The planned Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) dialogue with the Government of the Republic of Zambia (GRZ) on the defunct Barotseland Agreement 1964 would be applauded if it were not merely another installment of the now familiar Zambian treachery aimed at pacifying the ongoing demands for Barotseland independence. Sadly, some Barotse people are falling for their deception once again.

We are like a herd of cattle trapped in a thorny fenced kraal.

We previously grazed freely until sometime in 1964 when the previous neighboring farmer, Kadansa, sweet talked us into gathering in a Bantustan Kraal.

We stampede around searching for an opening only to gather at the same spot we started from.

The kraal is hedgy and will only bruise us badly if we attempt to break free.

INTRODUCTION

The month of February is one of the famous months in the yearly calendar of Royal Barotseland Monarchy due to the precious history it bears for the current citizens and posterity of the nation and Kingdom. One such good reason is that from the royal reign progressions of the Barotseland Litungas from antiquity to date three of the Litungas, bearing the name Lewanika as namesakes, interestingly, share the month of February as either a birthday or deathday month, with King Mbikusita Lewanika II having been born on 03/02/1905 and died in the same month of February 07/02/1977.
