The 1893 MHRRM-UK Chapter is stepping up its Demos in the United Kingdom against the Zimbabwean government and its on-going genocidal pogrom against Matebeleland. It has once more scheduled a Demo outside the Zimbabwe Embassy on Saturday 28th July 2018 on the eve of the Zimbabwean Coup Elections. The Demo will take place from 1pm to 5pm on the day

The 1893 MHRRM has singled out 5 topical issues to focus on during this Demo.

The call for Truth, Justice and Reparations for the Matebele "Gukurahundi" Genocide committed by the renegade state of Zimbabwe under the command of Robert Gabriel Mugabe and the current President, Emmerson "Crocodile" Mnangagwa. 50 000 to 100 000 Matebeles we killed during this genocide, thousands were starved to death, thousands were beaten up, thousands of  women raped and millions of the Matebele were displaced from Matebeleland to other African and overseas countries.

To stop urgently the bombing, desecration and defiling of our sacred Njelele shrine and its artefacts since 1980 to the present by external cultural hoodlums and racketeers. The Njelele rain-making Shrine is to the Matebele what Kaaab near Mecca is to the Arabs. It is to the Matebele what the The Temple Mount is to the Jews or what The Golden Temple is to the Sikhs in India. It is a spiritual, cultural and a holy place that must be accorded utmost respect by outsiders.

The bombing, desecration and defiling of our shrine by outsiders from Matebeleland has been an on-going systematic pogrom of the violation of our cultural and spiritual rights by this government.

During the Zanu PF inspired Matebele "Gukurahundi" Genocide mayhem of the 80s, our sacred Njelele Shrine was fired at by the notorious 5th Brigade of Zimbabwe under the command of Robert Gabriel Mugabe, Perence Shiri and Mnangagwa and many other commanders in the army.

In October 2003 and No 2014, a hoodlum and cultural racketeer by the name of Kativhu with some so called war veterans and Chimbidos, 25 misguided Chiefs from Mashonaland and 5 spirit mediums all numbering 560, led in the invasion, desecration and defilement of our sacred Njelele shrine, bypassing locals and our traditional leadership and causing chaos and mayhem at the shrine without any consequence to their cultural desecration pogrom. These cultural racketeers are believed to have conducted some cleansing ceremonies at the Shrine, leaving heaps of stones and bones in the open at this sacred site.

Then fast forward the mayhem above to July 2018, where the hoodlums, cultural genocidists and cultural racketeers have struck once more, with an even potent means like in the 80s, bombing the site, defiling it and stealing some cultural artefacts from it as well as destroying some.

Denouncing the importation of terrorist acts and violence by Zanu PF factions as evidenced by the White City Stadium bombing during a Zanu PF rally in Bulawayo recently and the intra-party MDC-T violence imported to Matebeleland, targeting Nkosazana Khuphe and others

Denouncing the on-going systematic violation of Matebele Employment Rights in all government institutions and also in private business organizations as evidenced by the Tim Pick n Pay anti-Matebele Employment agenda led by ethnic-indexed segregationist managers.

Denouncing the Coup Government Elections that are conducted in a climate of fear and massive deployment of the military and other state security organs in local communities in rural areas.
Denouncing Zanu PF's military controlled Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) and its use of a heavily corrupted voter's roll and the on-going rigging that has been exposed recently.

Denouncing the recent clandestine voting taking place in police stations where members of the police force are frog-marched into police stations and forced to vote for "crocodile" Mnangagwa under the supervision of their notorious Zanu PF allegiant Police bosses and intelligence operatives.

Denouncing any attempts to declare this election as free and fair in order to sanitize and legitimize this rogue government whose record of human rights violations is appalling.

The 1893 Mthwakazi Human Rights Restoration Movement therefore calls on all Human Rights Defenders to join the Movement on the 28th July as the Movement steps up its campaign against the Zimbabwean government for its on-going systematic state sponsored crimes in Matebeleland and Zimbabwe in general.
