He was, however, set free after three months extended incarceration without trial, along with every one of the two hundred Barotse detainees for lack of criminal evidence.
Mr Lyamba later rejoined Barotseland activism through the Barotse Freedom Alliance, BNFA, where he was deputy chairperson general at the time of his death.
He has since been put to rest this afternoon through a burial procession presided over by the Seventh Day Adventist church where he served as a church elder.
Several Barotseland independence movements and their representatives were on hand to give him a befitting send-off, among them, members of the BNFA, Barotse Imilema (BI) and Linyungandambo through its Chairperson Silumesii Mubita.
In the following news clip, Nayoto Lyamba recounts his arrest in 2011 as captured and reported by South Africa’s news media giant eNCA.
