A POLITICALLY PROACTIVE MTHWAKAZI IS EVERYONE’S DUTY

A progressive political space is one where everyone takes ownership of the political project at hand, and where no one is awaiting solutions, but everyone is creative and acts to turn dreams into reality. It is a space where people actively work to remove obstructions from their systems. Continue reading

CAN MATABELELAND LEARN ANYTHING FROM PRO-INDEPENDENCE CATALANS?

Zimbabwe is an environment of extreme tribalism, and tribalism makes more noise, normality does not sell. We want to turn the tide and make decency the norm in Mthwakazi’s fight for sovereignty. The outcome of the Catalonia 21-Dec-2017 election gives hope and further confirmation that armed intervention and violence (in general) is not the only intervention available to Mthwakazi.

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

Mthwakazi not playing host to tribalism

Peace will continue to elude Mthwakazi until we effectively deny space for the Zimbabwean systems and institutions based on tribalism to thrive. And the only sure way of stopping tribalism in our communities is stopping making excuses for all forms of discrimination anywhere within our social, economic and political space. Continue reading

Inner strength and willpower will drive Mthwakazi forward

The importance of law in society is unquestionable hence Mthwakazi has continued to abide by laws within the unified Zimbabwe state. However, let it be known that we are not obligated to respect unjust laws that condemn us to suffering and laws to which our consent is not sort. Continue reading
