share this screed on the subject of change and resistance once more. From interactions with people at home and abroad it is evident that there is still ignorance and resistance to the momentous change of March 2012 when Barotse Royal Kingdom officially accepted the abrogation of the BA’64 by its former UNITARY STATEHOOD PARTNER Northern Rhodesia. What needs to be reiterated time and again is that playing oblivious to the idea whose time has com...

Nothing Will Restrain The People Of Barotseland From Legislating For Their Country - Saleya Kwalombota

We are all proud of our country of Royal Barotseland and are all  waiting to witness  Barotseland's self-determination become true even in the face of the occupying country.   Zambia's militarizing of our territory is not acceptable and is an act of aggression. What is the purpose of United Nations? According to the U.N. Founding Charter (Article 1) — 1945 starts that, "One purpose of the United Nations is “to develop friendly relations among nations based on respect for the principle o...

Communique - Secretary of State for Legal Affairs Royal Barotseland Government

08th August, 2014 The Registrar of CourtsMungu Dear Sir/Madam, RE: COMMUNIQUE We the people of Barotseland do agree with Magistrate Julius Malata, that courts of Zambia can try foreigners who commit crimes against Zambia. What we don’t believe is the Zambian courts having authority to try foreign nationals who have committed crimes in their foreign territories. However, we are very much concerned that justice must prevail whether you try foreigners or your nationals. With regard to the ca...

Every Mondays and Fridays at 17:00hrs to 17:15hrs, let’s commit Barotseland in prayer. The Lozis in the Army and police working with our foes, you can say your prayers silently in your hearts. God has already answered our prayer so we need to thank him as much as we can.

By attempting or probably succeeding to bribe the Barotse Royal Establishment for it to reverse the 27th March 2012 Barotse National Council Resolutions, the Patriotic Front led Government is fighting a losing war that its leaders will live to regret.

The Zambian Government needs to understand that all that took place on 26th and 27th March 2012 in Barotseland was legal under international law. The resolutions arrived upon by the majority of  those present cannot be reversed at any time by any individual or clique of people. Not even a deed of fake development would pursued our people to go back into servitude.

Resolutions' Implications

Before the March 2012 Barotse National Council conference, the Barotse Royal Establishment wielded some kind of monopoly on the Barotseland issue. The passing of the resolutions was, in a greater sense, the passing of the button to any Barotse individual, activist group or Barotse masses to legally pursue the issue even to going as far as the International Court of Justice. Although we still need to work with BRE on this issue, the Barotse masses now also have legitimate authority to pursue and achieve independence since it is them who decided to go that way. Their decision was fully blessed by Barotseland's traditional leaders. We, therefore, cannot imagine a situation where the Barotse masses would turn around and surrender that responsibility.

Apart from persecuting Barotse activists and attempting to divide us the Zambian Government has failed to sensibly challenge our reasons for the stand we have taken with regard to our disengagement with Zambia. No acts of intimidation or any kind of subtle coercion will make us change our minds.

Further more, the BRE, under the Ngambela Clement Sinyinda, had sent a delegation to the Southern Africa Development Community Secretariat in Botswana some five months ago where the position of Barotseland was tabled. The United Nations as well as the British Government were, through their representatives in Zambia, notified of Barotseland's decision for independence. Credible investors are also now showing interest in doing business with Barotseland. On the other hand, much more has been done both within and outside Barotseland such that it would be fool hardy to even imagine any effect of a doctored reversal of the March 2012 BNC Resolutions. In the light of the foregoing, only those, within BRE, who would openly want to manifest themselves as hypocrites and sell outs would even entertain an idea of going against the people's decision for independence.The issue of the restoration of the Barotseland Agreement 1964 is long exhausted and cannot be revived in any realistic manner (unless in mandwani) because it was rendered irrelevant on 27th March 2012. There just cannot be any sensible basis upon which the defunct treaty, which was not even allowed to operate, could be revived. There is absolutely nothing to refer to apart from the fact that Barotseland had never agreed to be ruled by her child State Zambia.

Innocent Blood

It has to be remembered that 19 innocent Barotse souls were unlawfully killed by the State and no one has been held responsible for their deaths. We have those whose whereabouts remain unknown to this day and scores who were maimed for life and never compensated. Adding on to this is the yet unpublished findings of the Chongwe Commission of Inquiry into the Barotseland shootings.

If indeed the Barotse Royal Establishment has been bribed to betray the people they are purported to lead, then we may only conclude that it is for the purpose of covering up the 14 January 2011 cold blooded murders which they are alleged to have also encouraged. That innocent blood was not spilled in vain. No self serving individuals would ever manage to make us change our brave match towards freedom. Everything has been hurled at us both by the enemy and our own people but we keep matching on. It is the time that demands that we plod on. This is the moment for our freedom.

Conclusion

We already have found some friendly nations who support our position and the Zambian Government will do well not to waste its tax payers'  money to unwisely fund a lost cause. Barotseland has made her position known and bribing the BRE will not even be in the interest of peace loving and long suffering Zambian people.
