Inconsistency hinders Mthwakazi politics

If Mthwakazi public surrender their political responsibilities and stop occupying their legitimate position, then it will be occupied by a coalition of interest groups who will only protect their self-interests.

Mthwakazi politicians ignore the value of numbers at a cost

We can see our forests vanishing, our culture trampled upon, our political influence disappearing, our human confidence dissipating, our water and electricity supplies dwindling, our soil being swept away by floods and winds into the rivers, and the end of our coal and our gold reserves is in sight.
