In a clear act of desperation and sheer cowardice, the Zambian government has now decided to block Local Access to both Barotsepost.com and RadioBarotseland.com
We, therefore, wish to advise that online access to both www.barotsepost.com as well as www.radiobarotseland.com has been blocked from within the geographical boundaries of both Zambia and Barotseland.
Therefore, anyone from within these two geographical regions trying to access our two web sites should use PROXY Avoidance web sites or software to be able to access the two web sites.
However, our news updates can still be accessed via the following Facebook and twitter accounts:
Face Book Pages: (You don’t have to ‘Like’ any of these pages to read, but if you do ‘Like’ any of the pages our news will be automatically be delivered to your Facebook wall.)
The Government of Zambia has become notoriously repressive on dissenting and opposing views, and have been blocking national access to web sites critical of their deteriorating poor governance record and those of the opposition political parties. Currently the Zambian Watchdog and Zambia Reports web sites critical of their bad governance have been blocked from within Zambia, while arresting any journalist suspected to be writing for these web sites.
Meanwhile, Zambia police forces picked up three Barotse nationals in Livingston on Sunday for being in possession of news articles they allegedly downloaded from www.barotsepost.com . The three were immediately taken into police custody and upon interrogation one was set free while two were transported to Mongu Central police over seditious or possibly treasonous charges.
The two transferred to Mongu are a Mr. Akakandelwa Erick and a Pastor Matongo, while Mr. Muyunda was released.
Please, spread the above information to your friends, relatives, co- leagues, neighbors and anyone who cares to know.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers.
