By Sibeta Mundia It has often been argued and debated whether or not Barotseland existed as a sovereign nation state before Northern Rhodesia’s independence in 1964. To answer this question we could look at the Montevideo Convention on Statehood of 1933 which sets out several requirements for Statehood. The prevailing law at the time, viewed ‘States’ as a kind of sui generis legal entity operating and existing under its own authority and power. Thus the criteria of the convention are: (1) A ...

By Saleya Kwalombota BAROTSELAND PERSPECTIVE From the facts on the ground, many of us are aware of the importance of the 27th March of 2012. There is no way we could miss how important the date is to us the citizens of the great territory of Barotseland. But while they are some still in the valley of indecision and don’t fully grasp the concept of Independence declaration. We have to understand the importance of the Declaration of Independence Barotseland issued in 2012 and the important ...
By Mutungulu Wanga, BNFA.INFO The admission of Barotseland to UNPO membership not only puts an international perspective to the territory’s struggle for statehood through UNPO’s connection with the European Parliament and the United Nations, but also places a demand on the people of Barotseland to modernize and speed-up institutional reforms and structures to a level somewhat comparable with nations from whom support for Barotseland statehood will flow. Following admission to Unrepresented ...
By Saleya Kwalombota 1. The Declaration of Independence wasn’t signed on July 4, 1776. The Second Continental Congress met in Philadelphia on July 1, 1776 and voted in favor of Richard Henry Lee’s motion for independence. After a two to three days length of debating and revising the language of a statement drafted by Thomas Jefferson. On July 4, Congress officially adopted the Declaration of Independence, and as a result the date is celebrated as Independence Day. 2. After the adoption of ...

By Saleya Kwalombota The right to self-determination has a wide scope. In a cultural sense it covers the right to speak one’s language, to profess one’s religion, to celebrate one’s culture. The right to self-determination also has a political aspect, where a people or nation may have the right to have its own political parties, and have a form of political autonomy. The most known form of self-determination and the most far reaching is the right to secede from a state in order to form own ...
The incarcerated and Zambia treason accused Barotseland Administrator General Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa has charged that he and his three co-accused were moved forcefully under false pretenses by what he termed "negative forces" from Mwembeshi to kabwe’s Mukobeko, Zambia’s most notorious and only prison for those condemned to death. "We want to make it known that Zambia stands for no peaceful approach towards the Barotseland impasse and the Barotzish must be aware of the negative forces behind ...

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
