The Congress of SA Trade Unions (Cosatu) in KwaZulu-Natal has condemned a decision by the Ethekwini Municipality to deny Zimbabweans in the city permission to stage a march today.
Zimbabweans aligned to the opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) were to march to highlight the plight of their fellow countrymen and the latest attacks against foreign nationals in South Africa. Cosatu's provincial secretary Zet Luzipho says the municipality should have tightened security and allowed the march to take place.
If this so called Zulus are indeed our cousins then where is that brotherhood? Unkulunkulu akakabakatsi ngoswazi basazoyifunda ivaliwe.
When Mugabe unleashed the 5th brigade on our doorsten they ran amok on us like hungry hyenas raping our mothers, sisters and daughters, killing our brothers and fathers. They showed no remorse in all their activities, to them it was onother shift at work. This is the reason why we have come to hate abesitshoneni not of who they are but of what they have done. They have counter claimed that we did the same through our ancestors who came to their land with Mzilikazi and have accused us of stealing their cattle and women. One thing that strikes me about the Mthwakazi nation is that our leaders were not that barbaric, instead of raping and maiming those we encountered and defeated we infact pardoned them and incorperated them into our society and we lived happily ever after. Check this out1 The same tactic that the Shona's used gainst us is the same tactic that the South African's led by the Zulu's are now using. They both claimed that we are stealing their goods and taking away their women, they both maimed and continue to maim or people burning them alive and shooting them from behind. They both have set mobs against our people and have failed to apologise and take responsibility. Mugabe said 'yes' it was a moment of madness and the South Africans say 'yes' its a buch of thugs being fed up with their social problems which enamate from the influx of Zimbabwean illegal immigrants.
Sizwesakithi how sad that the people we think are our kith and kin have turned to be our worst nightmare.Instead of aknowledging that our people are refugees they turn around and address their Baas and say our people are illegal immigrants, they sit in the United nations security council and fool the world on their constitution that means nothing practically. Human Rights? Where is a place one can find human rights in South Africa? A place where women are raped every 3 seconds and many thousands succumb to gun crime every month. A place where a police docket can disappear infront of the judge. Young boys are sold to deathrow prisoners for sex in jails.........where is their democracy? can someone with their right senses please tell me.
Yes we suffer today but let them be warned that we went through Gugurahundi, we have reflected on it and what we are going through now does not frighten us a bit. We have grown now, we have knowledge and we can pull strings from anywhere.
