Litunga calls for development in Western Province

Rural News Litunga calls for development in Western Province

The Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) says the Litunga, Lubosi Imwiko II is determined to ensure that Western Province is developed through multi-sectorial investment approaches that could trigger employment for the local people.

BRE Ngambela (Prime Minister) Mukela Manyando says the Litunga is working round the clock to ensure that development is brought in the region in a bid to improve people’s livelihoods.

Mr Manyando said the Litunga is a development orientated traditional leader who is soliciting for development in Western Province through local and foreign investors hence his tour of districts such as Sikongo to explore developmental opportunities in the area.

The Ngambela said this in Sikongo when he addressed the residents who came to receive the Litunga at the royal arena in Sikongo district.

Meanwhile, the Ngambela has called on the Lozi people to continue preserving their culture and traditions.

At the royal arena, the Litunga was entertained by traditional dances that include Limba which is performed by women as well as cultural dances by Mboanjikana dancing troupe and the Green Buffaloes Cultural Group.

  1. We hear this everytime a new govt comes in ..as soon as the brown envelopes are delivered from Lusaka they will go quiet for another five years!!

  2. This government has no brown envelopes to give. This fellow may have get his ox-drawn cattle, and till the land for survival. The same should happen to Chitimukulu, Mpezeni, Monze, Mukuni and all the traditional rulers in Zambia

  3. AN OBJECTIVE ANALYSIS WOULD INDICATE THAT THE BIGGEST HURDLE TO DEVELOPMENT IN WESTERN PROVINCE IS THE VERY PERSON CALLING FOR DEVELOPMENT. TOO MUCH POWER IS VESTED IN THE FEUDALISTIC SYSTEM. ASK YOUR SELF WHY ARE OTHER PROVINCES MORE DEVELOPED?

  4. This initiative by the Litunga must be commended. His people need a lot of sensitization. Most ma Lozi aren’t enterprising because they believe that development will come by them being a British colony or protectorate. When ma Lozi see your business boom they’ll confront you that you were stealing their money, especially if you’re from other regions. Most businesses in Barotseland are owned by Luchazi, Chokwe and Mbunda. It’s even difficult to get land in Barotseland. I blame politicians and other activists for misleading them. What’s the GDP of Western province? It’s one of the lowest and ma Lozi share in the problem. They need to change their mind sets.
