Pro-Mthwakazi movement needs to invest in good governance

Experience has taught us that when tribalism is elevated to a system level, the system is reduced to tribalism level. Consequently, an unstable, irresponsible, calamitous system that orchestrates, feeds and benefits from hatred within and between communities, promotes and protects supremacism, tyranny of the majority and/ or the elite, heightens brutality, raise public anxiety andContinue reading “Pro-Mthwakazi movement needs to invest in good governance”

The African independence illusion

I seek not to embed victimhood into Matabeleland’s political model but merely state the obvious; Matabeleland has been on the victim side of Zimbabwean independence. Today’s biggest failure for the independent Africa has been the lack of political will, if not incentive, to revamp previously racialised socioeconomic and political systems and structures. If anything, systemicContinue reading “The African independence illusion”

Diffusion of power has yet to be genuinely placedContinue reading “Africa’s failing politics”

Africa a developing or decaying world?

Africa is effectively a continent in a state of social, cultural and economic decay. The developing Africa ceased to exist the day the first Europeans set foot on the continent, from then onwards it has experienced a systematic appropriation and misappropriation of African resources and the physical and mental enslavement and colonisation of Africans by Europeans.Continue reading “Africa a developing or decaying world?”
