However, the government has still not yet done this in apparent preference to deposed Josiah Nyumbu who is still on Government payroll, leaving Kashengula Nyumbu still unattended to.
He remains unsecured and poverty stricken, probably to frustrate him so that he will not take up the chieftaincy at Nañoko.
The scare on the chief’s house this evening appears to be more serious than before, prompting some people from Limulunga to go and try to secure the chief as he is without official security because the government has not yet gazetted him!
Lately, a couple of chiefs enthroned by the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) and the Litunga from the Nkoya and Mbunda royal families have died in what many believe are succession related wrangles!
First, it was Mwene Kahale (Edward Kahale) and then Chief Mwanatete of Luampa, both enthroned by the BRE and the Litunga according to long established procedure, who both died in the space of a couple of weeks.
The wrangles involve Nkoya and Mbunda factions, respectively, where some wish to be recognized directly by the government instead of the Litunga King of Barotseland as has always been the case in Barotseland and western province of Zambia.
It is these latest rebellious activities that the BRE and the Litunga have accused the government of using to undermine the authority of the Litunga over his Kingdom because the government continue to recognize dethroned chiefs or those that the Litunga has not yet recognized, while refusing or neglecting to gazette those enthroned by the Litunga.
