Democracy and free press are inseparable

True democracy is our only future, and the building of an infrastructure for a system of free press is integral to that; free flow of information cannot be overstated in the maintenance of a democracy. Our pro-Mthwakazi organisations must be seen, and in real terms, be open to public scrutiny. Continue reading

IS HAVING MANY SMALL POLITICAL PARTIES HELPING THE MTHWAKAZI CAUSE?

Political capacity is not a one and done deal, it is a variable process not pegged in one position. It is therefore, not a surprise that Matabeleland’s political landscape is presently showing greater signs of shifting, and if we are to endure, we must be proactive; our political interventions must reflect our understanding of the changes taking place as closely as is humanely possible.

UNITY OF PURPOSE IMPORTANT FOR MTHWAKAZI POLITICS

Success is neither an accident nor a secret; it is a product of careful planning, hard work, networking, perseverance, and an honest introspection that raises serious consideration of lessons from failure – yours and others’. A complete political culture change is required for Mthwakazi to progress; Mthwakazi groups need to come together and make success happen. Continue reading

MTHWAKAZI NEEDS TRUE LEADERSHIP FOR GROWTH

Good leadership is the driver of progress, while coincidence happens, it must not be permitted to dominate strategy in Mthwakazi’s political space. Leadership is everything; it is not just the weapons an army is in possession of, but the quality of the leadership that matters. No matter how large the human support behind the pro-Mthwakazi agenda may be, it means very little if people do not know where they are heading to, have no idea what needs to be done and how to think to remove Mthwakazi from Zimbabwe’s political penitentiary.

Tsvangirai’s attempts to ‘destroy’ ethnic identification is political futility

The Morgan Tsvangirai-led MDC Alliance is nowhere near a solution for Mthwakazi’s political problems; it is another organised deceit, a repugnant, filthy and grossly hypocritical institution whose only focus is replacing ZANU PF in government; the alliance is nothing but a continuation of a dictatorial political regime that exclusively protects the majority ethnic Shona population while alienating ethnic minorities and Mthwakazi. Continue reading

POLITICAL BIGOTRY AND NOT ETHNIC DIVERSITY THE PROBLEM

Tsvangirai is yet to let me down; he is consistently clueless and will confidently display it whenever given the chance as was the case at White City Stadium in Bulawayo recently. His concerns of what he perceives to be a peace threatening culture of ethnic extremism are imaginary at best and a lie at worst. Continue reading

MDC ALLIANCE OF NO SIGNIFICANCE TO MTHWAKAZI

A new political script for this generation and the next must be adopted now. We say enough is enough; we reject all but essential activity with Zimbabwe orientated organisations! We turn our backs on Zimbabwean politics, this is time we dictated terms in our political space. Now we break down the chains of slavery; we break down all barriers to peace; we cut all ties with the oppressor and oppression. Continue reading
