MHRRM condemns arrest of Mzila and Sons

1893 Mthwakazi Human Rights Restoration Movement  take this opportunity to condemn the arrest of Moses Mzila Ndlovu and his two sons on trumped up charges of robbery.

It is alleged that Mzila and sons caught a firewood poacher in their farm who is currently employed in the nearby farm, detained him and later released him.

Upon release he ran to Figtree Police Station and reported that Mr Ndlovu and his sons robbed him his J7 phone. 

Moses Mzila Ndlovu is known for vigorously addressing issues affecting the people of Matebeleland particularly the Matebeleland Gukurahundi Genocide. He is  loud and clear on issues surrounding the Gukurahundi Genocide that saw about 50 000 to 100 000 innocent and law abiding people being mercilessly butchered in Matebeleland and Midlands post independence in Zimbabwe under the leadership of Robert Mugabe. 

Emerson Mnangagwa was Mugabe's hench-man at the time and Mzila revealed, while in the UK, that he declined an approach by Mnangagwa to work under him and his government on the Genocide issue. 

It is believed that this arrest comes as a way to silence the brave leader as he is fresh from the UK Gukurahundi Genocide conference which was held on the 3rd of November 2018 organised by 1893 MHRRM, where he called on the setting up of an Independent UN Commission to investigate the genocide and get the perpetrators of Matebeleland Gukurahundi Genocide arrested.

It is however disappointing that the government of Zimbabwe continues on a warpath to abuse the people of  Matebeleland to further and implement their 1979 Grand plan and its subsequent reviews. Chief Vezi Maduna is under attack from the state for having written a letter to Mnangagwa challenging other forms of genocide currently at play that include economic and cultural genocide.

It is evident that the genocidal behaviour, marginalisation and many other things are a planned tool to suppress the Ndebele people for whatever reasons known to the Zimbabwean government. 

Recently a Commission was set up to investigate the death of Six people who were killed by the army in Harare after election. The killings were globally  condemned and rightfully so. However little attention is paid to the genocide in Matebeleland.

The people of Matebeleland have vowed not to sit back until the Zimbabwean government and their British allies, the Conservative Party,  talk about addressing this issue via the UN and perpetrators are brought to book.
