Change approach: A participatory method the only way forward for Mthwakazi

A lesson to be retained by all freedom seekers – freedom is never free; people have to work for it. It is only when we start moving that we will feel the chains restricting us; if we want to be free, we must actively search for the keys and unlock the locks that are keeping … Continue reading Change approach: A participatory method the only way forward for Mthwakazi

Why a positive foundation is essential for Mthwakazi political progress

As our suffering mounts, we realise that major adjustments are required for Mthwakazi to adequately respond to the experience. For political progress,a period of political neutrality must come to an end; we must take sides. Neutrality is a political haven for the oppressor not the victim. We remain tormented today because we have kept silent … Continue reading Why a positive foundation is essential for Mthwakazi political progress

If double standards front Mthwakazi politics, freedom will be the loser

In colonial Zimbabwe people’s value became their skin colour, as in independent Zimbabwe people have become their tribe. Success and failure are subjectively defined; how good or bad an act is, is tied with the tribe that has committed it; for one tribe, crimes are those committed by the other tribe.

Strategic planning is essential to Matabeleland political growth

Zimbabwe’s disastrous tribal supremacy politics has quite literally shattered Matabeleland’s political grasp while the subsequent cynicism and pessimism have destroyed Matabeles’ confidence in politics, damaged people’s participation and undermined institutions of all kind. We thus stand demoralised, defeated and marginalised within what should be independence in Zimbabwe. The way forward goes beyond complaining. We have … Continue reading Strategic planning is essential to Matabeleland political growth

A collaborative political approach is Mthwakazi’s only hope

We are an ocean of ideas, a flood of talent yet we remain politically marginalised. Just like a pile of bricks is not a palace, great ideas are not a system, they must be executed; the ideas need to be broken down into their manageable constituents in an organised pattern and defined individually to be … Continue reading A collaborative political approach is Mthwakazi’s only hope

Bad opposition scrutinising a bad government breeds chaos

Our independence was born out of opposition, opposition to the power of the colonial government that oppressed black people’s rights and the desire for equality of citizens. We got territorial independence but lost individual freedoms. Today’s Matabeleland opposition is born out of the desire to resist the aggressive forces overwhelming us, i.e. the resistance to … Continue reading Bad opposition scrutinising a bad government breeds chaos
