The 1893 Mthwakazi Human Rights Restoration Movement (1893 MHRRM) is deeply concerned by continued and sustained cowardly and violent attacks directed at Nkosazana Thokozani Khuphe by seemingly MDC-T's band of tribal supremacist hooligans, ruffians and political demagogues.

These tribal supremacist hooligans, ruffians and political demagogues must read the ever-shifting sands of patriotism in Matebeleland, nurtured, to grow and glow an assertive Matebeleland that shall not brook any form of ill-treatment or violation of its Rights.

We strongly condemn all forms of tribal and politically motivated violence perpetrated against Nkosazana Khuphe for being a woman and for being of Matebele origin.

The time has come to deal with and confront all the dark forces of Gukurahundism whose spears and daggers are sharpened to destroy the Rights of Matebeleland people.

The time has come to deal with and confront all merchants of Anti-Matebeleland Human Rights.

The time has come to deal with and confront the Anti-Matebeleland infrastructure of violence and Human Rights violations.

Those who are happy to masquerade and strut the political landscape as "Democratic" agents of change while evidence is pointing to the contrary must be warned that such activities can no longer be tolerated.

A democrat can never be allergic to divergency of views to the point of nurturing and deploying an infrastructure of violence and terror on those who differ with their opinions and hide by constant cynical public condemnation statements of such thuggery that are devoid of any practical steps taken to root out that ugly infrastructure of violence and mayhem that treat the people of Matebeleland as subhuman.

The gravity and scale of these tribal, political and male chauvinist motivated attacks on Nkosazana Khuphe for expressing and exercising her divergent political views, in a dignified way, are deeply worrying and are symptomatic of Zimbabwe's deep-seated and or deep-rooted structural tribalist politics that has long been pioneered, cultivated and nurtured by Gukurahundist Zanu PF since its formation in 1963.

Joshua Mqabuko Nyongolo Nkomo, his peers and many others after him have suffered these attacks in the past much to the detriment and suffocation of Matebele Rights. This hegemony status quo of wanton violation of Matebele Rights can no longer be accepted. Every generation has its trials and tribulations to deal with and overcome. These trials and tribulations invoke on such generations a generational mandate to deal with, confront and overcome those trials and tribulations thrust on their generational shoulders. The New Matebele generation has a generational mandate and a generational duty to reverse any forms of discrimination, tribal hegemony and the violation of the God-given Rights of the Matebele people.

The New Matebele Man has a generational mandate and a generational duty to Restore the Human Rights and dignity of our people. And this generational mandate and generational duty, pursued by 1893 MHRRM roaders and adherents, disregards organizational ideological differences between and among the people of Matebeleland but pursues and advances the Restoration and the protection of the sacred Human Rights of our people against its aggressors and violators.

As such, we strongly urge Chamisa and his MDC-T outfit as well as his Alliance partners to bring the merchants and agents of this tribally motivated violence on Nkosazana Khuphe to a screeching halt. She has a Right to exercise her political Rights the way she deems fit. And she must be proud to be a Matebele woman and not be made to feel that it is a shame to be a woman of Matebele origination. And she has handled herself with dignity of the highest order, in the process shaming and exposing her detractors for who they really are, that is the undemocratic political malcontents who sing "democracy" while exercising and preaching violence in broad daylight.

Therefore, there is a call for MDC-T and its Alliance partners and Zanu PF and its security organs to abandon this tribal and sectarian motivated violence on Matebeleland people, whose sole purpose is to help them conquer and retain political power at all costs by appealing to the most beastly and savage instincts of human species.

There is no just and moral cause that justifies such thuggish and violent behaviour and disrespect for women in the name of "Democratic Change" or in the name of "sovereignty" and "independence".

Chamisa and MDC-T must dismantle, as a matter of urgency, their violent instrument of terror, the Vanguard militia while Zanu PF must disband its violent Youth militias of terror as well as withdraw, from villages, the deployed army units and intelligence operatives used to instil fear in local communities.

At the same time, Zanu PF and its blood-letting apparatchiks, must allow the Matebeles, as a matter of urgency, to declare and observe a Matebele "Gukurahundi" Genocide Memorial Day in January 2019 which should be observed yearly. Alongside the observation of this day will be erection of Matebele Genocide Memorial Monuments across the length and breadth of Matebeleland by the people of Matebeleland without any form of interference.
