Questioning the credibility of the election institutions in Zimbabwe has become part and parcel of the election process. The electoral process is seriously flawed and no one has shown serious intention to fix the situation which is no wonder some Matabeleland movements are now convinced boycotting elections is our strongest tool.
The violent post-election clashes witnessed on Wednesday 01/08/2018 in Zimbabwe in which six civilians needlessly lost their lives when the Army opened fire on protesters in Harare do not only show the immaturity of the MDC leadership and insensitivity of ZANU PF but also remind us of the importance of keeping the armed forces inContinue reading “Why the armed forces must not be routinely asked to do police work”
People are free to exercise their right to choose but, they need to understand that with every choice comes responsibility. War cannot be casually pushed up the list of our interventions without giving a decent attempt at nonviolent interventions.
Our enemies will always see us as ignorant, thanks to ZANU PF indoctrination. But, to avoid being perceived as arrogant by our own, we need to start communicating and informing people of our political ideas more effectively.

Hiroshima (1945), Auschwitz (05/1940 – 01/1945), Gukurahundi genocide (January 1983 – April 1984), Halabja chemical attack (1988) and the Rwanda genocide (04 – 06/1994) among other catastrophic examples save as tragic reminders of the boundless human potential for violence and inhumane conduct. Matabeleland must not shy away from fighting for its freedom and liberty forContinue reading “Why Matabeleland must invest in non-violence”
It is no secret that Matabeleland is completely isolated by the Zimbabwean political system. Matabeleland needs to change the system; failure to that, she will have to change her attitude. The first step towards change is self-awareness and the second step is self-acceptance.
There is no dispute across Matabeleland of an immediate need for a social, economic and political reform that will grant the region greater autonomy. The greater argument lies in what the right strategy is. I personally have serious reservations on the greater case for calls for violent resistance at this point. Campaigners for violent resistanceContinue reading “The case for a Matabeleland violent resistance not made yet”
