Mthwakazi Separatists Unmoved By Mnangagwa Threats

The Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) has dismissed threats made by President Emmerson Mnangagwa against secessionist movements that are pushing for the creation of a Mthwakazi Republic in Zimbabwe.

Addressing ZANU PF supporters at a campaign rally in Chitungwiza on Wednesday, Mnangagwa warned those pushing for the creation of a breakaway state in southwestern Zimbabwe that their lives will be shortened.

He singled out the Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP), one of several other pressure groups in the region which share the secessionist agenda of the movement.

Responding to the threats, MRP described Mnangagwa as a criminal who should be hauled before the International Court of Justice, the principal judicial organ of the United Nations (UN). The party said on its Twitter page:

The threat to Mthwakazi people’s restoration Movements by Emmerson Mnangagwa in his rally today at Chitungwiza is a travesty of Justice!

He, Mnangagwa is a criminal, not our people. Mthwakazi will be free at last.

The cries of the victims of Gukurahundi for Justice are confusing this president of Zimbabwe. His portion is at The Hague.

People in southwestern Zimbabwe complain of alleged marginalisation which they say include deliberate exclusion from the economic system and lack of equal opportunity in various areas as well unresolved issues around the Gukurahundi killings.

*Mnangagwa threatens to ‘shorten’ the lives of Mthwakazi separatists*

HARARE – President Emmerson Mnangagwa on Thursday threatened to “shorten” the lives of individuals advocating for a separate state in south western Zimbabwe.

Mnangagwa maintained that Zimbabwe would remain a unitary state.

Speaking at a campaign rally in Chitungwiza, the Zanu PF leader singled out the small Mthwakazi Republic Party which campaigns on a platform of a breakaway state covering parts of the Midlands and all of the Matabeleland provinces.

“There’re some who, after eating beans, they overestimate their influence, groups like Mthwakazi. They want Zimbabwe to be divided in the middle, and the other part becomes Mthwakazi Republic,” Mnangagwa said.

“They will talk and talk until they’re old and dead and Zimbabwe will be here still as a unitary state. No-one will divide this country.”

Mnangagwa’s address took a dark turn, however, when he appeared to threaten the activists with death.

He thundered: “They must be quiet and work with the government of the day and thrive because if they keep doing what they’re doing, there’s no country in this world that will support secession. The United Nations recognises us as we are, no-one will divide us into small states.

“You’ll be looking to shorten your life. You must walk a path that prolongs your life.”

Parallels will be drawn in the tone of Mnangagwa’s comments with his threats in the 1980s against “dissidents” in south western Zimbabwe and the Midlands.

Then the intelligence minister, Mnangagwa described the dissidents – a small group of soldiers that refused to demobilise after the 1970s bush war of independence – as “cockroaches.” The 5th Brigade army unit deployed to hunt them down was “DDT”, he said, referring to a deadly pesticide used to exterminate vermin.

He said at one rally in 1983: “Blessed are they who will follow the path of the government laws, for their days on Earth will be increased. But woe unto those who will choose the path of collaboration with dissidents for we will certainly shorten their stay on earth.”

By the end of its campaign from 1983 to 1987, the 5th Brigade had killed over 20,000 minority ****, mostly in rural Matabeleland. Mnangagwa has never been able to shake off accusations by rights groups that he incited the genocide.

The Mthwakazi Republic Party is a fringe organisation operating largely in Bulawayo and the two Matabeleland provinces where it has participated in elections and won a very small share of votes.

It traces its demands to the drawing of boundaries of present day Zimbabwe by colonialists who found various competing kingdoms controlling different parts of the land before lumping them together and naming the new country Southern Rhodesia.

The Ndebele kingdom of Mthwakazi – founded by King Mzilikazi’s people who migrated from KwaZulu Natal in South Africa – was found in south-western Zimbabwe.
