A young activist is reportedly on police’s wanted list after writing a letter in which he challenged Zambia’s regional minister in ‘western province’, Nathaniel Mubukwanu, to resign on moral grounds for what he termed as the minister’s ‘alien position’ by remaining mute over numerous issues affecting the people of Barotseland.

It is a legal fact that Barotse people are not Zambians without the now-defunct Barotseland Agreement 1964. This is according to many eminent Zambian legal minds, two of whom are here below featured.

Barotse are generally reasonable, peaceful and civilized people. Therefore, to stop them from pursuing their independence from Zambia, all one needs to do is answer their many questions on Barotseland logically.

As explained in a previous article, ‘LINYUNGA-NDAMBO’ is that which shakes the neighbor to awaken them to real facts they may have ignored, overlooked or not known for one reason or the other, to make them acknowledge the situation as it really is, making them see the elephant in the room or admit that the emperor has no clothes.
