The Barotse National Council (BNC) held on the 26th and 27th of March 2012, representing the Barotse people at a village, Branch, Ward, District and Provincial levels arrived at a position that Barotseland be separated from Zambia and, thus, free to pursue its own self-determination and destiny. That action was arrived at as a consequence of Zambia's repudiation of the Barotseland Agreement 1964.
In the process of actualizing its intents and purposes, the BNC took cognizance of the importance of the United Nations in international politics and conflicts. In doing so, they among others, resolved that:
• The Barotse Government should, within 30 days request the UN to oversee the transition in process.
• We mandate the Barotse Government to immediately to engage the Zambian Government with the sole purpose of working out the transitional arrangements towards self-determination for Barotseland within the shortest possible time under the auspices of the United Nations.
