Hundreds of villagers from Simbumbumbu attended Mthwakazi Republic Party's rally that was addressed by its President Mqondisi Moyo. Some villagers had to travel all the way from Khozi, Maphani, Gwandavale only to hear about the idea of Mthwakazi restoration.

In a statement the party claims that some of the villagers who spoke to the Moyo said they voted MDC-T to drive out Zanu PF but its now vivid to them that, the party they used to hero worship is just the same as Zanu PF or even worse.

"The villagers also complained that the man they voted into office as Member of Parliament is nowhere to be seen and they now need their son, Hon Mcebisi Dube to represent them. Mcebisi Dube promised to work hard with all villagers in Gwanda North and bring about development that is at stand still in the hands of the satanic government of Zanu PF," said the party.

"Dube told villagers that he is very much worried about the future of Mthwakazi children who relies on South Africa since all their jobs are taken by Shona speaking people from Harare. Dube went on to say he is prepared to work with the Simbumbumbu community to connect electricity into schools and make sure roads networks and other infrastructural needs are up to standard."

In his address Moyo pointed out the need to restore Mthwakazi nation and her sovereignty. He traced Mthwakazi history to King Lobengula whom he described as a great warrior who fought the British at Gadade in Ntabayezinduna in 1893.

"Our great King Lobhengula signed for all these borders you see in Matabeleland, including the one in Kwekwe we want to restore"!, Moyo said drawing a lot of applause from the villagers.

After the address Moyo together with Dube handed over soccer balls to the three teams that had played in a tournament before the rally. He expressed the need to safeguard Mthwakazi talent that is being destroyed deliberately by Zanu PF thugs in government.
