President Sata orders army to attack Barotse activists in Lukulu

Filed under: More News |


President Michael Sata has ordered defence and security chiefs to immediately take charge of the confusion being created in Lukulu, western province by a group calling itself the Barotse Liberation army.

President Sata says he is aware that the group is currently recruiting ex-soldiers and ex-police officers and has since recruited over 600 people.

He says the country should not be very comfortable with the peace it is currently enjoying as there are some individuals who are trying hard to destabilize the country’s peace.

President Sata says if it means using force, the defence force should go ahead and use it because what is more important is the preservation of the country’s peace.

He said this in Lusaka this morning during the 15th command and staff course graduation of 62 officers.

President Sata says there is need for the armed forces to prove their relevance because as the situation stands, it seems the army is irrelevant as it has no proper ammunition.

Sata said it is government’s desire to see a defence force that is grounded in professionalism with officers that possess knowledge not only in matters of defence and security but also in other disciplines of knowledge.

And President Sata has authorized defence minister and defence chiefs to go to the Democratic Republic of Congo to discuss with that country’s defence force over the current situation in that country.

President Sata has also instructed Mr. Mwamba to warn the Congo defence force not to temper with Zambia because it is committed to respecting principles of non-interference in international affairs of other countries.

  8. Which soldiers? Those who were running away from Mushala and Sayinbwende and ran away in South Sudan and were captured in Seara Leon? Risking your life is about a cause and bravery and Z soldiers have neither! It’s not guns that fight but people. Why should soldiers die for mad Sata? Vietnam, South Africa, Libya, Syria, are examples of people’s will defeating banditry and might! Barotseland has truly gone

    • Look you may have points but you spoil everything with insulting other. This is true not a Bemba issue, but an issue where one decides to put lives of other people at risk for motives best understood by him. What is needed at the moment is just opening dialog without labeling the other party as being weak or strong. ”Umushi bantu” without people Sata can not be a president he needs the Westerners as much as he needs the Muchingans…

  13. In the case of this barotseland we wud like to see how being BEMBA is as meaningless and useless as being an ant! How cn some1 think that bcos he is BEMBA them he is going to fool fellow non Bemba citizens and treat them lik they were half humans in a world he creates? U cheat at pre-election time and u thot those Lozis gave u a vote they did not attach their livelihood to. Lets us accept that sometimes a monkey misses the branch in mid air and tumbles to the ground. U SATA SIMPLY MISCALCULATED AND THOT YUOR BEMBA BACKGROUND IS TOO SUPERIOR TO BE CHALLENGED, HERE WE ARE, LETS C. U HV A TENDENCY TO LOOK DOWN UPON THOSE OF NON BEMBA ORIGINS, U WL NT HV IT EASY.

  14. Those in support of Sata and his madness are in for a rude shock. In this world either u follow reality or die with yr illusions. It is an illusion to think that Sata can use any means to stop cessession of barotseland. Sata cn b president but of Zambia only, not for the entire world, he is too small to the larger than life international law which is in favour of barotselnad ceding frm Zambia!

    T.H - December 1, 2012

  15. Even wen the pungs of genocide still cringe in our ears from Rwanda, the uneducated Sata cant hear them, history no meaning to him. A Grade 7 level of education is not all that bad to a person who has bin in govt all along but Sata it seems did not even go to school any day in his life. All this time he has bin trying hard to follow advice frm Mumembe to use brains towards the barotse issue but Sata ‘s brain cnt bring out an inch of reason, it is a retarded brain that is as ugly as his face. So option is to do wat he is good at, VIOLENCE. We all kno Sata is the cause of prblms in WP, HIS BEMBA TRIBALISM is the cause, if anyone’s head hs to b crushed to maintain peace in our country Sata’s head must b crushed, THE PEACEFUL ZAMBIA IS AT CROSSROADS WITH THIS BEMBA TRIBALIST IN CONTROL.

  17. Sata is playing world tricks like mad president. His got informations sent to UN and even knows that no country today exist without security. He shouldn’t call our security as rabels. His security is occupy our Barotseland irregal , and is also breaking the vienna international law coup 276 (1970) occupying our territory and using physical machines on peaceful country Barotseland that riverted her self on march 27, this year 2012. The people of Barotseland also got own constuetion that was signed with fully signitories of Barotzis. And was sent to UN and Sata his got that document. No gun shall cry now for nothing, if it means physical force we are waiting Mr President. We are tired of Zambians and we still facing same problems when we are free.

    • Ok dude,

      Do you read the stuff you write? Do you have someone proof read and edit your comments?

      You really need an editor! Your writing is scary. It does your cause no good when you write like an illiterate. You seem to think that you understand what you’re writing about. Unfortunately, it comes off like you are dyslexic and a dunderhead that uses English far beyond his understanding and education.

      Truth hurts: learn to write or appoint a literate scribe and spokesman you clowns!

      Ps so what are you buffoons going to do? Overrun a nation with your big bottomed women and dis proportioned men (either too big heads like smooth IK and In’utu Himanje or the reverse). You fellows are more likely to fart and crap yourselves that to organise a rebellion.

      “When it rains, it pours” when a Lozi is thick they are really thick, like the big print version of the complete works of Charles Dickens!

      • well, well. You need not include people who have not done anything to you in your write up. Being from one tribe and not the other is just by chance and whatever tribe or clan you belong to does not make you any special. Chances are that you may not have points to debate as reflected in the level of points you have raised. Any way God being great he found it fit to create those people you have demeaned. In future talk to your god to change things to suite you and your clan.

    He cheated the people of Barotseland to vote for hm so that they could be free – they did vote for him. Why has he changed the goal posts???

    He even released those who were awaiting trial from prison.

    He created a problem and now he wants to be seen to be the champion.

  30. oh our God! when are you intervening to remove the biggest problem Zambians have created for themselves? My appeal to the soldiers being undressed is to heed the president’s advice but look no further than where the advice is coming from, for the sake of innocent Zambians, to remove the obstacle we have brought ourselves.I commend the President for reminding the security forces that they appear to be inactive. MWE TATA LESA TWAFWENI!

  33. And the plot thickens! Are these not the same raving loonies who only a few months ago were scaring Zambians with another non-existing shadowy group which had supposedly taken an oath to slaughter Bembas in Southern Province. The only threat to national security in Zambia emanates from this despical misfit Sata who appears to be missing a few screws in his head. If Zambians are not careful they just might find themselves in a war situation before they know it.

  35. Barotseland will fight this war with brains and she shall win this battle for freedom without weapons.
    If one civilian is killed by Mr Sata’s Army Chiefs, hence all Barotish have human right to defend themselves.
    And those who shall be found wanting, the ICC is patiently waiting for them. Ukwa will be dealt with easily.
    BLA is like a be hive, do not disturb them, otherwise, this will unleash the provoked Barotselanders to defend their Kingdom.
    The ICC is watching the culprits.
    We are coming to defend our people and kingdom.
    God bless Barotseland.

      You present signs of paranoia and schizophrenia.

      You clowns require 6 soft walls in a padded cell, for your own protection.

      Maybe its the heat and hunger from a hangover. Lozi’s are famous for your legendary prowess at drinking yourselves into a stupor.

      Take a couple of cups of cold water, dude! Wash out the methanol from your systems. Put down the Chamba too.

      No, you are not superman!
      No, you cannot catch bullets and neither are you bullet proof.

  37. Ladies and Gentlemen, those of you that are advocating for war in Barotseland do not know what you are talking about. War is not good. The president should find ways and means to resolve this issue maturely. He is Zambian, let him face the Zambian reality and for once stop asking for trouble that you can not finish. People, stop inciting hatred among peaceful citizens. I have seen how people die in war, dont forgot that nowadays war is fought based on modern technology, one can be in Iraq and wipe out the entire city of lusaka including your so-called defense quarters. So please dont talk anyhow. Learn something from Rwanda…..
