The social media UK based group, Bulozi London, has bemoaned the lack of participation in the national affairs of Barotseland from many Lozis abroad.

Writing on social media, Bulozi London wished that the Lozis abroad did more to complement the efforts of their fellow nationals in Barotseland who were giving their all, and many times risking their lives, jobs and freedom just to make sure that Barotseland retained her dignity as a self determined nation.

Here below is Bulozi London’s expressed frustrations on social media and hopefully many Lozis abroad will be encouraged to find the many ways they could participate in the affairs of their nation, Barotseland.

“The majority of Malozi in the Diaspora are not committed to the cause of self-rule in Barotseland.

They live so much in the comfort zone such that their daily struggle is when there is no internet access at work to blog.

Wondering how many have responded to calls like the recent one from Mwana Mulena Akashambatwa Mbikusita Lewanika ( ) for small donations to support the incarcerated freedom fighters like Afumba Mombotwa and company.

You then have the audacity to inbox asking ‘Kanti zabulozi lizamaela kai?’

Most people back home have sacrificed their jobs and freedom for a future independent Barotseland and you can’t even deep (dip) into your pockets to at least send a $10 dollars!!

Shemula…!!…..Shame….!!!!” END!

    Bahesu it is a sad reality in countries like South Africa, Angola, Botswana, Namibia, Swaziland, Lesotho even Zambia where I have been to! The only consolation is the realisation of how immense the colonisation and indoctrination of Kaunda (Zambianisation) has been on our people! Our people need to remove this vail of identity crisis and understand that the homeland is free at last and participate our domestic politics and other functions. I cannot wait for the day when shall be one and back home officially at last.

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.
