ABOUT THIS BLOG

The MTHWAKAZI INDEPENDENT is a private blog with vested interest in Mthwakazi politics. In line with our belief that literacy is the best way of narrowing the gap between our people’s dreams and achievement, we publish high quality articles that aim to inform the Mthwakazi electorate and students on both historical and current economic, political and policy issues of relevance to the region.

Our network of contacts, researchers, critics and writers, scattered across the globe, aims to raise pertinent socio-political and policy issues in Mthwakazi, highlight injustice and exploitation of Mthwakazi people within the modern state of Zimbabwe.

We focus our interest on the protection of human rights of all Mthwakazi nationals; in that respect we challenge all misogynistic attitudes and behaviours that continue to retard the empowerment of women in our society. We offer objective analyses of the socioeconomic and political damage of Zimbabwean systems and policies in Mthwakazi.

The website identifies Zimbabwean state systems and institutions as tribal and highlights the negative effects of tribalism to Mthwakazi and its people. In its characteristic progressive approach, the website advances alternative political systems and policies that will better meet Mthwakazi’s needs.

We are confident in our ability to inform and educate the public, but we are not arrogant to believe we are the only source; we indeed realise we are only one of many such hubs of information. We strongly encourage readers to visit other like-minded websites to broaden their knowledge base and understanding of Mthwakazi issues.

We maintain a high level of objectivity in our research for and presentation of our articles. We do not intend to be a mouthpiece of any organised political movement in Mthwakazi; by extension, we are not aligned to any political organisation, but will scrutinise every organisation’s policies and conduct as best as we can for the public’s benefit.
