ZAPU Responds To Mthwakazi Claims That Joshua Nkomo Was Partly To Blame For Gukurahundi

ZAPU Responds To Mthwakazi Claims That Joshua Nkomo Was Partly To Blame For Gukurahundi

The opposition ZAPU party has rebuked the secessionist Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) over claims that the late former Vice President Joshua Nkomo was partly to blame for the murder of some 20 000 mainly Ndebele-speaking people during Gukurahundi.

MRP leader Mqondisi Moyo accused Nkomo of turning down a chance to restore the Mthwakazi nation before independence in 1980.

Addressing a rally in Khame, Plumtree recently, Moyo said if Nkomo had agreed to that option during the talks at Lancaster House, there was not going to be a thing called Gukurahundi.

But ZAPU spokesperson Mso Ndlovu shot back saying opposition political parties must avoid unnecessary hostilities. He said:

We will not let these unprovoked utterances by Mqondisi go unchallenged. It will be a disservice to our people to allow an unprovoked display of public political malnutrition or kwashiorkor.

Firstly, Nkomo’s generation understood their mission and political cause, which was to liberate Zimbabwe. After executing that task, Nkomo would be an opportunist and turncoat to then seek a two-State solution after thousands of young men and women perished for Zimbabwe.

Moyo is better advised to identify his cause and execute his mission to write his own history instead of seeking pleasure by misrepresenting a history he doesn’t understand.

The MRP is pushing for reconstitution of the Mthwakazi nation through cessation from greater Zimbabwe.

Mthwakazi is the original Ndebele kingdom.

MRP has shown that they are myopic to proper Zimbabwe politics. [ Rhodesia ] Zimbabwe was never divided or intended to be divided like MRP is canvassing for. When ZAPU and ZANU were fighting the war of liberation, they were fighting to liberate Zimbabwe as a whole country. Mthwkazi is lost in the maze of politics which they want to enter. To suggest that Cde Joshua Nkomo caused Gukurahundi is being irresponsible for MRP. The MRP is talking politics which even Cde Mzilikhazi did not even envisage when he migrated from South Africa to Rhodesia. MRP is sinking into oblivion very soon.
