you are right Mpume, personaly during his reign i was still back kwelakithi, and if you looked at it with a closed eye just like the majority, you will all hate him and his roles. he was at work and all was scheduled for him and had to eat and fend for his family hence he had no option but to do as told by the Zanu guys this is and will ever be the way zanu operates. they tell you what to do. along the line some how wavusa isizwe sikaMthwakazi. he brought radio at montrose, gweru and he even wanted a tv station ebantwini and without him that would have not happened. our language was slowly showing on tv (and i wonder now) e.g. sisonke and the ndebele productions etc. the galas were having matebele people but now alas none of these are taking place they have been eroded and all those who claim to represent us have done nothing about it.
the POSA etc yebo gave us the negative but guys who among all mthwakazi in zanu have brought us into the spotlight except for Jonathan? all claim to be among us towards elections but buzz off when our poor people vote for them. they eat their monies alone and fail to use the zanu money to vusa us. the richest in natural resources is the mthwakazi region but all these gains are being syphoned out of us and building roads, schools and good houses in the mpumalanga. thats why if you look at the last year's development, the majority of things which he implemented were being change thru the so-called signing of bills because it was unforeseen that he was bringing down zanu slowly e.g. the media will be hard to control if its spread all over hence reason to take back to harare the radio at montrose and make sure less people talk in our language and never bring gatherings to bulawayo, e.g, galas, football games, etc
lets think again people and sibambaneni to up bring isizwe sikaMthwakazi.
NB: am not taking sides but just trying to clear the air as to bring unity of purpose among us and please not unity of purpose as defined by the Zanu pf regime!
