The case in which four Barotse activists are charged with treason is expected to commence for continued trial at the Kabwe high Court today. Afumba Mombotwa, Sylvester Kalima Inambao, Likando Pelekelo and Paul Masiye Mwasiyaleti have all pleaded not guilty to the charge.

And the Acting Administrator General of Barotseland has disclosed that more people have travelled for the court case while several others have intensified the campaigns for a free Barotseland. He says that due to anger, some government vehicles in the land have been engraved.

 

More details coming later.
