Freedom of speech is no licence to tribalism

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”

Conspiracy theorists frustrating pro-Mthwakazi

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”

The pro-Mthwakazi movement has a duty of care to all – not some – citizens

Citizen doubts over the benefits of an independent Mthwakazi state are legitimate worries seeing what an independent Africa has become. A precedent has been set – in the independent Africa power does not trickle down, it is pumped up. True independence is the preserve for the political elite who extract power from citizens. Far fromContinue reading “The pro-Mthwakazi movement has a duty of care to all – not some – citizens”

Pro-Mthwakazi political communication

We argue that effective communication will be an indispensable tool in the real growth of the pro-Mthwakazi politics; communication breaks down the invisible barriers between the public and the leadership. Pro-Mthwakazi politics is no different, its growth is dependent on how well politics, politicians and the public interact. Effective communication creates links between leaders andContinue reading “Pro-Mthwakazi political communication”

Why Mthwakazi public should still wear masks after taking the Covid-19 vaccine

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”

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”

Encountering inconvenience unavoidable in politics

If your dream is to lead people and not just to acquire power, start seeing engaging the public as your essential work not an inconvenience in your journey. Latest social media news suggest resignations, dismissals and generalised allegations of internal disaffection and/ or conflict in one pro-Mthwakazi movement. While this is clearly a distraction, itContinue reading “Encountering inconvenience unavoidable in politics”

Mthwakazi must understand inaction is action

You will only inspire people when you stand up for something, when you are brave to take responsible risks, when you do what is right, not what is easy nor popular, when instead of being intimidated by the size of the load, you are inspired to figure out how to safely carry it. Let usContinue reading “Mthwakazi must understand inaction is action”

Power for its own sake

Building a truly great country requires that correspondingly great men and women acquire political power and use it efficiently for the good of the nation – all people from all tribes and races. The pro-Mthwakazi movement’s sole interest in seeking power must not be for power’s sake but to achieve political goals, power to mapContinue reading “Power for its own sake”

Do not surrender pro-Mthwakazi project to pseudo saviours

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”
