The turn of events at Namuso is really worrying, we are wondering on how many times the BRE and the Litunga will be fooled by GRZ reviews concerned Indunas.
People who have convinced the Litunga to go back to PF government are Vice President Inonge wina, three Namuso Indunas from the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) in particular; Induna Lubasi Nalishuwa, Induna Batuke Lisulo and Induna Moowa Zambwe, who are well known for been ambiguous, treacherous and betrayers of the people of Barotseland.
This is what really happened.
The Litunga has closed the Pf/council stakeholders meeting indefinitely. The Litunga has been dribbled by Zambian president Edgar Lungu again that the two should just commence the BA’64 restoration talks as it is the only way to solve the current Barotseland problems according to him President Edgar Lungu. President Edgar Lungu held a private meeting with the Litunga on Tuesday last week in Lusaka where he said he was going to make some changes and give fully autonomy to Barotseland. President Lungu said he is renaming western province to Barotseland and he also apologised to the Litunga for his juniors roles they performed on sponsoring unrecognised chiefs.
Lungu informed the Litunga that Constitutional Amendment Bill will be presented in parliament very soon.
After the meeting, Litunga directed Lungu to start the Limulunga-Mongu road and that’s how the Avic has swiftly moved back to the site and started rehabilitation of the gravel and that construction of the road will soon commence. President Lungu also requested for the BRE to invite him to attend this year’s Kuomboka ceremony which is slated in April.
The Litunga come back to Barotseland on Wednesday last week and on Friday last week President Lungu sent his emissary to Limulunga Palace to go and convince him to halt the Pf/council stakeholders meeting on grounds that the meeting will just disturb the BRE/GRZ talks on BA’64.
President Lungu had sent the Mongu based provincial intelligence officer Mr. Bwalya Ng’andu and their meeting with the Litunga lasted for about 2hrs in kashandi, in their meeting there was only Induna Mukulwakashiko, Mr Mowa Zambwe and Ngambela Mukela Manyando wasn’t there and even himself, he is also shocked with the turn of events.
And just yesterday Induna Mukulwakashiko confirmed having met with the P.I.O.
Reports from some indunas claiming that the Litunga has got nothing to do with GRZ which you Barotseland Broadcasting Network reported yesterday its not true infact the Litunga is still with President Edgar Lungu and he is slowly going back to PF.
Even the recently trip of the Litunga to India where he spent almost two weeks was done at the facilitation of President Edgar Lungu.
Most of the Indunas are so shocked with the turn of events
