Demand the release of Afumba Mombotwa and tell his people where he is - campaign Started on AVAAZ.ORG

06 December 2014

An international petition demanding the release of Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa and others has been started on the world's leading online petition web site AVAAZ.ORG and it reads in part as follows:

"We have sad tidings in Barotseland, as His Excellency Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa, has been captured by the Zambian Government with Rt. Hon. Likando Pelekelo and Rt. Hon. Kalima yesterday in Mwandi Sisheke. Therefore, we request that with your contacts in the world, you can somehow have influence so that their release can be expedited.

"We also call on you to publicly condemn the arresting of these prisoners, and ensure their immediate release and establish a means of peaceful discussion with the newly appointed administrator of Barotseland, Hon. Afumba Mombotwa. We fear for their lives as we do not know where they have been taken and the Zambian government has blocked news of their arrest to the people of Barotseland." will always protect your privacy and keep you posted about this and similar campaigns.

We therefore, wish to encourage the people of Barotseland home and abroad, the people of Zambia and all peace loving democratic and law abiding citizens of the world to participate in this campaign which will be delivered to the Zambian government, United Nations, Commonwealth, SADC, and African Union who we hope will use this petition to appeal to Zambia to act lawfully towards the new state and government and entire population of Barotseland.

The petition can be found and signed here:
