The Mthwakazi Liberation Organisation led by Paul Siwela has challenged the people in Matabeleland to brave themselves and push for the break away of the Matabeleland from the rest of Zimbabwe so that it states as a sovereign state.
This was said by the party’s information and publicity secretary Israel Dube who said things were falling apart in Zanu-PF.
“Brother turns against brother, sister betrays sister. The center cannot hold anymore,” said Dube.
“As the walls of oppression and discrimination collapse, Matebeles must make sure that they do not find themselves lost in the dust and debris of the Zimbabwe ruins.
“We at MLO would like to inform Matebeles that your Independence and Sovereignty is due NOW or NEVER and urge everyone to get ready to play their part to usher in your Freedom and Self Determination. No one shall deliver Matebeleland independence and sovereignty but Matebeles themselves.”
Dube said Matebeleland must seize this glorious opportunity and break away the yoke of oppression and discrimination when Zimbabwe s power hungry oppressors and gukurahundist are consumed in their own self destruct power struggles.
“Have you forgotten about the 5 Indices that are currently at play and catalyst to deliver The Republic of Matebeleland on or before 2018 ?” he said.
“Have you forgotten about the Legal and Economic warfare that would deliver a shattering blow to Zimbabwe ? For the benefit of doubting Thomases who still do not believe that Matabeleland is under oppression, check the following speeches by a few deadly oppressors in the world.”
Dube reminded the Matabeles to never take a tyrant’s words for granted.
“They do flash red lights before they act. It is important to read in between the lines,” he said.
Quote 1) “Men from Matabeleland are only good at marrying many wives and making babies instead of developing their areas, they are lazy,” Grace Mugabe addressing a rally in Gwanda, Matabeleland South.
Quote 2) “Blacks cannot rule themselves. They are good in nothing else but making noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in sex. Let us all accept that a black man is the symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and emotional incompetence. I wish to announce a number of new strategies that should be put to use to destroy this black bug. We should now make use of the chemical weapon. Priority number one, we should not by all means allow anymore increases of the black population lest we be choked very soon,” P.W Botha apartheid leader.”
Quote 3) He also quoted this,”We have sprayed gamatox to kill cockroaches in Matabeleland,” Emmerson Mnangagwa during genocide campaign.”
Quote 4) “I have deployed an army in Matabeleland to totally annihilate the Ndebele,” Robert Mugabe addressing a rally in Zvishavane during genocide campaign
Quote 5) “I could have annihilated all the Jews, but I left some to let you know why I annihilated them,” Adolf Hitler.
He said similarity of speech very striking, is it not?
“There you have it, in Mugabes and Mnangagwas of this world there is no doubt that we are dealing with serious murderers, oppressors who are in the same level with apartheid Botha and Nazi Hitler,” he said.
“Oppressors and mass murderers around the world have the same mentality. No matter where they are in the world the pattern is always the same. The only difference is that, with the help of the whole world, apartheid and fascism are now dead and buried but Matebele oppression in Zimbabwe is still alive and kicking, hatred and obliteration of Matebele is ignored by the world and continues unabated like that of the Palestinians.”
Dube said the programme of confession and reconciliation in South Africa helped in healing the wounds of apartheid and brought about peace and unity.
“Under Zimbabwe the heartless perpetrators do not allow people to mourn their loved ones who lost their lives in the most brutal manner during gukurahundi genocide,” said Dube.
“What have we benefited from Zimbabwe since 1980 apart from the killing of over 40 000 unarmed civilians, over 100 000 of Matebele girls and women raped over 1 000 000 Matebeles dispersed into the diaspora and the remaining population of 3 500 000 living under oppressive and discriminatory conditions if that was a benefit?
“What are we going to get after the disintegration of Zanu-PF? NOTHING ! NOTHING ! ABSOLUTELY NOTHING ! It is clear that opposition parties in Zimbabwe desperately need Matebeles to help them remove Robert Mugabe and possible Zanu-PF from power but continue with the institutionalised discrimination and oppression of Matebelels.”
He said but Zanu-PF politics of tokenism and isolation is evident in their top structures. In a pure Zanu-PF fashion the post of the president is reserved for Zimbabweans then second vice president and other three meaningless ministerial posts are given to Matabeles to hoodwink people of Matabeleland and the world that the Matebeles are represented in Zimbabwe’s government.
“The truth is those people are just dummies they don’t have a say. If you think I’m lying wait until the MDC renewal team announces its leadership,” he said.
“The GNU exposed all the pretenders and deceivers in MDC-T. We watched as there was a stampede to shower Mugabe with praises by MDC-T officials as soon as the GNU was formed. The most revealing was the then Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai’s statement as quoted by The Guardian in 2010.”
“I suppose Robert Mugabe has been portrayed as a demon, he himself made a contribution to that caricature because I cannot defend what he did over the last 10 years in terms of violence, in terms of expropriation and these other activities. But there is also a positive contribution to our country that he has made. Remember that he was a national liberation hero so those are positive years.” He said Tsvangirai statement confirmed what he already knew, that is Zimbabweans see gukurahundi as their finest hour and this set the stage for what was to follow.
“Like the birds of the same feather will do, MDC-T ganged up with Zanu-PF and made sure gukurahundi was swept under the carpet, made sure leaders from Matabeleland were excluded from the presidency, made sure that Zanu-PF policy of marginalisation, annihilation and segregation continued. What happened to DIMAF Mr Tendai Biti?,” he said.
“To them serious human abuses started in the year 2000 and anything that happened before then is a none issue. Are they not deceivers, are they not gukurahundi denialists, are they not collaborators, are they not catalysts for Zanu-PF conspiracy plans? Expecting change from such untrustworthy people is same as expecting diesel to trickle from the dry stones of Chimanimani mountains.”
Dube said recently he has seen groups of rowdy young man and women coming from as far as Zimbabwe to grab land and companies from both black and white people of Matabeleland under the guise of correcting the wrongs of the past and indigenisation.
“The companies and land which continues to be stolen from Matebeles everyday by these thugs will never be returned to the rightful owners unless we reclaim them ourselves but of course at a course to be borne by all Matebeles collectively,” he said.
“We at MLO cannot afford to ignore danger warning signs which are glaring at us. We are pretty sure that as long as we allow it, as long as we are not standing up to them, as long as we continue crying foul but doing nothing, as long as we allow them to rule us. Zimbabweans will continue to steal our resources, steal our land, steal our properties, rape our women, kill innocent people, exterminate our culture and our identity until the nation called Mthwakazi is wiped out from the face of the earth.”
He said people must make hey while the sun shines. When the enemy camp is divided you can as well sleep inside their tent.
“While they are still involved in their gamatox battles let us all unite, rise and unleash the revolution that will pave the way for an independent and sovereign Republic of Matabeleland,” he said.
