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.

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

When my ability and not my social background ceases to be a factor … Continue reading Matabeleland uncompromising stance on respect

Zimbabwean system must treat citizens equal

No sane person should wake up and be happy with the present state of things in Zimbabwe. We cannot accept the country as it is and lay claim to sanity. Each day we should wake up with a feeling of revulsion because of the injustice of things. First, victims and beneficiaries must reject tribalism and … Continue reading Zimbabwean system must treat citizens equal

Inaction Matabeleland’s deathbed

The greatest gift Matabeleland handed to the anchors (ZANU PF and the MDC) of systematic tribalism in Zimbabwe is inaction; now we have the MDC flagrantly ignoring local interests and imposing outsiders who are clearly naïve to local culture, norms, values and languages to take up executive roles in Matabeleland’s capital city, Bulawayo. A stop … Continue reading Inaction Matabeleland’s deathbed
