Dear Editor,

Please publish this as my warning to UPND youths as well as a reminder to every Murotse. Thanks you.

"I am sorry but the UPND Youths are proving a to be bunch of useless buffoons that have for more than four terms failed to make government in their country, Zambia. Why do you want to hoodwink the public into believing that Barotseland is part of your country and go to the extent of buying poor taxi drivers and claim a 'thunderous welcome' shame on you.

The editor,
Barotse Post,
Mongu,

Greetings to you all.

Thanks a lot for your article on the subject referred above. Please find herein my submission regarding the topic.

First and foremost I still find this insolence of Zambia indeed and quite nerve-wracking. As things stand now it is useless for Zambia to talk about the matter on our behalf because of the following observations:

What is World Heritage?

World Heritage is the designation for places on Earth that are of outstanding universal value to humanity and as such, have been inscribed on the World Heritage List to be protected for future generations to appreciate and enjoy.

Kindly allow me space in our Barotsepost to air my views.

Malozi shaa, this move of enlisting the Barotse Plains as a world heritage site is simply nonsensical and very much ill-conceived. It does not sit well with me at all and I believe, this is or may be the case with many well-meaning descendants of Barotseland. It will not, in anyway, add value to what we are doing for ourselves already and let alone, to the beautiful libala la Bulozi.

What does it mean for a site to be inscribed on the List?

Once a country signs the Convention, and has sites inscribed on the World Heritage List, the resulting prestige often helps raise awareness among citizens and governments for heritage preservation.

The reasons being advanced are baseless and simply reflect cheap politicking. The agitating factor is the independence of our Barotseland (already attained by the way). These guys from N. Rhodesia do not mean any good at all. They should find places to enlist in their areas of origin and not in our country. Seriously, it has nothing to do with burial sites (litino) of the Lozi kings and queens. This whole thing is an affront to the people of Barotseland. We will get ourselves in a quagmire. Come to think of it, it is synonmous to selling one's birth right.
