The Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) has refuted allegations by government suggesting that His Majesty the Litunga, Lubosi Imwiko II requested for the police re-enforcement at the Lealui palace in the wake of unfolding events in the region.
In a press statement broadcast on Oblate Radio Liseli last evening, Induna Inete, Akapelwa Silumbu said it is a taboo to implicate the Litunga in any form of issues explaining that the Litunga is never quoted.
The traditional leader who was accompanied by Induna Mutwaleti, Induna Mubonda and Induna Nambayo, said the government statement is aimed at bringing divisions amongst the people in the province.
The royal establishment has since demanded an apology from Defence Minister, Geoffrey Mwamba and his Home Affairs counterpart Edgar Lungu to the Litunga and the Council’ Kuta. – Radio Liseli
