I was born Sibusiso ngwenya but my great grandfather a Shona, named Nyamangara, totem Gushungo came from our rural home in Zvimba to settle in Matebeleland during the arrival of the white colonial settlers in 1880s and changed his name from Nyamangara to Ngwenya.Image may contain: one or more people, people standing, people sitting and outdoor
 
I however have never had problems with looking at Ndebeles and Shonas as one and continuously fight for a united Zimbabwe with all people of all races, coloured, black, white, any tribe or religion treated equally.Image may contain: Paul Ngwenya, smiling, standing and outdoor
I have for almost three decades, held a highly prominent role in Information dissemination in Zimbabwe, starting from soon after University of Zimbabwe graduation in 1994, working as the then National Head of Mass media and Training depart in Zimbabwe’s Government Department of Agriculture and Technical Extension Services (AGRITEX)Image may contain: 1 person, smiling
This was a highly demanding post which included training staff and farmers in agriculture, writing, editing, publishing and translation into Shona, Ndebele and English of staff and farmer literature and training materials because I’m multilingual.Image may contain: 1 person, text
Along with this well travelled job into the deepest and most remote areas corner to corner across Zimbabwe, I was responsible for producing and presenting a total of 7 Radio Programmes on ZBC National Radios 1, 2 and 4.Image may contain: 1 person, smiling, standing and outdoor
These programmes were, 1) Agritex Farm Diary on radio 1, 2)Tinokushevedzai varimi 3) Nhau Dzevarimi 4) Kuchengetedzwa kwezvipfuwo 5) Sibiza abalimi, 6) Ukugcinwa kwezifuyo and 7) Izindaba zabalimi. This gave me a great insight into Zimbabwe’s land issue, the imbalances in land and resources allocation created by the racist Ian Smith regime in favour of whites, while persecuting, marginalising and stripping indigenous blacks of their birth right,..land in the motherland

The family totem is Gushungo and due to this rich history, I see no difference between a Ndebele and a Shona person because I was born and raised lovingly by Zimbabweans who respect unity .Image may contain: 2 people, people standing, crowd and outdoor
This is why I will always proudly speak out for a united Zimbabwean people whether coloured, white, black, any race, tribe, race or religion against an oppressive Mugabe and his Zanu PF.Image may contain: 1 person
I pride myself in being 50% Ndebele and 50% Shona and absolutely no room for tribalists or racists in all I do and having withstood the relentless tribal divisions and assumptions all along that would have diverted my attention to the issue at stake which was to remove Mugabe and his Zanu pf.
We have succeeded in removing Mugabe!Image may contain: sky and outdoor
Against all challenges, tribal and rural origin, this fight was personal in my case, a family matter so to speak and thank God for the fearless pressure and fight I put up all these years to get my clearly heartless Zvimba homeboy Mugabe to exit the political stage, next its Mnangagwa!Image may contain: outdoor
Zimbabwe, ‘Iwe neni tinebasa’, – Mnangagwa, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats must all go! These Zanu PF criminals monopolise wealth and power, continuously loot national wealth that belongs to all people of Zimbabwe, and the only way we can confront this common evil, is to register to vote on BVR Mnangagwa,, Zanu PF stalwarts and securocrats must all go. We dont want a militarised state and generals in the cabinet.
Zimbabwe must be returned to civil rule and your vote matters.No automatic alt text available.
MNANGAGWA must not rush to blow his horn and speak nonsense like Grace Mugabe, or sell the country to Eastern power s with his zeal for a socialist state as he was not elected by the people of Zimbabwe to be a president. He is only a Zanu pf choice to lead the ruling party and complete their five year mandate to the next general election in 2018, having been installed by the same army who cheated the people out of a 2008 election victory , installed an illegitimate Mugabe regime and protected the despot until they decided to remove the despot and replace him with MnangagwaImage may contain: 4 people
 
I therefore continue to always say, people of Zimbabwe, do not relax because Mnangagwa who says Mugabe is a father, mentor and someone he will always consult, can never reform Zanu pf out of power, wake up Zimbabwe! AIPPA, POSA must be removed, rural areas opened to activist and opposition voter education campaigns, the generals must leave cabinet, the army should return to barracks and stay clear of politics and chiefs and rural structures must be independant of Zanu pf, and the UN must be brought in to monitor elections and ensure that its a free and fair election!
 
We are all equal,..lets pull together for a better Zimbabwe for all our children and descendants. Mugabe, Zim 1 family, Zanu pf stalwarts and securocrats must all go. It is literally of no consequence, retiring Mugabe alone as crime, corruption and all political and social decadence are well ingrained into the oppressive, despot led Zanu pf system.
Feeling pressured and stifled by the government which maintained a keen eye on what I would churn out on air weekly across 7 national radio programmes, monitoring my movements, I decided to spread my wings and in 1996 joined a Civic Education NGO
As the Projects officer Heading the Outreach Department in the NGO, I was again responsible for nationwide training , writing, editing, publishing and translation into Shona, Ndebele and English of literature and training materials because I’m multilingual all targeted at the ordinary people of Zimbabwe in urban and rural projects.
My past experience and exposure to the people countrywide alImage may contain: sky and outdoorong with my multilingual back ground, gave me an advantage as I did not need to struggle reaching out to target communities as I had already been working with them.
I have added photos here of some of the massive volumes of publications I generated during that era in English, Ndebele and Shona, funded by the Embassy of the United States in Harare and several International donors.
I believe that Information is power. I have walked a long road in the fight against oppressive authority, An oppressed soul heals with time but the challenge is to silence the oppressed mind. My silence will ultimately resonate in a voice that is strongly opposed to oppression, readily challenge authority and fearlessly lobby for changes that create a better future for our children and descendants, coloured, black, white, any race, tribe, religion or political orientation. I will always fight for good governance justice, equal opportunities, peace, democracy and prosperity for all, thereby establishing a legacy whose benefits will live beyond generations to follow for all people of all race and tribe .
Being an unchained voice for the voiceless and fearlessly against oppressive authority, while continuously pressured and clearly persecuted for my unquestionable stance against oppression, and, along with 35 others officers from NGOs and interested parties who all shaped the Zimbabwe Election Support Network, (Zesn), we produced a report on the 2000 Parliamentary Elections in Zimbabwe held on 24 and 25 June 2000 and knowing very well what I already knew and had been voicing all along, see attached book photos.
I then had great introspection into my life and realised, I wasn’t going anywhere under such a despot led Zanu pf regime. I realised that when I grew up in Masvingo rural areas, Mugabe was a legend and the only voice that we as children could identify instantly on radios that were played at low volume at night to avoid being heard by the Rhodesian forces.
This culminated in massive euphoria when he Mugabe won the leadership of Zimbabwe, ending white rule by the racist Rhodesian government and we moved into urban life, which we fled within a few months of doing so as there were tribal tensions between the Ndebele and Shona people of Zimbabwe. This was the time at which Mugabe’s government could have worked at building a united people, yet they chose not to.
This was proven by what transpired next, because before 1980 it was sound of gunfire, bombs and death due to war before 1980 independance in Masvingo then fleeing Masvingo after that because of the tribal tensions.
On fleeing from Masvingo, in 1980, it was literally like jumping from the pan straight into the fire because the next thing we faced was the Entumbane war 1980 and 1981 in Bulawayo and gukurahundi 1983 to 1987 then three years of teargas and brutal demonstrations and police brutality at University, a common name recurring throughout oppressive authority to date being Mugabe.
That to me is the Mugabe and Zanu pf I know and the reason why I decided to pack it in and left the country in 2000 as the chaotic Zanu pf war veterans led land redistribution exercise was unleashed. My battle continues in the first word for all the people of Zimbabwe.
Because www.newzimbabwevision.com is an information dissemination service to the people, irrespective of race, tribe, colour and religion, here fot the people to denate on issues that directly affect their lives and future and leave them ready to make more informed choices and decisions such as voting, ourmedia platforms are not here to please any side.
