LAW professor Muna Ndulo says Zambia is rapidly degenerating into a police state as numerous citizens are getting detained without regard to their human rights.

In a statement following police’s arrest of UPND leader Hakainde  Hichilema who has since been charged with treason, Prof Ndulo, the director of Berger International Studies Program at Cornell Law School and Cornell Institute for African Development, stated that police must realise that they were not above the law and wondered how President Edgar Lungu, a lawyer by profession, was allowing the absence of rule of law in the country.

The 2017 Kuomboka took place in magnificent splendor and beauty. Or did it really?

To the casual observer and those not particularly conversant or concerned with the intricate Lozi etiquette regarding the ceremony, the 2017 Kuomboka will pass as the most spectacular and grandest ever witnessed. In fact, the new Ngambela of Barotseland was quick to acknowledge so in his vote of thanks. It was indeed a beautiful display of the rich culture of the Barotse nation as thousands of local and international tourists euphorically witnessed the 2017 Kuomboka, with million others watching the event through various media.

The heavy deployment of security forces of the Zambia army, police and paramilitary troops for this year’s Kuomboka ceremony of the people of Barotseland is a sure sign of strained relations between the two territories, some Lozi nationals have observed, alleging further that the unprecedented move proves that Zambia currently administers Barotseland only by the barrel of the gun.

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.
