President Edgar Lungu has been called upon to caution Zambians in diplomatic service to desist from commenting on the issue of the Barotseland Agreement of 1964.

The Barotse National Freedom Alliance (BNFA) is concerned that careless statements on the Agreement by Zambia’s ambassadors and high commissioners, if not handled well, can be a source of conflict.

The BNFA is particularly unhappy by the recent statement attributed to Zambia’s High Commissioner to South Africa Emmanuel Mwamba who is reported to have been featured on SABC TV.

Alliance trustee William Harrington states that Mr. Mwamba’s alleged remarks must be condemned in the strongest terms as they are injurious to the peace-loving people of Barotseland.

Mr. Harrington notes that this is especially that President Lungu last year ordered for the publication of the Barotseland Agreement.

He says the BNFA further urges President Lungu to append his signature to the Permanent Court of Arbitration agreement documents that were submitted to State House.

Mr. Harrington says this is in order that the impasse over the Barotseland Agreement can be conclusively dealt with by a neutral international body – QFM.
