The nation of Barotseland was on 16th April 2018, greeted with news pertaining to the impending dialogue over the Barotseland Agreement of 1964 with the Government of the Republic of Zambia.

The press release on dialogue follows the statement by Zambian President Edgar Lungu ahead of the 2016 elections when he expressed willingness to sit around the table and conclude the impasse once the BRE (Zambia's institution) was ready.

BNFA statement on the BRE suggested Dialogue Council

by BNFA Publicity Wing

The Barotse National Freedom Alliance (BNFA) cannot and will not take part in the Barotseland Agreement 1964 negotiations proposed by the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE). There is nothing to negotiate about the Barotseland Agreement 1964 as insinuated by the BRE press statement of April 16, 2018. 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.

Forgiveness is a process of giving up the old, lost and past life for one readily available with a new faith and hope of reaching your God given goal.

The experiences are gone and each time we try to re-live them in contemplating our memories, it may bring anger, resentment, shame, or guilt, when we realize we cannot change the past events or travel back in time to alter what resulted.
