Matabeleland must keep the focus

The greatest deception Matabeleland has suffered has been our belief we were independent; the reality is that we are not walking down the right path; we are going nowhere within the Zimbabwean political system. Surprising...Not! The ZANU PF system is not meant to empower Matabeleland. ZANU PF effectively heads a structured socio-political system that has … Continue reading Matabeleland must keep the focus

Let pro-Matabeleland be about that, nothing less

The pro-Matabeleland agenda platforms must only accommodate an objective pro-Matabeleland debate and have nothing to do with those that stand against it. No sane business takes its advertising space and goes on to fill it up with what its competitors think about its products. Your competitors will never promote your products over theirs; logic says … Continue reading Let pro-Matabeleland be about that, nothing less

We need discipline to redesign the Matabeleland brand

The socio-political space nurtured by a ZANU PF dominated government within the independent Zimbabwe territory is a crude political system designed without moral consideration for human rights and dignity of minority population groups. It is a flawed, divisive politics of hate that crushes than listen to dissenting voices; it possesses neither an ear nor a heart … Continue reading We need discipline to redesign the Matabeleland brand

Demystifying the Matabeleland powerhouse agenda

We want to assure those with reservations and apprehensive about the Southern Powerhouse agenda that this is not another ethnically nuanced African political disaster but an honest opportunity to transform Matabeleland into a progressive, modern and politically responsible space. I have been consistent in my argument that Matabeleland belongs to all who dwell in it … Continue reading Demystifying the Matabeleland powerhouse agenda

Review the marketing strategy of the pro-Matabeleland agenda

The Southern Powerhouse (Matabeleland empowerment) dream is not just a dream but a genuine force for hope for Matabeleland; it is a worthy dream, a dream for worthy doers to adopt. It is a dream too valuable to ignore. In this, good campaigning becomes indispensable. Common knowledge is that the lived reality of Zimbabwean independence … Continue reading Review the marketing strategy of the pro-Matabeleland agenda

The problem of Zimbabwe’s independence for Matabeleland

The millions of Zimbabweans who still refuse to condemn the palpable tribalism that continues to be the embodiment of Zimbabwe’s political system are by default guilty of standing in the way of true freedom and liberty for all. We cannot continue excusing ZANU PF injustice on Matabeleland and Matabeles; we cannot as a society allow … Continue reading The problem of Zimbabwe’s independence for Matabeleland

Matabeleland Political Transformation

In 1980, the Matabeleland generation before ours put aside our traditional geopolitical boundaries and surrendered authority in order to work with Mashonaland to bring forth a new nation called Zimbabwe; a 'modern nation’ supposedly conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal. Now 36 years on, nothing can be … Continue reading Matabeleland Political Transformation

Zimbabwe independence costs

With a high degree of confidence, my verdict on Zimbabwe’s post-independence operational processes is that they have created more suffering, deeper socioeconomic disparities and have claimed more political victims than the Smith regime would ever have dreamt of. The so-called independence is now a pantomime; of sovereign African states, we are certainly in an exclusive … Continue reading Zimbabwe independence costs

Of Matabeleland’s consenting slaves

Slaves who think they are free condemn themselves and generations to come to a whole life of enslavement. Our Matabele brothers who feel free, satisfied and equal within Zimbabwean systems are free to feel so but they should stop their pathetic attempts at sharing their complacency with the rest of the ordinary Matabele citizens who … Continue reading Of Matabeleland’s consenting slaves

Matabeleland: a tale of freedom and liberty absence

I am sure it is now evident to all who follow this blog that I am indignant of modern-day Zimbabwe state's systematic bias against Matabeleland. I hold strong convictions that the people of Matabeleland are discriminated against in the modern-day Zimbabwe state. Not only that, I retain strong convictions too that this discrimination is no … Continue reading Matabeleland: a tale of freedom and liberty absence
