Nhlambaloyi Chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni has come under from Matabeleland activists who have accused him of being off side when he tweeted about Gukurahundi Genocide recently.

Ndiweni had posted a tweet saying Gukurahundi was not done by Shona people but was done by the government against the Ndebeles and the Gukurahundi operation included plenty of Ndebeles like his relative Enos Nkala whom he said he has forgiven.

Opposition MLO leader Paul Siwela said, "Can someone meet Chief Nhlanhla Ndiweni and tell him to remain in his cultural lane and stop meddling in politics for cheap publicity."

Kalanga cultural activist Ndzimu Unami Moyo posted a video which purported to show that Shona people were actively involved in the operation.

"May those that know one Chief Ndiweni please show him this video if indeed the words ascribed to him are true. Zanu or its Government the whole Gukurahundist gang did not rise out of the dust.

"It was aided and abetted by Shona people who actively demanded the destruction of Dr. Joshua Nkomo, Zapu and their supporters, who happened to be Citizens of Matebeleland. These views are still very current today among Shonas."

However, Lovemore Fuyane said the people of the region must unite and not allow of them to be crucified.

"I don't think we are at the stage where we must outright condemn & crucify one of the few voices that are at least trying to shake the tree. If we do that we risk waiting for generations for that perfect messiah.

"Let people exchange ideas with him and persuade him otherwise for the time being. The enemy is waiting for us to suck the energy out of each other and self destruct while they sit back and munch on popcorn. What unites us is far more important." Said Fuyane.
