Violent Grace surprises South African police

"Caesar's wife must not be above suspicion ", so goes the saying. But this is not the case with Zimbabwe's first family.

A few weeks back it was the president' sons, Chatunga and Robert Jnr making headlines for wrong reasons. The juveniles were sent packing from their place of accommodation in Sandton for drug abuse, and violent behaviour. Now, in a move that will leave power monger Vice President Mnangagwa smiling in his hospital bed, Grace Mugabe is wanted by the South African Police after failing to present herself to the police station in connection with a case of assault with intent to cause grievous bodily harm (GBH).

In a pure case of uncontrollable show of violence, Grace Mugabe waited for the cover of darkness last Sunday to raid a room at the Capital 20 West Hotel in Sandton where she attacked Gabriella Engels with an extension cord.

The poor 20 year old model sustained three career threatening injuries to the forehead, head and leg.

The democratic environment in South Africa and the strong media played its part in exposing this act of brutality. We wonder how many women and girls have suffered the same fate in silence at the hands of the Grace Mugabe in Zimbabwe which is under the leadership of her despot husband President Robert Mugabe.

What we certainly know is that in 1985 the ZANU pf Woman's League which was headed by Sally Mugabe went on a witch hunt and attacked Matabeles living in Mashonaland. All President Robert Mugabe s wives are violent. WHY ?

In case you do not know why there are few Matebeles living in Mashonaland at present. Zanupf Youth Brigade and Womens League with the endorsement and open support of the Zimbabwe government in 1984 and 1985 went door to door in Harare,Highfields, Mabvuku, and other african townships in then Salisbury and subsequent other african surburbs in Kadoma, Chegutu, Kwe kwe, Gwelo and elsewhere in the country , and took property and money belonging to matebeles and destroyed and burnt what they could not loot, beat all people who spoke Ndebele language.Many were left without homes and property and chased away to return to Matebeleland.Mrs Sally Mugabe was shown on television with members of the womens league.

People like Grace Mugabe think that the first family can abuse the people of Matabeleland in Zimbabwe and even export their culture of violence to neibouring countries and elsewhere with impunity.

We remind people of Matabeleland that the political events in Zimbabwe, as dramatic as they are, remind us that it is time to restore the statehood of Matabeleland. Remember 2018 which MLO President Cde Paul Siwela ear marked as the year of the rebirth of The Republic of Matabeleland is upon us.

 Let us stand up and take what belongs to us.Let all Matebeles throw away the graments of fear and embrace the armour of bravery and patrioticism and face the Zimbabwe government.

Lets break away from Zimbabwe by whatever means necessary
