Barotseland Army commander rejects resignation of Ngambela

                                       , 2012.

His Majesty The Litunga of Kingdom of Barotseland.

Mongu – Lealui.

Your Majesty.

We at the Barotseland Liberation Army (BLA), a Barotse National Military Force have rejected the Ngambela’s resignation. The Barotseland Army state that Hon. Sinyinda is still the Ngambela of Barotseland, he was chosen by the Citizen of Barotseland not by the Litunga or Indunas and represented Kingdom of Barotseland a {Kingdom} and was for the people of Kingdom of Barotseland and not for the Litunga or Indunas. Therefore the indunas who are chanting his resignation should resign themselves.

We would like to state that BLA has now more than 3, 000 Lozis enlisted for what is turning out to be a Barotse Military Force or a Rebel Group by Zambia to defend Barotseland in pursuit of our independence from Zambia’s Western Regional. We are determined to breakaway from Zambia more especially that we have the support of Citizen of Barotseland, you the Litunga and your entire leadership. “Already, we have more than 3, 000 men and women in all corners of Kingdom of Barotseland and Zambia to fight back and we will do so without hesitation,”

We shall teach Zambia Government and its President Sata a lession their shall never forgotten, Zambia Government and its President Sata have failed to honour the Kingdom of Barotseland Agreement of 1964 within 90 days of assuming power after promised was made in Barotseland, has opted assign a huge number of soldiers and commandos to the region to quell a simmering volatile situation. “There is no turning back. We have told the BRE [Barotseland Royal Establishment] to stay out of this just in case they say this is criminal.

Barotse National Military Force strength is from men and women in the Zambia Police, Zambia Army and the intelligence system hail from their region and are feeding us with vital information on how to strike or defend themselves and the Kingdom. Barotse National Military Force shall not at any point engage in dialogue with the Zambian Government, Kingdom of Barotseland leaders such as the Litungu and the Ngambela (Prime Minister), President Sata has publicly derided them.

The Zambian President Sata recently referred to the Litunga as an ordinary chief with no more powers than others while calling the Ngambela a fake Prime Minister and Lozis has fish.

Barotse National Military Force demand for the release of the 17 Kingdom of Barotseland activists arrested for shredding draft copies of the Zambian constitution and stand charged with malicious damage.

    The King of Barotseland Litunga Lubosi Wa Imwiko 2 is selfish (Lyangelino),as long as he’s still on that throne,the Lozi people shall continue suffering for there wealth and it will be very hard to restore the Kingdom of Barotseland. As for him and his family are living,sleeping and eating in comfort with alot of security surrounding them. So you people note this…! Nitumezi. Limulunga la Mulena. Mwana Liwanika Lya Mafuci.

    That letter is quite shallow and lacks depth. It seems to be politicking on the part of the writer. If you have a military force or militia you don’t go around shouting from the rooftops about it unless you are sabre rattling. You need the support of your local populace. How do you maintain logistic issues? Poverty levels are high in Barotseland, do you think military operations will improve that situation? 3,000 members is a joke if you want to prosecute a military campaign. Go and talk to the Eritrean fighters if you want a situational analysis in fighting for your independence. You cannot secure the borders of Barotseland even if you have a 30,000 member military force. Go and study the works of Sun Tzu and Clausewitz and maybe even Ho Chi Minh if you are serious. Military campaigns never achieve much in the long run, you need political solutions and strategies to back up guns and bullets. If you are prepared to see repression and loss of life to take root then you are going the right way. Is that high price worth going through?

    After so many years of togetherness ,most zambians including lozis are alarmed by this careless talk of secession. after 48years I am afraid we are one people.

    There is no such nonsense as a pure tribes person …who ever is claiming that title is a liar.Through generations I have ended up a product of four tribes !!!

    can the ritful pipo intervine in the barotse issue b4 its to late.and my advice to the pipo of barotse is let them not trust their king becouse he likes to much money.he is someone wu can be bought with any price.last year wen he was getting money from RB he neva commented on the matter wen sinyinda cud privatly help those pipo wu were imprisoned last year.this man (king) is blind, and untrusted just take away.last time wen i was him ,his sisters told him to join ths because it was him wu was going to be ther not recieve money corruptly wen western province remained poor.he is just a businessman wu wants to enrich himself.u cant win with such a man.lozis go ahead n b prayerful.lets go barotse fight for land n dont allow pipo like lubosi i knw him well,we hve had so many businesses together he is stingy n to much of himself

      Nonsense, you are not Lozi. No Lozi can support the enslavement of Barotseland by Zambia.
