Mthwakazi – change the system not just target the tribal imbalance

If, as Mthwakazi, we want to accomplish great things we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe. Top of the list we want an end to an unjust system that has politically propelled Mashonaland dominance over Mthwakazi and the establishment of a fair system that includes Mthwakazi socio-political norms and values. This fundamental demand motivates people to take a stand against tribal, corrupt, abusive and autocratic governance. Our people want a rules-based system and institutions.

Strategic planning is essential to Matabeleland political growth

Zimbabwe’s disastrous tribal supremacy politics has quite literally shattered Matabeleland’s political grasp while the subsequent cynicism and pessimism have destroyed Matabeles’ confidence in politics, damaged people’s participation and undermined institutions of all kind. We thus stand demoralised, defeated and marginalised within what should be independence in Zimbabwe.

A collaborative political approach is Mthwakazi’s only hope

We are an ocean of ideas, a flood of talent yet we remain politically marginalised. Just like a pile of bricks is not a palace, great ideas are not a system, they must be executed; the ideas need to be broken down into their manageable constituents in an organised pattern and defined individually to be fully understood by people, brought to order and aligned with our needs.

Bad opposition competing with a bad government breeds chaos

Our independence was born out of opposition, opposition to the power of the colonial government that oppressed black people’s rights and the desire for equality of citizens. We got territorial independence but lost individual freedoms. Today’s Matabeleland opposition is born out of the desire to resist the aggressive forces overwhelming us, i.e. the resistance to crumbling under the weight of ZANU PF/ MDC tribal Shona agenda.

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. Continue reading

Gukurahundi Hearings

It is a big step for President Emmerson Mnangagwa to declare that his government will not ignore Gukurahundi. Denial has been the only chosen path for ZANU PF. We have witnessed the damaging political effects of denying justice to Mthwakazi citizens, enforcing poverty and dehumanising Matabeles while perpetuating ignorance that feeds into Mashonaland delusions of supremacy; coexistence has been impossible.

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. Continue reading
