20th April, 2015 UPDATE OF THE NATION By Dr. Matengu SitumbekoActing Administrator GeneralRoyal Barotseland Government FELLOW COUNTRYMEN AND WOMEN I stand here today with joy looking at the progress we have made as a nation towards achieving our goal of self-rule. We have carefully taken firm steps that will reward the nation eternal happiness that we have missed for a long time, and we have also been strengthened by the consultations that we have made around the world a couple of ...
Incarcerated independence activists, musician and Barotseland National Youth League (BNYL) National Coordinator Sikwibele Wasilota (Skwiz) has been moved back to Sinanga prisons during the time when the Zambian Musician and sexual predator and convict 'General' Kanene was brought in Barotseland Kingdom by the Zambian Prisons Service for public performances, Gibson Sitamulaho of the Barotseland National Information Center in Mungu reports. However, the bringing of Kanene into Mungu and Kalabo ...
From Parentage of the Evangelical Church of Lesotho to the Calvary Treatment by the United Church Of Zambia, and its Broader Political, Economic and Social Context Although, I should by now be immune from manifestation of self-interestedor otherwise imposed ignorance, I am surprised by the total eclipse of knowledge over the history and even existence of the Church of Barotseland. Rather than roast in this shocking state of affairs, may I still attempt to throw some light on this aspect of ...
Hundreds of Barotse nationals were on Thursday April 23, 2015 gathered at the Barotse Royal Establishment Kuta, demanding the removal of some Indunas they accused of serving the interests of the occupying Zambian government. According to the petitioners, they had in their possession evidence to the effect that some present Namuso Indunas are working hand-in-hand with the occupying Zambian regime to continue suppressing the Kingdom of Barotseland statehood and self-rule as reflected by the ...
Some of you who are familiar with my point of views would probably remember me constantly advocate our need to oppose the spirit of “I” (disunity) supremacy all the time. To eliminate the spirit of “I” is to make a way for a solution to all the economic, social and political problems faced by the people of Barotseland today due to the aborted fifty year cohabitation with Zambia. Sadly some among us some may still dispute this premise. As a person whose efforts and heart have always been ...
The Zambian government has for the first time admitted that it has acquired hardware and software to block certain websites in Zambia. From 2012, the Zambian government has been blocking news websites critical of government but has been failing to block Facebook. But now the PF government has announced that it has acquired the relevant technology to block even Facebook. In 2012, the PF government blocked the Zambian Watchdog, Zambia Reports and Barotse Post (this publication). The ...
The Zambian government has been accused of pressuring the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) and the Litunga of Barotseland to support the bid to have the Barotse Plains (Barotse Cultural Landscape) as a world Heritage site, in spite of strong rejections of the nomination bid by a wide section of the Barotse people including the BRE last year. The UNESCO World Heritage Committee last year deferred its nomination of the Barotse Plains for inscription as a World Heritage Site because Zambia ...

The international media outfit PresTV has listed and named Barotseland among “Newest Emerging” nations of the world.

In their 20th December, 2012 article in which they accused “The corporate news media, acting on behalf of globalist contrivances like the European Union, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), the World Bank, and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), is turning up the heat against moves by emergent nations in Europe to seek independence,” they listed Barotseland as one of those new nations marching to join the world community carrying their own banners.

The article was written by the internationally acclaimed Wayne Madsen, who is a Washington, D.C.-based investigative journalist, author and columnist specializing in intelligence and international affairs.

He is the author of the blog Wayne Madsen Report and here below are some of the many intelligence reports he is credited with.

  • In 2002 Wayne suggested to the Guardian newspaper that the United States Navy had aided in an attempted overthrow of Venezuelan president, Hugo Chavez.
  • In 2003 Wayne said that he had uncovered information linking the September 11 attacks to the government of Saudi Arabia as well as to Bush administration.
  • In 2005, he wrote than an unidentified former CIA agent claimed that the USS Cole was actually hit by a Popeye cruise missile launched from an Israeli Dolphin-class submarine.

The list of emerging nations of the world named by Wayne included Europe’s Catalonia and Scotland. Others named and sited in the article are; West Papua, Casamance, Ambazonia, South Yemen, Oromia, Azawad, Kashmir, Aceh, and Bangsamoro.

Funny how i thought we have always been a Nation, but only stateless. People may celebrate this piece of news but the more correct rendering of historical facts ought to have been differently reported. We are a Re-Emerging Nation! May the international community know this that we as Barotseland have been a Nation since the 1600s and we have not kept it safe for over 400 years by chewing bubble gum! It is a good thing though that our struggle continues to reach more receptive ears in the international community. It is however of paramount importance that accurate information has to be disseminated lest they think we are merely a bunch of noise-making crack pots hell bent on destabilizing a hitherto thought previous monolithic and singular nation of Zambia which has always been one and indivisible and consequently the regional 'peace' at large. “These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated.”- Thomas Paine
