MLF's Solidarity Message to uLoyiko
Published: 02 May 2017 | by Chrispen Nyoni ,cMLF Spokesperson

SOLIDARITY MESSAGE FOR THE THREATENED ULOYIKO ACTORS (ON GUKURAHUNDI GENOCIDE)

 

Introduction

 

As MLF, we learnt with shock that there were threats that were directed at Siphesakhe Youth Organisation (SYO), particularly Ayanda Manala and Yanga Mhluzi. The threats made cited that the SYO should stop dramatizing the Gukurahundi Genocide as doing so would put them into danger. It is by no coincidence that the threats came from Zanu PF merchants of suppression of anything that touches their master, Zanu PF.

 

Acknowledgement

 

The threats to SYO, is on its own an approval that the message and extent of the play has reached the executioners of the Gukurahundi Genocide. Mthwakazi peoples will never stop supporting SYO simply because someone does not like and want the world to know what Zanu PF did to the Mthwakazi peoples. Mthwakazi peoples will support SYO and its uLOYIKO play for all to see, know and learn what Zanu PF did. The Uloyiko play must be used to expose the executioners to the world (Europe, Asia, America and African) respectively.

 

Motivation

 

The advent of the threats saves as a motivation to Mthwakazi peoples as it comes in as a sign of acknowledgement by the regime that executed the Gukurahundi Genocide. No amount of threats will deter all those who are in support of SYO but the peoples are motivated to go an extra mile in supporting the uLoyiko play.

 

In Zanu PF will, an operation code named ‘Gukurahundi’, which means ‘Operation-Eliminate-the-Chaff’, hundreds of thousands of Mthwakazi peoples were butchered in cold blood. They were all motivated by that as no one from the unaffected tribe ever voiced some concern over the atrocious act, so why should it become a crime to talk about let alone a play be created to tell the sad story?

 

Efforts unraveling


The Gukurahundi Genocide as popularly known, has had a British academic studying it (recently) and has accused both the Zimbabwean and British governments of turning a blind eye on the atrocities that saw an estimated 500 000 civilians in Matabeleland and the Midlands being butchered by the North Korean-trained Fifth Brigade.

 

Dissecting this statement, it is a pity that most people, some claiming to be knowledgeable, are still beholden on the figure of 20 000 civilians having been butchered by Zanu PF in what is known as the Gukurahundi Genocide era. This figure was brought out and publicized by Zanu PF the instigator and executor of the Gukurahundi Genocide. So we as the affected Mthwakazi peoples, we cannot religiously hold onto that figure as the gospel truth. The number of Mthwakazi peoples butchered and unaccounted for runs into hundreds of thousands as MLF has always mentioned. If there is anyone who doubts that, he/she must tell the world the number of the people he/she butchered or his partners (Zanu PF) butchered.

 

We cannot be petty when the evidence from the affected is prosaic and at our disposal. As Mthwakazi peoples, we think that about 500 000 peoples were butchered by the regime, period.

 

As has always been the norm with oppressors the world over and we are not surprised by the actions of those who phoned the SYO guys threatening them. It is unfortunate that once again, Zanu PF intends to miss the opportunity to correct the wrongs they put themselves, those that are being exposed by SYO, so it thinks that by threatening them, it will lead to silencing them and the Mthwakazi peoples. That will never happen.

 

It is also a known fact that Gukurahundi operatives are now working in plain clothes. It is a clear message that, these people are not prepared to listen, but they are prepared to continue killing, maiming and trying to silence anyone who dare talk about the Lucific Gukurahundi Genocide, a shameful chapter, in which relatives of victims are still not allowed to bury their loved ones, but have to go through a threatening process which enforces them to keep quiet forever.

 

The fact that SYO theatre group is the only group that has done a play about Gukurahundi Genocide, makes them get exposed to the vices of the regime and we therefore encourage other people, groups to come into the party, by not stopping to support SYO, which is an option we must take, and also encourage more groups to create plays about Gukurahundi Genocide. What comes into mind is Owen Maseko's exhibition of the Gukurahundi Genocide in picturesque format. That’s a good thing to do when one is still alive. If all of us could do something, that would be the best thing to ever be done by the Mthwakazi peoples-even better than creating a person.

 

It should be known that Zanu PF has never contested the 20 000 figure, which is a clear indication, it is relatively low to their own register which we now being told they had, and they always referred to gauge their impact, and sort to endorse their officers against performance during the Gukurahundi Genocide era, so whoever proved to be a ruthless and a killing machine, led him to promotion to the higher post within the Gukurahundi Genocidal army or elsewhere within the security apparatus of zanu.

 

 

Accomplices

 

The British government as well as the North Koreans is complicit in this paining occurrence of Gukurahundi Genocide. These governments have never publicly refuted that they participated in the inhumane act reminiscent of the World War 2 holocaust. Instead they want this Gukurahundi Genocide issue closed forever, and there are some African and Western countries too, that were involved and all want this issue closed for fear that they will be exposed. To them that will be an embarrassment. But to us, Mthwakazi peoples, we want objective closure to the Gukurahundi Genocide issue.

 

Some heartless merchants of violence, in the names of Charles Charamba and Chris Mushowe are mentioned as they were asked for their opinions on the matter (The Standard Newspaper) and I quote:

 

Presidential spokesperson George Charamba described the matter as a tired discourse, saying he wanted to focus on the economic issues while Information minister, Chris Mushowe was evasive.

 

“We don’t have anything to do with that. We are focusing on the economy. I will not even dignify it with any comment, sorry. Ask me about the economy, we will talk. But I will not be distracted by a tired discourse,” Charamba said.

 

The above statements are a show of arrogance reminiscent of Lucifer tempting Jesus Christ three times during His forty days and nights’ course of fasting. So being evasive on the issue of the economy which is focused on, in its destruction gets so much importance over the issues of genocide that was deliberately executed by the very same Zanu PF which is now deliberately murdering the economy, as cited above in their servants’ words (Charles Charamba and Chris Mushowe). This is a strange political discourse, really. The arrogance is telling a story, a very big story indeed. Mthwakazi concerns are worthless. The concern is on siphoning whatever they can lay their hands on and diverts it to develop Harare at the expense of the areas where the resources are generated. This is a strange world of Zanu PF politics that also have the audacity to give threats to SYO for Uloyiko play.

 

In the recent report by Hazel Cameron titled, THE MATABELELAND MASSACRES: BRITAIN’S WILLFUL BLINDNESS, the British academic exposes then Premier Margret Thatcher’s apparent policy of turning a blind eye to the atrocities while working with authorities in Zimbabwe. The academic posits that:

 

 

 There were also a series of meetings and partnerships Byatt (was ambassador of Britain posted to Zimbabwe at the time) and his team and Zimbabwean authorities allegedly held to manage the atrocities and minimise the impact outside.

 

The SYO’s being threatened by agents of Zanu PF is, as revealed by the quote above, a perpetual attempt to cover up the Gukurahundi Genocide so that it dies out of memory of the living witnesses. On this, Zanu PF and Britain are on good books. Well it is unfortunate that all that was thought will never be made public is now made public and all those who were overtly or covertly involved shall have to be made to account for their actions. We will name and shame any country and individuals that were involved, without fear or favour.

 

As Mthwakazi peoples, we dutifully see the theatrics of Zanu PF and all those who make threats to those who are talking about the Gukurahundi Genocide and thus we get guided by the ancient teachings of our fore fathers that:

 

Eagles love the storm. When clouds gather, the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the storm’s wind to lift it higher. Once it finds the wind of the storm, the eagles uses the raging storm to lift him above the clouds. This gives the eagle an opportunity to glide and rest its wings. In the meantime, all the other birds hide in the leaves and branches of the trees.”

 

Moral Lesson

 

Mthwakazi must face her challenges knowing that these will make her emerge stronger and better than she was. Mthwakazi can use the storms of life (threats) to rise to greater heights. Achievers are not afraid of challenges rather they relish them and use them profitably. That fits into the life realm of Mthwakazi. We shall overcome no matter what.

 

George Mkhwananzi, a Mthwakazi academic in one of his many writings opined that:

 

In 1980, when Rhodesia won her independence from Britain, Matabeleland was inherited by Zimbabwe as a colonial present. The irresponsible decolonisation process placed Matabeleland under the crushing weight of a cruel ethnic domination programme. The people of Mthwakazi found themselves silently sleep-walking their way to eventual doom and extinction under a ruthless internal colonisation scheme. If something is not done urgently to salvage the situation, the entire sub-merged nation of over three million people faces a perilous future in which it will cease to exist as an entity.

 

These are the words that should give Mthwakazi peoples some multiplied motivation to fight any threats to issues that point to the survival of Mthwakazi. You find some people threatening others for the sole reason of having done a project on Gukurahundi Genocide and we, as Mthwakazi peoples must reject the intimidation thrown at Ayanda and Yanga of the SYO the Uloyiko play comrades. That’s the nonsense of the worst level.

 

Conclusion

 

History must be told so that our children’s children will live to know what Zanu PF and its accomplices did to the Mthwakazi peoples. The use of threats to silence the run of facts by the SYO through Uloyiko play should be met with an equal gesture of defiance and counter threat. Those who are the emissaries sent to abruptly stop SYO’s Uloyiko play must come out in the open and tell the world why the play must not be done, otherwise failure to do so must render the “threateners” cowards and useless emissaries of gloom and doom. The Uloyiko play must run while we are still alive and also run into eternity. It tells a story about Mthwakazi history and what Zanu PF did to Mthwakazi.
