Mthwakazi Republic Party Honours a 91 year old ZIPRA Commander

Published: 01 May 2016 | by Mbonisi Gumbo, MRP Spokersperson

Mthwakazi Republic Party is excited to announce that on Monday 2nd of May 2016, the party will present goodies to Mr. David Moyo, a ZIPRA cadre popularly known as Sharp Shoot for his extra-ordinary shooting skill and prowess during the liberation struggle.  Apparently the former White Colonialists recognized him as a brave and a gallant soldier that fought then menacingly during the war. In Khezi Maphisa there is a Camp which was named David Camp after David Moyo by the Smith regime. The ceremony will be held at Emganwini.

 Mr. David Moyo was born in 1925.  He joined ZAPU at its formation in 1961 and was instrumental in the liberation struggle during his Youthful days. He is a brother to the late Jason Ziyaphapha Moyo who was a respected ZIPRA cadre and Zapu official who died in a parcel bomb in Zambia in the late 70s. Cde Sharp Shoot took part and played a pivotal role in recruitment and training of ZIPRA Forces

Mr. David Moyo was in the same trenches with Cde Jacob Gedleyihlekisa Zuma, the current South African President as ZIPRA and UMkhonto weSizwe worked hand in hand during the liberation struggle.

Sharp Shoot, as Moyo is affectionately known, played a key role in the struggle of this country, but he is not being recognized by the ZANU PF Regime probably because he is of Ndebele origination.

 We have officially invited ZIPRA Officials to attend the ceremony in honour of our Hero. Cde Moyo does not know Zuma as President but as a Cde in arms. We realize that ZIPRA forces played a key role in the attainment of Zimbabwe’s independence as former Ian Douglas Smith commander General Peter Walls acknowledged that if he could get an army like ZIPRA and uMkhonto wesizwe he was going to conquer Africa from Cape to Cairo within a short space of time but they are not recognized in this country.

Cde David Moyo is still alive though he is now disabled after he lost his two legs during the struggle. But he is not living a befitting life like his counter parts in ZANLA. He is struggling to make ends meet. His situation is direr considering his condition and advanced age as he is now 91 years old.

 Apart from the role Cde Moyo popularly known as Sharp shooter played as a ZAPU and ZIPRA official, he is now one of the Key Elders within Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP).  Cde Sharp Shoot has been with us since the early days of the formation of MRP. We applaud him as our Hero and recognise him as a cadre of repute at his age of 91. He has been very active in the party and has been sharing his wisdom and information as far as our true history is concerned. Cde Sharp Shoot is a strong advocate of Mthwakazi Restoration. For him the struggle continues and believes Matebeleland  is yet to achieve true Independence as a Mthwakazi state.
