A new political party will be officially launched at Hillbrow Theatre in Johannesburg on Saturday 28 March.

Mthwakazi Democratic Alliance (MDA) will compete for the Matebeleland vote with parties like Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) and Mthwakazi Liberation Front (MLF).

The formation of MDA was revealed in an invite sent to Media houses by the party's Secretary General, Thulani Sibanda.

Nothing much has been revealed about the party's leadership and its ideologies.

The other Matebeleland parties are pursuing the agenda of dividing Zimbabwe into two after realising that the Zanu-PF led government was not willing to equally serve the people of Matebeleland region.

Ever since Zimbabwe attained independence from colonial rule, people in Matabeleland have been treated as second-class citizens particularly in all sectors of economic development.

The gruelling history dating back from the Gukurahundi atrocities and a plethora of other forms of grim disregard of rule of law against the people of Mthwakazi has forced them to rise up for their rights and secede from Zimbabwe along known and accepted national boundaries.
