Clement Sinyinda Resigns as BNFA Leader

Former Prime Minister of Barotseland resigns from his position as Barotse National Freedom Alliance Leader. As the leader of the Barotse National Freedom Alliance, Mr. Sinyinda presided over the Barotse National Council in 2012 that resolved to Declare Independence of Barotseland from the Republic of Zambia. Mr. Sinyinda stated in his resigning letter that it was time to pass on the mantle of leadership to a new generation that will continue to fight for the Total Independence of Barotseland from Zambia. The Barotse

The United Kingdom Leaves the EU

After three-and-a-half years, three prime ministers and seemingly endless votes in Parliament since the 2016 Brexit referendum, Britain finally becomes the first ever country to leave the European Union at 11:01 p.m. GMT on Friday.

BNFA Rejects BRE’s invitation to Dialogue Council

The negotiations were done and concluded before the co-signing of the Agreement. What should have followed was implementation; but the Zambian regime defaulted and legislated against its own obligations. Zambia was a product of

Barotse Cultural Landscape nomination as a World Heritage Site by Zambian Gov. must be rejected at this time

Currently, Zambia is largely seen as Barotseland’s colonizer who cannot be trusted to make decisions of such magnitude as the proposed listing of the Barotse Cultural landscape as a World Heritage Site under UNESCO without thorough consultations with all stakeholders in Barotseland. A one-time directive meeting with the Limulunga Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) and the about ten Zambian Members of Parliament (MPs) who hail from the Barotse region does not actually constitute a wide enough consultative process even by

BAROTSE CHANGE: Ruminations on Constitutional Royal Barotseland Government (RBG)

INTRODUCTION Recent trends in Barotseland and social media have prompted us to reflect on this important subject in our Barotse Change project. It is pleasing to note that the message is sinking in both the proponents and critics of Barotse Change. Indeed “truth pains” as it were, and it is difficult for anybody to stop an idea whose time has come – the complete separation of the once state parties to the attempted unitary Zambia. Whenever truth is exposed it is like sunlight shining on various objects - while
