1893 MHRRM calls for another UK Matebele Genocide Demo

1893 MHRRM calls for another UK Matebele Genocide Demo
Published: 12 January 2018 | by Thembani Dube, 1893 MHRRM Co-Secretary for Information and Publicity
The 1893 Mthwakazi Human Rights Restoration Movement’s (1893 MHRRM’s) supreme organ, the International Board, hereby announces that its 1893 MHRRM’s UK Chapter will be holding another Matebele “Gukurahundi” Genocide Demonstration against the Zimbabwean government on the 10thFebruary 2018 as part of its year rolling programme.
 
The Demonstration will once more take place outside Zimbabwe’s UK embassy, the Zimbabwe House located at number 429 Strand, London, WC2R 0JR. The demonstration will take place from 1pm to 5pm on this day. The nearest train station is Charing Cross, London.
 
The Genocide protest demonstration will once more be blessed by several speakers from Matebeleland organizations, high profile personalities and by representatives from various suppressed and subjugated Nations of the world.
 
In 1983, the then Government of Robert Gabriel Mugabe unleashed a North Korean trained crack unit called the 5th Brigade of Zimbabwe in Matebeleland. This unit caused a lot of untold suffering in its genocidal forays in our territory and turned Matebeleland into its ethnic killing fields and into its ethnic “rivers of blood”. The result was the death of between 50 000 to 100 00 law-abiding and God-fearing Matebele people. Thousands endured torture and rape of unimaginable proportions. The survivors remain traumatised, enslaved and held hostage in Zimbabwe by the same tyrannical rulers who committed and continue to commit heinous crimes against them.
 
At the time of the genocide, the military-imposed President of Zimbabwe, Emmerson Mnangagwa made statements that fuelled the genocide, such as,
 
"Blessed are they who will follow the path of the Government laws, for their days on earth will be increased. But woe unto those who will choose the path of collaboration with dissidents for we will certainly shorten their stay on earth.'
 
-MINISTER OF STATE SECURITY EMMERSON MNANGAGWA, 4 APRIL 1983
 
To this day, this ethnic cleansing and Genocide continues unabated under different forms and guises including cultural and linguistic genocide as well as the brazen confiscation of Matebele Land. The Matebele rights and that of others are violated with impunity. Any form of protest or assembly invites beatings and arrests from the security services.
 
The disruption of the SAPES policy dialogue on Matebele Genocide in Harare on Thursday by the regime’s supporters, genocide denialists, minimalists and minorists, where iconic liberation stalwart Dumiso Dabengwa, Human Rights Lawyer, Sipho Malunga, the son of the late iconic Zapu leader, Sydney Donald Malunga and Eleanor Sisulu, the daughter of South Africa’s ANC late iconic Liberation hero, Walter Sisulu were panelists must be condemned by all Human Rights Defenders.
 
Of great interest as well is the heckling of Eleanor Sisulu. It must be noted that the precursor to the Matebele Genocide saw the killing of ANC’s uMkhonto weSizwe comrades in their bases in Zimbabwe as well as the targeted killing of ex-ZIPRA combatants in the army and those who had been demobilised under the watchful eye of Zanu PF. It is therefore not surprising that Zanu PF has targeted Eleanor Sisulu in this heckling game, sending a strong message to the ANC government and South Africans in general that they remain unreformed and unapologetic about the killings of uMkhonto weSizwe cadres.
 
A week ago we saw the abduction and torture of the Mthwakazi 8 Youths from the Mthwakazi Republic Party. After that we saw the police armed to teeth preventing King Mzilikazi II’s right to hold another meeting at Nyamayendlovu area.
 
Therefore during this continued unfolding dangerous militarization of a government in Zimbabwe, we observe with alarm and dismay a growing army of cantankerous Genocide Denialists, Minimalists and Minorists of all shapes and sizes in social media as well as vigorous and frivolous attempts by some governments and some media outlets to sanitise this genocidal regime. As this is done, the regime is currently responding to the Matebele who seek to demonstrate and assembly peacefully with the only language it knows best, the language of daylight abductions and torture and brute force while wooing the international community with a promise of a “a new era”, an "era" which is another error of judgement on the part of some governments that are seeking to hug and sanitize this genocidal government.
 
But the truth of the matter is that the Matebele Genocide must boomerang on its crafters and implementers. Our voice must help fuel this Genocide boomerang on its perpetrators, implementers and its supporters including its Denialists, Minimalists and Minorists of all shapes and sizes. We therefore make an appeal to the Matebeles, friends of the Matebele and anyone who is horrified by this genocide to come and join us on the 10th February 2018, 1pm to 5pm outside the UK Zimbabwean embassy once more to send a strong message to the world that tyranny must not be rewarded. The time to fold our hands and stand aloof on issues that concern us has gone. Matebele patriotism is being re-awakened. Be part of that re-awakening process. Do not be left behind. IsiNdebele esihle sithi, “umntwana ongakhaliyo ufela embelekweni”.
 
But we must all know that every generation has its own unique battles, mandates and struggles. This issue is our unique generational mandate, unique generational battle and unique generational struggle to deal with once and for all. Therefore, let us attend in huge numbers and change the dynamics at play. The sands must shift. The geo-political geography must change. We have a patriotic duty to serve Matebeleland and its interests. Matebeleland cannot serve us until we serve it. The cause is great and inspirational.
 
We also make a special request for those who will attend to bring in candles that will lit on the day as well as various banners that speak to the Matebele Genocide in terms of messages written on them.

We thank you and God Bless Matebeleland!

Notes: Who Are We?
 
1893 Mthwakazi Human Restoration Movement is a movement that represents a proud Nation of Matebeleland made up of amalgamated tribes and races that have co-existed diversely and peacefully with each other for years. We are a Movement emerging from a Nation whose collective rights have been grossly trampled upon, severely assaulted and attacked since 1893.
 
 The Movement's ultimate purpose is to restore the collective social, economic, educational, and cultural, language and territorial rights of the people of Mthwakazi (Matebeleland)
 
 Some Key Dates and events in Matebeleland's colonization timeline
 
1.       February 188: The Fraudulent Moffat Treat of friendship with Britain signed with King Lobhengula by Johan Moffat, a colonial agent of Cecil John Rhodes, at the instigation of the deceptive and colonial crook Cecil John Rhodes. This treaty was deceptively signed with the full understanding and recognition that King Lobengula was the legal and executive authority over the Matebeleland Kingdom.
 
2.      October 1888: The Fraudulent Rudd Concession for exclusive mining rights for Rhodes and his colonial cronies was deceptively obtained by Charles Rudd; another colonial agent of Cecil John Rhodes. This treaty was once more a deceptive one signed however with the full understanding and recognition that King Lobengula was the legal and executive authority over the Matebeleland Kingdom.
 
3.      October 1893 to January 1894 Matebeleland Kingdom was invaded by Rhodes leading to one of the greatest wars ever fought in Southern Africa. The war is referred to as the First Matebele War. Impi YoMvukela Yakuqala.
 
4.      July 1894: The 1894 Matabeleland Order in Council and its successor legal instrument that is The 1898 Matabeleland Order in Council defined the administrative power of the British South Africa Company (BSAC) over Matabeleland and Mashonaland leading to the unification of two Nations to form Rhodesia in 1894 and Southern Rhodesia in 1898. The Matebeleland Order in Councils were sanctioned with the consent of the British Crown.
 
5.      March 1896 to October 1897: Second Matebele War otherwise known as Impi YoMvukela Yesibili
 
6.      1983 to 1987: Gukurahundi Genocide committed by the regime of Robert Gabriel Mugabe and his cronies, where hundreds of thousands died and millions remain displaced into neighbouring countries and overseas.
