Mr Donald J. Trump,
President Elect of the United States of America,

United States of America.

Your Excellency,


On behalf of the people, the Royal Barotseland Government, the Monarchy and in my personal name, receive our heartfelt, warm and sincerest congratulations on your victory and accept our best wishes for your success as you prepare to take up the responsibilities and challenges of your high office.

The people of the United States of America have clearly spoken their minds through the votes they cast in favour of the Republican Party in the just ended general elections that was fiercely contested and followed by the world over. Your victory is victory for America and mainly to us as an emerging state your victory represents freedom as a people.  America means a lot; for it stands as a democratic standard to which other countries especially in Africa must attain in order to have sustainable democracy, good governance, general development and well-being of the people.

The people of Barotseland admire the political and democratic maturity of the United States of America; your victory is a reflection of how the people appreciate your ideology, and we are very sure that there will be change that will benefit the people of the United States of America and the whole world.

Therefore, the Government of the Barotseland Kingdom wishes you the best in your new term and endeavours and we have the belief that you will deliver to the peoples’ expectation and make America great again as a world policeman and custodian of democracy and human rights. We understand that you will be facing numerous social and economic challenges during your first term tenure, but we are still confident you will provide the leadership necessary to bring meaningful development to all Americans.

Most importantly, the United States of America plays a very important role in international politics regarding the promotion of democracy, good governance and human rights. I believe you will still be in the forefront to uphold these virtues for benefit of mankind.

Once more, the Barotseland Government, Barotse Monarchy and the people of Barotseland Kingdom wish you God’s blessings as president, and as an emerging state we look forward to a cordial diplomatic relationship with your government.

Yours sincerely,


Acting Administrator General,

Royal Barotseland government.
