Xhosa Gukurahundi Play activists issue a thank you statement to Matebeleland
Published: 21 August 2016 | by Siphesakhe Youth Organization


ULoyiko Team would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who made the launch of our Gukurahundi Play on the 25th June 2016 at Hillbrow Theatre, RSA a success. The support we got and continue to get is amazing and indeed empowering. As we get more support we get more empowered and invariably the voice of the Matebeleland people gets more empowered too. That is the whole game in town. The calls for Truth and Justice on the issue get more powerful.

 

We are fully aware that the perpetrators of the Horrors of the Gukurahundi Genocide and their agents are getting more frightened and scared and are doing everything to scupper this noble Project. The more they cry foul over the staging of this play the more we get support from the decent and peace-loving people of Matebeleland. 

 

After staging the play at Hllbrow, we feel extremely well connected to our cousins. We feel their support. It’s powerful. We can emotionally connect. The power of the voice of the Matebele people is on our shoulders. We are happy to share the narrative burden of this Genocide. We are one people, one Nation. Borders do not matter. There are no borders that separate one Nation. One people cannot be separated by colonial borders. In any case the fights for human rights for humanity know no boundaries.

 

Our joint fight against white domination as ZIPRA and Umkhonto weSizwe had no boundaries. We fought together. Our fight against black domination and injustice will never have boundaries. We are in this fight together as one people, one Nation.

 

Matebeleland’s Horrors of Gukurahundi Genocide are on the theatre stage and we will continue doing our best to expose this Genocide in unity and brotherhood with the people of Matebeleland.  Matebeleland’s trials and tribulations are our trials and tribulations, their tears our tears, their psychological trauma our psychological trauma and together we will win this battle, marching side by side to victory. Together we shall triumph over evil.

 

We are up for the continued staging of the play and raring to go. We are also very happy with the constructive feedback that has come our way after staging the play. We are good listeners and we are going back to the drawing board to improve the quality of the play. We will improve the product working collaboratively with the people of Matebeleland, which many will be pleased to know we are already doing. We have the energy and the spirit to triumph with our cousins. More opportunities for us to stage the play in various places within and outside South Africa seem to be coming our way. The outlook is very optimistic and Gukurahundi Genocide will be exposed around the world via this theatre play. We make no apologies to anyone for embarking on this Project, none whatsoever.

 

Matebeleland people, together with us are winning the struggle. The tremors are already being felt everywhere. It is a satisfying feeling to observe the tremors being felt far and wide. Gukurahundi Genocide is once more a topical issue. It is in the international radar once again and we are happy to pile the pressure. As Loyiko, we promise to keep it up there on the international radar. It is where it is supposed to be. It is where the people of Matebeleland want it to be. We envisage this theatre play to be like Hotel Rwanda, an internationally acclaimed film that tells a story of Rwanda Genocide.

 

 As uLoyiko, we are telling the story of the Matebele Genocide in Zimbabwe and we are ready to go places without fear or favour. It’s a calling. It’s a duty that falls on us and the people of Matebeleland as brothers and sisters. We will not abandon that duty due to howls of disapproval from the system in Zimbabwe and its appendages dotted around the world including social media. Our duty is first to the people of Matebeleland and the wider world.

 

The launch of the play did not happen easily. It was a tough challenge as resources were scarce but we give special thanks to umthwakazireview.com, Mthwakazi Review on Radio,  Mat Fund for their unwavering support and many individuals who have played a pivotal role in support of the project since it started. The support has been great and long may it continue.

 

We also take this opportunity to thank the top leadership of Matebeleland from various organizations that blessed and graced the event and gave it maximum publicity needed. The attendance of Dumiso Dabengwa, the former ZIPRA intelligence Supremo who worked closely with ANC in prosecuting the struggle against white domination in both Zimbabwe and South Africa was an icing on the cake. We were humbled by his presence and support.

 

The presence of Moses Mzila Ndlovu, a former platoon commander of ZIPRA and a former co-Minister of National Healing, Reconciliation and Intergradation who has campaigned fiercely for Truth and Justice for Gukurahundi was pretty significant and appreciated. We are humbled too.

 

 Indeed the presence of Dr Guduza who has written extensively on the Gukurahundi Genocide with his Mthwakazi Action Group on Genocide in Matebeleland and Midlands (MAGGEMM) Project and himself a former ZIPRA cadre and currently the Leader of Mthwakazi Liberation Front and the attendance Chief Gumede and the leader of Mthwakazi Republic Party, Moyo were significant and pleasing too. We are grateful and thankful.

 

The attendance of all Matebele who numbered 200 to 250 was indeed an excellent start and their presence is appreciated and will remain appreciated. Thank you Matebeleland.

 

People of Matebeleland, we have got some work to do together in the spirit of exposing the Truth about Gukurahundi and seeking Justice. We have some more work to do together in the spirit of rolling back the frontiers of Genocide and victimization of our people. Long may this unity of purpose, shared brother-hood and a shared burden of our trials and tribulations persist until we attain victory.  We did this via ZIPRA and Umkhonto WeSizwe. We are doing it once more today. Victory is certain.
