Social media and Mthwakazi politics

Social media has transformed the way we communicate; information is quick to gather and spread, and the context even quicker to lose. It would be foolhardy to deny the fact that social media is here to stay, and it does have an impact on the political space of Mthwakazi. What we can argue on however, is the effectiveness of the transference of what happens online to the ground. Continue reading

IS HAVING MANY SMALL POLITICAL PARTIES HELPING THE MTHWAKAZI CAUSE?

Political capacity is not a one and done deal, it is a variable process not pegged in one position. It is therefore, not a surprise that Matabeleland’s political landscape is presently showing greater signs of shifting, and if we are to endure, we must be proactive; our political interventions must reflect our understanding of the changes taking place as closely as is humanely possible.

We cannot stop thinking but thoughts can be managed and altered; understanding and managing thoughts is essential for the step forward. Continue reading

Liars anchoring the political life cycle of Zimbabwe have managed to convince themselves that Matabeleland is a threat to national unity and have treated it as one. This deception is nothing but a chunk of deliberate lies reduced and meticulously put into practice. The whole Zimbabwean system is a political sham frequently patched and propped up by a woven set of partial truths, if not plain lies to avoid it collapsing on itself. Continue reading

COMPLACENCY THE ULTIMATE TRAGEDY FOR PRO-MTHWAKAZI POLITICS

It is never too late to change, we have finally come to the realisation that inaction and indifference are taking us to the nearest political dumping site; political change and progress in Mthwakazi will not happen through us sitting and thinking about it but through action. Continue reading
