The fact that after such a heated debate, where amajaha omkhonto have been engaging and challenging each other on matters of such historical value is not only appreciated but it is also significant because of the educational effect it has upon visitors to our "ingxoxo" forum. The fact that people of Ndebele extraction(you are very much included Marcus)themselves are debating these issues and de-mystifying some fallacies is indeed encouraging. So as a parting short, bafowethu let's guard our history jelously like every other nation out there. Look at the Jewish community. Look at the Japanese. Thus, in conclusion,after crossing swords and clinging on each other's throats, we all agree that our Royal Highness King Lobengula did not "sell" the country (which he loved so much), whose father built ngesisa, ngokubekezela,ngobungwanzi obesabekayo,nge zithukuthuku zabobabamkhulu langothando olumangalisayo. King Lobengula unlike "Mbuya Nehanda" fought a valiant battle to the bitter end , and historians of different ideological stripes are all fascinated by his legendary declaration at that difficult period of savegery by the Europeans: King Lobengula declared "Now the time has come to fight the white invaders" This African Prince bafowethu was a warrior "par excellence" . Just early this year I read an article where one British educational commentator was complaining that their kids are still taught the history of someone African King called Lobengula. There you have it. Think of Cecil John Rhodes, he refused to be buried in Westminster Abbey, but chose to be buried in Matopos next to who? Certainly not "Sekuru Kaguvi" but right there next to Lobengula's father King Mzilikazi. Bafowethu we have a rich history lt's cherish it and guard it jelously.
