Conspiracy theorists frustrating pro-Mthwakazi

You do not get to build a nation by nurturing, monetising tribal supremacy and deflecting all criticism. The growth and stability of the pro-Mthwakazi movement will be directly proportional to how representative its power structures and leadership are of local communities. Being sensitive to people’s economic, religious, social and cultural needs is essential, as isContinue reading “Conspiracy theorists frustrating pro-Mthwakazi”

The pro-Mthwakazi movement has a duty of care to all – not some – citizens

Citizen doubts over the benefits of an independent Mthwakazi state are legitimate worries seeing what an independent Africa has become. A precedent has been set – in the independent Africa power does not trickle down, it is pumped up. True independence is the preserve for the political elite who extract power from citizens.

Do not surrender pro-Mthwakazi project to pseudo saviours

The greatest risk to the pro-Mthwakazi or Matabeleland agenda is not the ZANU PF political decadence but it lies within the territory; we are our own worst enemy and infighting is the major problem. Curiously, we are replicating the very politics that is the source of our troubles within Zimbabwe. The problem is that weContinue reading “Do not surrender pro-Mthwakazi project to pseudo saviours”

No part for tribalism in pro-Mthwakazi reforms

How we distribute political power will shape our future

Constitutionalism Mthwakazi’s hope

History of African independence shows us that when presidents are not held accountable to a nation’s laws, they soon run out of motivation to defend the nation but start to focus on building and defending personal interests. A lack of constitutionalism in Zimbabwe has led to decades of arbitrary government which has effectively turned theContinue reading “Constitutionalism Mthwakazi’s hope”

Vilification of Joshua Nkomo is a flawed political strategy

To try and remodel the late Joshua Nkomo, sacrifice and reduce him to a ZANU PF icon and coin his political ideological location as intently anti-Mthwakazi freedom is malicious disinformation that unfortunately serves to afford scoundrels in ZANU PF a peaceable existence they do not deserve. Focusing public ire on Nkomo for Mthwakazi’s problems isContinue reading “Vilification of Joshua Nkomo is a flawed political strategy”

How Mthwakazi suffocates in Zimbabwe’s politics of resource allocation

In an ideal world public sector intervention in economic activity is primarily motivated by the desire for efficient allocation of resources, equal wealth distribution and stabilisation of economic activity in a country. However, in the independent Zimbabwe evidence suggests that ulterior political interests have been the main determinant in deciding the allocation of resources inContinue reading “How Mthwakazi suffocates in Zimbabwe’s politics of resource allocation”
