President Rupiah Banda says he will not be pressured to release people charged with treason over the Barotseland Agreement of 1964.
He said as a Republican President he will make a decision on the matter when it is necessary.
And president Banda has thanked the Litunga for stating that Zambia is one country and that there should be no violence over the Barotse Agreement of 1964.
President Banda says he is happy that the Litunga through the Barotse Royal Establishment stated that the Barotseland is part of Zambia.
He explained that it has always been government’s position that the Barotseland is part of Zambia and that Zambians are one.
He told journalists shortly before he left for Northern Province that every Zambian should embrace peace.
He will be in Isoka Friday, to commission road works on the Isoka-Muyombe-Chama-Lundazi road.
