Mthwakazi Help Yourself

Mthwakazi Help Yourself
Published: 10 August 2016 | by Ngazimbi

One day a farmer's donkey fell down into a well. The animal cried piteously for hours as the farmer tried to figure out what to do. Finally, he decided the animal was old, and the well needed to be covered up anyway; it just wasn't worth it to retrieve the donkey .

 

He invited all his neighbors  to come over and help him. They all grabbed a shovel and began to shovel dirt into the well. At first, the donkey realized what was happening and cried horribly. Then, to everyone's amazement he quieted down.


A few shovel loads later, the farmer finally looked down the well. He was astonished at what he saw. With each shovel of dirt that hit his back, the donkey was doing something amazing. He would shake it off and take a step up.

 

As the farmer's neighbors continued to shovel dirt on top of the animal, he would shake it off and take a step up. Pretty soon, everyone was amazed as the donkey stepped up over the edge of the well and happily trotted off!


Expect less from people but more from yourself.


Pick yourself up, Mthwakazi

 

 For a long time we have cried to the international world over our situation, the closest people, who see our daily humiliation, oppression and marginalisation turn a blind eye to reality and engage in diplomatic response.

 

Opposition leaders have for numerous times reported unfairness in polls, at some point MDC won the elections and when Mugabe refused to hand over the reigns these observers never called for international intervention, or even told the truth about the outcome of the elections. To this I will say we folded our arms and only sobbed helplessly.

 

Sithi “iThendele elihle ngelikhala ligijima” at this point we are yelling for help while we are at stand still, we are showing no efforts of either running or fighting back.

 

Our running to neighbouring countries has seen us facing violence and being pushed out in various ways. Seeing Mthwakazi people being attacked is not only happening in South Africa, it is everywhere though in smaller scale. But it’s happening in all countries we have run to.  Sifaniswa legundwane elithe ngobona ukhozi labalekela emgodoni olenyoka.

 

I disagree with Mr. Botha’s statement that “…the Blacks cannot rule themselves. Give them guns and they will kill each other. They are good  in nothing else but making noise, dancing, marrying many wives and indulging in sex.

 

Let us accept that  the Blackman is a symbol of poverty, mental inferiority, laziness and emotional incompetence….”   He has to say this because our African Leaders have failed us, looking into the SADC countries when they got their independence from the colonial rule, none of them improved, instead they destroyed all the colonizers had built.  Their currencies dropped to nothing if not that they don’t have a currency of their own right now.


My heart gets bitter when I come to the fact that a country that lacked nothing, nothing at all is today using multi currencies, does not have a currency of it’s own. Why?, because some greedy people won’t let go of Power?  What is the Mugabe regime trying to prove? We seem to be agreeing with him if we will sit and do nothing. He may have given Mashonaland whatever that we don’t know, but he has left us in misery and desperation.

 

Let us gather ourselves from the mud and dust and open our eyes, start planning beyond a year, start planning for the nation and not for ourselves as individuals alone, consider the growing population  and welcome the modern technology and make use of it.


Mthwakazi, Help Yourself--Now!!!

 

The recent xenophobic violence must be a step for Mthwakazi to come up the pit. The fact that our own country is in an economic crisis must make us stop crying and start thinking wisely, with our numerous organizations (under Umhlahlo Wesizwe)  we can give each other development tasks.

 

An organization be given a sector or region to plan on, strategize, develop and monitor. Every ward being given a task to take care of. I’ve been sharing my rural development idea, pointing out that  the reason of failure we experienced over the years is lack of Water.  Many projects were introduced to the communities, money was spent to start up those projects and to our pity they died before they brought fruit.

 

Our first step should be means to bring water. Any project one can come up with will definitely require water to get it running. Once we master the water crisis people can build any agricultural project, industry or business. This can happen only if we help ourselves, collectively contribute funding first to water projects then all other type of development.

 

Therefore organisations can do it by using their structures to conduct such funding and contributions. Or, according to wards and ward leaders, working together to ensure water is available to supply all households in a given section.  In my two articles/booklets I have described several ways of conserving water, store it and channel it to the required points.


This I learnt from the farmer who used to be across the river from our homestead. He had an engine drawing water from the river we shared, stored it in tanks up the mountains and supplied a vast area he owned. So, why can’t we do it for ourselves. Surely, if a donkey can use ruble they collectively stack on him to come out the pit, why can’t we collectively build our own country?

 

Vuka Sizwe,
