Not to speak or express one’s thoughts – for whatever reason – is a violation of one’s liberty. A free Mthwakazi state must commit to respecting the right for people to hold views and freely express them; people must be free to proclaim truth and not be silenced through fear. We are not oblivious toContinue reading “Freedom of speech is no licence to tribalism”
You do not get to build a nation by nurturing, monetising tribal supremacy and deflecting all criticism. The growth and stability of the pro-Mthwakazi movement will be directly proportional to how representative its power structures and leadership are of local communities. Being sensitive to people’s economic, religious, social and cultural needs is essential, as isContinue reading “Conspiracy theorists frustrating pro-Mthwakazi”
Why should I continue to wear a mask after taking the Covid-19 vaccine? This is an important question, one of the many trending the social media. It is astounding that we have a vaccine that appears to be 95% effective and very safe; hopefully it will soon be accessible to the public to put anContinue reading “Why Mthwakazi public should still wear masks after taking the Covid-19 vaccine”
The greatest risk to the pro-Mthwakazi or Matabeleland agenda is not the ZANU PF political decadence but it lies within the territory; we are our own worst enemy and infighting is the major problem. Curiously, we are replicating the very politics that is the source of our troubles within Zimbabwe. The problem is that weContinue reading “Do not surrender pro-Mthwakazi project to pseudo saviours”
Reforming pro-Mthwakazi politics is citizen responsibility. We need to be honest about what we need, take appropriate risks to achieve it than avoid the truth in fear of rocking the boat. The pro-Mthwakazi movement’s political tone has faced allegations of tribalism. As responsible citizens we will not bend; we will call for accountability; we willContinue reading “No part for tribalism in pro-Mthwakazi reforms”
Finally there is positive news to come from the science world; although the severe acute respiratory coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) or coronavirus (COVID-19) has ravaged and altered global activities, today there are vaccines with promise and one (Pfizer-BioNtech) is already in use since 08-December-2020. Care must be taken as countries continue to record high daily deathContinue reading “Mthwakazi movements should help counter SARS-CoV-2 anti-vaxxers”
Years of research in leadership must inform pro-Mthwakazi’s approach to leadership; research is consistent in that without an understanding of your emotions you cannot obtain and maintain effective leadership roles. One needs to understand their range of emotions and those of the led; the Mthwakazi struggle must never be allowed to be a casualty ofContinue reading “Emotional intelligence vital for Mthwakazi leaders”
Growing our own food and increasing food security is just as essential as the need for political independence yet we seem not only least concerned about it but recklessly least prepared to address the anomaly. Pro-Mthwakazi politicians are aware of Mthwakazi’s harsh arid and semi-arid conditions and the implication on food production and food security.
There is no denying that as a society, Mthwakazi is heavily disadvantaged by the tribalism of the current Zimbabwe regime, but it is equally true that gender is probably the most restricting force in Mthwakazi life. Our fight for freedom must go in tandem with the fight to secure freedom for Mthwakazi women.
Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals is to ‘promote peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development’. And we recognise in Mthwakazi that a key component of an inclusive society is active participation by women in political processes. We believe that the equitable participation of women in politics and government is essential to building andContinue reading “Increasing women participation in pro-Mthwakazi politics”
