Two people have died following the riot in Mongu today over the Barotse agreement. Home Affairs Minister Mkondo Lungu confirmed the two deaths and arrest of about hundred people in connection with the riot.

And Government has said that  it will not condone any group of people that will continue spreading hatred, tribalism and violence in the country.

Acting government spokesperson Dora Siliya said that  anyone who wants to take the law into their own hands will be dealt with firmly to send a signal to all thinking that government is soft on the matter.

Youths block the road that leads to the palace during the riot in Mongu over the Barotse agreement.

Ms Siliya has called on people of Western province to remain calm and not to allow the situation to worsen.

Addressing a press in Lusaka today, Ms. Siliya said  it was unfortunate that the group calling itself the Black Bulls are taking advantage and misleading youths.

Ms. Siliya said  youths should be vigilant and ensure that they are not victims as they will only be the ones to be exposed to the police.

She said it is the reason why government has sent a full force of police to diligently deal with the matter in the province.

And Radio Lyambai in Mongu has been closed.  Sources at the radio station confirmed to QFM that the radio station was closed this morning when police stormed the station and confiscated computers.

The source says the station was closed for airing voice pops of people on the Barotse agreement.

    You tolerated these thugs for too long! Check out those who are both financing and deceiving them in the diaspora as well! I know Zambia cannot slip into anarchy. It is protected by God! Lock ’em up that others may learn from their stupidity too!

    This is indeed a very sad develop marred in governments failure to look seriously at this issue. Police why use live bullets on people in this technological era. Sata should know that even the truth should be stated at the right time and consistently so. Not moving with politics and a strong desire to go to state house. The consequences are there for all to see

    Remember the Red Berets during the infamous food riots on the Copperbelt? Sting those “fulls” with ’em! They will learn a lesson of their life! They will never call other people Manyukukunyuku again. Every province in Zambia is for Zambians (and other peace loving foreigners!) You cannot be an island! ZNDF go deal with ’em! This is a coups d’état! It requires guys from Ndola and I assure you the Ndola boys will drive this nonsense out of them for good!

    This is a sad development indeed. However, the people of Barosteland have waited for close to 50 years hoping Govt will honour its part. Remember that even the fight for independence was achieved with some people losing their lives. The people of Barosteland will do the same if need be for the sake of future generations just like our independence fathers did for all of us so we can enjoy the freedom we have today. The heavy police presence is what led to the riot and it was irresponsible of police to have gone there with guns.

    No one group of people is special than the other. We are all Zambians. The instigation that all non-Lozi speaking must leave Western Province must be quashed with the etxreme force and the ring leaders of the riot imprisoned for life. Do not send Police to Western Province but snipers and Commandos.

    This is total leaership failure,blaming the catholics,Sata or any interested party who are not in a position to make decisions will not doSata is not the president of Zambia,so whatever he thinks,said or did not say does not matter,what matters is the opinion of those who have the authority to do something about it.

    I said it,the biggest mistake a govt can make is to stifle debate,dialogue always gives people a breathing vent,when you shut people up eventually they will explode,God did not bless human beings with a mouth for just eating and kissing.

    # 15 One “full” had to be hand picked by the colonial master to justify their occupation. That “full” had to be pampered to make him feel superior to others! The “full” was just like any other but was pawn in the circus of divide and rule and divide and conquer! Other “fulls” like the other big one do not get it in their thick heads! That is why the Zambian gov cannot recognize what was done in the name of divide and rule to be legitimate! Does you thick head get it?

    This is very unfortunate. Things should never have reached such levels if Politicians in this country had done their homework and managed this country well. I have just been following events in Tunisia where there are serious riots.
    These issues are caused by POOR governance that leads to a POOR standard of living among the citizenry.
    Even in MMD, WE HAVE NEVER HAD CONSISTENT POLICIES AND PROGRAMS.
    All the three presidents have come with their styles and u turns and old politicians like VJ have been changing colors to suit circumstances.
    Lets improve our governance and the quality of life for the majority poor.

Lets comment and post the solutions so 2 make other people understand whats happain in Mongu not just posting just coz u got a right to post comments.

    zebiggy we are not blaming catholics we are just stating facts. remember these issues started when duffy issued a staement that western province was against govt and it was under developed, then membe started they campaign and funded the initial activities, then sata jumped on the bandwagon and now it has all flared up. zambia is a properly constituted state and it must protect its territorial integrity. all the guys involved must be fished out and dealt with properly. even in europe they dont allow such anarchy, why do you think the british fought for so many years in northern ireland? to protect their unitary state. One Zambia One Nation. zambia will never be divided simples

    Consquences of trivializing issues!!! Zambian maturity means being able to judge and see the intensity of issues. outbursts of calling the guys involved in this issue, fool, ignorant and all the negative worlds will not work?? Some of you are ignorantly talking about the police and force do you have an idea of how people unarmed have fought people with bullets??? its not only force that is needed but a careful dialogue and government and other citizenry should desist from making any claims of calling the agrived parties opportunists, thugs as this will just breed more anger. lets be mature as Zambian. we have a big problem of calling people or sorts of names even on LT don’t take other people as useless. these are the consquences. am not in support of violence, Pls lets not trivialize it.

    Suppose next week govt decides to restore the Barotse agreement:

    1.What will be the status of non westerners(non Lozis) in Barotse and Lozis outside Barotse be?
    2.What will happen to the symbols of Zambia as a state like the flag,national anthem and constitution in Barotse?
    3.As a non Lozi will i still be free to drive in and out of Baroste without querries?
    4.Will my Lozi freinds suddenly become foreigners or expatriates outside Barotse and what will be the status of the civil service,the republican presidenCy,the Litunga and role of other arms of govt in this agreement.
    5.Are the boundaries of Barotse and western province the same?

    Somebody answer me these simple questions which flood my head concerning this issue.

    Zambia Police should NEVER fire live rounds of ammunition at unarmed demonstrating citizens. Francis Kabonde, and Mkhondo Lungu should resign or be sacked and if the President authorised this he too should answer for it.

    Our president while in Mongu said the problems in the province are overexagerated and everything is normal!!!! is this normal. am saddened by this isssue and this problem of leaders not listening to demands of people is scary. imagine how they even demonize those who oppose the uncountable trips by our president and the dozens accompanying him. pls learn to listen don’t be stiff-necked. when people go to these extremes it show that they are a number of factors at play. Panji says these elections will be the bloodiest IF issues are not looked into and the following day the whole MMD press and the government decides not to hid to the advise and start attacking him…. poor reasoning that is costly to the nation

    4 BRE IS AFRAID BECAUSE MALOZI FEEL BRE HAS NOT LOBBYED FOR DEVELOPMENT FOR 46 SIX YEARS NOW AND BRE IS IRELEVANT. HENCE FORCING BRE TO SUCEDE
    5 MALOZI WANT SECESSION BECAUSE THEY FEEL THEY WILL HAVE TO BE SELF RELIANT IN 20 YEARS TIME IE THEY WILL HAVE INDUSTRIES, COLLEGES, GOOD ROADS EVERYTHING IN THEIR OWN BACK YARD

    The throne to the Lozi kingdom has always been a hot seat. There may be rules of succession but every incumbent is under threat from somewhere. Imasiku was deposed by Sebitwane of the Kololo, who ruled till his death. After Sebitwane’s son Sipopa, the crown reverted to the maLuyana through Mwanawina 2. Lubosi was deposed by Akufuna but regained the throne later. No Lozi King is safe. There may be more to this saga than just the so called ‘Barotseland Agreement!’

    The solution to this problem is in the hands of Rupiah and his govt,at this juncture it will not matter what Sata says or did,this is a taste of leadership,the presidency is not all about banqueting and ceremonies,this is it for MMD,KK had his Leshina uprising,Bush had Saddam and Bin Laden,Rupiah has the Bulls and rumours of secession to deal with,whether he uses force,persuasion or dialogue,posterity will judge him,but from were am standing,he’s completely useless to deal with this,i stand to be proved wrong.

    Only a person with small mind and brain would start blaming other people on this BRA64 isue.

    What every Zambian is hoping for now is peace in Western provice and not GUNS. Such a nice province and nice people. GRZ should stop threatening the good people of Western Province because they are not criminals but Zambians who just want their voices heard. This is what happens when you take people for granted. Zambian peoples are still suffering but yet the price of copper is at its highest. Some roads in Western province just like many other provinces are unaccessible. For example, the shortest route from Lukulu to Mongu through the plains is nothing to write about, Mongu – Kalabo, If you have been to all provinces and districts in Zambia like I have been, you will agree with me. As I have already mentioned, we need mediators in Western province and not Guns.

They, together with you, don’t desrve to be in this age of free expression of ideas. You are busy throwing stones at Sata, Post, Duffy. Hey! We have a national issue to solve man! When others said there is a problem in western, govt (or MMD) was quick to refuse saying there was nothing. this type of irresponsible blaming of the opposition is only rooted in our govt politicians & i guess u rub shoulders with them. we respect MMD, thou we oppose this irresponsibilty by sympathisers like you.

Brace for serious situations MMD. The conditions that MMD have created in Zambia is leading to all these. If MMD/RB/Kunda had shown leadership, all this would not be happening. You reap what you sow.

    Why don’t we ask ourselves why now? After almost half a century of independence and the drafting of the said document, why have things reached this stage? Almost all the people involved and protesting were not even there when it all begun, why now? What is missing in their lives for them to react to something they even have no knowledge about? What are the prevailing circumstances in the nation for one part to thing of breaking away? How about the development in that area? How is it? How about the leadership in office, have they paid attention to the nation to reduce such from happening? What is their focus in relation with the people? Could it be that people are tired of the sitting government failing to attend their problems? Where is the leadership? Are threats the answer?

    I somehow blame Chiluba for this anarchy. Chiluba brought tribalism by elevating the Bembas and the Bemba language. The Lozi being tribal decided to resucitate and regroup as a tirbe having observed the Bemba hagemony. KK promoted One Zambia One Nation because he foresaw this anarchy. But Chiluba hated everything about KK which I think was not a wise thing to do.
    On the other hand may be these anarchist are been used as porns by the multinationals who could have taken advantage of tribalism that Chiluba brought.

And most of the brutal leaders in the World have been catholics; Pinochet, Marcos, Mobutu, Bokasa, Boigny, Mugabe. By the way, Guy Fawkes, the chap who entered the British parliament with the honest intention of blowing it up was catholic.

Taking everything as business as usual and saying enough is enough, we will not tolerate politicians stealing from us while we remain poor anymore. This is what happens when you have mediocre leadership that only believes in intimidating people instead of engaging them and finding a lasting solution to the problem.

  78. vote

    Police are not to blame but the stupid people themselves who are being used,such actions are allowed,even in the bilble any one who was a danger to society were dealt with,eg David and Goliath.So these people want to bring confusion in our beloved country thus stain action from police!

    This situation is worrying. This MMD is taking things for granted. You think by killing people you are acting firmly?

    Malcom X once said “There is no revolution withiout blood”. We in Western province will go on pressing the government to honour the Barotse Agreement. We’ll rule ourselves one day. There’s oil and natural gas in Western province and that’s why the government can’t let go of Western province.

  81. vote

    Black Bull,don’t cheat yourself,where was the Litunga getting mineral royaties from,has there ever been any mine in western province?You people were depending on N/western And C/belt.These two provinces have almost everything thats why you are mistaken and You will never rule yourselves and not even zambia.

  82. vote

    The die is cast, these people now have every right to go underground and engage Banda’s terrorist Police and Army with fire. This is the only way this government will listen that people want this agreement restored. As for the likes of Dora, its too rich of this dull girl to allege the youth are being taken advantage of, especially for a whole entire minister who has no clue about the meaning of the word nullity.

    History will repeat itself in western province. Angola went to war for more than 30 years, so was Mozambique. Some so called intelligent people in western province are responsible for this mess and RB should just put his foot down meet fire with fire. The net effect is that the province will lag 100 year behind the rest of the country unless all Lozis strewen throught out Zambia start fighting. If this happens then it will be the Lozi Tribe VS the rest of the tribes in Zambia (Tutsi-Hutu situation in Rwanda). Peaceful Lozis will survive. The sarrogates living in the diaspora and agitating this have blood in their own hands. My advice to RB please bring in more tanks and more live ammunition into western province because there are people who like bullets.

  84. vote

    Whether you like it or not the game has now been taken to higher level by RB’s stupidness. Lozis in western province have now tasted blood, seeing a brother being killed. That boy was unarmed. All of you guys saying kill the Lozis yo9u are saying that only because you are not Lozi. And that is the very reason why Lozis have always wondered whether it is worth it to be part of Zambia. Next time there will be more fire. Believe me those guys are now going to re-organise. This is going to be another Sudan, until a referendum is held. The government should have first of all told the nation the truth as to what really happened and how things got to where they are today. Sending in Commandos to kill unarmed civilians is only nice if it is not your tribe they are goiung to kill!!!

    It is becoming even more evident that the selfish will always bring confusion. When other resources were coming from Southern province & others in terms of Agric production as bread basket there was no noise, the lamba’s copper supported the whole country including some of our selfish colleagues there was no problem and now the roumours of oil and the so called natural gas they want to “rule themselves”. Savimbi hard a similar dream but eventually he had his day, Mushala had his too, some Lozi individuals spearheading this will have their day too. Those chaps thowing stones are just being used by some very selfish Lozis who went to School for free subsidized by the money obtained from copper from the Lamba land.

  86. vote

    #113, #114, There is no hating of a tribe but infact it is the opposite, the Lozi people are everwhere in Zambia, including my home town in the far north and we live as brothers. But to hear people say that if you are not Lozi leave the province it is absurd to say the least. Any way you cannot take out a rooted selfish tenence out of an individual.

  87. vote

    This so called Pastor in the name of Muyangana Muyangana and his confused wife Grace are confusing the already illiterate Lozi people. That is why it is very difficult trusting so called Pastors these days, because they are in the forefront of agitating for violence all the time. Even in countries like Rwanda, Germany, it was the so called Pastors and Priests who were in the forefront of agitating for killings of fellow citizens.

    How can this man called Pastor Muyangana Muyangana be in the forefront of chasing Luvales, Mbundas from Western province when they are also members of his church? He is a worst tribalist from this land full of sand only!!!!!!

    Shame on you ignorant Lozis!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  88. vote

    On a second thought I thought I should advise some of my Lozi Colleagues agitating for cessation from the rest of Zambia at this late hour as follows;
    1.Organize yourselves form a development forum
    2. When the rumoured oil and Natural gas surfaces ask for social development fund contribution from the oil Co. in this case the Barotse oil Co. that has been given the rights to explore for those things in your province.
    3. Encourage some thugs from among the Lozi’s not to be violent as this is pure thuggery and has no place in modern civilization.
    4.Encourage some Lozi’s from dreaming that the only way of enjoying the money from the rumoured oil and natural gas is by ruling themselves.
    5.Stop calling your own police men and women terrorists because some of them are Lozi police.

  89. vote

    No 117 SHAKA OZ that kind of talk and derogatory remarks about tribes is what makes such confusion spread. we the zambian people need to be sober when talking to and about each other. this confusion will affect everyone, you in a foreign nation will be ridiculed, the lozis and non lozis. take a breather before you talk

    President Sata and The Post have nothing to do with mayhem in Mongu.Lozis have bottled up the anger for a long time and feelings of being cheated by MMD, despite voting for them,have started exhibiting.The blame should not fall on anyone but history which has been very unfair to people of Western Province.I feel violence is not an answer to such a problem.The answer is voting out MMD because it has not brought development to Western Province.If Westerners continue voting for a dead party in the name of MMD,they should not complain of underdevelopment.Another term for Movement of Mass Destruction,will create a big problem in Zambia.Let us rally behind other parties and we kick out this MMD.Otherwise,we will continue blaming each other for something which is straightforward.

    People need to understand that democracy does not mean violence. There are better ways of exercising freedom of speech. Violent demonstrations and looting of shops should not be tolerated. Our youth need to be educated on human rights and how to go about exercising that right in a civil way. It is sad that we are losing lives over land. One Zambia One Nation.

    There’s no hatred for Lozis in Zambia, on the contrary, it’s the Lozis who are saying non-Lozis should get out of Western Province – so who hates who here?
    As for the agitators, let them be told that there will not be any discussions with anybody regarding implementation of any agreement on a tribal basis. This is one country – One Zambia One Nation – finish and klaar!
    If by any chance oil gets to be found in Western Province, it will be used the same way other national resources from other provinces have been used – however, they have just been licensed to explore (search) and you cannot start counting your chicks before the eggs have even been laid.

    Part 4 of the Brotse 1964 effectively gives power to the Litunga to run the Western Province as a defacto governor of the area. This should run on the same lines as the UK where Northern Ireland has some extent of autonomy. Kaunda agreed and appended his signature to this part of the agreement but like Obote of Uganda did to the Kabaka on the Buganda Kingdom, he decided to bury this under the carpet. Perhaps he thought that with the passing of the old generation, the new children of Barotse would not know about this agreement.
    However I must agree that I don’t understand part 10. Can some one please explain to me?

  99. vote

    I think this is coming up due to poverty in that area and fair play for the people to fight for their freedom and development! needs! By the way, there is no way the lozi will claim CB and north western province! You will have to fight the Bembas, especially for CB! And also you ve got your brothers and sister scattered all over Zambia who have greatly benefited for all the good things this country has offered. Maybe Zambia need to introduce the “Premier” role in all the provinces where by all the provinces have the right to elct their own premier who will dictate the economic direction of the province and avoid the MMD dull folks! The premier of that province will decide which investors will come in and on what terms. Right now, we have a few people worshiping that fat git -RB!
