No Shona Person Will Solve Our Problems - Mthwakazi Responds To Chamisa

No Shona Person Will Solve Our Problems - Mthwakazi Responds To Chamisa

Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) leader Mqondisi Moyo says Citizens Coalition for Change (CCC) leader Nelson Chamisa will not solve issues like Gukurahundi that are affecting people of Matabeleland.

He said Chamisa’s claims that he will resolve the Gukurahundi issue and other issues in the region were a political gimmick meant to solicit votes.

Gukurahundi took place between 1982-87 in Matabeleland and Midlands provinces where an estimated 20 000 people were killed by the Fifth Brigade, a parallel unit of the Zimbabwe National Army.

Chamisa claimed at a rally in Bulawayo on March 6 that he was ready to comprehensively address the issue, widely considered the darkest period in post-independent Zimbabwe. He said:

Matabeleland, we have your answer as CCC. I know there is the issue of Gukurahundi, I know the only leader umfana omncane (the young boy) is the only one who’s capable to deal with truth and reconciliation in the country. First of all, let’s accept that there was violation of our citizens’ rights.

Chamisa also pledged to address the perennial water challenge by completing the Zambezi Water project that was mooted in 1912 and has to date remained a dream. 

Moyo accused Chamisa of grandstanding in order to win votes. He said:

This is one of his campaign strategies and I advise our people not to be carried away. No Shona person will solve our problems. They won’t because they want to take advantage of us all the time.

If he is genuine, he should be saying this (talking about Gukurahundi) everywhere he goes because even his kinsmen should know about his plans. But he knows that addressing Gukurahundi may not be acceptable to Mashonaland people which is why he talks about it only when he is in Matabeleland.

He added that Chamisa and “everyone should know and admit that Gukurahundi was not politically motivated. Instead, it was tribally motivated.”

Moyo added that “ZANU PF only implemented Gukurahundi on behalf of the entire Shona community.”

Moyo’s remarks are dangerous as they can incite violence.

I am against tribalism
I admit Gukurahundi was genocide.
I believe its a challenge yet to be solved.
I encourage Mthwakazi to come up with a white paper with solutions according to their perspective.
What boggles me mind is since they are disqualifying people on account of tribe ,r they not themselves practicing tribalism?
May be it's ok for them since they have been victimized for ages?

IT'S NOT A PROBLEM FOR E.D TO ACCEPT ZANU'S ROLE IN GUKURAHUNDI BUT WHAT IS FEARED ARE THE CONSEQUENCES THAT FOLLOW AFTER HENCE THE RELUCTANCY TO FIRSTLY ACCEPT AND APOLOGIZE IS A NO GO AREA BECAUSE IT CAUSE SO MUCH WEIGHT LOCALLY AND INTERNATIONALY THE BIGWIGS WILL BE WANTED FOR CIVIL WAR CRIMES.....SO UF EVER YOU THINK ANYONE WHO WAS INVOLVED IN IT WILL ACCEPT IT...

I don't think Chamisa is wrong, giving apologetic statements of Gukurahundi massacres in Mashonaland doesn't make any sense because only the Ndebele pple were affected by the genocide: A person with a presidential aspiration like Chamisa is the only one who can dream of solving this issue,not a totemless man like Moyo claiming to be a Ndebele but with naked Shona features eg Moyo is Shona name***probably his mother has aNdebele origin

A President of Zimbabwe or a prospective president is the only one who can set the agenda for the healing of the wounds of Gukurahundi. There is no other channel except when Mqondisi Moyo becomes president, which is a mileage never to be attained (that's my opinion and i am entitled to it). Even in his wildest dream, that Mqondisi cannot even dream being president. He should let those with a fat CHANCE of being president set the agenda. Chamisa is not wrong in setting that tone because there is need for healing and reparations paid to the survivors. There is a oft mentioned nonsense which appear to tag all Shonas for crimes of Gukurahundi.That is nonsensical and championed by people of low IQ who want to ride on tribalistic card yet it as clear as day and night;no one can be guilty by belonging to a tribe of perpetrators of a crime against humanity. Ndebele impis who raided Shonas in the late nineteenth century did that under certain orders of their Kings and that cannot be inherited by all Ndebeles. Same with Gukurahundi, it was not done by all Shonas. The best is to establish a truth, healing, justice and compensation commission for Gukurahundi victims, orphans and relatives

I really find it funny we brag saying we're the most educated country in Africa yet the Form of thinking is so old that even Libya looks like hot technology 😂😂😂😂 What sort of an educated can't solve an issue from 19s?

The most simple solution:
• Let the people from Matebeleland regions organise a council on who they want to represent them, people who they can trust and actually share the views, come and address to those in power about what they want done in the issue of Gukurahundi.
•If it's payments they want, payments must be made within the same year.
• If it's monuments they want, monuments must be built within the same year without an external interference.
•People from Bulawayo must be allowed to grieve, pay respect to their deceased to their loved ones in peace.
•National law must be made for to criminalise any tribalistic insults thrown to one another, destruction of monuments to each side and harmful plots to cause harm on each side.
•Communication must be made between government and Ndebeles on what else they want done which should be fair and legal (things like formation of own state is simply not possible)
•Increase Ndebele persons in government positions and other prpfessions
•Lastly a public holiday should be made after all the above actions as to promote national union after a long conflict between Shona and Ndebele

I don't understand why the government hasn't done this simple process😒

It is sad, very sad that the MRP Leader is making Gukurahundi a tribal issue. To suggest that Mugabe unleashed Fifth Brigade on Matabeleland and Midlands on behalf of Shonas is a very misleading accusation devoid of truth.

Mugabe undertook Gukurahundi to establish a One-Party-State since ZAPU had a stronghold in Matabeleland. Remember he was very close to achieving that objective and we were only saved from a One-Party-State by Edgar Tekere and ZUM.

Apart from a few misguided people who ferment Shona-Ndebele friction, the majority of people in Zimbabwe, I am happy to observe, are not tribalistic. Safly, MRP seems to want to stoke tribalism and make it a central issue. I doubt if they will find takers in that trajectory.

By the way, he hasn't explained why Shonas ir Chamisa cannot tackle Gukurahundi. I would like him to explain that please

Well said, Game Changer. This issue cannot be solved using emotions. People died and reincarnation is off the table that means the only ways this issue can be dealt with is systematic and monetary. Anyone can do that as long he or she sets their mind on the issue. Saying a Shona cannot deal with the issue is vague, myopic and shows this guy thinks low of other people

@game changer what do you mean mqondisi moyo is not a ndebele?dont mention things you dont know about,do you what a ndebele is?specifically a ndebele from zimbabwe,ndebele from zimbabwe is a collection of tribes including zulus,tswanas,kalangas even shonas,ndebele is more of a state than a tribe,the ndebeles by tribe are in southafrica
if you come to matebelaland and live for 5 years and learn ndebele you become a citizen of matebalaland

There are fountains of knowledge about Ndebeles, make consultations with them and establish who are the real Zansi, the Enhla and the Holes. A descendant of an assimilated group, a product of raids that were the norm mid nineteenth century until around 1890 when the arrival of white put an end to it. Maybe the historian Pathisa Nyathi can be of help. There are people who constitute the CORE of the Ndebele Kingdom, e.g Khumalos, Ndiwenis, Gumedes and others. The core of the Ndebele know what i am struggling to put across. That is the truth

These shonas are disrespecting ndebeles,we are powerful than them ,history is proof,when mzilikazi settled here he destroyed the shona states,if you visit history you will see that shonas had chiefs,many chiefs because they had no state but ndebeles had a king...because we were a state
ndebeles are sleeping giant,one day we will wake up

Stop talking nonsense. Both Shonas and Ndebeles equally were dogs to the white men.
What makes Ndebele people think they're special? You've been equally hammered with poverty, lack of job employment and hunger just like the Shona. Your past glory doesn't mean a thing in this day and age coz we're all dying from a harsh reality.
The same thing with the Shona, You've also shown how **** you are in bragging about power You've been terrible at using by the way. We won independence by working together coz we had a common enemy. If we actually spent energy on developing the country instead of pointing fingers on which side did what then we would go far but unfortunately both tribes have proved their failure to move on.

Both Ndebeles and Shonas suck

Mqondisi Moyo wants to ride on a tribal card yet he is not even a Ndebele. What is the meaning of Moyo in Ndebele? Moyo is not even a Ndebele name. He should leave, the Khumalos,Ndiwenis,Gumedes to champion the cause of Ndebeles. He is just an umzukulu in the grand scheme of things cannot inherit the mantle of pure Ndebeles. He is even lost in his secessionist agenda which has not found traction and appears a lost cause. Zimbabwe will remain a UNITARY STATE until the Son of Man comes back for the second time
