Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press,
RE: HIS EXCELLENCY RT. HON. AFUMBA MOMBOTWA DATES THE MEDIA – 23rd AUGUST 2013
Events of the past week in Barotseland are no longer a secret to anyone as the whole world has become aware of these actualities. The international community has also been duly informed through the United Nations, European Union, African Union, Commonwealth, Amnesty International and several Regional and other international organizations about the Inauguration and taking of oath of office by Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa as Administrator General of the new state of Royal Barotseland Kingdom, to head a transitional government leading to general democratic and popular elections within three years. Consequently, a day after taking oath of office, Hon. Afumba announced, publicly, his team of secretaries of state and their deputies to form part of his provisional government on the 15th of August 2013.
As such, today the 23rd of August 2013, Radio Barotseland in Conjunction with Barotsepost will host a press conference to be addressed by His Excellency Rt. Hon. Afumba Mombotwa, the Administrator of Barotseland.
