Mthwakazi values must make the foundation of politics in Mthwakazi

The political instability shadowing Mthwakazi is no accident but a predictable outcome of our capitulation to the weight of Zimbabwean chaos and confusion. We cannot expect to strengthen ourselves by imitating the same ZANU PF values that form the base of failed systems and institutions of today.

Open not your doors to dictatorship Mthwakazi

While it is essential that we keep an eagle’s eye on the manoeuvres of the enemy, let us not forget it is not inessential not to be distracted from tyrannical attitudes of some of those who purport to be fighting our battles. Any Mthwakazi organisation or formation hoping to stand for us must be prepared to be judged by us for us, and none shall escape the scrutiny of our people.

Zimbabwean government not taking Matabeleland concerns seriously

What we are witnessing in Zimbabwe is the maturation and expansion, in real terms, of a polarised political space first construed by ZANU in 1963, put to paper in its 1979 Grand Plan White Paper and effected from 1980. This is a space whose primary ideological concern is the security and safety of ethnic Shona people while increasing the vulnerability of other ethnic groups with the expectation of their eventual annihilation.

Is there a link between more formal education and better political leadership?

Holistic systemic and institutional change in Zimbabwe is now the only avenue to future progressive politics that can deliver genuine socioeconomic and political inclusivity. An informed person specification will be crucial in how we identify a pool of leaders to carry out our mandate.

Political integrity and not shortcuts will move us ahead

If pro-Mthwakazi groups are true to their word that they have a problem with the Zimbabwean politics, they should be sharply deviating from Zimbabwean political norms founded on tribalism. Our primary goal is political and economic safety and security for all, and our experience of Zimbabwean politics has taught us that tribalism is contraindicated in that.

Complete political reform is what Mthwakazi requires

I argue here that Matabeleland’s experience of Zimbabwean independence is that it ceased to move forward as a living force in October 1980 when Mugabe signed a deal with North Korea to train the Fifth Brigade; ZANU-orchestrated fascism grew in strength, took lives and hopes of non-Shona citizens in our land.
