Barotseland Videos (19)
BAROTSELAND: Located between Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Angola, Barotseland is home to a unified group of diverse tribes.
Historically, the region used to be an independent nation, but was incorporated into Zambia in 1964.
Its current claim for independence comes from the idea that it was incorporated into Zambia under false pretenses, as the 1964 treaty between the two peoples had promised autonomy to Barotseland that it did not receive. Instead, Barotseland was just treated like any other province.

Zambian distinguished constitutional lawyer and 2015 presidential aspirant under the Forum for Democratic Alternatives (FDA), Dr. Ludwig Sondashi stunned his Zambian popular phoenix radio audience when he, in his capacity as a constitutional lawyer, sought to set the record straight over the controversial subject of the Barotseland Agreement 1964. Featuring on popular radio Phoenix show dubbed “Let the people talk” on Tuesday 9th December 2014, Dr. Sondashi advised in his submission that the matter of the Barotseland Agreement 1964 was straight forward, stating that Barotseland should not be treated the same way as the provinces of Zambia such as Northern, North-western, Eastern and all other provinces, as Barotseland, having been a former protectorate of Britain separate from Northern Rhodesia, agreed to join the latter to form the republic of Zambia by the specific terms of the Barotseland Agreement 1964.
