Chieftainess Litunga La Mboela of the Lozi people in Nalolo district of Western Province has appealed to government to consider rehabilitating her royal palace which is in a deplorable state.

The Chieftainess made the appeal during the coronation ceremony held at Nalolo Royal village South of the Zambezi banks.

The traditional ruler said the palace has weakened and with the heavy rains being experienced in the area the palace might collapse.

Meanwhile, Chieftaines Imwiko said her tradition royal court was closely working with KWATU, a non-governmental organization(NGO) in insuring that gender based violence (GBV) and child marriages were contained in the area.

She said as a champion against GBV and child marriages in the district, she will ensure that offenders are punished in accordance with the law.

And Provincial Permanent Secretary, Mwangala Liomba assured the traditional leader that government will ensure that her winter capital palace is rehabilitated.

Mr. Liomba said government will continue to work closely with the traditional leadership in the region in order to foster development.

He noted that chiefs are custodians of peace and tranquility in the nation hence government’s resolve to promote their welfare so that they continue to play their role in national development.

Mr. Liomba added that government will endeavor to support traditional ceremonies so that they can continue to serve as a channel for passing on traditions and norms to the younger generation.

  1. Go fund me is the way to go, Can any of her subjects here with connections to her advise and help her setup Go fund me!
    And then make sure to publicize the account.

  2. Whats wrong with country …everyone has to beg from the corrupt Politicians; why dont we have a trust to oversee these things!!

  3. Since we the people want to have two systems of government, the traditional one and the colonisers Republican government, represented by state house, here is a chance for her subjects to show their commitment to her culture. They should volunteer to repair her palace. That’s the way we lived before the white man arrived. Let’s show our commitment to our culture. If we want it to live

  4. Why are our chiefs always in the begging drive? I thought chiefs are supposed to be more innovative and therefore rich?

  5. The Lozi are very proud people, it’s a shame they have collectively failed to rehabilitate their Litunga LA Imboela’s palace. She’s the 2nd senior most Lozi after Litunga. I pledge 10 bags of Dangote Portland cement

  6. 1897 not refurbished from that time. Incredible. How she’s been omitted from the ongoing works going on on palaces?
