We owe it to our fallen heroes and heroines (grandparents, mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, sons, daughters and the unborn babies mercilessly butchered) not to allow the Zimbabwean state dominion over Matabeleland and not to repeat the horrors of the Gukurahundi inhuman acts of undeterred violence.

We shall not pretend to be surprised by Linda Tsungie Masarira’s recently expressed political remarks about the alleged ‘cowardice’ of Ndebeles. As Matabeleland nationals, we will steer clear of self-pity and ensure there is no longer any tolerance for such outrageous conduct.
