Kuomboka Ceremony 2007 - Barotseland

Kuomboka is essentially about FREEDOM and independence from undesirable circumstantial bondage of the raging waters of Lyambai. Symbolically and figuratively, however, the 26th, 27th and 28th March 2012 BNC shall remain the greatest Kuomboka of all times on Barotseland’s annual calendar.

Barotseland, traditional homeland of the Lozi people. Many here have never recognized the government in Lusaka. Many don’t accept they are part of Zambia, and many want that independence formally recognized. “What we want is our Barotseland back. We won’t die without the Barotseland independence ” vowed a Barotse activist.

Michael Sata’s response to this? He's threatened to send in troops against them with orders to shoot the activists. It is the latest chapter in a story that stretches back to the days of Cecil John Rhodes.

World and Africa's Newest State, Royal Barotseland, Takes Root as Administrator General Afumba Mombotwa Takes Oath of Office to Head Transitional Government.

Background: On Tuesday 27th March 2012, The Barotseland National Council (the highest decision making body in Barotse governance system) unanimously resolved  to accept the unilateral nullification of the Barotse Land Agreement of 1964 by Zambia, and also resolved that Barotseland immediately  initiate all formal and necessary procedures and acts for the re-establishment of Barotseland Sovereignty and Independence, a de facto break away from its current underlying status within the Republic of Zambia.

Since then peaceful means have been engaged to full fill “Statehood” culminating in now the swearing in and announcing of a transitional government to be headed by Administrator General His Excellency Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa, who according to the Royal Barotseland Transitional Constitution will last for a period not exceeding 3 years, and in which period democratic elections must be held to elect a substantive Prime Minister.
