Should we be marying any other tribes, later on Shonas?<p>Are you in favour of intermarriages with the Shona?<p>Are you one of those advancing the slogan: Induku enhle iganyulwa ezizweni!<p>Where do you stand? Is our culture strong with this Shona dilution?<p>What about odadewethu who go and marry the Shonas?<p>Can we ever prevent this or it is just a non starter?<br>

MS, the solution to o dade wethu going off to marry shonas is really simple. You as a Ndebele man need to offer them more hope and prospects. Some are driven there becoz of love, others simply out of economic desperation. I say economic desperation becoz Ndebele is a strong closely nit culture (probably the one only remaining distinct culture -save for the Tonga), and some of these women would not go there if tina ochomi had our act together.

MS, I think the real solution to what appears to be our cultural demise by these cross-marriages is the strengthening of our culture. I am not against the ross marriages, they happen in all cultures, but is usually kept at a minimum by strong cultural ties. A good example, again are the Jews in Israel. How many Jew-Christian marriages have you read about (they are there, but not many).<p>Otherwise trying to stop the whole thing is absolutely impossible, becoz there is nothing stronger than the power of love. Believe me I know. The first and only girl I ever fell in love with was Shona, in Harare (1994). I have never seen her since, but I think I have made one point.<p>The other comes in the form of a question. You know now in many european countries there is what appears to be anti-foreigner sentiments leading to the tightening of immigration laws. The truth of the matter is that this is their fight for racial survival. Last year I watched this science program that said if the current frenzy of intermarriages continues, in the next 50 - 70 years guess who will be the worlds most populace race - COLOUREDS.
