MLF changes tune on Kingship, adopts Republicanism

MLF changes tune on Kingship, adopts Republicanism
Published: 10 September 2018 | by Dr Mpiyezwe Churchill Guduza

Good morning baka Mthwakazi ondlela zimhlophe. This morning it is important to again remind you that you all have a duty in filling the gaps in the Draft Constitution. For instance a friend of mine who is also the Secretary for International Relations for the Mthwakazi Liberation Front who is based in New Zealand commented that education is normally a competency of the central government, in our case the Federal Republic rather than of Districts.


This of course does not mean that he is correct. We have to put that observation to test against a number of educational systems of the world to determine its validity. There must be an area that you too can identify as a gap in the draft that requires attention and scrutiny. I myself will have a look at the issue of traditional leaders in light of the noises that were made in the recent past. This is because I do not believe that the Constitutional Principles of a Federal Republic could ever impose a single kingship to the people as diverse as those of Mthwakazi.


We have for example seen the contestation among three bulls all claiming the kingship of Mthwakazi. All these three bulls trace their claim to one historic family tree which is no longer relevant in the context of the diversity that comprises the peoples of Mthwakazi today. There is nothing wrong with such claims if they are specific to certain language groupings of Mthwakazi, in this case the Ndebele people.

But when they stray to cover everybody, myself included, the Nambya, Sotho, Venda and others, they become self-imposing kingship politics that have no place in a Federal Mthwakazi.


I myself am a Kalanga and therefore a descendant of Mambo. There is no way a Khumalo would become my king as contemplated by the three bulls. What if the Tongas or Nambyas demand their own kingship, the Federal Mthwakazi would not and will not deny them that which is consistent with their makeup.


In summary therefore, I myself envisage a Federal Republic of Mthwakazi that will have diverse chiefs and kings, just like in present day South Africa where Zulu people have their king, the Xhosa people there and so too all different ethnic and national groupings. These engagements or debates are essential to the establishment of a Mthwakazi that will become a permanent home and future of our children and generations to come. It is in terms of the above that I encourage you to look again at the Draft Constitution and fill in those existing gaps so that we craft a Constitution that all of us and generations to come can be proud of. I thank you. Vuka Mthwakazi, Vuka. Mayihlome ihlasele. Mayibuye iMthwakazi.


From the MLF PRESIDENT
