Shonas assisted BSAC to colonise Matebeleland, says Mthwakazi activist

Shonas assisted BSAC to colonise Matebeleland, says Mthwakazi activist
Published: 21 June 2018 (245 Views)
Mthwakazi activist Hloniphani Ncube has reminded the citizens that the Shona people are the ones who assisted the British South Africa Company to colonise Matabeleland and there are no reasons for them to claim to be heroes who liberated the country which they sold to the colonisers.

"You just need to be reminded about this if you are from Matebeleland / Mthwakazi. It is the people of Mashonaland precisely 652 Shona batsmen who assisted the BSAC to colonise Matebeleland and after 1980 Shona historians lied and wrote that Lobengula sold the country with sugar and we have allowed our children to learn that nonsense for the past 38 years now. ZANU PF in the 1980s sent Shona men to train as 5th Brigade in North Korea to kill more than 20 000 people who were from Matebeleland and they blackmailed us with the so-called unity accord and up to today a lot of Ndebeles disappeared for opposing Mugabe and ZANU PF and we still talk of unity which is a daylight madness and a dream in vain," he said.

"In the 1990s the ZANU PF implemented ESAP to get rid of the Ndebeles in public service and replacing them with Shonas and most of our people are in foreign lands and you see some of us working with these people and voting for them to continually oppress the region. Ever since ZANU PF took over, Bulawayo has been deindustrialised and industries are replaced by Shona churches and our sisters are getting married to them in large numbers and we still want to vote for them are we normal?"

He said  MDC Shona councillors have looted trillions from the Bulawayo City Council since MDC T took over and Bulawayo has been turned into rurality and we still want to vote for MDC again and again, are we concerned about the future of our children?

"Beitbridge, Plumtree border and Victoria Falls borders are manned by Shona people taking millions from our people and we are silent and ignoring these issues. As we speak we are led by an illegitimate government from a coup but we are still keeping quiet as if everything is normal and the question is when are we going to learn the brutality of these people? Ever since ZANU PF took over about 90 percent of the cabinet it's Shonas and thus the policy adopted by the MDC it's national leadership which also consist of 90 percent of Shonas but we," he said.
