The Zimbabwe republic Police blocked the Bhalagwe turn off and stopped the Zapu leader and Zpra intelligence supremo Dumiso Dabengwa a.k.a ‘Black Russian’ and his entourage from attending the gukurahundi Bhalagwe camp memorial prayers.
What happened at the height of Bhalagwe gukurahundi massacres, marks the place as an icon of Mugabe’s crimes against humanity. This was a simple memorial prayer service by people who witnessed the horrors, lived through the horrors, lost immediate family, spouses, children, friends and relatives and homes as Mugabe’s cousin Perrance Shiri a.k.a Bigboy Samson Chikerema headed the tribalist Shona Fifth Brigade gukurahundi onslaught.
The Zimbabwe national Army Commander, General Chiwenga was at that time in charge of 1 Brigade at Bulawayo’s Llewellin Barracks from which Matebeleland raids were launched from. He provided Gukurahundi logistics for operations across Matebeleland. im glad, Dumiso Dabengwa was present when the police blocked this prayer gathering.
This clearly chows how evil the regime is, because the same regime at the height of gukurahundi, jailed Dabengwa for years to block military uprising by victims in their defence against the horrors. This will help him as the Zapu leader to stimulate his supporters into registering to vote and having a say on their future. Dabengwa himself who knows that he was lucky because General lookout Masuku, who had led the Zipra forces in fighting the oppressive Rhodesian Ian Smith Regime, was locked up and only released on his death bed.
Mugabe and his Zanu pf are now panicking because less than a month ago, Mugabe removed Mnangagwa from cabinet as he effectively destroys Mnangagwa’s Lacoste faction, the zanu pf faction that is fighting the G40 faction led by Grace Mugabe. Mugabe gave the majority of cabinet posts to Chikomba District where grace Mugabe comes from, more seats than Masvingo province, aligned to Mnangagwa as he lays the ground work for the 17th Annual zanu pf conference in December at which we can all expect that he will arm twist the people into electing a female Vice president, in this case his wife First Lady Grace Mugabe.
She will then be in the final stage of succeeding her husband as Zimbabwe’s next president , all done with your support because you fail to read into the obvious scam,..wake up Zimbabwe!
Its such a shame that Mugabe’s 93rd birthday celebrations were held in February 2017 at Matopos a few metres away from where many of his gukurahundi victims bodies were buried unceremoniously in caves, mines and wells and other pits. As much as most people across Zimbabwe are against the calls for the secession of the Matebeleland region from the rest of Zimbabwe, to the DISCERNING eye newzimbabwevision, Mugabe, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats are feeding into calls for it because of the lack of sensitivity upon the issue because of how they handled the attempts to hold prayers.
I can see this fuelling the calls for it and at the same time , those sitting on the fence actually now standing up in support of it. Mugabe is further building up the enemy camp against him at a time when he should have been tactic and pushed for a truth and reconcilliation exercise where the government would acknowledge the gukurahundi attrocities, rebury victims, erect memorials, compensate victims and survivors of the deceased and unite the people of Zimbabwe and stop any seccession because time, intermarriage and diaspora movement have made any break away inappropriate for peace, love and unity.
If this happens, then whats to stop Mozambique reclaiming Manicaland province, Tongas across the Zambezi valley calling for a break away, the nambya across Hwange, Victoria Falls breaking away and every other clan breaking away so that every 50km in either way, you will need to produce a passport as you move into the hundreds of countries brought about by Zimbabwe;s break up,…wake up Zimbabwe!
Its important in any society to break centralised control of power which empowers a dictator and his henchmen, in this case Mugabe, Zim1 family, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats while marginalising everyone else.
We should however always bear in mind,.. One Zimbabwe many tribes, many races but one united, peaceful, just , equal society is what we should all be fighting for. We only have one enemy to this, who are Mugabe, Zim1 family, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats..wake up Zimbabwe! By Sibusiso Ngwenya.
