It is true that if Zimbabwe had respected all Zimbabweans and treated them equally from the onset of 1980 independence, our Nation would be stronger, richer, prouder and counted among noble Nations of this planet. It is too late now to hope that the ruling mentality of current Zimbabwe will one day change this tribal bias even with Tsvangirai in power.
History has proven that a Nation is only respected if itâ€™s youths stand up and sacrifice their lives for an ideal result which is the independence from colonialism by another black man. I know war very well and I hate it and its consequences. But as long ago as far back human history can take us, an armed ruler has never shown any respect for the plight of a weak defenceless tribe. Even the United Nations has no respect for people who want to settle well known problems peacefully unless there is eminent danger presented. I do not know why, but it is real.
I am a victim of the Gukurahundi in Midlands and I am a living witness that the United Nations left us to be butchered by Mr Mugabe and his Zanu tribalists. These tribalists will never accept a negotiated settlement pertaining the freedom of the Ndebele. What I know very well is that Mugabe and his Zanu will only consider a negotiation once they too can not sleep in their houses with their wives and children. As long as there is an armed security man on Mr Mugabe's gate backed by the United Nations, the Ndebele can cry as loud as they wish and they wonâ€™t get freedom.
Nzimu is Kalanga but lives in Johannesburg where he is constantly mocked for being a foreigner. Mugabe lives in a palace with his wife in Harare and still Nzimu believes Mugabeâ€™s Judges can effect a political decision to grant the Ndebele freedom.
I was born in Rhodesia and I know that Mugabe himself found out that an armed ruler needs overwhelming military force to knock sense into his brain. Ian Smith, like Mugabe, never thought that other human beings were capable of pressuring him to respect others. He was armed and arrogant, but Mugabe and Nkomo came with overwhelming force.
Again, I know war and I hate it, but, there is a time in life when things are pushed too far that there is no any other solution other than force.
My quick reply to Nzimu is that Mugabe will never even listen to a court settlement that grants Matebeleland freedom. I hate war, but, to that effect, only force can make Zimbabwean rulers respect the Ndebele.
