Government wants UNESCO to list the Barotse Flood plains as a world Cultural Landscape.

Minister of Arts and Tourism Ronald Chitotela says once this is done, tourists will be attracted to visit the area which will in turn promote tourism and job creation for people in Western province.

He said this when he officiated at the consultative meeting with Members of Parliament from Western Province on the proposed nomination of the Barotse plains as a world cultural landscape.

Mr. Chitotela noted that the nomination of the area will enhance the preservation of cultural traditions and customs contrary to speculation that the nomination will take land away from the people.

And speaking on behalf of the Barotse Royal Establishment Ngambela Mukela Manyando said the establishment will continue engaging stakeholders on the matter.

Meanwhile, National Heritage and Conservation Commission Executive Director Collins Chipote said his organization wants to preserve key natural resources for the benefit of the people.

  1. I am glad Western Province is appreciating the developmental agenda this government has done! Thank you Mr. Lungu and Madam Inonge. Let’s develop this thing! The boy is UNELECTABLE and TRIBO.

  2. Mr Chitotela seriously with the current happenings concerning the Mukula trees,Forest 27 and the lower Zambezi do you think environmental organizations can support this idea?The idea is good but the timing and the current happenings make it impossible

  3. The Barotse Flood Plains is a picturesque landscape that will add value to local international tourism. The long bridge across the Zambezi River and its pristine wetland ecosystem is an engineering infrastructure which will also feature as an additional economic link for Zambia and Angola.

  4. Another opportunity to embezzle cash from the government through feasibility studies and dubious contracts . This Chitotela thing smells corruption all the way down his smelly undersomething!
    The case is still open mind you. We shall come for your bolls. Just watch the space.
