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. Continue reading

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. Continue reading

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 for patriotic reasons that I would rather take Jonathan Moyo’s side against his latest critic Dr Bekithemba Mpofu. justice Continue reading

The problem of Zimbabwe’s independence for Matabeleland

The millions of Zimbabweans who still cannot recognise 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 ourselves to consent to surrender some of our legal and political rights in order for the Mugabe government to protect our other rights; such reasoning is nothing but palpable social, legal and political absurdity.
