WHY THE PEOPLE OF MTHWAKAZI ARE EXCLUDED FROM ACCESSING NURSING TRAINING IN ZIMBABWE


Baka Mthwakazi!


I am one of those people who are horrified by the exclusionary effects of selective recruitment to nurse training in the hospitals within Mthwakazi. However, I am not surprised.


Why am I not surprised? Simply because it is not the first time we have heard about such things and definitely not the last.


We should all recall that from day one in April 1980, the ZANU-PF regime began implementing its Grand Plan designed to effect Shona hegemony and power aimed specifically at stripping all within Mthwakazi of real citizenship rights.


So like all the people who are shocked by the recruitment shenanigans favouring the Shona ethnic majority over the people of Mthwakazi, I am equally horrified, not only by the act itself, but the discovery of the naked truth by a lot of people from Mthwakazi, that all of us in Mthwakazi are not considered as Zimbabwean citizens, and that we have been in this situation for 40 years.


All you have to do is to cast your eyes back into our history of subjugation under Shona majority government and see if you are not shocked to discover that genocide, ethnic cleansing, rape, torture, the mass live burials, and more; were all inflicted on the people of Mthwakazi because they are not considered as equal citizens. In fact, they are not wanted.


It does not matter what other criteria you use to discover the degree in which all of the people of Mthwakazi have been subjugated since 1980, whether as members of parliament, ministers and so forth, they were either killed or forced to flee, not for any other reason other than that they did not belong to the majority tribe, the Shona.


The people of Mthwakazi have suffered the most egregious crimes in the hands of the Zimbabwean government. Some were forced to dig your own grave and then buried alive; others were thrown alive into a disused mine shafts; young pregnant women were bayonetted alive to reveal a still moving fetuses; and others were burnt alive in a huts. Even animals do not deserve those kinds of death.


To the tribal organisation that is ZANU-PF, denying you the right to become a nurse is the least pain they could inflict on you. In fact, they may even be surprised why you are suddenly making this an issue, since worse things have been happening to you in the past 40 years or so.


We have been here before, whether we shout and beg, it will not help because we are viewed as foreigners in our own land. One of their deputy ministers recently said so and people thought he had misspoke. He did not misspeak. He stated the unofficial position of the government of Zimbabwe.


The question then is how best can we address our statelessness? Some from Mthwakazi want to become members of parliament of Zimbabwe in the hope that their presence there would somehow improve the lot of our people. Basically, Mthwakazi parliamentarians, past and present and those who may become so in the future serve no other purpose than to give a veneer of legality to a continuing crime against humanity whose victim are the people of Mthwakazi. They serve only to delay our emancipation.


Yet there are others who throw devolution into the argument. What devolution? There is no devolution. Period!  All you need do is to take time and read the Constitution of Zimbabwe for yourself. You will be shocked to discover that there will never be any devolution in Zimbabwe.


The only solution, as I have always said a zillion times, is a two state solution. That is the reality of the current situation. We are two nations that have failed to coexist. The hatred of the majority is intense and unrelenting. All we have been doing all these years is to pull wool over our own eyes. The inter-ethnic relations in Zimbabwe have irretrievably broken down. So it is best for both the Shona and the people of Mthwakazi to part ways amicably and to do so soon.


For the Shona people, that separation would have two huge advantages: they will have yet another democratic, rich and stable neighbor to their south; and they will be liberated from their ethnic hatred of the people of Mthwakazi which in turn might see them focusing on addressing their political and economic problems. For now they are focusing too much on the people of Mthwakazi yet their country is rotting.


As the MLF, we have been saying all along that we need all Mthwakazi based organisations to come together and agree on the kind of Mthwakazi we would like to live in. We do not want to repeat the mistake of ZAPU which gallantry executed the liberation struggle without envisioning the kind of post-colonial polity they wanted to live in. To this end, we have produced a draft constitution for the linguistically diverse and great people of Mthwakazi.


We have argued as the MLF that we need to begin building our own institutions to spearhead and fast track the liberation of Mthwakazi.


We cannot really in this day in age, unless we believe in the fake politics of those among us seeking to perpetuate our subjugation, fail to have our own educational and training institutions, etc. so as to educate and train our own people, instead of always crying for devolution and for the oppressors to feel pity for us.


As the MLF, we have proposed for the establishment of the Mthwakazi Sovereign Fund (MSF) that will fund the education of all our people and generations to come, including infrastructural investments in all the fields;  roads, clinics, hospitals, schools, airports and so forth.


We are also working on creating our own statistics department to understand the population dynamics and needs of our people.


We urgently need to have a leadership interface for all Mthwakazi organisations,  followed by Mthwakazi Constitutional Conference to debate and  adopt a Constitution for Mthwakazi.

From then forward, let us begin to practice democracy among the various political organisations or formations, present and those to emerge in the future without fear or favour.


It is only this bold move of adopting a Constitution for the Federal Republic of Mthwakazi that will lead to the establishment of the Federal Republic Mthwakazi, legally and peacefully. 


I thank you.
