Matabeleland better grab liberty

Devolution of power, Education, Ethnicity, Federalism, Home, Human Rights, Politics 21 Jul 2015

Zimbabwean independence has not lived up to the best intentions of the ’60s and ’70s liberation struggle. The ‘independence’ has struggled to keep to the promise of liberty and equality for all; Matabeleland has suffered the brunt of ZANU PF’s tyranny.
