Today, Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week, a time in which we celebrate the life, passion, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord and Saviour.  Christ in the dying moments on the cross gives us the greatest illustration of forgiveness possible. As a gesture of good will towards the solution of Barotseland Agreement, I wish to make a passionate humble appeal to his Excellency, President Edgar Lungu, to release the Barotse activists incarcerated in prison. I made the same ...
As Barotseland pushes for total independence from Zambia, it is clear that the road will not be smooth as it has been with many countries and as such, we will draw a few lessons from countries and movements in the region that went through freedom struggle. In Southern Rhodesia, now Zimbabwe, the struggle took the path of armed struggle after peaceful means failed to yield positive results. The Zimbabwe bush war or second Chimurenga was fought from 4th July 1964 to 12th December 1979, a period ...
PEACEFUL INDEPENDENCE STRUGGLE; THE OVERVIEW OF BAROTSELAND INSIGNIA It has now clocked three years down the line from the time people of Barotseland declared independence on 27th March, 2012, during this period many things have taken place such as arrests , torture of the Activists, division of tribes on ethic lines by the occupying power, luring some activists to trade the independence resolutions for government job offers, oiling of the hands of some activists with Zambian money to work ...
A secrete operation under Zambia’s Ministry of Chiefs and Traditional Affairs to destabilize Barotseland and infiltrate the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) has been uncovered after a confidential report on the progress of what is termed ‘BRE 11’ assignment emerged. The confidential report, which was written by a Mr. Nachimwenda Edson of the Provincial Chiefs and Traditional Affairs office for Zambia’s western Province in Mongu and directed to provincial permanent secretary, Mr. Augustin ...
Mungu, Barotseland. The appeal case for jailed Barotseland National Youth League leaders Boris Muziba Muziba, Nayoto Mwenda and Sikwibele Wasilota came up for hearing this morning, and the trio were allowed to submit additional grounds for appeal, with the State requesting for a two weeks period in which to make their own submission to counter these grounds for appeal. As other times before, the atmosphere around the court arena was crowded with sympathizers who came in to give support to the ...
PREAMBLE The fundamental principle of democracy is the freedom of expression and right to affiliate or associate freely with any group or organization without violating the tenets of freedom. I hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men (women inclusive) are created equal before the law and have equal RIGHTS; and the fact that all HUMANITY is endowed by the Creator with the power of decision making, should be understood and embraced as UNITY in DIVERSITY. Allow me, therefore, to ...
In the latest turn of events surrounding the Barotseland Petition seized by African Commission on Human and Peoples Rights (ACHPR) of the African Union (AU), it has been learnt that the jittery Zambia government (GRZ) has pleaded for more time to respond to the petition, claiming that they have not seen the communication relating to the same. Consequently, at its 17th extra-ordinary session held from 19th to 28th February 2015, the Commission decided to grant the request and the secretariat of ...

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
