1. Introduction

Once again, the Mthwakazi Liberation Front (MLF) has been flooded by calls from different people, organisations and some leaders across the Mthwakazi political and civic spectrum, church leaders and ordinary citizenry on the MLF's position regarding the Zimbabwean elections to be held in 2018. These enquiries have been precipitated by the recent announcement from the so-called Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) that it will take part in the Zimbabwean elections.

King Lobengula had done so informed by the intelligence that he had gathered about the composition the invading forces which was backed up or supported by far superior weapons of death. You are kindly encouraged to read the upcoming Jonathan Maphenduka's second book, ‘The Tragedy of the Rule by Conquest: Britain's Scotched Earth Policy of Extermination and War of Attrition against Mthwakazi (1893-1923)'

It follows therefore that the baton for the continuation of this scotched earth policy and war of attrition against Mthwakazi was passed on to Zimbabwe, a proxy of Britain since 1980, and as a result we have seen what Zimbabwe has done to Mthwakazi through geno
