Teresa Makone Matebeleland needs Restoration from Zimbabwe: MLO
Published: 23 May 2016 | by Israel Dube

It has taken 36 good years for Senator Teresa Makone to see and recognise a mountain of grievances in Matabeleland despite the fact that the complaints have been repeatedly raised and aired in the media and public forums by politicians, organisations and individuals since 1980.

When over 40 000 innocent civilians including defenceless women, children and old people were brutally butchered by the Zimbabwe National Army 5 Brigade code named Gukurahundi, she saw nothing, heard nothing and said nothing.

When Lookout Masuku, Sydney Malunga and Mthandazo Ndema Ngwenya were politically persecuted until their mysterious deaths she saw nothing heard nothing and said nothing.

When the President of MLO Cde Paul Siwela, John Gazi and Charles Thomas were arrested and charged with treason and subjected to a lengthy trial for expressing the same grievances and demanded the restoration of the statehood of Matabeleland still she saw nothing heard nothing and said nothing. This is regardless of the fact that the trial was covered by all Zimbabwe media houses and it was very hard to ignore.

Senator Teresa Makone who is a former minister of Home Affairs in the Zimbabwe government is quoted in two articles published by Bulawayo24 news on the 21st and 22nd of May as someone who had just made a new discovery. A new discovery of what is termed as hostilities in Matabeleland, of people raving and ranting about marginalisation, jobs, closing industries, low pass rate, Children from Mashonaland filling up universities and teachers being imported from Mashonaland to teach kids at primary level.

According to her this discovery was made a few weeks ago when her group travelled in Matabeleland to sale yet another controversial subject " National Peace and Reconciliation Commission Bill" A subject that MLO will interrogate and expose as time goes on.

Even though the said grievances are just a tip of the iceberg, they are genuine. Any Matabele who listened to her when she addressed parliament about the situation in Matabeleland, especially when she cried out, "I'm a Shona and felt bad, guilty and think we should have a collective sense of guilt," would have shouted yes! yes! yes!

But that is before she made two bizarre suggestions which she said were the cure to the problems in Matabeleland. She suggested that angry people of Matabeleland should be appeased with devolution and that the $15billion which was stolen by corrupt Zanu PF officials should be found and used to develop Matabeleland. Really! So where and when are you going to find the looted money Madam?

The above suggestions only expose the senator as belonging to the bunch of oppressors, Zanu-PF and many in Mashonaland who hold firmly to the foolish belief that Matabeles are Shona subjects or vassals who are too lame to make their own decisions, choices late alone rule themselves. These fools think that they have the responsibility to prescribe solutions for every problem in Matabeleland.

MLO would like to put it categorically clear that those who subscribe to the misplaced idea of Matabeleland being a little colony of Zimbabwe will be shocked like Senator Teresa Makoni. She learnt the hard way that it’s not Cde Paul Siwela and MLO alone who are demanding freedom in Matabeleland but the people of Matabeleland at large.


There are many surprises along the way.


Izenzo kungemazwi!

Siyaphambili!
