Seeking justice has nothing to do with Shonas... don't be fooled by zanu-pf,..e perprators shld b arrested like Sadaam not killing anyone.

The voices like this one of tribalism are what makes maShona simply support what you hate and you will forever be bitter.

You're the ones who create hatred and divisions amongst Zimbabweans claiming you want Justice for things like gukurahundi. A lot of people from matebeleland would want to get the opportunity of getting into the rest of Zimbabwe killing Shona people in the name of seeking justice for gukurahundi. Go to SA and see how much ndebeles who came from Zimbabwe so hurt fellow Zimbabweans they meet that side.

We're one people and should love one another otherwise munofa nebitterness.
Remember: He who goes on a journeyman of revenge must dig two graves.

These guys are wasting their money and time. They will never win no matter what. They are just too small in the political game. Big fish eat small fish like them. In Zimbabwe we have over 100 political parties. What for? The politics in this country is so weak that no matter who you give the throne. We will always suffer. Africans are just not capable of running a state properly. Look at SA. People think it's good because of the president, but no. It's because of the whites and Indians wgo live there and control everything. That's why racism still exists there and not here in Zimbabwe. Mugabe wanted indigenisation but it failed because blacks are too weak minded to develop anything or come up with new great ideas. My point here is. REMOVE ZANU PF AND PUT SOMEONE BETTER LIKE OUR GREAT ENGINEERS OR MAYBE A WHITE PERSON FOR A CHANGE!
