BRE denies assertions that it is selling the Barotse plain

General News BRE denies assertions that it is selling the Barotse plain

The Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) has dispelled accessions that it has sold the Barotse Flood Plains.

BRE Ngambela (Prime Minister) Manyando Mukela says it is untrue that the plain has been sold to the plain have been sold to the National Heritage Conservation Commission (NHCC) and the United Nations Education Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), respectively.

Disclosing this during a press briefing held at the Kuta Palace for the Litunga of Western Province in Limulunga District, the Ngambela said it was contrary to the Lozi custom to sell any part of the Barotse plain.

” If there are some individuals that were selling BRE land to others anywhere in Barotseland, then they were abrogating the Lozi tradition, ” he said.

The Ngambela maintained that the BRE has not agreed or signed anywhere with NHCC and UNESCO to enlist the Barotse Flood Plains to becomes a world heritage site as the issue was still under consideration.

He however said that all well-meaning Lozis are free to forward their opinions whether the Barotse Flood Plains can be enlisted by NHCC and UNESCO to become a world heritage site.

At the same press briefing, the BRE Ngambela (Prime Minister) Manyando Mukela says the royal establishment focuses a good rainfall during the 2021-2022 farming season.

The Ngambela appealed to the people of Barotseland to heighten preparations for this farming season so that they can harvest enough for their households.


  1. There is no smoke without fire. We need more clarification from the Ngambela. The statement is not very clear.

  2. Human beings are just amazing. They sell what they will not hold on to. Think of posterity as you exercise your desires and sometime greed. Some of you found and inherited what you are now squandering. Fo.ols will always be in abundance. Enough said.

  3. I see nothing wrong with selling the plains, particularly to our own National Heritage Conservation Commission or to UNESCO.

    That will not take away the Kuomboka, will it?

  4. What I personally know is that in order to buy any item the buyer knows how lucrative the item is, to bring him more profits than the capital he put in.
    Our people especially those in villages do not think deeper to analyse why someone could take interest in those plains, they are just blank like a plain paper.
    They can even sell themselves just as they used to sell their own people into slavery to Europeans .

  5. Selling the Barotse Plains?????? you must be joking, please read dont just say whtever comes to your white wahsed brins. Got to NHCC, BRE UNESCO and WWF and get the truth.

  6. Dont sell land anyhow..infact we need a land audit…any land under foreigners should revert to the commissioner of lands….

    No way you could secretly sell the Barotse Plains; Mbunga… you can only do this if you exterminating and wipe out the entire Lozi blood. Such is the attachment a Lozi has to the plains.

    However, listing them as a World Heritage is actually for the protection of the plains and benefit of it’s people… the UN are not into profitable business transactions, but preservation. As long as the people should still be free to fish and graze their own cattle and grow maize, I see no issues.

    The BRE should just come out and educate people and tell them the difference between a World Heritage and a sold land… the only catch if they say no one can be allowed to fish or graze animals… that a Lozi will be ready to d!e for and Mbikusita Lewenana and Siwina-wina and Silumelume will be…

  8. Hakuna muLozi ni yomukana ya sepa Kaongolo ka Nyambe ni manduna bakona to do the right thing, Kaufela bona ba busholi, bakaise.

  9. Let’s get our facts straight here there is no world heritage site that has been bought world wide, Vic fall is also UNWHS is it owned by anyone other that the govt of Zambia , no . what a world heritage site is , is a protected area because of its culture or plant, bird or wildlife diversity. any agreement is that it protected against development and destruction by people. so both the BRE and the Govt of Zambia still retain the land ownership. this is just fake news started by PF to cause people to get upset. I for one believe the area should be protected.
