I would like to shed light on the genesis of the Nkoya tribal group of Barotseland, in order to disprove the innuendo being peddled that certain tribal extractions are under subjugation of other tribal groupings in Barotseland. This incorrect assumption is being engineered by political stewards who are our brothers and sisters from the group that professes to be of the "Nkoya" extraction which claims not to belong to Lozi nationality. They have argued that Nkoyas are not part of the ...
The European Parliament has adopted a resolution supporting Palestinian statehood in principle. The compromise motion did not back immediate recognition of a Palestinian state. After discussions between the main parties in the European Parliament, a watered down motion on Palestine was carried by a two-thirds majority on Wednesday. "(The European Parliament) supports in principle recognition of Palestinian statehood and the two-state solution, and believes these should go hand in hand with ...
IN WHAT CONTEXT IS BAROTSELAND A STATE? I would like to clarify the innuendo being peddled by enemies of Barotseland with intent to corrupt the less enlightened citizens in regard to the Act of INDEPENDENCE DECLARATION, the method Barotseland followed. In the first place the route of independence declaration is legal and the independence claim born out of it is legitimate. Barotseland is not the only country to have taken such a route but countries like USA, Kosovo, etc did the same. ...
It was with deep shock and pain that we learned of the passing of yet another hero of the struggle for the total independence of Barotseland, Comrade Muyangana Muyangana. He was, in every sense, a brave warrior who never retreated in battle. He kept on believing in our cause and never allowed even sickness to change his conviction. In him was a man who truly lived for something he was ready to die for. This is sad indeed. When we finally arrive at our destination and are reclining in our reed ...
Prince Mwangelwa Mbikusikuta-Lewanika who died on the 8th of December 2014 was put to rest on Friday the 12th of December 2014 in Limulunga Royal village at the Royal grave yard, next to his elder brother Dr. Mwananyanda Mbikusita Lewanika who died on 4th October earlier this year. The funeral gathering has been held at Mukola family place. Prince Mwangelwa, a humble man full of life, and a very intelligent prince in the Mbikusita Lewanika royal house-hold was also a member of the Barotseland ...
10/12/2014 Acting Administrator General’s Tour - Press Release by the Department Of Information & Media Services, Royal Barotseland Dr. Matengu Situmbeko, the Acting Administrator General of Barotseland Kingdom has embarked on a tour visiting many countries of the world with the aim to seek recognition for the Barotseland Nation; to woo and talk to investors and Governments, and he is accompanied by Mr. Sibeta Mundia, the Editor General at Barotseland Post, Dr. Hastings Njamba Muhau, ...
If the report as given by Watchdog Zambia on who actual initiated the arrest of the three honorable freedom fighters and the role played by the two named sons of Barotseland is true, then it is regrettable and not to be left hanging before the dual plunges Barotseland in more bigger trouble. From the information reaching us it is believed that the two have been best friends and attracted a lot of trust and sympathy from Chief Inyambo yet he did not know the type of the young men he was ...

 

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.
