Western province advised to understand implications of Barotse
Dr. Alex Ng’oma has told QFM News that the boundaries of the Barotseland go beyond some of Zambias borders and has wondered how possible it will be for the people of western province to claim the land in such countries.
Dr Ng’oma who is also a political scientist at the University of Zambia notes that the issue of the Barotseland Agreement is a very sensitive matter which will need to be handled carefully by the parties involved as failure to do so may result in anarchy.
Dr. Ng’oma adds that while the people of western province have a good cause with regards the issue of the Barotseland, there is nowhere in the Agreement where secession is mentioned.
He has also urged government to ensure that there is dialogue on the matter to rectify the mistakes that could have been made at the time the Barotseland Agreement was being signed.
Dr Ng’oma has since advised the government to listen to the people of western province on the matter.
