Following the Respondent State (Zambia) submissions requesting the African Commission on Human and People's Rights (ACHPR) to throw out Barotseland’s submissions in the Communication ACHPR/COMM/429/12/ZAM 'THE NGAMBELA OF BAROTSELAND AND OTHERS V. ZAMBIA', the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) have, through the office of the Ngambela, successfully submitted additional observations and comments on Zambia’s evasive response. The additional comments and observations, which have since been ...
Reports by social media network BBN of Mongu, Barotseland, reported yesterday that Zambia police forces have arrested a yet to be named man. The latest victim is a Linyungandambo member and Barotseland independence activist who stay in Mungu who the Zambia police believe to have ‘seditious material’ linked to the Barotseland independence advocate Linyungandambo. According to police sources, documents in question say that BAROTSELAND IS A STATE. After arresting and interrogating the suspect, ...
By now we are confident that the relevant legal authorities have attended to and submitted their legal observations on Zambia’s submission to the African Commission of Human and Peoples Rights (ACHRP) the case; THE NGAMBELA OF BAROTSELAND & OTHERS VS THE REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA However, here below, is my understanding, OBSERVATIONS AND MATERIAL IN ANSWER TO SUBMISSIONS OF REPUBLIC OF ZAMBIA ON ADMISSIBILITY 1.

Mongu’s Oblate Radio Liseli celebrated its 10th anniversary over the weekend (12th June 2015) at a colorful ceremony that brought together several stakeholders including MISA Zambia Chairperson Hellen Mwale and national director, Austin Kayanda. Also present to witness the commemoration were notable dignitaries such as the Litunga of Barosteland, the Bishop of Mongu His Lordship Bishop Evans Chinyama Chinyemba and the Western Province Permanent Secretary Mr. Mwangala Liomba. Addressing the ...
More questions have arisen on why we do not just CLAIM the current entity called ‘Western Province’ of Zambia. “Surely it would be easier to claim that (western province) and maybe the Zambian government would more easily release it to you, SELFISH Lozis, rather than this greedy demand for BUTOKA and BULOVALE,” argued someone, followed by the usual unprintables we are now so accustomed to receiving. POINTS OF NOTE. Barotseland is NOT breaking away from Zambia. It is merely REVERTING to her ...
To declare independence of any territory, it must be expressly determined the extent of the territory under CLAIM, without any ambiguity. Thus; the interim Barotseland government’s letter of legal suits to the Zambian government quoted the 2012 Barotseland Emancipation Act and Restoration Order 2012, part 1 article 1.2 which states the following on the boundaries of Barotseland currently under CLAIM: "The National territory of the Kingdom of Barotseland in the meantime shall consist of the ...
A Barotse National Council (BNC) is the climax of a national decision making process in Barotse governance whose decisions reign supreme, and will remain binding on all institutions and peoples of Barotseland. It has no meeting schedule but only called upon when a critical national decision must be made by the entire Barotse nation, similar to a national referendum. It is the most representative, most inclusive and most decisive. It involves every tribe, chief, man and woman at village, ...

The reported Barotse freedom Alliance headed by Gen. C. W. Sinyinda is not a newly formed group in the struggle for the independence of Barotseland, but it is simply the main umbrella of the existing freedom movements, namely Barotse freedom movement (BFM), Barotse Intelligence and secrecy service (BI) and Movement for Restoration of Barotseland (MOREBA).

However the Alliance is not a newly formed movement and it is not a new entrant in the struggle. The Alliance is an umbrella of the freedom movements, whose agenda is carry and enforce the wish and decisions of the people of Barotseland.

Bulozinahayalun a i know who you are so do not hide in the name of bulozinahayalun a just come out in the open so that pipo can know who really you are, why hide yourself to me it means you are a coward. Do not forget that you are one of the pipo (cowards) who backed out of the shadow cabinet in 2011 and you went further to insult His Excellency RT.Hon. Afumba Mombotwa on both electronic & print media so don't annoy and insult the intelligence of we the Barotzish. As for sinyinda you are busy praising today was he not one of those pipo who was serving in the Zambian government when their security forces went to the Royal Barotseland Kingdom and massacred unarmed Barotzish mostly the youths so you annoy me the most and i feel like vomiting whenever you mention the name of anyone who served in the Zambian government at the time their security forces massacred our brothers and sisters. Therefore, pliz stop annoying and insulting us!!

Just look at Palestine. Every struggle has a journey. At one point in Zambia there was not even a freedom movement. Now there are many. At one point the issue of Barotseland was reduced to ngomalume, now we have matyrs who died on January 11. At one point there was only the newspapers of northern rhodesia which censured any news on Barotseland. Now we have our Barotse Post. The first organised liberation movement used pamphlets in the 1990s and printed them under secrecy as activists could be arrested when found doing this, now there is the internet. In the beginning we jusr used to listen to people. Now we have radio Barotseland. This is just natural in any revolution. There will be common ground eventually. Don't be discouraged brothers and sisters, one day freedom will come. Iron ore has to go through fire before it is pure iron. Just wait and see. Thanks you Barotse Post! Thanks Radio Barotseland! Kulula independence 2014!

It seems we have exhausted the old front of shadowy liberation movements vs the BRE and the Litunga. We seem to be opening up another front of old shadowy groups vs new shadowy groups; lets see how this pans out. The previous fued did churn out some viciuos acrimony. The amount of abuse hurled at the BRE and the Litunga has almost certainly done permanent damage to these 2 institutions. We now await how far daggers will be thrust in the latest intra dispute of the fictious rotse nation. What the rest can learn from all of this is that, do people still think such divided groups cdan ever exist as a peaceful nation. Never! bitter conflict and struggle could be the order of the day.

If Mr Sinyinda wanted unity he should have joined Linyungandambo. This would have made better sense than to try to re-invent the wheel. But he couldn't do this because he doesn't agree with their ideology. Then how is an alliance supposed to be possible under such circumstances? I don't want to accuse him of anything but one cannot help but wonder what his true motives are.

@bulozinahayalu na. No one is against Mr Sinyinda forming his freedom movement. It is the claim that his freedom movement consists of all the Barotseland freedom movements which is not true. In the first place Mr Sinyinda doesn't agree with Linyungandambo and BNYL in the approach that should be used to address the matter of Barotseland freedom. Secondly, BFA doesn't have a written manifesto which tell clearly what the objectives and aims of the organisation are. Thirdly, alliances can not be unilateral. People must meet and agree to form an alliance. You don't just wake up and say u have an alliance with someone with whom u don't agree and never met to form that alliance. So, please lets not bring unnecessary confusion. Let Mr Sinyinda form his BFA, but let him not claim that all the other groups fall under his movement because this is not true. We respected him as the Ngambela of Barotseland but this does not mean that he can come from no where and bulldoze everybody into his organisation as if those people don't know anything. This is disrespectful to others who have been working all along even when Mr Sinyinda was in the MMD government. Let us have respect for others.

We should not be greedy to think that barotse freedom activism belongs to one group. anyone who can call people like mr sinyinda a new entrant are either sick or need counselling.
mr sinyinda is the right man to lead a united front. he already knows how far the whole issue is. we should not be deceived that independece is already there. what we have so far is what has been achieved by mr sinyinda on behalf of bre. now lets give him, and the other colegues move foward as activists.

Bo Muyunda Makala thank you very much to here from you. But you people are very late, so i would advise that you meanwhile let Linyungandombo omplete the journey for us and later if you people can then go ahead with your plan of contesting for the higher office in barotseland. we already know the plan Hor. Sinyinda has.
