Barotseland to implement independence resolutions if PF passes Bill 10 as Given Lubinda fails to prove he hails from Barotseland

Justice Minister and Bill 10 ‘ambassador’ Given Lubinda recently failed to tell the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) where his village is located in Barotseland.
And Barotseland may commence steps to ‘break’ away from Zambia if the controversial Bill 10 is passed, sources at Limulunga have indicated.
Lubinda was recently on a Bill 10 mission in Limulunga accompanied by Attorney General Likando Kalaluka in the PF s continued bid to convince the BRE to back Bill 10 and to assure them that ‘anti’ Litunga and Barotseland clauses will be removed from the original Bill 10.
The Barotse Kuta however did not spare the two and after Lubinda could not even indicate where he comes from in Barotseland, he was warned to stop speaking for Barotseland while Likando Kalaluka was warned to stop supporting legislation that is only meant to mutilate Barotseland. Kalaluka was further reminded that his father had served Barotseland faithfully.
The BRE was only ready to support the Bill if controversial clauses were dropped and additionally if the Zambian government was ready to dialogue on the long standing Barotseland Agreement impasse.
Sources within Limulunga have told the Zambian Watchdog that should the Zambian government pass the controversial Bill 10 then they will have no choice but to start implementing the 2012 Barotseland National Council (BNC) resolutions were it was unanimously voted that Barotseland should ‘breakaway’ from Zambia and revert to its pre-1964 status as a separate country following Zambia’s repeated refusal to restore the 1964 Agreement that would have allowed Barotseland to continue being a part of Zambia with some form of autonomy and its own parliament as was the case before 1964 and as envisaged in the abrogated Agreement.
The Katengo legislative Council (parliament) was forcefully abolished by Kaunda in 1965 and one Induna Namunda (Mr Katanekwa Indopu) was detained without trial at Wilima prison in Kasama for resisting the Katengo abolition and the seizure of the Barotse treasury by the Zambian government

    This is what we may call a stale mate. However the Zambian Government is not afraid of anything because it is of the view that it can do anything to its people and nothing will happen. It is worse than colonialism.

    Why is gvt spending sleepless nights over bill 10? If it is representing (bill 10) the will of the people why do the same people it is purported to represent refusing to accept? Why is it not free flowing along with the zambians? Why is gvt panicking to have bill 10 passed? What have Pentecostal pastors in eastern province understood about bill 10 for them to up their zeal in support of its enactment? Why have the major stakes of our Zambian society; the Catholic church, the learned lawyers and LAZ, the civil society organisations etc refused to support this controversial bill? Can gvt come out in the open and explain why they are pushing it with such force to the extent of chartering jets for lubinda and kalaluka to bribe BRE to support it. Thank God lubinda has been reminded by bre that he is not even the right chap to lobby for their support to the bill because he is not even known nor even a lozi by birth or descent. Shame to u Given. Guys stop wasting peoples time, stop wasting national resources that thing called bill 10 has been rejected by people across the country, it is illegal. If you force it please be ready for the sad outcome from the people. Stop it.

    Jordan Chulu: Criticize Given Lubinda for his mistakes and not circumstances of his birth. He cannot change who his parents were.

    Lubinda, has failed, to point the village, where, he comes from. May be the father was a Somalian and mother Lozi? Let him, tell us. He seems, to have no village at all. Half black half mwenye

    Given Lubinda shouldn’t cause confusions so that he can continue plunder with Lungu.

    He is only culturally aligned to Barotseland because of upbringing.

    Technically speaking he is part Lenje (mother) and foreigner  (father). The name Lubinda is from his step-father.

    The big question now is “Where does Lubinda come from, is he even Zambian?”
