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.

Mthwakazi values must make the foundation of politics in Mthwakazi

The political instability shadowing Mthwakazi is no accident but a predictable outcome of our capitulation to the weight of Zimbabwean chaos and confusion. We cannot expect to strengthen ourselves by imitating the same ZANU PF values that form the base of failed systems and institutions of today. We find ourselves on the desert of political … Continue reading Mthwakazi values must make the foundation of politics in Mthwakazi

Gukurahundi Hearings

It is a big step for President Emmerson Mnangagwa to declare that his government will not ignore Gukurahundi. Denial has been the only chosen path for ZANU PF. We have witnessed the damaging political effects of denying justice to Mthwakazi citizens, enforcing poverty and dehumanising Matabeles while perpetuating ignorance that feeds into Mashonaland delusions of … Continue reading Gukurahundi Hearings

Open not your doors to dictatorship Mthwakazi

While it is essential that we keep an eagle’s eye on the manoeuvres of the enemy, let us not forget it is not inessential not to be distracted from tyrannical attitudes of some of those who purport to be fighting our battles. Any Mthwakazi organisation or formation hoping to stand for us must be prepared … Continue reading Open not your doors to dictatorship Mthwakazi

Zimbabwean government not taking Matabeleland concerns seriously

What we are witnessing in Zimbabwe is the maturation and expansion, in real terms, of a polarised political space first construed by ZANU in 1963, put to paper in its 1979 Grand Plan White Paper and effected from 1980. This is a space whose primary ideological concern is the security and safety of ethnic Shona … Continue reading Zimbabwean government not taking Matabeleland concerns seriously
