Matabeleland history, Matabeleland responsibilityRead more: Matabeleland history, Matabeleland responsibility
There is no question about Matabeleland past, it did happen; our concern is its misrepresentation, the Matabeleland history which is now effectively a version of past events as decided and agreed upon in Harare.
