A Zambian parliamentarian has observed that late president Michael Sata used the Barotseland Agreement of 1964 to ascend to power.

Mazabuka Central United Party for National Development (UPND) Member of Parliament Garry Nkombo told the Zambian parliament Wednesday afternoon that the results of the lies on the Barotseland Agreement were now clear for everybody to see.

And former Zambian information minister Vernon Mwaanga has said that the new Zambian government that will be elected during the January 2015 presidential by-election should engage into dialogue with the Barotse Royal Establishment over the Barotseland Agreement of 1964.

Each time there is a presidential election Zambian politician’s raise the Barotseland Agreement 1964 issue to win votes in Barotseland. With an impending presidential by – election within 90 days of late president Michael Sata’s death this matter will once again be a complain issue. What is not clear yet is whether Barotse citizens will entertain Zambian electioneering, with Barotseland independence activists already calling for the total snubbing of the by-election.

Although Barotseland declared independence from Zambia in 2012, her processes of citizenship, like many other government institutions, are not yet finalized, and Zambia administration still holds control of the territory, and do not spare a moment to show just how much in control they still are, with thousands of military and security operatives camped all over Barotseland, besieging the emerging country.

The Barotseland Agreement that was signed between Barotseland and Northern Rhodesia in 1964 to form Zambia was abrogated in 1969 by Zambia, and on 27th March 2012, Barotseland resolved to accept the abrogation and revert to her previous status following unheeded pleas by Barotseland authorities for Zambia to restore the treaty defunct treaty.
