Not to be confused with Litungu.

The Litunga of Barotseland (now in Zambia) is the king or paramount chief of the Lozi people. The Litunga resides near the Zambezi River and the town of Mongu, at Lealui on the floodplain in the dry season, and on higher ground at Limulunga on the edge of the floodplain in the wet season. The Litunga moves between these locations in what is known as the Kuomboka ceremony.

The current Litunga is Lubosi II.

The truth is that Litunga will be like any chief. He sold his authority ( by aligning himself to Zambia) just because of money. In terms of jurisdiction his power will eventually reduce to that of a Headman when the new Zambian constitution will be passed.
