Mthwakazi Republic Party backs Amaswazi School Parents in Phumula

Published: 20 March 2016 | by Hloniphani Ncube

Mthwakazi Republic Party strongly support the brave position undertaken by parents to demand the ministry of Primary and Secondary Education to remove the non Ndebele head mistress who is implementing the 1979 grand plan at school. The delegation that attended this meeting (19th March 2016) included the Secretary General, the youth Secretary General, the Bulawayo provincial spoke person and the Pumula ward structure. 

This development comes after the Secretary General of Mthwakazi Republic Party strongly questioned the minister about deploying non Ndebele speaking teachers citing Mpumelelo in Nkayi as a very disturbing example whereby out of 36 teachers 34 are of Shona origin. These teachers  do not understand local languages. The Secretary General advised the minister to consult the local people about critical decisions that he intends to implement to prevent a serious civil war.

The parents at Phumula in Amaswazi Primary School where called to select a new committee after the previous members of the community including Simangaliphi Khumalo, Tawanda Nkomo and Oni Matamba failed to work with the corrupt and manipulative headmistress who was introduced to our teams as Mutongi. 

Mutongi was said to have pressured the previous executive to resign and she immediately appointed the people whom she could manipulate to dance according to her tunes. 

The parents also questioned the way Mutongi and his committee handle finances.  The financial report presented to parents was written by Peter Mafuka and presented by a fellow introduced as Mazviba which is highly controversial. The petty cash spent by the school was over 900 US dollars which is questionable, and it was not clear how the amount was spent. 

Apart from that, the committee appointed by the headmistress was said to be reporting stolen property yet the school has three paid security guards.

This meeting came about after the parents had previously petitioned the controversial minister of Primary and Secondary Education Dokora,  whom we believe is not sensitive to community needs. 

The parents previously convened a meeting at Phumula Community Hall whereby they called the officials of the Khami district administering education in the area and also invited the head mistress to settle her inhuman conducts, but she chose not to attend the meeting only for the ministry officials to surface at the meeting. After the head of the school had shown arrogance the parents resolved to petition the Ministry of Education and called upon the sacking of the school head.

In today's meeting the Ministry of Education officials tried to enforce the election of a new committee and the members of the community were united to block the elections until the headmistress issue was addressed according to their demands. 

The parents instructed the head to leave their community in peace. Shona head teachers have a history of squandering school funds at this school leading to the current state if affairs where the community is saying enough is enough. 

It is said that Mrs. Nyathi a Shona wife to the historian Phathisa Nyathi got away with a scandal of more than 50 000 US dollars and the Ministry elevated her to work at Mhlanhlandlela offices of the Ministry in Bulawayo City Centre, as a cover up. 

We further warn Dokora not to victimise the SDC committees which listens to the concerns of parents, the committee which is keeping the broke ministry functioning even though the government has deepened the levels of unemployment currently pegged at 95%. 

This warning comes after Dokora with the unwanted headmistress at Mlamuli blamed the SDC chairman Peter Ndlovu in a meeting which was attended by the District Education officers, the deputy Minister of primary and Secondary Education and the Provincial Education officer soon after the secretary general had warned Dokora. He prefers not to take warnings and opt for victimization which is the prime policy of the Mugabe led government. 

This is seen as a mischief especially from a minister handling sensitive issues in the Education where the rights of children to education is violated and local communities are disempowered to have a say in the education of their children and running of their local schools.

As we have earlier noted on party publications we are a political party which is determined to free our people from all forms of human rights violations perpetrated by the Zimbabwe government. 

We strongly advise this government them to take us seriously because we mean business. As a party we do not accept policies in the Education sector that promotes tribalism,  implementation of the 1979 grand plan, against religious freedom like the national pledge. If he is a good listener and a peace loving minister he must do the right thing before its late. This should also send a strong warning to all the Zimbabwe ministries which are misbehaving in our land. Its either they shape up or ship out. We can survive without them, after all we are a nation which was illegally incorporated to the Zimbabwean state. The party also sends a strong message to those of our people who are sell outs. The time to show your position is now, we are aware of some of those especially in Lupane.  

Mahlabezulu kasisebenzeni ngokuzimisela ngoba akekho ozasikhulula. sokuyisikhathi eside uhulumende weZimbabwe esihlukuluza. 

Babulele izihlobo zethu njalo kabatshengisi kubuyela emuva. Kasikhangelelanga ukuvinjelwa ngabantu bakithi kumzabalazo wokuzikhulula. Siyakholwa njalo siyazi ngokusebenza kwethu langenhlelo zethu ukuthi ilizwe lizokhululeka masinyane.  Sibonga abaxhasa inhlelo zethu ngenhliziyo zabo zonke,  sisithi siyabonga balandeli beMthwakazi Republic Party.
