  1. AS PEOPLE OF BAROTSELAND WE HAVE NO REGRETS FOR VOTING FOR PF. MMD KILLED OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND IT WOULD HAVE BEEN FOOLISH FOR US TO VOTE FOR MMD. ON THE PART OF PF THEY SUPPORTED OUR FOR BAROTSELAND FREEDOM WHEN THEY WERE IN OPPOSITION AND PROMISED TO OWNER THE BA64 WITHIN 90 DAYS, WE KNEW THEY WERE CHEATING TO THEIR DISADVANTAGE. WITH THAT, ITS NOT FOR US THE PEOPLE OF BAROTSELAND TO REGRET VOTiNG FOR PF BUT FOR PF TO REGRET HAVING PROMISED WHAT THEY CAN’T IMPLEMENT. FOR US IN BAROTSELAND, OUR POSITION AND RESOLVE FOR BAROTSELAND INDEPENDENCE IS STRENGTHENED NOW MORE THAN EVER WITH THE PF’S COMPROMISED POSITION OVER THEIR PROMISE WHICH NOW SAVES TO WORK TO THEIR DETRIMENT IN TERMS OF POPULARITY AS A PARTY IN BAROTSELAND AND TO OUR ADVANTAGE WITH OUR RESOLVE FOR BAROTSELAND INDEPENDENCE CAUSE NOW WE HAVE A SOLID GROUNG TO ARGUE OUR CASE. WITH OR WITHOUT PF WE ARE DETERMINED WITH OUR TO FREE BAROTSELAND AND NO REGRETS AT ALL YOU TOUCH ONE YOU TOUCH ALL.WE ARE NOT INTIMIDATED WITH THE ARRESTS AS THIS GIVES ENERGY TO OUR CAUSE. WILL FIGHT.

  7. @Masuzyo, don’t insult the Lozi people, they have not insulted anyone. They are simply asking for what is legitimately their’s. If you think they are not intittled to demand for what they are asking for, simply state your reasons, and life continues. You don’t even come from the area, so what gives you the right to insult Lozis?
