'The Shona will knife the Shona' - Nkomo Prophesy 1983

It wasn't hard for Joshua Nkomo to Prophesy in 1983 that Mugabe's exit would be essenced by tribalism. In his 1983 London letter to President Mugabe, Joshua Nkomo wrote some Autistic Hallucinations - which have come to Prophetically pass in 2017.

" You do not teach young people to be contemptuous of human life and expect them to respect yours."

" The people of Murewa may have not yet felt the bayonets of the Fifth Brigade, but they have already heard the stories. In their faces is the fear that one day this party army may be turned against them. It is certain that some ZANU members fear that the Fifth Brigade may be turned against ZANU and that it may even turn against its creators."

-"…SOME ZANU MEMBERS FEAR THAT THE FIFTH BRIGADE MAY BE TURNED AGAINST ZANU AND THAT IT MAY EVEN TURN AGAINST ITS CREATORS."

-"THAT IT MAY EVEN TURN AGAINST ITS CREATORS!!!"
When the Karanga turned against Zezuru hegemony in September 2017, I sensed that Joshua Nkomo had proven to be a prophet. Mnangagwa who was Mugabe's top Gukurahundi lieutenant against the Ndebele in 1983, had just been told by Mrs Mugabe that the Zezuru were unconquerable. Mnangagwa, the Karanga, had spent a week running on foot, crossing borders into foreign lands after being warned of death by Mugabe's team.

This is exactly what Nkomo had foreseen three decades earlier. Tribalism is not sustainable. Today Mnangagwa is doing with the Karanga what Mugabe was doing with the Zezuru. This is not what we fought for. Zapu did not fight to create tribalism in Zimbabwe. Zapu did not fight to create Black hegemony over another Black as the situation is in Bulawayo Companies, Police, Judiciary, and employment opportunities of today.

How ever, Saint Joshua Nkomo the prophet made another prophesy again, he said the young people of this country will rise up and take over from the old, shameless and ruthless elders. I have no doubt that this was a prophesy about Nelson Chamisa, a young Karanga who does not fear to reference the wisdom of Joshua Nkomo every time he gets a microphone. We do not want to be ruled by tribal War Lords of Zanu. Tribalism is a Stone Age tool which has no place in futuristic Zimbabwe.
