Matabeleland Institute for Human Rights would like to congratulate prolific Bulawayo human rights lawyer and esteemed legislator Honorable Senator David Coltart for his compelling book: THE STRUGGLE CONTINUES – 50 YEARS OF TYRANNY IN ZIMBABWE.
Coltart’s book is one piece of literary work that shall go to the annals of history as one of the records that seek justice for the Gukurahundi genocide in Matabeleland.
We also would like to urge the people of Matabeleland who have experienced the Gukurahundi Genocide and other human rights violations to emulate Coltart’s brave action and start writing and publishing stories and records of what they endured. Without telling our stories on the human rights violations we faced, memory will be lost, the progressive world will remain ignorant of our circumstances and justice will slip on our fingers.
We also would like to urge the people of Matabeleland and the progressive world to support Senator Coltart’s work buy buying the original copies of the book. Source: Matabeleland Institute for Human Rights
