Reader friendly Mthwakazi Independent: a blog about Matabeleland and all things that matter. It is the voice of Matabeleland people; our nation is facing existential threats we haven’t seen in years and it’s survival depends on our ability to breakdown all barriers to our civil rights, freedoms and liberties. We’re the information vehicle moving the past and the present to the region as we walk into the future.
It’s vital that people understand why and how the independent state of Zimbabwe is a problem for Matabeleland. We expose systemic flaws that malign Matabeleland and increase self-doubt. Zimbabwean systems and institutions are a product of tribalism that withholds favour from Matabeleland and its people. But, we are not about nursing victimhood mentality, we advance alternative approaches that better address Matabeleland’s needs.
