Chamisa known for abusing his wife & imposing Shona leaders in Matabeleland - MLO

Chamisa's abuse of women including his own wife and imposition of Shona leaders in Matabeleland particularly in Bulawayo Province borders on sexism, tribalism, incivility, human rights abuse and oppression. Here is a young politician who lives in the stone age! There is no excuse for abusing women and denying people of Matabeleland their right to control their destiny.

In the full glare of the public and cameras, Chamisa snatched the microphone from his wife, Sithokozile Thabethe- Chamisa in the middle of her speech at an MDC 20th Anniversary celebration much to the astonishment of on lookers. 'Zvakwana' (that's enough), he said to a confused, shocked and humiliated wife after grabbing the mike.

In another incident of clear hatred, abuse of Ndebele women and tribalism, last year he sent MDC youth to burn Thokozani Khupe inside a thatched house in Buwera. She was saved by the rain that extinguished the flames.

On a daily basis we see open letters, petitions and opinion pieces written by disgruntled Matabeles addressed to Nelson Chamisa requesting him to intervene  and solve the leadership crisis in Bulawayo Province.

Do these people ever ask themselves why Chamisa does not even bother to respond to their grievances let alone solve them?

Well, we remind them that this happens and will always happen when people make the biggest political blunder of supporting a political party and leaders that do not represent their interests, a political party with a hidden agenda against them.

Here is the truth: in the eyes of Chamisa and the rest of tribalists from Mashonaland, what is happening in Bulawayo is not a problem at all but a big achievement as far as the advancement of the Grand Plan to capture Matabeleland, dominate and oppress Matabeles is concerned.

To them, if ever there is a problem, it is this bunch of noisy and irritating Matabeles who are complaining about imposition of Shona leaders in Matabeleland.

Are you not surprised that while the Zanupf government is recruiting Shona people to take up all government jobs in Matabeleland, MDC Alliance is deploying  Shona people in all its structures in Bulawayo to take up strategic positions? Are you not surprised that in the last 19 years or so since MDC took over Bulawayo and Matabeleland they have never denounced tribal recruitment of Shona people which happens under their watch and sometimes under their supervision both in public and private sector? The answer is simple. Zanupf and MDC Alliance are two sides of the same coin. They are pushing the same deadly agenda against the people of Matabeleland.

Beware not to be used by them through your vote to float agendas that are aimed at suppressing you.

Anyone who believes that the young tribalist and sexist, Nelson Chamisa, who is the cause of tribal chaos in Matabeleland would come up with a solution will also believe that a mosquito can treat malaria.

However, MLO would like to commend Matabeles across the political divide for being highly alert and vigilant against Shona supremacist invaders. We applaud you for making efforts to reclaim and safeguard your political space, land and resources against greedy vultures and parasites from Mashonaland. That is a step in the right direction.

Having said that, there is still a long way to go. There are two dangerous Shona political projects that are committing serous political crimes in Matabeleland. MDC Alliance and Zanupf must be shown the shortest road back to Harare and Mashonaland. The disappearance of these two tribal political groups from Matabeleland political platform would be a new breath of fresh air. It will be the disappearance of tribal hatred, tribal marginalisation ,oppression, confusion, political disorder, corruption , genocide and witchcraft.

This will be achievable only if Matabeles who are still lost in the wilderness of Zimbabwe politics reject oppressive MDC Alliance and Zanupf and unite with us to boldly and unapologetically restore the statehood of Matabeleland. It is then that we will not even tell MDC Alliance and Zanupf to get lost but they run back to Mashonaland voluntarily. It is the AK 47 that will make them run for dear lives. Ngesindebele sithi ingungu nxa sikhala kakhulu sizadabuka.

Lukhulu luyeza!

Izenzo kungemazwi!
