Former Prime Minister (Ngambela) of Barotseland Clement Sinyinda has been summoned to Mongu Central police where he is being interrogated.
Mr Sinyinda’s house was earlier surrounded by heavily armed police officers accompanied by some BRE Indunas on Monday night before he was summoned to Mongu police today for a yet to be established offence.
Some activists from the Barotse Imilema have gone to Mongu police to offer solidarity to Mr Sinyinda.
Mr Sinyinda resigned as Barotseland Prime Minister in November 2012 after the PF government bribed Litunga Lubosi Imwiko ii with a payment of K42 billion in exchange for him to frustrate the implementation of the 2012 Barotseland independence resolutions.
He is however still holding on to the instrument of power for the office of Ngambela (The Ngongi) and is technically viewed as Ngambela.
Litunga Lubosi is in the process of appointing a ‘user friendly’ person to the office of Ngambela and may possibly want the police to help him get the instruments of power from Mr Sinyinda.
