Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) Ngambela Clement Sinyinda says the issue of the region returning to its original status is a no surrender no retreat for Barotseland because things have reached a point of no return.
Meanwhile, the Prime Minister has described as baseless assertions by some people that the establishment has been bribed by the Zambian government to withdraw the struggle for total independence of Barotseland.
Hon. Sinyinda was speaking Sunday evening in Limulunga at the palace when he officially closed the ceremonial activities for the 10th Anniversary of His Royal Majesty (HRM) the King of Barotseland Litunga Lubosi Imwiko II
And Hon. Sinyinda has also strongly dismissed assertions by some bad wishers that the BRE has lost interest in the ongoing struggle to secure independence and further described as not true sentiments of people saying he is a coward.
The Second Senior leader of Barotseland has urged people of Barotseland to voluntarily clear their canals for farming activities and avoid the system of waiting to receive handouts which he said encourages slavery.
The Prime Minister further urged Lozis to guard against strangers in the region who want to finish the forests through timber businesses and deplete the fish species in the land which are helpful in improving the livelihood of the people.
He concluded by urging the youths and subjects to desist from any violent means saying Brotseland should achieve its independence without shedding any blood or destroying property.
No senior national government official from Zambia was invited to officiate at the event but only some officials at the provincial level who participated as spectators.
