Zambia’s Minister of Information and government's official spokesperson, Chishimba Kambwili, has rebuked the 'Nkoya' Royal council’s David Tamboka for alleging that the Zambian government did not consider Nkoyas for any government positions.

The Nkoya faction that has been used as a tool to destabilize Barotseland by the Zambian government has attacked its sponsors by accusing Zambian President Edgar Lungu of being ‘a Lozi tribalist.’

Nkoya ‘Royal Council’ (a creation of the Zambian government) Chairperson David Tamboka claimed that the Zambian government was siding with one ethnic group which he said was dividing the region.

Tamboka said the Zambian government should reserve some positions for Nkoyas so that they also have representatives in the governance system and complained that every new government left the Nkoyas out of governance.

He said Nkoyas would soon seek audience with government so that they actively participate in governance of the country and warned that if government did not listen to them they would demonstrate against people appointed by the Zambian government to serve in Kaoma.

The Nkoya constitute only 16 percent of the population of Kaoma which is comprised of Luyis, Kaondes, Luvales, Mbundas and Chokwes but have always accused a nonexistent tribe they call 'Lozi' of undermining them. Lozi is not a tribe but a language (Lingua franca) spoken by all ethnic groups of Barotseland.

But the chief government spokesperson for the Zambian government Chishimba Kambwili has expressed disappointment at the remarks by Tamboka.

Kambwili said on Wednesday, 4th 2015, that Tamboka’s tribal statement can cause disunity in the country adding that government cannot reserve positions for one tribe.

The Zambian government has for a long time been using certain Nkoya individuals to destabilize Barotseland by promoting ethnic tension and sponsored the creation of the so called 'Nkoya Royal Council' which is now attacking them.

The Nkoya sentiments appeared in the Daily Nation newspaper edition of Wednesday 04th March 2015.

Muziba, Nayoto and Sikwebele were today brought to Mongu high court by prison officers, to an enthusiastic warm Barotseland greeting from many of their supporters who had come to attend their appeal case take off today. However, they were not brought into the maim court room because their appeal case was moved to 11th of March 2015. As such, upon arrival at the courts, the trio was kept in waiting cells. Many people, however, were able to greet them, and as they were taken back out of the court grounds, people and supporters sang the Barotseland national anthem, ‘Bulozi fasi Labondata luna’ among other solidarity songs.

The three are currently serving jail sentences of three years each with hard labour for “publication of false news with intent to cause fear or alarm to the public contrary to the laws of Zambia” a case they have since appealed against.

A female judge yet to be named has been assigned this case, as trial starts next week on Wednesday, the 11th of March 2015.

TUMELELANO YA BULOZI YA 1964:

7. Tumelelano ya Bulozi i na ni makepe a keta-lizoho feela, kungelela cwalo ni a ng’ambekelo. Lu ng’omela katiso yeo kwa ling’olo le ka ku lika kufa sikuka. Mwa Tumelelano ye ku fumanwa ahulu litaka ze: “Ni h’a”, ze bonahala ka ku supeza mulelo wa Tumelelano ka cwalo:-

KU TULWA, KU LOBWA NI KU MBWANJINGELWA KWA TUMELELANO YA BULOZI KI MUUSO WA ZAMBIA:

11. Tumelelano ya Bulozi ha i baliwa ka litaba za simuluho tota, yomung’wi ukona ku ba ni maikuto mane ni ku tiiseza buniti bwa mulelo-tuna wa kozo ni kutwano on’o ka tusa kwa ku pilisana amoho. Ha ne ku ka zwelwapili cwalo ka moya wa lilato ni kutwano ono kulubelwa, lifapahani za kaceku ne li si ke za ba teng’i. Ni ha kuli cwalo, ku bonahalile fo ku sweu kuli Muuso wa Zambia ne usina mulelo wa swalisano ni ku kuteka lisepiso za ona fa halimu a ba Bulozi kamba ba si-British;

12. Ka bumai, Muuso wa Zambia wanga mihato ye situhu ya ku luba-luba Tumelelano ku itokwisa ni butokwa bwa ku hatisiwa fa pampili fo ne i hatisizwe, ku zwa kwa makalelo;

13. Sapili, Tumelelano ye ne i si ka hatisiwa kamba ku tiisezwa ki Muuso wa Zambia ka mo ne ku sepiselizwe banyateli ba ba ng’wi ba Tumelelano ye kwa London. Ka 1965, Kaunda a loba Tumelelano ka ku tahisa cinceho kwa Mutomo wa Zambia. Mulao wa kamaiso ya Milonganyana wa tumuswa ka ku lika ku felisa Mulao wa Kamaiso ya Muuso wa Bulozi ya Miloganyana (Barotseland Native Authority Ordinance) ka mulelo wa ku fukuza maata a Litunga ni ku felisa cwalo Katengo ka Mulonga wa Bulozi ku ba feela sisusa. Ka be muhato wo ne una ni kemelo ya Mulao, mulelo-tuna wa muhato wo ne ili ku lika ku felisa maata a Litunga a kamaiso ya Muuso wa Bulozi ni Milonganyana ili kuli Litunga ni Katengo ka Mulonga mwa Bulozi ba be feela lisusa;

14. Ka 1969 Muuso wa Zambia wa tumusa licinceho za Mulao wa bu ketalizoho kwa Mutomo wa ona (Constitutional Amendment Act No_ 5). Kaunda a laela kuli Tumelelano ya Bulozi ya 1964 ifelisiwe, amoho cwalo ni liswanelo kamukana ze iputezi-teng’i. Ni h’a likezo ze situhu zeo, ha li nyakisiswa ka mabaka a ka fitiswa asamulahonyana, ne li ezizwe ka b’omu isi ka Mulao, ka mulelo wa ku mbwanjingela kamba ku luba-luba feela Tumelelano kwa lineku la Muuso wa Zambia, asamulaho a lilimo ze ketalizoho feela kuzwa fo i nyatelelwa, mutu ukona ku lemuha ni ku tiiseza kuli ni h’a Muuso wa Zambia ne u nyatezi Tumelelano ye, ne u sina mulelo wa bu sepahali wa ku ikuteka. Ne u inyatezi feela ka ku lika ku tabisa Muuso wa si British ni kuli u kone feela ku fumana kolo ya ku hapa Bulozi ni Batu ba bona ba ba eza bo lule ba balalu ni licika (3 ½ million people);

15. Isali ka silimo sa 1969, Muuso wa Zambia wa ekeza kwa milelo ye situhu ka ku tahisa cinceho kwa Mutomo wa ona ka ku cinca Mulao wa Mikoti ni Milafo (Mines and Minerals Act) o ne u lelezwi ku felisa maata a Litunga fahalimw’a kamaiso ya Mikoti ni Milafo zeo ne li bulukezwi yena ni sicaba sa hae kuzwa kwa linako za kwa mulaho.Haili Tumelelano ya Bulozi i kuzize fa litaba za Mikoti ni Milafo. Ni ha kuli cwalo, liswanelo za Litunga ka litaba ze, li simuluha mwa Litumelelano za pili-pili ni ba British South Africa Company za kwa lilimo za bo 1880 ni 1890 cwalo. Kuzwa ku ba BSAC Liswanelo kamukana za Mikoti ni Milafo ze ne li mwa maata a Litunga za tambekiwa kwa Muuso wa United Kingdom ka ku ba ona one u li mu babaleli. Kuzwa teng’i, hakuna mukwa wo liswanelo ze ne li ta ipumana mwa lipokoto za Muuso wa Zambia sina ka mo ku inezi kaceku, ka bumai. Ku zusiwa kwa Liswanelo ze ne kuli ya yeng’wi ya milelo ye situhu ya Kamaiso ya Kaunda ni mufumbo wa hae wa ku paleliswa Bulozi ku ipusa sina ka Tumelelano;

16. Asamulaho a silimo, ka 1970, Muuso wa tahisa cinceho yeng’wi hape kwa Mutomo wa Naha (Constitutional Amendment) ye ne fa Mweteleli wa Naha Maata a ipitezi fa lifa la Naha mwa tasi a kamaiso ya hae. Mwa ku sebelisa maata a cwalo, a n’a lelezwi Bulozi, Mweteleli wa Naha Zambia na shimbuluzi lifa la Bulozi kungelela cwalo ni Pulukelo ya sikwama sa Bulozi (Barotse Native Treasury) se ne si fita ku bo lule ba ba supile ka ba ketalizoho ka ba balalu ni licika la Lipondo za si British (£78,500,000.00 ‘British sterling Pounds’) se ne si tatauzwi ka busholi, kusina ni ha i ke maswabi, ki puso ya Kaunda ka maata a tula tikanyo a na ipile ona fa halimu a Bulozi, ku siya bayahi ba Bulozi ba imbwetukezi mi ba sina ni tuso kamba maata kamba bu ikalabelo ni bo bu kana. Ha ku luni ku talusa kuli Tumelelano ye ne ibeile pabalelo ya pulukelo ya sikwama sa Bulozi (Barotse Native Treasury) ku Litunga ni Katengo ka Mulonga wa Bulozi;

17. Mwa milelo ya ona ya ku fukuza sicaba sa Malozi ni ku felisa Bulozi, isali ka 1970, Muuso wa Zambia wa ipeela Mulao ni ku cinca libizo la Bulozi ku bu shumwelela lishendo le ne li hanilwe ki bang’i ba Naha, la ‘Wiko-wa-Zambia’ (Western Province) isi ka Mulao. Zeo ne li eziwa ka taelo ya Kaunda ka ku ba Mweteleli, mwa tumuso ya hae ya n’a bizize “Ni lakaza ku lemusa Naha” (I wish to inform the Nation). Muhato wo ne u bonisize milelo ye situhu-tuna yeo Muuso wa Kaunda ne u bile ni ona fa Tumelelano ya Bulozi ni sicaba sa Bulozi cwalo;

18. Tumelelano ya Bulozi i si ka be ya ba teng’i Bulozi ne bu si ka be bwa hapiwa kuzwa kwa miteng’i ya kwa mulaho. Ba Bulozi ba ti lo ipumani mwa buzike mwa Naha ya bona ka likezo za Muuso wa Zambia ko ne ba lukela ku fumana lituso si na ka mo se ku taluselizwe kwa mulaho. Bulozi bwa siyala bu sina sepo, zwelopili, lituso, kemelo hande ni silelezo yeo ne bu sepisizwe ka buzwale ni ka mulelo wa ku pilisana amoho ka kozo. Ne bu bile mwa buhapiwa bo bunca (Neo-colonialism) mwa Africa ka Bayahi ba Africa kwa Bayahi ba bang’wi ba Africa;

MAYEMO A MULAO KA TUMELALANO YA BULOZI KA KU TULWA, KU LOBWA NI KU MBWANJINGELWA KWA YONA:

Ka Mulao wa Licaba

19. Ku na ni nto iling’wi ya tatululo ya Mulao tota ka Tumelelano ya Bulozi. Silama ni silama sa yona, bao ne ba ipondile ku yona, ze iputezi-teng’i, mukwa ka mo ne i bupezwi, mulelo mane ni butungi bwa litaba za yona za itoka kuli, ka si konkwani sa Mulao, ki Tumelelano ya Licaba, mi hakuna mukwa ni omukana m’o ikona ku futulelwa;

20. Ka ku ba Tumelelano ya Licaba, ne ilukela ku latelelwa ka litaelo za ba Licaba ni Sizo sa Mulao wa ba Licaba ka kuli, ba ba ipondile ku yona ne ba tamehile ku peta misebezi ye ne ba itamile ka yona. Ne ba s’a lukeli ku ica matilikuba kamba ku mbilingana inge kuli Tumelelano ye ne ili siyo, sina m’o Muuso wa Zambia u i timeliselize mitala mane inge kuli Tumelelano ye ne ili siyo kamba ha u izibi.Tukelo ya ba Licaba ni ze tokwahala kamukana linga litaba ze ku ba ze fitelela litaba za mwa hae kamba Mulao wa mwa hal’a Naha;

21. Lu boni hande li kakalezo, ka mikwa ye bonahalile ha ku kupiwa maikuto a Muuso wa Zambia ka mayemo a ling’olo le kuli, mafosisa kamukana na ezwa ka ku ya ka Milao ye bupilwe ki Zambia. Ni ha kuli cwalo, kang’i-tuna i iputezi fa Mutomo wa Mulao wa ba Licaba oli, lineku lililing’wi ha li koni ku itinga fa Milao ya lona ku ba tebe ye li paleliswa ku latelela kamba ku taleleza Tumelelano. Ki nto ye zibahala kuli ba Licaba ni Sizo sa Mulao wa ba Licaba li kona ku ba mwa kozi ya ku palelwa kamaiso haiba Naha ikona ku lumelelwa ku itenga mwa Tumelelano ni Naha kamba Linaha zeng’wi, ye tokwa kuli litukiso ze lumelelanwi kazona li petiwe, i palelwe kabomu ku eza cwalo ka ku beya Milao ya Naha ya yona ka mulelo wa ku ipaleliswa ku zwelapili, sina ka mafosisa a kamaiso ya Kaunda mwa taba mo, ka ku laela kuli Tumelelano i felisizwe. Ba Licaba ni Sizo sa Mulao wa ba Licaba ba lemuhile buniti bo isali kwa makalelo mi Mutomo wa bona u tomilwe fa Mulao wa ba Licaba.I ka swana ya ba kuli ha lu zibi, ka cwalo ha lu hani kamba ku lumela-kuli lika kamukana ze lwanisa Tumelelano ye li bakanyizwe ka Milao ya Naha ya Zambia. Ni ha kuli cwalo, kakuli lu talimani ni Litumelelano za ba Licaba sihulu maswabisa a ku lika ku loba Mulao isi ka tumelelano ni ku ifelisa, ka ku itingeta fa Mulao wa Naha ya Zambia, ki lishano mi ha i na mayemo kamba tuso;

22. Lu tongozi maipato a Muuso wa Zambia a ku loba Mulao, ku sina butata ni bo bukana. Ni ha kuli cwalo, ka kuli Kaunda ki yena mukunupi, ku ya ka buino bwa Zambia miteng’i yeo, li ka ze ha li si ka baliwa, ka kuli, Bulozi ne bu sina kolo ni ye kana ya ku kanana ka yona. Ne bu na ni ku ulumana ona cwalo ka mo ne bu konela kamukana ni ha ne bunze bu utwa butuku cwalo. Naha ya Bulozi ne inze itotobela habutuku, kono inge i kungulezwi kwa tuko ka bu bangoki. Mi yeo ki yona nto ya ibona Mutu ha potela Bulozi kacenu;

23. Tumelo yetwi, Naha ha ikoni ku otolola Milao ya yona, ka mulelo wa ku li i fumane teng’i maipato, u fukulizwe ki kauhanyo ya bu mashumi amabeli ka ya busupa ya Bu-itamo bwa Mukopano wa Vienna (Article 26 of the Vienna Convention) ku amana ni Milao ya li Tumelelano. Buitamo bo ne bu hatisizwe ka lizazi la bu mashumi amabeli ka amalalu mwa kweli ya Kandao (23rd May), ka silimo sa 1969 mi Mutompehi Lishomwa Muukwa ki ya n’a yemezi Zambia ku nyatela Bu-itamo ka lona lizazi leo;
24. Bu i kalabelo bo bu tuna kwa milelo ya Milao kamukana ye ne lelezwi ku tandanisa Tumelelano ya Bulozi ki bo butwi: Tumelelano ya Bulozi ifelisiwe- ka ku cincwa kwa Mulao wa Mutomo wa bu ketalizoho wa 1969 (Amendment Act No_ 5), asamulaho a likweli feela ze ketalizoho kuzwa Zambia inyatela Bu-itamo bwa ba Licaba bo Mukopano wo ne u hanisize mikwa ya situhu ye amana ni ku sa kuteka Liswanelo za Butu;

25. Ha ku se ku nyakisizwe Tumelelano ya Bulozi ka Milao ya ba Licaba, lu ka swana lwa inga kuba Tumelelano ye bubebe ye eziwa feela ki likwata zetalu. Kono buniti ki kuli, Mutu ha koni ku felisa Tumelelano inge a zwelapili ku ikola liswanelo za Tumelelano yeo a felisize;

26. Tumelelano ha se ifitile fa ku pala ku hatisiwa ka ku lobiwa ki Muuso wa Zambia asamulaho wa ku hatisa Mulao wa Milonganyana wa 1965 (Local Government Act of 1965), ka mo ne ku bezi hape kwa tahiso ya Mulao wa Mikoti ni Milafo wa 1969 (Mines and Minerala Act of 1969), ni kwa ku shimbuliwa kwa Pulukelo ya Sikwama sa Bulozi (Barotse Native Treasury ) ka 1969, ni mo ne ku bezi kwa ku palelwa kwa Zambia ku neula lituso za sikwama ni ku bona kuli Milao ya Zambia ha i lwanisi Tumelelano, mukoloko u kona ku zwelapili, Silikani ni sona ne si lukela ku fita fa ku fela.

9th February, 2015

Office of the Head of State: His Majesty the King of Barotseland;
Office of the Administrator General: Royal Barotseland Government;
Secretaries and Under Secretaries of State: Royal Barotseland Government;
The Secretary: Royal Barotseland National Youth and Sports Council;
All Secretaries: Regional, District and County Youth and Sports Councils

Royal Barotseland Kingdom.

KEEPING THE FLAME OF YOUTH DEVELOPMENT AND ROYAL BAROTSELAND LIBERTY ALIGHT!

The Department of Youth and Sport is earnestly appealing to all the established, formed or created Youth Development structures, Organizations or Institutions- from the County to the National level- to set sail and to continue putting in place what is expected of them to be put in place now that the Department has concluded the ‘Operational Management Act of 2014’ and its plans for the ‘Integrated Youth Development Programme’ alongside other National legislature required for Statehood.(http://barotsepost.com/images/important_barotse_documents/rbg_youth_and_sports_development _act_2014.pdf) We should prepare for the mammoth task of preparing our National Teams, Federations, Associations and Clubs for various sports and disciplines and other Recreational and Youth Development Activities for the benefit of the Nation and the purpose of making our Youths responsible and productive Citizens, which is ahead of us, now!

I wish to retrace and re-emphasize my earlier appeal to the Barotzish Citizens, the Youths especially, which I had conveyed through the Royal Barotseland Kingdom’s National Youth and Sports meeting held at Mungu in the Lyondo Region, then, in June, 2014. I earnestly wish to remind you, once more, to stand firm and to retrace the pace which we have set for the reconstruction of our Motherland, now that we are about to retrieve our ship from the Phantoms and pirates who had seized it and made us captives for about half a century and, are about to dock.

We should prove to the Neo-Colonialist forces which marshaled the crusade for the extinction of the Malozi that we are a humble and formidable but peaceful force to reckon with which is very much capable of running its own National Affairs in accordance with its own Barotzish designed and tailored Development Agenda set for the reconstruction of our one and only God-given Motherland: the Royal Barotseland Kingdom! We should not be swayed by the make-shift colonial power’s fake Development programs made in bad faith which are merely intended to appease us momentarily, nor should we be distracted by some former politicians who failed to represent us, the people of the Royal Barotseland, effectively and efficiently to have missed their golden opportunity because of their insatiable love for the Neo-colonialist’s dirty pieces of silver and belief that they could not live without the oppressor or colonizer, like a virus! We should not be the least confused by confused personalities who, like scavengers, stealthily tracking  a hunter or lonely hunting Lion to pounce on the kill at the slightest opportunity, after a kill, claiming what they have not killed or toiled for. These people are cunning due to being intoxicated by and sunken into immense personal selfish interests enough to threaten the integrity and dignity of our Monarch. They have even set ultimatums for the oppressor to leave Barotseland, which they have so calculated in anticipation of coinciding with the Barotseland Legal Team’s progression of the ICJ verdict in order to confuse loyal Barotzish Citizens so as to claim that it is them who may have made Zambia move its authority from Barotseland. Shamefully enough, the Zambian so-called Clergy even congregate to pray for the continued sufferings of Barotseland against the will of the God they feign worshiping to for help!

We should stand our ground and be firm to preserve, protect, defend and honour the integrity, dignity and honour of our sacred Institutions such as the God-given Monarch, the Privy Council, the Royal Authority, the legitimate Afumba-led Government and the people of the Royal Barotseland Kingdom whom the elements of destruction yearn to divide, at all costs. Our Kutas must also desist from antagonism. They should preach collective participation and responsibility of ‘Costa Nostra’ alongside the legitimate visionary Leadership and Government, in good faith, in order to maintain and preserve their respect and honour which some failed former political leaders threaten, but which the Afumba-led Government has vowed to forever accord them and protect.

We should also shame the man who inflicted divisive excruciating pain, misery, sufferings and evil upon the innocent Malozi,  as we wish him long life to see the end of the misery he inflicted upon an innocent and honest people by his ‘divide and rule Big man’s syndrome’ under the pretext of ‘Above Board’ One Party  Undemocratic Governance. That mean man to whom whoever was opposed to his opinion was a ‘Stupid Idiot’. . . . . . The Man who paraded himself as an ‘Anointed Holy Angel of God and Messenger of Peace, Love and Tranquility while being evil. . . . . the tyrant  who was law himself and whose opinion became law.

Dear compatriots, let us mount courage and build our Nation in the way we know we would want it to be because it is us, and only us, who know how we would want our Nation to be, and how we can reconstruct the one and only Motherland we call home: the Royal Barotseland Kingdom. The Lord is wonderful and has always been wonderful to us! He has made the race not only to the swift, nor the battle only to the strong. Neither has He provided bread to only the wise, nor riches to only the men of understanding, nor favour to only the skilled but, He has made time and chances happen to us all though at different times and in different forms and ways. However, all in all, time and chances still come to all! We are a State capable of running our own affairs, henceforth; we should commence or continue with our tasks, from where we left, vigorously, towards the implementation of the National Youth Skills and Sports Development Programmes!

Let’s ‘keep the flame of liberty alight’ as we pray, solicit and lobby the International Community  and Global Organizations for their prompt intervention with regards the unconditional release of our gallant Leaders incarcerated by the Neo-Colonialist Regime for intimidating purposes and deliberate denial and delay of our liberty, which must come!

Under Secretary for the Department of Youth and Sports

The three Barotseland National Youth League leaders; Boris Muziba Muziba, Nayoto Mwenda and Sikwebele Wasilota (Skwiz) who were sentenced to 3 years prison sentence with hard labour by the Kaoma Magistrate Malata, on one count of “publication of false news with intent to cause fear or alarm to the public contrary to the laws of Zambia.” have successfully appealed their sentencing to the high court, and their trial is reported to begin tomorrow the 2nd of March 2015 at Mongu High court, at 09:00hrs. The three were arrested on the 26th of January 2014, and have been in prison since then.

Details of the appeal are yet to be known, but their main protestation was over the jurisdiction of the Zambian judicial system over Barotseland, let alone the merit of their case.

Last year Magistrate Malata found the BNYL officials guilty over Barotseland related publication they had written, privately, to another Barotseland leader. After incarceration and trial that lasted 6 months, the trio were found guilty, and slapped with 3 year prison sentences each, with hard labour for having publicized false news with intent to cause fear or alarm to the public contrary to the laws of Zambia, a charge that has since been declared 'unconstitutional' under Zambian laws. Throughout their trial the trio elected to say nothing in their defense, questioning the jurisdiction of Zambian judicial processes over Barotseland, as well as the merit of their offence. They boldly submitted that, as far as they were concerned, Barotseland had declared her independence from Zambia through the popular resolution of the 2012 Barotse National Council, BNC, in view of Zambia’s abrogation of the Barotseland Agreement of 1964.

Last year a similar charge was ruled “Unconstitutional” in the Lusaka High Court of Zambia; MacDonald Chipenzi, Richard Sakala, Simon Mwanza and the People; before the Honourable Mr. Justice I.C.T Chali of 4th December 2014.

Many Barotseland liberation activists, nationals and clergy criticized their imprisonment. One clergy man who categorically condemned and appealed for their release. Fr. Chanakila Muyunda said in a statement to the media that,

“Those three youths who were arrested, prosecuted and sentenced to three years imprisonment should be released with compensation. Among our learned men and women in law I beg you in the name of God to use the law you have learnt to secure the freedom of those youths.” The father said this after a lawyer friend of his had explained that in fact the Zambian law was clear on freedoms of the press and expression in general;

"The law is clear on the freedom of the press in Zambia. All of us including u and I are free to inform and publicise any form of news. We can report on the happenings in the country. Further, we have the freedom of expression enshrined in the constitution [Article 20 (1)]. Given the facts you have given, I wonder why the youths are locked up. That is a clear violation of human rights and an arbitrary use of powers. Given the law I have alluded to, the youths are at liberty to report on anything. However, if what they report on is malicious and turns out to be untrue then they will be liable for defamation. Defamation Father is not a criminal offence, it is a civil offence whose penalty if found liable are damages to be paid to the injured party. The only criminal offence related to Defamation is the defamation of the President."

With the above knowledge, the priest took a bold public position in demanding that the youths be released immediately. Furthermore, he said that he was convinced by the teachings of the Catholic Church which states that “human dignity can be protected and a healthy community can be achieved only if human rights are protected and responsibilities are met.”

Many Lozis have often been arrested and incarcerated for lengthy periods, sometimes without trial, over matters surrounding the Barotseland Agreement of 1964, even when Zambians of non – Lozi origin can freely express themselves over the same matter without government or police censorship and harassment.

Self-determination declaration announced by the people of Barotseland in 2012 through the historic BNC , refer to the territory's expressed preference for self-government and independent statehood. This territorial self-governance extends not only to the existing ‘western province’ boundary but that of 1900 as described and documented in the Anglo /Portuguese Barotseland boundary case of 1905 and Barotseland Northwestern Rhodesia in Council of 1899. The demands are for both external and internal self-determination. From the perspective of the traditional Barotseland nation-state, there are no challenges that the self determination of Barotseland claim of 2012 is not born in sincerity, or rather than as part of illegality process that would threaten the political boundaries of other states. The due process of the law was followed to the letter. For the people of Barotseland, the pursuit of territorial self-governance does not become a question of secession but a legitimate control over the institutions of government and cultural reproduction throughout the territory of the state.

The autonomy of a state is one of the most often employed term to describe territorial approaches to conflict resolution. It is used both in an abstract and functional sense in the context of governance arrangements, and as a concrete manifestation of territorial self-governance. It is important to bear in mind that Barotseland territory is not seeking for mere autonomy but sovereignty. The former is about self governance within an existing state in a unitary arrangement. Barotseland is no longer interested in unitary arrangement with Zambia, that has ruled or misruled our territory for fifty years, without any legal back up. Barotseland as a territory is conceptualized more appropriately as a place, bearing significance in relation to the Lozis history, collective memories, and ‘character’ of national identity. How we depict ourselves and how others define us is an essential trait of our existence as a nation that evolved for centuries. It defines who we are as a nation, and as part of the international community of southern Africa.

Every individual in Barotseland holds power identity that defines the vector of our independence resolve to statehood. It is realistic in a sense of individual power as a reservoir of unity in radical dimension to total freedom attainment, which is inversely proportional to change according to perception of events and their manipulation by leadership strategy of prospective liberation groups. The value of territorial identity is cardinal to avoid dormant attitude until it is threatened, revived or incited by political, military or cultural leadership utilizing a particular identity to attain power. However, it should be noted that every individual person is very important among the ethnic people of our great nation of Barotseland having several different group identities. In other words, Barotseland is a multicultural and a multiethnic nation, united under the old founded hierarchical monarch system, and it never had anything like one ethnic group threatening or overshadowing others.

The terms and principles of unity generally include policies or guidelines towards separation and integration within the future internal constitutional order of a state to maintain sovereignty, statehood and identity completely. This realization has been fulfilled by the act of transitional government inauguration in August 2014. It is appropriate to mention that the transitional government is under obligation to implement the terms of 2012 BNC resolutions which is an act of unilateral declaration of independence. It is also worthy of note that at no time did the 2012 BNC resolutions demand for an alliance or any other vehicle in order for the resolutions to be implemented ; to the contrary the resolutions demanded urgency of government to carry out the implementation. The gesture taken by the transitional government for the impasse between Barotseland and Zambia to be settled once and for all by the international court of justice is applauded, knowing the importance role of the court in international disputes.

As indicated in the letter of intent to take Zambia to ICJ, the lawyers, on behalf of the transitional government and people of Barotseland will seek relief from the court in four categories, namely Declaratory, Consequential, Financial and Interim or urgent relief.

1. The Court will be asked to declare: (under Declaratory relief):

a). that the basis Barotseland became integral part of Zambia was through the BA64 agreement

b). in its absence Barotseland has reverted to her original status,

c). hence, administration of the territory by Zambia is illegal.

2. The Court will, under Consequential relief:

a). asked to give directions for the assumption of responsibility for and control of Barotseland by Barotseland government and request Zambia to peaceful withdraw from the territory.

3. Under Financial relief Zambia shall be Ordered to make financial reparations to Barotseland:

(a) for the unlawful taking of the contents of its Treasury.

(b) for the loss of mine and mineral revenue and

(c) for the violation of the human rights of citizens of Barotseland.

3. The court will further ask under, Interim Relief:

(a) to be made on urgent application, either before or after the substantive case is commenced to secure safe and secure passage to the Barotseland legal team to travel to, within and from Barotseland and Zambia for the purposes of preparation and conduct of the case.

For now we should rally behind our government to be, internationally and administratively, seen as accepting the visionary leadership exhibited by His Excellence Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa and his team for engaging international lawyers of high caliber to table our case before appropriate court of ICJ , for the cause of achieving the expulsion of the oppressors. The facts are before us that Barotseland is ours, and was never annexed to Northern Rhodesia. All the people of Barotseland totally want Barotseland independent and there is nothing to stand in our way.

We already rejected the issue of mere self autonomy under RESTORATION of the abrogated BA64 and unanimously VOICED out for TOTAL Independence in our 2012 BNC gathering.

Barotseland must be free.

Tukongote Litunga Ni lyetu.
