Dear Emmerson Mnangagwa

On behalf of the troubled Matobo villagers; I would like to ask you these questions.

Do you want to kill the descendants of the people whom you killed during Gukurahundi?.

What's special about Matobo ARDA which makes you travel all the way from Mashonaland to Maphisa.?

Those graves you are digging whilst you have crimes against humanity and your hands are full of blood of civilians which you and your ZANU and North Koreans trained brigade split during gukurahundi;Are you going to rebury the bones.

When are you going to allow TRC hearings?.

Do you want to continue with your Gukurahundi part 2?, If you can answer these questions the Matabeleland people will be relieved.

Why are you endorsing and allowing Trek to displace villagers.

Where you part of the apartheid Smith regime which practised Group Area Act to drive blacks out of fertile lands and if answer is no ;then why are you saying you are following a 1947 scheme to extend ARDA.

Please be warned Mr President that you are starting a war  and civil unrest.People are angry and they will fight to the last drop if you try to drive them out of their lands which is their heritage.

You need to understand the African philosophy called humanity"spirit of Ubuntu or buntuism". Don't treat people like animals.What was done to Mashingaidze at Maleme will also be done to you,Trek and your workers

Government officials need to be seen protecting citizens not intimidating them.The time has come for people to protect their territories.
