Why Mashonaland parties must not be voted in Mthwakazi

During the so called 2018 water shed elections, the pro Mthwakazi people must exercise their wisdom in shutting out the Mashonaland parties chief among them being ZANU PF, MDC T and the Mujuru party among others. The reasons below would show that since the advent of Zimbabwe all projects that have been implemented by these colonial parties in Mthwakazi were intended to disadvantage the people of Matebeleland.

Firstly, ZANU PF was created to destroy the Ndebele Kingdom and anyone associated with that. This is seen in the 1979 grand plan, whereby ZANU PF founding members including Robert Mugabe noted that no Ndebele shall lead Zimbabwe in spite of qualifications politically that one may possess. The plan state that, all Ndebeles who are involved in politics shall be given weak positions like Deputy President and the National Chairperson. This has been witnessed in ZANU PF. The deputy president of ZANU PF was Phelekezela Mphoko. Under normal situations he was supposed to take over, but because of the blood running in his vains, the Shonas in military ensured that, this did not happen.

In the case of MDC T, Deputy President Thokozani Khuphe was expected to take over from Tsvangirai, but because she was from Matebeleland, Tsvangirai had to appoint another Deputy President outside conference who is a Shona and who happens to be Advocate Nelson Chamisa. This shows that, even the opposition political parties have the mentality of ZANU PF and they are partners in implementing the 1979 grand plan.

For example ZANU PF have destroyed our culture through the deployment of Shonas in influencial positions. This have killed the social systems of Matebeleland as well as the economy and other sectors of development. In clinics people of Matebeleland are given wrong medications leading to more deaths due to language barrier that exists between nurses and doctors and recipients of services.
