About Us

Barotse National Freedom Alliance (BNFA) is an umbrella organization of all activists’ groups (Linyungandambo, Barotse Freedom Movement, Movement for the Restoration of Barotseland, Barotse Imilemas, Barotse Youth league and others) formed for the purpose of coordinating the implementation of the sovereign resolutions of March 2012 Barotse National Council in a pacific manner.  On July 8, 2016, BNFA transformed itself into a mass organization.


The vision of the BNFA is to attain a fully independent and democratic state of Barotseland.


The Mission of the BNFA is to actualize the Barotse National Council Resolution of 27th March, 2012 by bringing together organizations and individuals to attain full independence for the state of Barotseland.

The aim of the Alliance is to organize and coordinate efforts of the people of Barotseland in attaining recognition of their statehood.


The objectives of the Alliance are to:

  1. coordinate persons and organizations involved in political, legal and other legitimate actions required to peacefully re-instate the status of Barotseland as a self governing and independent nation;
  2. promote a democratic culture in respect of reconstituting and modernizing the traditional governance structures of Barotseland;
  3. promote a worldwide campaign of awareness of the constitutional development of Barotseland during the pre-colonial, colonial and post-colonial periods;
  4. provide a platform for formulation of policy, constitutional framework and power structures of Barotseland; and
  5. fund raise and mobilize resources required for the achievement of these objectives.

These objectives can not be achieved without your support. We call on the international community to support Barotseland’s legitimate right to self-determination as a people and sovereign nation. Support the restoration of the human rights of the people of Barotseland with your donation.
