A MEMBER of the Western Province-based group calling itself ‘Newly-Formed Barotseland Liberation Army’ has been arrested by police on grounds of attempting to cause political instability in the region.

Inspector General of Police Kakoma Kanganja confirmed the arrest of the named official in an interview yesterday, but declined to divulge much information as investigations continue.

Mr Kanganja said the member, who was apprehended on Saturday, was currently in police custody in Western Province.

He warned the ‘army’ to beware that it was not in their interest to break the law.

The Barotseland liberation army has been distributing flyers indicating that politicians from outside the region would not be allowed to hold political gatherings there.

“So far one member of the Barotseland liberation army has been arrested, but I cannot release any further details as investigations into the matter are still on-going.

“This person was arrested during the course of yesterday (Saturday) and the nation will be informed in due course on the charges that they will face, but for now, this is all I can say,” Mr Kanganja said.

  1. Hichilema is very desperate. The chap is bringing up confusion everywhere. Arrest his rebels before he kills off the western province. Idyot

    • Fear of the unknown. A government on its way out always hallucinates about opposition doing this and that. All the energy will be wasted on chasing shadows until August 11th. VIVA HH…VIVA UPND. Keep them running around like rabid dogs!!

    • No we are not taking matters lightly. PF should just work on the liquidity in our economy as at the rate things are working out, we may soon seen Zim type of economy in Zed. Therefore, it is only prudent that Lungu and his team start working on the economy and not borrowing from morning to sunset.

  2. Barotseland has been creating structures of statehood since 2012. Just read the barotsepost to see how these guys have been daring the zambian govt.
    With the way Kadansa has been careless with national security while ignoring this boiling point, its just a matter of time before it explodes.

  3. @MrKudos every comment you post is engraved in broken hill font, your stone age thinking irks me. Curse the archaeologists that exhumed you.

  4. @Turu my dear do not duport negatives. you are a young and progrossve Zambians. Look at libya, Iraq and cyria if you cant learn anything from Congo DR. Zambia will be fine lets just be positive and transform our way of thinking and doing things. Lets ignore pipo like kakoma who think Zambians a babies who cant know the truth

  5. JEALOUSY DOWN BA PF. UNOMWAKA MULELILA. WHAT SO EVER YOU PLAN PEOPLE HAVE MADE THEIR CHOICE AND YOU CAN NOT CHEAT THEM.
    WHEN A COUPLE IS DIVORCING, ONE WILL JUSTIFY HIM OR HERSELF BUT THE TRUTH REMAIN TRUTH AND IT PAINS. PEOPLE HAVE REALIZED THE MISTAKE OF INKONGOLE TO MAKE PF LEADERSHIP RICH AND THEN A COMMON MAN WHO IS A VOTER REMAIN POORER.
    TWAKANA ING’ANDA YA NKONGOLE YANSALA. WE REFUSE TO BE BEGGARS BECAUSE OF DEBTS.

  6. FYABUFI, BUHATA, MAKULI, MULABEJA, MAKUDI, BUBELA , CHEATING THERE NOTHING LIKE THAT YOU JUST WANT TO CREATE POKER SO THAT YOU WILL SAY ZAMBIA IS IN DANGER FOR VOTES . PF KUYA BEBELE.

  7. @assage you have said the same thing on the other post. You are right I’m relatively young & progressive. I think a lot of the issues this country faces can be sorted out if only we had balls to stand up to them. Take Barotse issue for example. Kadansa in his first outing to ethiopia told us he was going to talk to them but what did he do. He chose to bribe the Litunga. He should have known those guys are bigger than their Litunga. What we need to do is to engage them at a serious level to understand their grievances. Arrests are cosmetic & won’t do.

  8. The peace we have enjoyed for 50 years. albeit under grinding poverty for the majority Zambian is about to be shattered with this relentless non-stop war-talk by Lungu and his henchmen. What thugs!

  9. I just focused on the dilapidated structure in the picture written “Police Post”. Over 50 years of independence we still have government structures that look like this? Yet the politicians are busy fighting each other and lying to people about development. I suggest that ADS 100 and SS 120 must be compulsory courses for all MPs and politicians. That is if these introductory courses are still being offered at UNZA.
    Anyway Seers, says ” development is a multi-dimensional process which is both qualitative and quantitative”. this is lesson number 1 to all politicians.

    • @Chester, you are right. Not only are they dilapidated. They lack maintenance, which is a very clear hallmark of Zambian mindsets. When something is newly installed it will only look good for a short while until it falls into disrepair. The remedial measures are always more expensive than both maintenance and initial building costs respectively…

  10. @itizi turu your comments are pathetic, why call the president Kadansa? It is actually HH who is Kandasa as was called by Nawakwi because he always dances at rallies.As for the BLA I think it is time some one pumped some sense in those pipo, we want the peace we have enjoyed to continue.What engangement do they want and what grievance do they have? They were crying for development, PF is doing just that now what! Mind you not all Lozis support what these disgrantled trouble makers are doing. They need to be caged before they cause more trouble.

    • What development is there in WP? The site of Sata’s stadium is still a bush. And the fake university is still a pipedream. The trouble with iddiots who believe that because they control the army then they can fcuk everybody is that they do not look at Afghanistan, Syria, Yemen, DRC or even Mozambique. You do not need an army to grind a country to a halt.

  11. Castrate this LOZI ***** . Such trouble makers should not be given any space to cause trouble. Such FOOLS are tarnishing the good LOZIs who love peace.

  12. [email protected] my dear PF has tried to please lozi people. Go there and look at infrustructural development which PF strong holds have not seen. Lungu has given them VP and cabinet ministers. What else do you want him to. Lozis are our relatives. We are one body no one can let an important part of the body like lozis to go.

    • Wina is VP for herself and her family. Millions of Lozis do not ride in her motorcade or eat the steaks she consumes at govt expense. Wina does not pay school fees for Lozis. As for development, what development? Even the Mongu-Kalabo Road was funded by MMD before 2011. All Wina had to do is to ensure that Sata and his crooks did not divert the money to Muchinga, like they did for Bottom Road.
      #ChagwaMustFall

  13. Lozis one time said they want development and PF is doing that. Libya, cyria and Iraq started like that hoping it will bring happness are they happy?

    • And the govts in those places thought since they controlled all the armies and money they could ride roughshod over their own people. Now they are governing over ruins.
      #ChagwaMustFall

  14. Can you count the developmental projects which are there? Even when you give a few ministerial positions how will the perform in such a corrupt government?

  15. These BLA *****s are charting the way for terrorist groups such as al-Shabaab to operate in Zambia. Al-Shabaab and others may take a keen interest in training and arming these BLA terrorists, as they will consider them to be their brothers with a common agenda. The State must ruthlessly deal with these criminals who want to put this nation on fire. The Government is already addressing the concerns of the Western Province with regard to development. These outlaws, just like the UPND over the constitution, are now trying to change the goal post.

  16. @Buck teeth lungu you sound like one of them but you are hiding because you are a coward, just show your names and you will be smoked out! Havent you seen development in WP? Pipo were using 4 wheel drive old land rover 209s as taxis because of sandy township roads in Mongu, but that is the thing of the past because township roads have tarmac now so even cars can move, we have shopping malls for the first time and you say nothing has been done. Even if WP province is developed like London you still wont appreciate because that is the nature of UPND cadres, but I know not all lozis can belong to that terrorist group only a few selfish and disgrantled elements like Mr Clement Sinyinda can do that.

  17. these Fox failed to fought for their own independence from colonial masters and today after 51 years of independence that’s when they want to fight our mother Zambia? I say hell no, u are just ungrateful *****s, educated for nothing

  18. Why do people accuse HH in some of these things the man is too clean we know PF want him to be complicated in some of this nonsense but he is too busy for that.
