Don't spoil our Ndebele language (lingasoneli ulimi lwethu lwesiNdebele)

Minister of primary and secondary education Lazarus Dokora must be held liable and accountable  for letting the following people spoil isiNdebele language "Blessing Chabikwa, Luiginia Shaw, David Witt and Sylvia Witt" in their book titled " Step in mental science grade 1 learners book "

As a politician and Mthwakazian it is a blasphemy and a taboo to publish such nonsense and expect it to be learnt in schools.
Grade 1 is an Early childhood Development phase whereby the learners need to be taught correct things, get correct assessment, taught by people who knows their language very well.What exactly is Dokora's ministry doing to Matabeleland people?

ECD phase is one of vital phases where  there  is cognitive development in learners, too much barriers in learning which needs to be solved by both educators and department of education but if department of education becomes a barrier, then we have a serious problem which we need to attend and solve.

The root causer of this is ZANU government which does not want to implement Devolution of Power as a system of governance whilst it was agreed and amended in 2013 constitution.

Further more, all Matabeleland primary schools need to refuse using this book because it is null and void. It is also not fruitful, it destroys, culture, traditions ,customs of the Ndebele.To opposition political parties, it's now time to protest for Dokora's ouster and resignation with immediate effect before the ministry of education becomes worse. We heard about national pledge and goats acceptance as mode of paying school fees.Enough is enough.

Kayibuye I devolution
#VoteZAPU and enjoy the fruits of Devolution of Power
