There is no doubt we have entered a period of heightened political enlightenment and activity within Matabeleland. Our future is at stake, we require that everyone not only stays alert but plays their role too. Our youth needs to guard against complacency and thus, falling asleep through this journey.
The government system we deserve will not create itself and just walk into our lounges; we need to stand up, build it and the gates that allow it into every household. If we want change, we need to appreciate that the major responsibility lies in participation.
Development is not a phenomenon that will just happen to Matabeleland; Matabeleland citizens will have to make it happen. We are acutely aware that no nation has ever developed on the back of socio-political powerlessness; Matabeleland must gain control of its socio-economic and political space first.
