Government has said that the issue of the Barotseland Agreement of 1964 will be resolved once President Edgar Lungu assents to the Constitution Bills Parliament passed recently.
Chief Spokesperson Chishimba Kambwili said that as far as government is concerned, once the Constitution Bills become law, Barotseland will continue to remain an integral part of Zambia.
Mr. Kambwili stated that this was particularly that no one submitted to the contrary that Barotseland remains part of Zambia during the Constitution review process.
Mr. Kambwili told Qfm News by telephone that this entails that the Barotseland Agreement of 1964 is no longer an issue.
Mr. Kambwili however, noted that what the people of Western province want is a fair share of the national development agenda.
Mr Kambwili said that the Patriotic Front (PF) is in this case committed to taking development to Western province as a sure way resolving the Barotseland Agreement issue.
