CHEKE CHA MBUNDA KICK STARTS DIALOGUE WITH BRE

By Courtesy of Cheke Cha Mbunda Cultural and Writers Association on 16th May 2016.

 

A delegation of the National Executive Committee of Cheke Cha Mbunda Cultural and Writers Association over the weekend visited the Mwandi Palace of the Barotse Royal Establishment (BRE) in Sesheke and had a meeting with Senior Chief Inyambo and his Traditional Court (Kuta) on 15th May 2016.

 

The meeting which was described by the Senior Chief as important and a learning process touched among others, issues like the eroding Mbunda customs and tradition, Mbunda history in Barotseland and interaction with the Lozis with emphasis on the Mulambwa/Chiyengele Treaty and the Mbunda identity.

 

To Cheke Cha Mbunda this meeting was a perfect rekindling of the process of dialogue with BRE over the Mbunda grievances in Western Province which was disrupted after presentation to Barotse National Council (BNC) in 2012 and hijacked by those that wanted to use Cheke for their political expedient from 2012 to 2015.

 

Prior to the visit Cheke Cha Mbunda received an invitation letter from Mwata Mbunge, the Prime Minister of the Chief Mundu Chieftainship in Kalabo and current area chief of Liumba, to help initiate and facilitate dialogue with BRE over the Chief (Mwene) Mundu installation misunderstandings. Furthermore, Cheke Cha Mbunda received their copy of a meeting proposal to all Mbunda chief in Zambia from Mwata Mbunge inviting them to meet and deliberate on the eroding Mbunda customs and traditions. In the the same letter Cheke Cha Mbunda are proposed to chair the meeting being the custodian of the researched Mbunda history.

Cheke will therefore like to reiterate its National Chairmanís statement during the launching of the Lusaka Provincial Committee two weeks ago that, Cheke has been in existence since 1956 having been formed by Mbunda people on the line of rail and enjoys 99.9 percent support from the nine (9) Mbunda chiefs in Zambia.

 

That being the case, Cheke and its National Executive Committee being a legal entity does not need recognition or approval from so called and illegal royal administrative structures recently formed without consensus.

 

Anyone aggrieved is therefore free to seek legal redress.
