Gukurahindi mass graves resurface

Gukurahindi mass graves resurface
Published: 13 February 2016 | by Lungani Ndabezitha Luphahla


Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) Officials today visited the Mafa village in Lupane. From the information gathered, the evils of Gukurahindi still echo from the 1980s to the present day.

 

To be precise, the echo comes in the form of resurfacing bones from shallow mass graves. In a place like Mafa, historians estimate a conservative figure of about 30 000 innocent civilians who were butchered and murdered by Zimbabwean sponsored fifth brigade. The intent was to soften the will of the people for the Zanu grand plan that has the end goal of colonising and marginalising Mthwakazi. 

 

This brings the people into direct conflict with the rest of the country as many in Mafa understand that good rains will unearth those who were left under shallow graves like dogs or those whose bodies where mixed with countless others in the many mass graves.  For should be the lifeline for the people of Mafa now is knife that reopens the words of Gukurahindi.

 

Plans have been made gather donations for the construction of a concrete seal that will keep the dead in the earth. Such an undertaking requires financial muscles and like the rest of Mthwakazi, their struggle is lengthened by the lack of job opportunities in the region.

 

FOR PEACE AND JUSTICE IN OUR LIFE TIME
