Pro-Mthwakazi political communication

Pro-Mthwakazi movement needs to invest in good governance

Experience has taught us that when tribalism is elevated to a system level, the system is reduced to tribalism level. Consequently, an unstable, irresponsible, calamitous system that orchestrates, feeds and benefits from hatred within and between communities, promotes and protects supremacism, tyranny of the majority and/ or the elite, heightens brutality, raise public anxiety andContinue reading “Pro-Mthwakazi movement needs to invest in good governance”
