Secessionist Mthwakazi Republic Party (MRP) leader, Mqondisi Moyo, has suggested that Vice President Constantino Chiwenga is crazy for claiming that he and President Emmerson Mnangagwa have roots in Matabeleland.

He said they would not have been involved in the Gukurahundi massacres in which approximately 20 000 people were killed in Midlands and Matabeleland by the North Korean-trained Fifth Brigade in the aftermath of independence. Source quotes Moyo as saying: The spirits of over 40,000 people they massacred during Gukurahundi now making them go insane.

Why would both Chiwenga and Mnangagwa, as the nephews of Mthwakazi, kill their uncles?

Both of them Mnangagwa and Chiwenga), as the murderers of our people, are shedding crocodile tears on our people.

They are making Mthwakazi their playing ground. Why is it every time they say these sentiments when they are in Mthwakazi?”

They can’t utter such nonsense in Mashonaland because they never perpetrated the Genocide that side.

Addressing his in-laws last week, Chiwenga claimed that his great grandmother was one of King Mzilikazi’s many wives. He also claimed that Mnangagwa’s grandfather, Mubengu, was taken when he was a little boy by Mzilikazi and was kept at the royal kraal until he was put in the Mbizo regiment.

Ousted Ntabazinduna Chief, Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni said the two political elites’ actions suggest that they do not have royal links. He said:

Their joint acts and actions (make a nonsense of) the claim that they have royal links to the Khumalos, because many of the things that they have done are contradictory to the house of Khumalo. 

 You cannot have such a noble bloodline and yet when it comes to an opportunity of reassuring that bloodline, you reject it.

Mnangagwa was state security minister while Chiwenga was head of the Bulawayo-based One Brigade when the late former President Robert Mugabe authorised a military campaign in Midlands and Matabeleland to “flush out dissidents”. 

Matabeleland activist group Ibhetshu LikaZulu leader, Mbuso Fuzwayo said Chiwenga’s remarks were an attempt to divert the nation from national issues.
