After receiving money from King Mohammed VI of Morocco, Edgar Lungu has once more withdrawn Zambia’s recognition of Saharawi Arab Democratic Republic (Western Sahara), the Zambian Watchdog has reported.

“This is what we mean when we say Edgar Lungu is just a corrupt money mongering, incompetent hypocrite whose foreign policy is based on which ruler of a foreign country gives him more money,” laments the watchdog media that has kept watch over the overall performance of the Zambian government, earning itself the tag of ‘one of the most hated’ media by the Zambian regime.

The case in which four Zambians have sued Lubosi Imwiko II in his capacity as Litunga of the Western Province of Zambia could not take off this morning as scheduled for non-availability of a High Court Judge to preside over it.

Mongu does not have any resident judge but depends on judges that periodically come to hold sessions in Mongu and because there was no judge assigned to the case, it has been adjourned indefinitely until a judge has been assigned to it. It is the same judge who will then decide when the court will sit again to hear the case.

In order to avoid what they have called ‘unwarranted’ suspicion and ‘malicious’ propaganda that Zambia’s ruling establishment is backing Imikendu’s Litunga Litgation, the ruling Patriotic Front party is now set to fire two of their most hardworking members, Nabiwa Imikendu and Charles Mutemwa, who have dragged Lubosi Imwiko II to a Zambian high court, demanding that he abdicates as Litunga of ‘Western Province’ of Zambia for alleged gross incompetence.

Why? It's simply too expensive, a government official suggested this week

“Zambians who come from the other provinces, who do not wish to understand that the ‘Western Province’ has a legitimate claim to be part of Zambia on a DIFFERENT BASIS to the rest of us.

“We cannot in good conscience try to gloss over and arrogantly dismiss this fact, as has been the practice in the past.

“We, as the rest of Zambia, made a deal with the Barotse Kingdom. We must now in all good faith acknowledge that we did not keep the agreement. Our partners in the broken agreement have clearly not been happy with our behavior for a long while. Let's come together and put it right in our time.” – Eminent Zambian Constitutional Lawyer, Dr. Rodger Chongwe, 28 October 2010.

Hosting the Kuomboka ceremony amidst the current confusion and tension will do more harm than good for the Kingdom of Barotseland, governance and cultural expert Muyendekwa Sishekano has advised.

“While the ceremony has been the pinnacle of the Barotse Kingdom in terms of marketing its rich and diverse cultural heritage, it would be counterproductive if the ceremony were to be held in the present ‘charged’ atmosphere. It is no longer a secret that the citizens of the kingdom are frustrated with their monarch and royal establishment for their apparent reluctance in supporting the speedy implementation of the unanimous 27th March 2012 Barotse National Council independence resolutions,” Muyendekwa has observed.

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.
