Litunga removal bid lacks merit

LITUNGA

PRISCILLA CHIPULU, Lusaka
THE Litunga of the Lozi people says the Barotseland Agreement of 1964 is actively being addressed with Government and the Barotse Royal Establishment to resolve any perceived differences.
This is in a matter four Lozi loyalists petitioned the Constitutional Court to compel the Litunga to vacate the throne alleging that he was reluctant to address the issue of the Barotseland Agreement with Government.
In their application filed in the court, Nabiwa Imikendu, Litia Mutemwa, Mukubesa Ilukena and Mumbisho Liswaniso want the Litunga to relinquish his position, accusing him of gross misconduct and abuse of authority.
But Litunga Lubosi Imwiko, through Muimanema Mwenda, the Ngambela of the Barotse Royal Establishment in his affidavit in opposition to their claims, said the process of removing the Litunga was a preserve of the established systems of the Lozi people.http://epaper.daily-mail.co.zm/
