BAROTSELAND NATIONAL UNIVERSITY
SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AND TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENT
Scientific research is important in the sense that it is a tool in which scientific challenges that have human consequences are analysed with the aim of finding solutions.
Today industrialisation is the cornerstone of economic development and nations that have invested in research in the field science and technology have benefited a lot and have become leaders in all field of human development.
In today's information society, the discussions and development is around Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs).
Industrialisation is still important but its from previous development paradigm.
Without research human problems are mystified, concealed or even faked and any attempt to solve them in this age of economic hit men, is wastage of resources. Research is necessary for adoption and indeed development of appropriate technology to mitigate human problems such as health, agriculture, environment, engineering, information technology and scientific education.

This presupposed the existence of the urgent need to adopt and domesticate science in local national language for proper scientific development and safety. Socially this move will enable consolidate Lozi as an official national language.In this vain and being cognisance of the fact that Lozi has same origins as tswana and Sotho of Botswana and south Africa respectively, it should be the mandate of this department to collaborate with similar institution in nomenclature formulation in order to have a regional standards in this field.

Working in liaison with the scientific education department they should ensure the adoption and use of Lozi in basic IT gadgets such as phones, computers, and Automated teller machines etc.It is worth noting and appreciating the work undertaken by a group of Lozis in South Africa who made sure that Lozi is on Google.
The experience they gained in undertaking this project to fruition is something we can utilise.
