Chiwenga Claims His Family, Mnangagwa's Have Roots In Matabeleland

Chiwenga Claims His Family, Mnangagwa's Have Roots In Matabeleland

Vice President Constantino Chiwenga has claimed his family, and that of President Emmerson Mnangagwa, have roots in King Mzilikazi’s kingdom of Matabeleland.

In a 17-minute video shot during his meeting with members of his new wife, Miniyothabo Baloyi in Filabusi, Chiwenga said Mnangagwa’s grandfather grew up while in King Mzilikazi’s royal kraal. He also claimed his own great grandmother was a chief in present-day Nkayi and was one of King Mzilikazi’s many wives. quotes him as saying:

The President’s grandfather, Mubengu, was taken when he was a little boy by Mzilikazi and was kept at the royal kraal until he was put in the Mbizo regiment.

At the battle of Phuphu, he is the one who threw the spear that killed the last white-man there. That is why you hear the President say he wants to build a statue for general Mtshana Khumalo.

We have our own history, in this area.

Our great grandfather (Chiwengas) was the last Monomotapa, and his sister was a chief at Nkayi. She was married to Mzilikazi as one of his wives.

The former army general was in the company of his wife, a colonel in the army, he married in June this year after secretly dating her for some time.

Some people of Matabeleland and Midlands hate Mnangagwa and Chiwenga following their involvement in the early 1980s massacre of over 20 000, mainly Ndebele-speaking people in what was termed the Gukurahundi.

Chiwenga was in charge of the Bulawayo battalion that supported the North Korean-trained 5th Brigade that was deployed by the late President Robert Mugabe. Mnangagwa was the minister of Defence.

Kunyepera vanaTezvarawo here akomana? The Autistic VP cannot even pronounce one iSindebele word correctly or even greet in iSindebele. Remember "Old Pumura". They take Zimbabweans for uneducated for fools for sure. Hanzi Mnangagwa's grandfather killed the last White man in battle with a Spear. Actually, Chiwenga is accussing Ndebele ancestors of kidnapping & abduction.

Nhai iCulture ipi yekuti mukwasha anoita 17 minutes Speech kunana Tezvara achivaudza zveku MahMah? Kuroora yakamboita Rally ine Media riinhi? Could it be that Mr. Old Pumura, was hoping that his party will get the Ndebele Vote if he marries a Ndebele woman? By the way, "Baloyi" means "Varoyi" in Shona.

If this was accounts/audit, this gentleman (and I use the term loosely) would be guilty of creative accounting. However, since there are no ethics in politics, his treatise should be termed creative history. For a man who disingenuously misquoted The Mgagawo Declaration to justify a coup, fictitious history becomes reality.

All for what? 2023 votes?
Does he sincerely think people will conveniently forget the activities his 5th Brigade and supporting Llewelyn Brigade (of which he was commanding officer) perpetrated against the Ndebele nation? Does he really believe that the people will forget about the then Security Intelligence minister (now President) how he orchestrated massacres at Antelope Mine? And does he sincerely believe he can hoodwink **** into voting for this team?

The United Zimbabwe Alliance (UZA) party has bemoaned the “suppression” of fundamental freedoms and rights in Zimbabwe saying this was in huge contrast to what the living and dead freedoms fighters fought for. In a Heroes’ Day Commemoration message seen by Pindula News, the party pledged to fulfil the aspiration of the liberation struggle. Reads the statement issued this Monday:
United Zimbabwe Alliance Heroes’ Day Commemoration Message UZA applauds the bravery, patriotism and sacrifice made by Zimbabwe’s heroes and heroines in the liberation struggle which saw our beautiful nation attain its independence on April 18 1980. On this very important day, we recognize and salute the tenacity of the thousands of people who died so that the national dream could live again. UZA stands proud on our heroes’ and heroines’ shoulders, and we do not take for granted their sacrifice for a better Zimbabwe.
Our party honors these gallant sons and daughters for their heroism and daring nerve in fighting repression and subjugation. There is no illusion that the war veterans both living and departed envisioned a democratic Zimbabwe whose citizens would enjoy the one man one vote among a host of other fundamental human rights. The contribution of the likes of Leopold Takawira, Jason Ziyapapa Moyo, Herbert Chitepo, Josiah Magarna Tongogara, Rogers Alfred Nikita Mangena, Dr Joshua Nqabuko Nkomo, Dr Samuel Parirenyatwa, John Landa Nkomo, Rtd General Solomon Mujuru and Dr Vengai Muzenda among a host of others sacrificed their lives for an independent Zimbabwe.
It is however sad to note that the blood and suffering of our gallant sons and daughters has to date not brought about the envisioned freedoms. Our biggest regret is that while we attained political independence, our citizens are yet to be free from the jaws of social and economic yoke. The majority of our people are wallowing in economic slavery which has seen most people failing to put food on the table. Zimbabwean citizens have been reduced to paupers in their own land. The liberation struggle has remained unfinished business more than 4 decades later. We doubt if the departed would be proud of what has become of the country for which they waged a brutal and protracted war. The collective national aspiration for a better life for all Zimbabweans has remained a dream.
Even the living war veterans have raised the flag that the current status of affairs in the country is not what they fought for. Our great nation has been reduced to a nation of vendors where even our graduates are selling airtime for a living. The soaring unemployment rate has pushed thousands into the diaspora while the remaining workers are poorly renumerated and failing to afford a decent standard of life. People’s pensions have been eroded by inflation and cannot sustain their living. Poverty is reeling its ugly head within communities, a development which has seen thousands of youths taking up drugs. Crime rates have soared amid a deteriorating economic environment. Corruption has become a national tragedy which has brought our nation on its knees. Our health care system is now a sorry state with limited personnel and inadequate apparatus and dilapidated and outdated infrastructure. State institutions have been captured to push political agendas.
The United Zimbabwe Alliance (UZA), as the government in waiting, pledges to fulfil the liberation aspirations through upholding the rule of law and promoting transparency and accountability. As we reflect on this very important day, it is key that we redirect ourselves and realign ourselves to the aspirations of why we went to war. Our liberation ethos was clear that majority rule would see a prosperous and inclusive nation. Zimbabweans deserve better.
Happy Heroes Day!
UZA was launched in March this year with the leader, Elisabeth Valerio, a businesswoman declaring her interest to run for the presidency in 2023.
