We qualify to put him to scrutiny because we look up to him, we are wondering if he is our next leader, we are Mthwakazi and we are partaking in the marginalisation that is being unleashed against Mthwakazi.As we talk we do not know where he stands. WE should not qualify because of what we have
Dear oh dear Consistency thy name is not Mthwentwehlaba1. In another thread , about the March 2008 elections, Sikhathele Mkhwahla (or is it Sikhwehle Mthembile) told Mthwentwe that all Ndebel leaders had "roped" themselves under Shona leaders and he (our good man Mthwentwe) ululated, when told that the Ndebele leaders had no cajones, he jumped up and down with glee, when told that he was incapable of thinking he gamboled like a kid in the spring sunshine, when told that Dabengwa was a sellout he clapped long and hard. Yet today he tells us that he is scrutinising
and contrary to Sikhathele's assertions he is actually thinking
. Not only is our good man scrutinising
but he is contempltating if Dabengwa is his next leader, the same Dabengwa who, to remind the public, has "roped himself". By the by is there any member of the forum and the world at large be so kind enough as to explain how one ropes himself
. Is this a transliteration from the vernacular to the Queens' english - uyazibophela = he has roped himself ! But I digress..........
I truly wonder what planet some of these people are on- how the hell do you make someone your leader when that person has never shown any sympathy with the ideas, ideals and ideology that Mthwentwehlaba1, Khatshana (or is it Duze) and other denizens of the We-are-the-oppressed-and-we-are-the-very-angry Brigade
. Has Dabengwa, at any point, in the past, immediate or otherwise ever shown himself to be sympathetic to the ideas espoused by Mthwentwe and his band of merry men?
A wiseman changes his mind and a fool never. Are these wise gentleman from the East telling us with a straight face that they have never once in their lives changed their minds about anything in their lives; girlfriends, friends, wives, relatives, politics? Has it occured to these honourable and respectable gentleman that Dabengwa has changed his mind about Mugabe but still subscribes to the notion Zimbabwe as a nation and not as some bantustan that beloved of the likes of Mthwentwe and his ilk? The old song by the Byrds (if I am not mistaken and damn blood good song if you ask me), based on the biblical Ecclesiastes (sp) does say "To every season turn turn turn, A time to live a time to die, a time to sow a time to reap, a time of war and a time for peace" May now is the time for Dabengwa to bale ship and go with Makoni.
Seriously, it should be borne in mind that Dabengwa was never elected by the people of Matebeleland on a ticket of independence for Matebeleland, (in fact in the last two elections the people have rejected him) and that he has refused to serve in government in the last eight or so years bears witness to nobility of the man. He is where he is ( a member of the Zanu politburo) as a result of being elevated there by members of Zanu-pf and not the people of Matebeleland. That he is from Matebeleland does not mean that every man and his dog from Matebeleland has the right to piggy back on Dabengwa and expect him to support and lead every odd-ball idea that people have. The logic is twisted and archaic- people should not support politicians and political parties with the same zeal, blind faith and allegiance as one shows to their football team!!
Let me say once and for all Dabengwa is a great man, he is a leader and he is a HERO. His achievements past bear witness to his heroism and most importantly he has done more in seeking to liberate himself and others than all these prelates who criticise and villify him here today
