The social media UK based group, Bulozi London, has bemoaned the lack of participation in the national affairs of Barotseland from many Lozis abroad.
Writing on social media, Bulozi London wished that the Lozis abroad did more to complement the efforts of their fellow nationals in Barotseland who were giving their all, and many times risking their lives, jobs and freedom just to make sure that Barotseland retained her dignity as a self determined nation.
Here below is Bulozi London’s expressed frustrations on social media and hopefully many Lozis abroad will be encouraged to find the many ways they could participate in the affairs of their nation, Barotseland.
“The majority of Malozi in the Diaspora are not committed to the cause of self-rule in Barotseland.
They live so much in the comfort zone such that their daily struggle is when there is no internet access at work to blog.
Wondering how many have responded to calls like the recent one from Mwana Mulena Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika ( http://barotselandpost.com/index.php/all-news/barotseland/item/2116-help-for-afumba-and-other-barotseland-leaders-legal-fees-urgently-required ) for small donations to support the incarcerated freedom fighters like Afumba Mombotwa and company.
You then have the audacity to inbox asking ‘Kanti zabulozi lizamaela kai?’
Most people back home have sacrificed their jobs and freedom for a future independent Barotseland and you can’t even deep (dip) into your pockets to at least send a $10 dollars!!
