Kuomboka should go ahead at all costs to please Sata

Sata and his newly found friend the Litunga

The Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) on Tuesday held another meeting mwa “Kashandi” and not in the usual KUTA, at where they resolved that the Kuomboka  must go on despite security concerns and low water levels.According to the Barotse Post, the Kashandi is not the usual meeting place as it is the place where the Litunga sits and make his programs and sits with his cabinet of Indunas. It is also the place where he meets people who are visiting him.

Insiders say the meeting was in such a deadlock until the final hour where it was resolved that BRE go ahead with the Kuomboka ceremony preparation because President Sata insisted that in view Zambia’s scheduled hosting of the U.N.W.T.O. Zambia shouldn’t miss this opportunity to attract a lot of tourism and foreign exchange.

“As such the Litunga is expected to travel to Lealui tomorrow on Wednesday, a matter that we find laughable because Lubosi Imwiko II has been in Limulunga all year long” the insider observed. Kuomboka literally involves the ‘shifting’ of the Litunga from his flooded Lealui palace to the upper ground of Limulunga palace.

On the matter of security, Zambia has sent an advance team of security personnel to Lealui this afternoon with extra security expected in due course

Earlier the Barotse Post had reported that the 2013 Kuomboka was in doubt as the BRE had decided to cancel it citing among other things security concerns, at which point Lusaka insisted the Kuomboka must take place with or without water.

      They want to find anything with which they can fight Sata and his PF government. That’s why there’s this obsession with the Litunga and the Barotse issue. The problem is ; it is not going the way they anticipated hence the shrills and contradictory articles. Kuomboka is good for the local economy , for the shopkeepers, lodge and hotel owners.

    Aluyi,all i can say is that there is nothing we can do except to wait.Lubosi has betrayed his Fathers so let him answer to them.wa ziba miila and there is is nothing we can do,remember like it or not ufitile kwa makono and that means he knows his responsibilities which he is negating.
    The luyana our fathers had a self checking system that system though heavily battherd is still working for us.
    Lealui where the great KING was has been compromised.Thasts why we say”lumute lubatanganyi mundi wasikati lubuta ngombe wabona safunguka nikuba ndila kwenda mundi wandume””
    Is this still TRUE aluyi or the GREAT KING himself must fight the battle to save the kingdom MBOO ruled??
    How long will we stay without the heir of imbala??mwambwa numamona mukulu wa nyala,mukulu wasilundu.
    THE LUYI KNOW WE ALWAYS COME BACK!!WATCH

    What are you talking about there is no minority tribe in zambia.true bemba tribe is found in mprorokoso, luwingu,chinsali and kasama that is a fact.Lozi is not a tribe just like nyanja is not a tribe.Zambia has 72 tribes and 35 are found in the present western province.Even the Litunga is not a lozi by tribe he is a luyana and mbowe by tribe.Silozi is a languange spoken by all tribes in western.

    What do you expect to happen if you vote people into people that are not worthy of the high office !!
    Now everything has gone upside down and back to front !!!
    Now, just to think of another joker wanting to acquire the high office, come what may,(WK), makes my skin crawl !!!
    It is a total shame what is happening to one of our tribes in our motherland !!! Hope, the people of Zambia can learn from this and rectify the situation sooner rather than later !!!

    The word vermin refers to animals, usually smaller ones, that are annoying (e.g., insects, rats) that spread disease and are destructive to property.

    Do you surely think Lozis are what the meaning above states?? Anyway two wrongs do not make a right, and I don’t think you have anything positive to offer. I can only say let God arise and our enemies be scattered in Jesus’ name.

    Denial is a big problem for this site and often leads to massive depression and eventually madness and paranoia. Let us all accept that currently our president is HE president Michael Sata and we must give himthe due respect. Now you say he will shun the Kuomboka and then you say he wants it to go aheard at all costs, what are you trying to say?

Do not just squail without solution.You demagogues Lozis are good pipo the only bad pipo are those who are throwing stones.We need development in western province like universities,stadia, roads, teachers houses and many more which the pf govt is already doing why fighting.

      My friend, if you know international ettiquette, you will realise that the Litunga’s back side of his hand is facing the camera and the President’s hand shows the inside (palm). If you didn’t know, that means the Litunga is commanding the show and the President is only the follower. Ask anyone who has studied Presidential ettiquette. This is why Obama’s aides always adise him which side to stand when he meets fellow Presidents. READ AND OBSERVE. DON’T JUST MAKE NOISE.

      Who has supported him? Grow up Sata is the President of Zambia love him or hate him. Idiots like you behave like it is the end of the world when there’s someone you hate as President. Go and hang yourself if you’re not happy. If you have battles to fight why don’t you take the lead and fight them yourself? Tell your ka ma tribe to fight your stupid battles rather than sitting on the sidelines hauling insults at Lozis.

    I am surprised at the “matter of fact” assertions of id.iots on this site. Honestly what evidence do you have for these stupid $8m assertions? Can you please show us the Litunga’s Account so that we see for ourselves when this money was paid into his account? Aren’t you the same stinking maggots who wanted the Lutungaship to be abolished because he was the one behind the secession movement? “One Zambia One Nation” you screamed! “We are one people” “We are intermarried” “Lozis are selfish for wanting to break away”. Fast forward “The Litunga is against secession, he has been bought” “Lozis are cowards” “Lozis are traitors”.

      Everyone has a price. The point is that the one who offered tax payers money to the Litunga is as greedy, stupid and foolish as the Litunga himself. How many Zambian people can benefit from USD8Million? But in PFs wisdom, only one foolish King at the expense of so many youths who ushered this govt into power deserves it. What kind of greed is this?

    3. After voting for mafi you are told no BRA
    4. You protest your children are arrested
    5. Pamafi sends soldiers on instruction to kill on sight anything that mumurs fa,fa, yeni, yeni sha.

      PF only got 2 seats in Western Province. MMD got 10. UPND 4. and ADD Got 1. So in your warped head this translates into the majority of Lozis having voted for PF! You’re definitely an inbreed with a deformed brain.

      Dont pretend. You are clearly Bemba. If you are Lozi you are inonge wins. Genuine lozis support bo clement sinyinda because he has their interest at heart not this selout and Bemba captive. The UPND has nothing to do with this. For us True Lozis, we are mourning. The Litunga has sold us, enslaved us. There is no more dignintiy for us. Do you know what Sata and Emmanuel Mwamba discussed in bemba after wards???
      Open your eyes lozis. Sinyinda had brought us some level of respect and dignity. Now this litunga has taken away everything in exchange for money.

    If the water level is low why should kuomboka go ahead. I smell a rat at this decision. Otherwise whatever accidents will occur there, let those spearheading it take responsibility. Let’s not pretend as if all is well in Zambia, when we know how many times BRE has been backstabbed by politicians of Zambia, eversince independence. For the sake of being paid money by PF our King wants to sail to show tourist that everything is alright in Zambia and indeed western province.
