This comes as a way of an update to the people of Matebeleland, South Africans, Africans and interested citizens of the global community about the 380 Degrees Imbizo Demo organized by uLoyiko taking place in Joburg, RSA on the 21st of March 2017.
A lot of preparation is underway for this Demo for it to be successful. We are fired up for it. Be fired up for it! Join us to make it a success. And you are kindly requested to wear your traditional cultural identity regalia for the Demo and demonstrate defiance, resoluteness and pride.
Last week we released an official statement calling for this Demo and this week we have released banners for the Demonstration for wide circulation. The response from the people has been and continues to be a source of inspiration and motivation.
We only have this to say to the people of Matebeleland and all those who support this issue, “Be fired Up for 21st March. Come forward and we make a change! Come forward and make a big statement to the International Community on Gukurahundi Genocide! Come forward and we send a strong message to the Genocide Perpetrators that we are after them. Together we can make them quack in their Matebele blood-stained boots”.
While other preparations are taking place and gaining momentum, our theatre practice play preparations are gathering pace as well. As you are aware, it is planned that the Gukurahundi Genocide Theatre Play, uLoyiko, will be staged on 2 consecutive days leading to the Demo (19th and 20th March) and on the day of the Demo itself, 21st March to be precise. The play will be staged after the Demo has been completed on the 21st of March and more details are yet to follow.
In recent weeks, the CIA has released some de-classified intelligence information surrounding the Gukurahundi Genocide. The release of the CIA information comes at a time when we are all seized with the issue. It comes at a time when the culprits involved in this issue are making public denials of involvement and seem happy to make public merry-go-rounds of shifting blame for the Genocide among themselves, pointing fingers at each other. They must tell the public the truth, only but the truth.
We find the CIA information helpful to our cause to a certain extent. Any information released by whomsoever surrounding this issue is very crucial and very welcome. The information does shed some light into what happened during this dark episode and most crucially who was involved and the roles they played. We call upon the CIA to release all crucial information regarding all the players and forces involved in the Gukurahundi Genocide, internally and externally.
As the Gukurahundi issue continues to take centre stage in the public arena, our preparations for the Demo are gathering pace and gaining a great momentum. We however notice that Zimbabwean state agents and their surrogates are getting jittery and working 24/7 to undermine the preparations. Already some are seeking to discredit the Demo preparations by engaging in nefarious machinations and activities and spreading falsehoods regarding the Demo. We warn them that they will not defeat the might of the people. The voice of the people shall win. Good shall triumph over evil.
We thank everyone so far for their support and we continue to call for more support so we can raise the temperature regarding this issue and pile pressure on the criminals. You and us can make this happen. You and us can make a difference. Never underestimate the power residing in your person. Be prepared to unleash that power to confront evil! Be fired up for it. Be an atom bomb for change through direct and indirect action!
Lest we forget Gukurahundi! 380 Degrees Imbizo Demo is the real Deal.
