The people of Barotseland must unite in their call for total independence as only through a unity of purpose would the nation actualize the 2012 Barotse National Council (BNC) Barotseland independence declaration!

Thus far, the Zambian government has managed to slow Barotseland’s quest for self-determination by mounting a calculated divisive strategy that has seen Barotseland divided, mainly through the spread of rumours and fake intelligence reports that independence activists plan to abolish the monarchy soon after they achieve total independence!

It was, in fact, these false rumours that tended to make the King and the Barotse Royal Establishment, BRE, reluctant to join Barotse nationals pushing for Barotseland independence, having been deceived by the Zambian government that independence would spell the end of the monarchy!

However, to put it on record one more time, there is no single individual or organization in Barotseland who is advocating the abolishment of the monarchy or plotting to usurp the authority of the Litunga, King of Barotseland because the nation and the Litunga are forever one.

In fact, the very term ‘Litunga’ means ‘land’ or ‘nation’ in Barotseland.

We hereby wish to advise that the Barotseland Administrator General, Afumba Mombotwa, and his two colleagues, Likando Pelekelo and Inambao Kalima, who just got freed from the more than three-year prison ordeal, will not be traveling to Mongu as soon as earlier desired.

Office of the Administrator General,

Royal Barotseland Government.



We wish to urge all the citizens of Barotseland and supporters of the Royal Barotseland Government in transition, that on-going mobilization for Barotseland self-government will continue as the Supreme Barotse National Council of March 2012 mandated.


As the new year dawns, we wish to commend the many people who have held their ground in our push for a completely self-determined Barotseland amidst much pain and retribution from an increasingly repressive Zambian regime that seeks to obliterate our kingdom through a forced union that neither recognizes nor offers any real benefit to the Barotse.


On 10th December in 1948, the United Nations adopted a set of universal human rights that apply to all of us. It is these rights that we now commemorate yearly, with this year’s theme being “Stand up for someone's rights today!”

The Barotseland Administrator General’s office, on behalf of the people, the Royal Barotseland Government and the Monarchy, has extended their heartfelt, warm and sincerest congratulations to Mr. Donald J Trump on his electoral victory, and wished him the very best of success as he prepares to take up the responsibilities and challenges of the highest office of President of the United States of America.

Attached is the entire message, here reproduced for public records only.

Mr Donald J. Trump,
President Elect of the United States of America,
Republican Party,
Washington DC,
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.
