The Church of Barotseland, what happened to it? Will it be restored? - Opinion

The church of Barotseland had its origins in the work of the Paris Evangelical Mission (PEM) with its mainly French and Swiss missionaries whose mission had been in Lesotho for many years, and by the 1870s they saw possibilities in working north of the Zambezi with people who, because of the population shifts of the 19th century, were familiar with the Sotho language. After expeditions by the famous pioneer missionary Francois Coillard to Barotseland, a mission station was established abou...

Barotseland Needs Visionary Leadership - Saleya Kwalombota

Leadership is more than just a word; it is the act of leading. Time enlightened “leadership” is guiding, leading by the right example, demonstrating genuine and deep caring for those they lead, team building, and have a clear vision of the task to be accomplished. There is no one actual or accurate definitive definition of leadership. Rost (1991) presented the idea of “defining” leadership, yet noted that there is still no real agreement about what leaders...

Zambia's independent and privately owned television, MUVI TV, has reported that over one hundred and fifty youths are said to have lost their jobs in 'Western' Province after the Zambian government decided to reverse their appointments.

Every Mondays and Fridays at 17:00hrs to 17:15hrs, let’s commit Barotseland in prayer. The Lozis in the Army and police working with our foes, you can say your prayers silently in your hearts. God has already answered our prayer so we need to thank him as much as we can.

 

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO)  has now admitted the nation state of Barotseland as a member.

For any entity to be a member of UNPO, they have to be a Nation or People, possessing the will to be identified as a Nation or People and are bound to a common heritage which can be historical, racial, ethnic, religious or territorial. The prospective participant can also be a section of a People, constituting a minority, living on a portion of its ancestral territory, incorporated into a State other than a State represented by that People.

Last year two other International bodies recognized Barotseland as a sovereign member state. The Federation of Free States of Africa (www.africafederation.net) and the Union of Free States (www.unfs.org)

The Unrepresented Nations and Peoples Organization (UNPO) is an international, nonviolent, and democratic membership organisation. Its members are indigenous peoples, minorities, and unrecognised or occupied territories who have joined together to protect and promote their human and cultural rights, to preserve their environments, and to find nonviolent solutions to conflicts which affect them.
 
Although the aspirations of UNPO Members differ greatly, they are all united by one shared condition – they are not adequately represented at major international fora, such as the United Nations. As a consequence, their opportunity to participate on the international stage is significantly limited, as is their ability to access and draw upon the support of the global bodies mandated to defend their rights, protect their environments, and mitigate the effects of conflict.
 
In today’s world where over 90 percent of conflicts are intra-state, UNPO has been established to fill this gap, providing an international forum through which its Members can become effective participants and contributors to the international community. In an increasingly interdependent world it is ever more important that those who continue to be denied their rights or remain excluded be given an opportunity to present their case. UNPO works therefore to address the consequences of marginalisation, working with its Members to promote their democratic causes, to provide information, and to articulate creative and nonviolent strategies for progress, above all however, UNPO works to ensure their voices are heard.
 
Founded in 1991 at the Peace Palace in The Hague, UNPO is unique as an international organisation in that it is built entirely by its Members. Through this strong connection to those suffering the consequences of the exclusion the organisation seeks to address, UNPO has since grown into a prominent and respected international forum.
 
UNPO’s membership has also grown steadily from its original fifteen founders, representing now almost 70 Members worldwide. Although the work of UNPO adapts continually to meet the challenges of its Members and the nature of the international political climate, each Member remains committed to respecting the five principles enshrined in the UNPO Covenant: nonviolence, human rights, democracy and self-determination, environmental protection, and tolerance.
 
UNPO remains committed to offering an increasing number of nations and peoples an entry point into the international community, enabling its Members also to learn from one another; lending their support where there are setbacks and sharing their experiences in success.

DEAR EDITOR KINDLY , IS IT NOT POSSIBLE TO DISPLAY THE CERTIFICATE/ OFFICIAL DOCUMENT OF BAROTSELANDS ADMISSION TO UNIPO MEMBERSHIP AS IT IS THE CASE WITH UFS AND FFSA? We are hopeful that it will be displayed soonest since it was just an oversight. KOZO SHANGWE.
