Mongu deaths sadden Banda

Share

File: Rupiah Banda talking to journalists

President Rupiah Banda has expressed sadness at the loss of life in Mongu and has warned politicians against taking advantage of the Barotse Agreement debate to gain political mileage.

Speaking to journalists at City Airport yesterday before leaving for the Luapula MMD provincial conference, President Banda regretted the two deaths that occurred following last Friday’s protests in Mongu.

The president said it was wrong for some politicians to take advantage of the Barotse Agreement issue when such a matter was conclusively dealt with in 1964.

“It is sad that two lives had to be lost but may I caution here that politicians should not take advantage of the Barotse Agreement debate to advance their political ambitions. People should not fish in troubled waters,” Mr Banda said.

He said the violence in Mongu was uncalled for and assured that the Government would ensure it maintained peace in the area.

President Banda said it was the responsibility of the Government to ensure that Zambia remained together.
He said it was sad that some people in Mongu got carried away to engage in violence that left a trail of destruction to property.

“There was no need for throwing stones or breaking property when the police were there to maintain law and order. The police are on the ground right now talking to people there and urging them not to be violent,” President Banda said.

On Friday, two people among them a child were killed while several others sustained gunshot wounds in a confrontation between the police and advocates of the secession of Western Province.

More than 100 were arrested in connection with the protest and the Government warned that culprits risked being charged with treason.

And Kalulushi Patriotic Front (PF) MP Anson Simama and his Wusakile counterpart Barnabas Chella condemned politicians who were taking advantage of the Barotse Agreement to gain political mileage ahead of this year’s general elections.

The two Parliamentarians said in separate interviews after seeing off President Banda to Luapula that the violence in Mongu was uncalled for and culprits should face the law.

“The issue of the Barotse Agreement is a dead issue, it was dealt with at independence. It is sad that two lives were lost in Mongu but we urge people there to remain peaceful,” Mr Simama said.

Mr Chella said the Church and every peace-loving Zambians should condemn and speak against the Mongu violence.

“It is sad that some politicians want to gain political mileage out of the Barotse Agreement and President Banda must take charge and guard against falling into their trap because they just wanted to destabilise the Government.

Mr Chella said President Banda should remain on firm ground in protecting Zambia from any hooliganism.
He urged Mongu residents to remain peaceful and was happy that the Government had assured that peace would continue to prevail not only in Mongu but in Zambia as a whole.

Others that saw off the president were ministers of Defence, Kalombo Mwansa, Mkhondo Lungu for Home Affairs and other senior Government and party officials. Works and Supply Minister, Mike Mulongoti, Parliamentary Chief Whip Vernon Mwaanga and MMD chairperson Michael Mabenga accompanied the president.

  1. The price paid for being insensitive to national issues. The blood of the departed will always cry from the ground just like Abels blood cried to the almighty God. You will forever be haunted as long as you pay a blind eye. Few weeks ago you said there is nothing in WP and now why this time you say you are saddened? after fyachitika? Panji has given you a timely warning and all you do is rap him

  2. I am one of the critic of President Banda, but on this issue of western province, i give you my support Mr. President. Well done, because the illiterate Lozis who are being used to cause havoc, have never been to a Boma let alone an urban area as a result they are causing all these troubles.

    Mwe ba Lozi mwaba ukulya Isamba (crocodile like Lizard).
    Lozis should be the last tribe to cause these troubles because they saw how Angolans trekked to Zambia in search of refugee. Western province borders Angola.

    For Zambians in the diaspora we are proud of Zambia and sell to investors to invest in Zambia because of the unique peace we have.

    Lozis please hear this, we don’t want to fight. CAN’T YOU BE PROUD OF Nalumino Mundia (that true nationalist Zambian), who worked with Kapwepwe.

  3. Hypocrite! you think you can solve issues by being quiet, you have blood and your hands and God will ask for it. is it true there is witchcraft in this country, I wish some of it can be experimented on this thick skinned buffoon and his minions!

  4. Alabee dont seize to amaze me, u had an opportunity to dialogue and reason with thes poor Loziz, but u downplayed it, it wasnt that serious acording to ur analysis. It was being exagerted! The issue deserved a serious attention 4rm u, but u decied to fly instead – u cud’v been more serious! And I dont know waht the PF leader has to say about this, because he was ready to ‘camp in western province’ and help the Black bulls/fools. Zed politicians, are a bunch of jokers!

    #3. what these villagers are fighting for (though using a wrong fomula) is the neccesities. so jst being proud of Nalumino will not feed their children nor giv them jobs. yours politicians are jst greed and donot care for the poor!

  5. #1 & 2 CHE GUAVARA. Please don’t mix your ignorance and the Bible. Che Guevara did not believe in the Bible but Communism. The Bible can not justify what Lozi people are doing to other tribes in Western province, that is chasing other tribes like Luvales, Mbundas e.t.c, because these tribes are also members of the Churches in western province. The Bible does not justify discrimination of other people on the basis of tribe, NO!!!!

    If it was your 90-year-old man who telling illiterate young Lozis believe that they would be bulletproof if they use his charms and end up facing the police out of ignorance like the way LENSHINA deceived the people of Chinsali in the 1960s (but at least it is justifiable because people at that time they were not learned, not this time). SHAME!!

  6. The deaths uncalled for. The baroste agreement has no OPTION for secceeding. Those trying to those lines the MMD (in order for them to go into Wesyern province with an iron hand) and some disgruntalled pipo are mistaken. I know for a fact Zambia is like a big shanty, very under-developed. But the situation in Western Province is unique. The majority of the population there have very little do do. Un-employment is rife, no colleges nor industries. hence their cries is for Jobs to sustain themselves. Road net work is pathetic. hence the riot and revolt against even the Litunga.

  7. Hypocrite! you think you can solve issues by being quiet, you have blood on your hands and God will ask for it. is it true there is witchcraft in this country, I wish some of it can be experimented on this thick skinned buffoon and his minions!

  8. 1,2 and 5 you have strong points. Government was saying they are dialoguing with the BRE. But no one knows what they were discussing. What should people believe? Its very sad indeed.

  9. # 5 Anti-Politics. Using a wrong formula is wrong altogether!!! The best these villagers can do is use what Nalumino did band up with other tribes like Kapwepwe from Bemba land to fight for their rights. There are other avenues to use than what is being used.

  10. shameless politicians like HH want to lure votes by siding with ndungamdambo. HH if you were president would you allow this uprising, burning of innocent pipos cars, looting shops and touching gas stations. HH would you allow non speaking lozis to be expelled out of western province. HH you have no balls except a lot of bush on your pubic area going by your afro. the blood of those two who died lies on the hands of you who try to support what is abominable its treason to try and break one zambia one nation

  11. #9 go and ask His Higness the Litungu, he knows what they discussed with the government, that is why he and the BRE are not involved in these nonsense fracas.

  12. YOUR PRESIDENT IS STILL LIVING IN DENIAL. THE REALITY IS THAT THE UNION WITH BEMBA-DOMINATED ZAMBIA HAS & SHALL NEVER WORK ESPECIALLY WITH THEIR THIEVING & SUPERIORITY COMPLEX. @ #3 SHAKA OF OZ, U INSULT THE LOZIS “Mwe ba Lozi mwaba ukulya Isamba (crocodile like Lizard)”, & YET U WANT THEM TO BE PART OF YOUR FAILED STATE ZAMBIA.
    WHAT SELLING OF ZAMBIA ARE U DOING IN DIASPORA WHEN U R CLEANING TOILETS & SWEEPING STREETS? OR WORSE WORKING IN OLD PEOPLES HOMES!

  13. This is how trivial this man can be,,,he regrets the killings,well and good,next thing he brings in the opposition.The problem hasnt gone away,its still there,these guys may just regroup with a different strategy,what has your administration done to find a lasting solution mr president.Blaming the opposition wont help.The opposition will always take advantage of any opportunity that presents itself in order to win support

  14. #14. This is the problem. Much as am not a Bemba, Bembas have never had a superiority complex never in the history of Zambia.

    The problem with Zambians like #14 s’lu who sound like a rude Lozi, is that we don’t search and understand our Zambian history.

    Kaunda was rumored to be a Bemba (out of propaganda) when in fact he was from Malawi, yet because he was born in Chinsali people thought he was a Bemba. Prime Ministers during Kaunda era came from Western,North Western, Southern, and Eastern provinces. And a Bemba was only once a vice president. And Chiluba is not Bemba but a Chishinga from Luapula, Bembas come from Northern Province not Luapula.

    #14 s’lu, you need to be ashamed of your ignorance. The real Bemba are down to earth Zambians. WHY DO YOU HATE Bembas FOR NO…

  15. Mr. President, Bob Marley was killed by a small sore on one of his toes. Please do not belittle the WP situation. Abandon your trips and try to spend some time on this issue. Those people advising you such as Dora Siliya will never tell you truth because they are afraid they may lose their jobs.

  16. #14 s’lu You said that, “BEMBA-DOMINATED ZAMBIA HAS & SHALL NEVER WORK ESPECIALLY WITH THEIR THIEVING.”
    Why do we have Prisons in Western (so called Barotseland)? Is it for innocent people or for criminals Lozis who have engaged in criminal acts like stealing (thieving) using guns (through their Karavinos)?

    We have Lozi leaders who have been sentenced for stealing Constituency Development Funds, are these Bembas or from the so called Barotseland where, people like #14 s’lu thinks all are innocent?

    One day in Zambia, I meet a Lozi who told me that there is no prostitutes in Barotseland, but yet we read about the high HIV/AIDS rate in western province. Does these HIV/AIDS all Lozi people who are HIV/AIDS +VE, get it through innocent means. Though some are innocent.

  17. When former president for life Kamuzu “Ngwazi” Banda, close aide John Tembo and notorious mistress Kazamira Tembo were finally hauled before a court to answer charges of murdering four prominent politicians in 1983, this is the first question Judge Bikitu Qoto posed to John Tembo and Kazamira just five minutes into the Ngwazi’s cross examination, and quote: “For how long has this been going on?” The Ngwazi was clearly senile and it did not need a psychiatrist to verify him as such. Now, check Bwezani’s statement in the third paragraph above, and quote: “Barotse Agreement issue when such a matter was conclusively dealt with in 1964.” So where is the problem with restoring it? I swear that monkey Urine on the skull has demented someone, Banda, like Banda, is senile!!!!

  18. #16, I agree with you completely and having worked with abena Lubemba koko, I have come to respect them and distinguish them from stinking thieves from a certain province who masquerade as Bemba and plunder in the Bemba name.

  19. #18 Forget this #14. He is just bitter that Bemba has become the most spoken language in Zambia. Here we have a serious issue and the chap#14 is adding salt to injury.

  20. UNTIL RECENTLY, I USED TO THINK SAKALA WAS A BEMBA NAME. THEY’VE STOPPED USING “NATOLA-FYE” WHEN THEY ARE CAUGHT STEALING BUT NOW USE “UBOMBA MWIBALA ALYA MWIBALA” TO JUSTIFY THEFT. @ SHAKA, FOR YOUR INFORMATION, BAROTSELAND WAS THE ONLY PLACE IN SOUTHERN AFRICA WITH A MODERN JUSTICE SYSTEM (THE KUTA), EVEN BEFORE THE WHITE MAN CAME. THATS WHY THE BRITONS CHOSE TO MAKE IT A PROTECTORATE & THE REST OF ZAMBIA A COLONY.

  21. I thought when our dear president went to Western Province,he told us that the opposition was creating a situation which was not in existence?How come he is saddened with loss of life?I urge our president to be very wary of his leadership.He is extremly detouched from the feelings of the masses.He should not be cheated by his advisors.They are digging his grave and digging it even deeper.He should put his ears to the ground and listen to the cries of people.People are fed up with his leadership style.He is only entertaining criminals at the expense of those who voted for him.Mr President,leave those criminal and please people who gave you a mandate over them.Those criminal will not be there for you when time to give an account comes.It is not too late for you to listen to us.

  22. when the nation needed your comment you never commented but travelling. instead of saying that it was wrong for a police to kill, you attack innocent politicians, what about your cabinet minister? nonsense, only insane people who will vote for mmd.

  23. No.6 SHAKA OZ //

    You’re not correct. No Lozi is chasing Mbunda or Luvale sure not now. They have lived together in harmony for hundreds of years. The State Machinary should know the truth. But its not a good tactic to divide pipo on tribal lines by planting the seeds of hatred. Remember Governments come and go but society should progress in harmony. God appoints leaders for each time and dismisses them at the right time. Remember Nebukadnezer, when God said Mene mene tekel. Dialogue and prayer are the only answers in the Barotseland case, not guns.

  24. #25 Slu
    Britain did not choose Barotseland to be its protectorate,rather the then Litunga applied or rather sought protection from the British.Get the fact right and NOT the oral tradition full of distortion.In-fact Great Britain was never interested hence granting a royal chater to BSAC(Cecil Rhodes).

  25. The president has unfortunately trivialised the crisis in WP not realising that this is his test case which might haunt him for the rest of his life. Like Col Panji warned the worst is yet to come if we become careless. It is unbelievable that some sections of Zambia are celebrating and congratulating the administration and the police for the cold blooded murders of unarmed youths simply because they are Lozi. It’s disgraceful! Remember, a crisis can occur in any part of Zambia irrespective of tribe.

  26. #32
    Sharp Shooter- HAVE YOU ACTUALLY read the agreement? If read what is contained in Part 4 you will ask yourself what made KK agree to those contents and the answer will be whant #25 slu has said. Try for a minute to find out how the contents were arrived at and why?

  27. This is a very sensitive issue. Those Lozi’s are being sucrificed by some selfish politicians. I dont support RB but I agree that culprits should actually be charged for treason. Who told you that Zambia is for Lozi’s or any other tribe? We have many tribes no wonder people should not promote tribalism. It will never work coz we are identified only by country and not tribe. All peace loving Zambians should not support leaders who are supporting this call. There is no issue to discuss period. Just stop electing selfish leaders who can’t develop your area. Believe me war will make you much more of a destitute than you are now. Wake up!!!!!!!

  28. #30 You may well be correct in your assertion that the govt is trying to divide the people of w province. However, there are voices from the other ethnic groups that do not support the 1964 agreement. Their voices can not be ignored. Additionally, to what extent is this uprising supported by the majority of Lozi people themselves? Without opinion polls it is difficult to be fully and correctly informed of the people of the province. The fact is the govt is in discussions with the BRE. I think to be fair, the govt should also be in discussion with representatives of the other ethnic groups as well as it would be folly to let what might be a vocal and militant minority to dictate events.

  29. #14 Some Lozi chaps see all their grievances as caused by Bembas. We are innocent. But we are well aware of your hatred for us. This is not a new development. From as long ago as pre-independence days, Bemba people could not freely move in western province. As a Bemba you ventured into western province at your own risk. These has been the sad reality from our Lozi countrymen. Intermarrying with them hasn’t proved a catalyst for improved relations. Their hatred has simply been compounded and aggravated. There isn’t a problem in western province that doesn’t inevitably suck in the Bembas. When are you people going to outgrow this mental malady? I am Bemba, from Kasama, and I speak for all Bembas when I say, we have absolutely nothing against Lozi people. Inferiority complex is your…

  30. #32 SHARP-SHOOTER, U R RIGHT. BECHUANALAND (BOTSWANA) WAS THE FIRST TO BE GRANTED PROTECTORATE & AT THE ADVISE OF THE TSWANA KING KHAMA III, THE LITUNGA APPLIED FOR PROTECTORATE MAINLY DUE TO THE THREAT OF THE MATEBELE IN ZIM WHO KEPT RAIDING OUR LIVESTOCK. OUR TSWANA FRIENDS HAVE THRIVED FROM BEING THE POOREST NATION AT INDEPENDENCE TO BEING ONE OF THE FASTEST GROWING ECONOMIES IN THE WORLD BECAUSE OF WISE LEADERSHIP. IM JUST IMAGINING WHAT WOULD HAVE HAPPENED IF BOTSWANA HAD FORMED ONE COUNTRY WITH THE THIEVING BEMBA-DOMINATED ZAMBIA!!!! SAME STORY OF UNDER-DEVELOPMENT, SELF-AMASSING OF WEALTH VIA CORRUPTION

  31. #35 yes, gud observation. He speakng as if it was a natural disaster, and he didnt even condemn the poooolish for taking the life of a poor guy. I have no kind word for these greed politicians. They make promises that they dont even pretend to be fulfiling. shame on them. the sadedst part is that this killing/presence of pooooooooolish has done nothing to solve the problem, poor/retired alabeee! These old folks are not custodians of wisdom, and the world is dynamic, so u cant just be recycling these old guys, it doesnt help our poor country in any way.

  32. Deja Vu
    I have read the document(BA64) and with my limited legal knowledge learned that its only the Litunga and his Kuta who are suppose to engage Lusaka(Govt) via the High court and NOT the subjects if they are not happy with the union.If the Litunga finds no case,then its a non starter and the rest of westerners(not just Lozis) will have to hustle like the rest of us.This thing of lack of dev. is everywhere.Infact UNDP lists Luapula as the poorest province and Luapulans or let alone Mwata Kazembe has and will never use the language of secession.

  33. #38 Wantanshi, You are very right. Its all to do with inferiority complex and jealousy by some of our Lozi relatives.
    These people should be well aware that the Bemba language or cibemba is the most widely spoken language in Zambia even in comparison to the english language.
    Take it or leave it, you have to use cibemba to get around Zambia or you’ll be lost. Cibemba is the lingua franca for Zambia.

  34. Barotse Agreement 1968

    9. Interpretation
    Any question concerning the interpretation of this Agreement may be referred by the Government of the Republic of Zambia to the High Court of the Republic for consideration (in which case the opinion thereon of the Court shall be communicated to that Government and to the Litunga of Barotseland and his Council) and any such question shall be so referred if the Litunga, acting after consultation with his Council, so requests.

  35. Name calling is uncalled for. a soft answer turns away wrath. we can build or destroy eachother. just becoz someone doesnt think or act according to wat you think is right does not mean that they are inferior to you. lets respect eachother.

  36. Nonsense breeds sense, theyhad nonsense in voting mmd, now let sense to prevail between the government and western people. Vote for Rupiah in 6 months time and make sense.Hopeless citizens you like salt and chitenge during campagns enjoy the fruits now. He told you point blank that i did not tell you to vote for me that statement still need to make sense to all Zambians?

  37. HISTORICALLY THE BEMBA WERE PLUNDERERS WHO WOULD WAIT FOR SURROUNDING TRIBES TO GROW THEIR FOOD & RAID THEIR GRAIN STORAGE AREAS AFTER THE HARVEST. NOTHING HAS CHANGED TO THIS DAY, THATS WHY KK (A BEMBALIZED MALAWIAN) STOLE THE £78MILLION FROM BAROTSELAND, FTJ STOLE FROM POOR PEOPLE, SATA’S ONLY MOTIVATION IS TO HAVE HIS SHARE OF THE LOOT. BEMBAS ARE VERY SIMILAR IN BEHAVIOUR TO THEIR BROTHERS, THE KASAI’S OF CONGO DR. BEMBA IS MORE THAN A LANGUAGE, ITS A CULTURE. EVEN MY COUSINS WHO GREW UP ON THE C/BELT HAVE BEMBA BEHAVIOUR.

  38. #41
    Sharp Shooter- I am very impressed with your answer. Now you mention the part which allows only the Litunga to engage GRZ, very well but I am forced to believe that the Subjects have opted to take the matters in their own hand because of these 2 reasons- A) KK failed to observe the very document he had signed and further demoted the Litunga to member of Unip Central Committe. 2) Of late the MMD has taken a mocking stance on the issue.

  39. #38 and #42 – I’m Lozi myself but have never hated Bembas. My best friend is very Bemba, and we both condem what is happenning in Western Province and that a reasonable solution should be found. I think it is wrong to generalise based on a tiny minority. I know some Bembas who are bad, just like some Lozis, Tongas, Ngonis, etc. There are some human beings who are just bad, irrespective of what tribe they are. But I will not generalise about a tribe. Also the idea of bringing tribalism everytime there is a social problem is wrong. The truth is the Barotse Agreement exists, top Lawyers from other provinces including Bembaland have said that. It was silly for the government to just sit and wait for the problem to fester. As for the Bemba language, what is important is to communicate.

  40. RB ..you are always flying man..why big mpuno? Sometimes you should sit and do work in your office. Anyway fly well man.

  41. Very sad indeed….it seems its a crime to be born Lozi……….its as if to be born in another tribe or skin would have been better. Sad about the hatred , evil directed to the Lozis now and for this agreement one its as if it shouldnt really have happened especially that it was Lewanika who signed it better if it was chitimukulu or mpezeni or rather chief Monze coz the apprehesion is so much …..today a good friend of mine was so pissed with this agreement that he says his chiefs were not part of it and for him the death of the people is very justified which i see even among the bloggers.

    what i know is the 1964 BA stands and unless its handled rest assured we are in for trouble, coz people of western province will keep on greiving over it. Lets live in peace and harmony…

  42. #39 s’lu. I conclude that you are a racist disguised as a Lozi tribalist with wrong information obtained through deceit like the way the failed Australian White policy,children in this country grew with a wrong perception of other races that they are inferior to them.

    Your thinking is wrong, there is no history in Zambia which has been taught to us that the Bemba people forced their language on us Zambians. A BIG NO!!!!!!!! Neither did the Bemba teach Loziz to steal nor kill using Karavinos!!!

    s’lu you need to change your bad attitude of being a BLOOD TRIBALIST. A long time ago, if you are working with a Lozi person they will abuse you badly and use Lozi/Luena language instead of our National language ENGLISH. And s’lu you call this FAIR?

    We are Zambians

  43. SHAKA OZ , DONT COMPARE AUSSIE ISSUE TO BAROTSELAND, CIRCUMSTANCE R DIFFERENT. BEMBAS DIDNT FORCIFULLY IMPOSE THEIR LANGUAGE ONTO ZAMBIANS, BUT VIA THEIR EN-MASSE MIGRATION TO LAMBALAND (C/BELT) & RECENTLY AFTER FTJ WAS ELECTED & MOVED TO LSK, THE THIEVES ALSO FOLLOWED THEIR GURU EN-MASSE. TODAY THE STREET LINGO IS LSK & THE WAY OF THINKING PATTERN OF LSK RESIDENTS IS NOW TO STEAL & STEAL BIG WHEN U GET THE OPPORTUNITY. WHEN A BEMBA SPEAKS BEMBA TO ANOTHER IN PUBLIC ITS NO PROBLEM, BUT WHEN A LOZI DOES THE SAME, THEN ITS AN ISSUE. NOW TELL ME WHO IS TRIBALIST BETWEEN THE TWO? IF TWO FRENCHMEN SPEAK FRENCH TO ONE ANOTHER U R THE FIRST ONE TO ADMIRE THEM & ENCOURAGE THEM, BUT FOR A LOZI ITS A PROBLEM!! TAKE YOUR ZAMBIA & LEAVE US WITH OUR BAROTSELAND!!!! WATER & OIL CANNOT MIX!!!!!

  44. shakas or whateva your name is, learn to keep quiet if you have nothing to share. you don’t even know what you are saying. you don’t know BAROTSELAND. yes lwaca li opani coz thats what our rich Kingdom can give. you eat rats and all sorts of insects coz dats what your land can give. REST IN PEACE TO ALL THE 7 SHOT AND KILLED BY YOUR PRESIDENT BWEZANI. A QUICK RECOVERY TO OVER 10 STRUGLING WITH BULLETS IN THE HOSPITAL

  45. #52, Bo s’lu, I am a true proud Zambian with both legs in Zambia and no where to run to in case of trouble. If Lozis like you, stop their arrogance and through humility teach their language to all us Zambians then that is fine. Not through hatred and arrogance, ignore and abuse other tribes by using their language which they can not understand.
    Lamba people are great people and should not be taken by the Lozis that they are their subjects like slaves, NO!!!! Lambas produced a great Zambian president in the name of Mwanawasa, but alas if it was a Lozi like s’lu, Zambia could have suffered from SEVERE TRIBALISM and could have been experienced civil strife.
    From you statements a psychologist can just diagnose you with SEVERE HATRED OF INNOCENT BEMBAS & TRIBALISM FROM AN INFERIOR…

  46. Zedians are just s#$%T what we should be advocating for is colonisation with human rights instead of bickering bout BA64. Seriously because even when the colonial government was externalizing our copper dollars, they still built us the Copperbelt and Lusaka plus more, and now? when Negroes took over? everything is just breaking down even without anyone stealing our copper………or atleast taking it by force. Please lets start a campaign for the west to come and re-colonize us while respecting our human rights and equality before the law because while am ashamed to admit it, we have clearly failed. and non of these other old dudes have a clear plan for our future.

  47. #53, where did you come from, I thought you are going to put sense in Bo s’lu? I am saddened by the death of my fellow innocent Zambians who were misled by disgruntled and selfish Lozi tribalist to participate in things that His Royal Highness The Litunga and the BRE could have addressed with the Zambian government.

    Mind you it is not a Bemba who is now our Zambian president who is showing a non partisan between Bemba and Lozis alike. It is President Banda from Eastern Province.
    If it is a Bemba currently occupying plot one (State House), then Lozis like Bo s’lu would have a case to express their SWORN HATRED of innocent the Bemba people, but it is someone from Eastern province.

  48. So your president thinks that the BA64 was resolved in 1964. This is were he’s wrong, just shows how ignorant he is about the agreement. If he is still president after the election then he will chock on his words. We are not giving up on what is legal. Watch this space

  49. HEY PIPO DONT THINK RB HAS SOLVED THIS PROBLEM THE FACT IS THAT THE PROBLEM IS THERE EVEN MALARIA MAY SEEM TO DISAPPEAR WHEN ONE TAKES PANADO.WATCHOUT FOR SOMETHING BIG.

  50. Your articles were so good. After browsing your blog???I have benefited greatly~~~~Hope you can create more splendid works~~ have a good content of articles~~~so that we can often browse them~~~~.
