Petition to the International Community for Release of All Barotseland Nationals Arrested And Jailed on Barotseland Related Cases.

20 January 2015

From the time Barotseland resolved to revert to her original status on 27th March 2012 as a sovereign state, separate from Zambia, following Zambia’s abrogation of the Barotseland Agreement of 1964, the Zambian government has used force and arrested Barotseland nationals on politically engineered cases.

However, we the undersigned petition the international community to:

1. Pressurize the Zambian government to unconditionally release all detainees arrested on Barotseland related charges among them, Rt. Hon Afumba Mombotwa, Rt. Hon Sylvester Kalima Nambao, Rt. Hon Likando Pelekelo, Rt. Hon Masiye Masiyaleti, Rt. Hon. Mubita Waluka, Boris Muziba, Nayoto Mwenda and Sikwibele Wasilota.

2. Ensure that Zambia stops any further arrests of Barotseland nationals on trumped up charges.

3. Compel the Zambian government to engage Barotseland authorities and commence the disengagement process under the auspices of international bodies and organizations.
