Zimbabwe: The Mafia and Gangster Land State

Zimbabwe: The Mafia and Gangster Land State
Published: 29 October 2016 | by Mqondisi Moyo, MRP
After 36 years of Zimbabwean independence nothing has happened to better the lives of people in the land of Mthwakazi. It is a fact that Zapu and Zipra fought resolutely and gallantly for this so-called independence but the people of Mthwakazi continue wallowing in abject poverty.

We are all aware that ZANU PF has never won an election since 1980, instead the whites handed them power on a silver platter because Shonas have been bedfellows with whites since time immemorial. This is further exposed in the battle of Gadade in 1893 where 652 Shona batsmen fought side by side with whites against King Lobhengula. Warriors were lost.  More than 6000 fell in that battle. We further see their chameleon tendencies during the liberation struggle where Robert Mugabe again connived with whites to ditch Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo the man who introduced him into politics.

I reckon the time when the two were in London preparing for positive political arrangements on how they were going to work out a favourable position to rule the country. A meeting was supposed to take place in the following morning between Robert Mugabe and Joshua Nkomo, but alas the meeting never took place, a special plane had already arranged by the Britons for Robert Mugabe to fly out of Britain to Tanzania. All this was done to avoid him attending the purported meeting with Father Zimbabwe the towering leader and man of peace. 

Indeed, Joshua Nkomo was sold a dummy by Robert Mugabe and his handlers.

Then it followed the 1980 so-called independence which has never benefitted our people up to this day instead has continued to bring misery and loss of lives. If we are to look down memory lane and scrutinize the so-called government policies by the Zimbabwe government and depict, which one has ever worked for Mthwakazi people:

ESAP-1992

INDIGENIZATION AND BLACK EMPOWERMENT

LAND INVASION AND RESETTLEMENT

HOME LINK FOR DIASPORIANS

ZIM ASSET BLUE PRINT

All these so-called policies by the government of Zimbabwe have not benefited our Mthwakazi people instead they all continued to relegate our people to poverty and continued suffering. 

We can briefly look at them one by one starting with ESAP, this was the first step by Zanu PF government to de-industrialize Bulawayo which used to be the industrial hub. It was further necessitated by the recent relocation of industries from Bulawayo to Harare thereby killing the set up put by the whites who had realised that Bulawayo was the industrial and production City yet Harare was for the administrative.

Indigenization and black empowerment was a policy largely misunderstood by Mthwakazi people for it meant to be a Shona empowering program not Ndebele. At this stage, we see the Zanu PF government plundering and looting Mthwakazi resources and infrastructure in the name of Indigenization and black empowerment.

Land grabs and resettlement, it was a second moment of madness where ZANU PF made it sure that the arrangement will leave Shonas better settled than Ndebele. This whereby the land is continuously taken from the Ndebeles and given to Shonas under the disguise of a clause in the new constitution which says Zimbabwe is a Unitary state yet we know Mthwakazi people are not benefitting from it in anyway. Instead the clause was created following Shona contributions during the constitutional making process to further penetrate Mthwakazi.

Mthwakazi people contributed and brought in a clause on Devolution of power, and the parties from Mashonaland have failed to recognize it starting with their mentor party Zanu PF, MDC T, Mavambo Kusile, PDP, Zimbabwe People First and other Shona small parties. All these Harare led parties sing from the same hymn book which says Devolution of Power will further divide the country.

The million-dollar question is, was Zimbabwe not divided by Robert Mugabe and ZANU PF being assisted by British.?. Unleashing Gukurahundi genocide on our people on disguise that they were looking for dissidents. The dissidents who were a creation of ZANU PF government to justify a war against unarmed citizens of Mthwakazi.  

This is further justified by the fact that the Gukurahundi atrocities started right in the border of Mthwakazi and Zimbabwe that is Midlands.

Back to the policy of land invasion and resettlement, I quote Joshua Nkomo on his letter he wrote to Robert Mugabe whilst in exile in London on 7 June 1983 -Page 11 of the letter Point no 69 Reads" All these schemes were in the spirit of what I had discussed with you in December, 1981. I had made it plain to you Prime Minister, when I met you in your official residence; that your resettlement policy was a national disaster, and you agreed with me. These schemes were meant to represent practical approach models, to both rural and peri-urban resettlement, that would embrace everybody and not just a few who are said to ' qualify'.

I further quote the same letter on the same page, point number 71 it reads" What baffles me even more, is that , you said all the above when you knew that less than two months prior to your Marondera meeting, I had offered myself to take over your Ministry of Lands and Resettlement in an effort to assist you and through you, the country to make a success of its most vital development programme. You turned down my offer, saying I was too old to handle that Ministry, however you said you would invite me to be one of the members of a resettlement Ministerial Committee you were about to institute. To you all this meant plotting.

These words by our founding nationalist clearly indicate that Robert Mugabe and his ZANU PF party had no clear land policy hence stammered in Britain when he was asked about his policies instead said he wanted to rule and that is what has been doing since 1980.

There is a difference between Ruling and Governance.

It also reflects the inconsistencies of Robert Mugabe and his Zanu PF whom I have regarded as always indicating Right whenever turning Left. 

On the issue of Home link, we know that Gideon Gono failed dismally during his tenure as the Governor of Reserve Bank.

Latter it came the more disastrous current Zim Asset named Blue Print Policy of 2013 before July 31 election. it is in this policy document where ZANU PF had promised 2000 000 jobs but alas thousands and thousands of people have lost their jobs countrywide with the government failing to provide even a tenth of the Promised 2000 000 jobs.

Instead we have seen Robert Mugabe creating jobs for his son in law, his daughter and as well his close family members and associates.

One of the few policies that the Zanu PF government had successfully implemented since 1980, is the 1979 Grand plan. A Satanic policy. 

The 1982-1987 Gukurahundi Policy which yielded its intended results of massacring more than 20 000 of our innocent souls. The grand plan is still being implemented to this period but now it is in another form of Economic Genocide and continued displacement of our people. 

The recent case being Khezi-Maphisa Arda Saga where 26 parents were arrested for defending their forefather's land. Fear is continuously being instilled on our people not to raise their heads to fight and defend their territories which have been invaded by Shonas. 

Another reference case being the Mlamuli case in Lupane where four parents are still to be tried for exercising their constitutional right, to defend the rights and the education of their children. 

The Zanu PF government has also managed to successfully implement the selective application rule of law policy against our Mthwakazi people. This dates to early days of Zimbabwe independence when Dr Dumiso Dabengwa and Lookout Khalisabantu Qaphela Masuku were incarcerated for the treason charge they did not commit until Masuku died in Prison. 

This selective application rule of law policy has continued up to this day to our people. Sithi kubancindezeli bethu lilibambe lingatshoni, kude lapho esivela khona lani, kodwa sokuseduze ukuthi siyefika lapho esiyakhona singasahambi lani. MRP FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE IN OUR LIFETIME- THIS GOD IS OUR GOD .
