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.

Let’s forget Barotseland Agreement and embrace our freedom.

In this discussion, we seek to bring to attention, why Barotseland Agreement (BA64) is dead and buried, and that we must come to conclusion to put aside any fears or debate of GRZ or BRE or indeed anyone else to discuss or revive the BA64 or the renegotiation of any new agreement in place of the BA 64, as a misguided insult to the Barotse nation.

In bringing up this series of discussions, we would like to mention that Bulozinahayaluna does not in any way dream of forming a government in Barotseland, or join her politics thereof, but will remain an information, observer and lobby grouping.

The Barotseland Post, also known as The Barotsepost, is an online media platform, for now, that is dedicated to reporting stories and news around Barotseland and beyond, giving exclusive coverage and access to the people and the nation of Barotseland to fully express themselves in their aspirations for self- determination.
