This tribal display of Nkosana Moyo stinks to higher heavens! He is already an outstanding candidate without it!

This tribal display of Nkosana Moyo stinks to higher heavens! He is already an outstanding candidate without it!
Published: 14 July 2017 (462 Views)
His mother is Ndebele, his father is Karanga, his wife is Manyika! All this ethnic display will extend division in the country, a country already mired by tribalistic affiliations. Most people have accepted his candidacy, he is already outstanding, the opposition is farting scared of the man called Nkosana. Now if he is displayed in those tribal connotations, the other ethnic groups will ask, where do we fit in, is his candidacy inclusive of all ethnics in Zimbabwe?

He has all it takes to be the rightful candidate by virtue of his international exposure, experience and acumen. He left the government of Zanu PF with great integrity, at home and the international community; we know why Nkosana left the government of Zanu PF: respect to him. It did not matter how much we paint him as a Zanu PF project, the bottom line is that he is a potential challenger of the Zanu PF government and all opposition parties put together.

Now if his father is Karanga, his mother is Ndebele and his wife is Manyika, where do the other tribes fit in: we have Zezurus, Korekores, San, Ndau, Tonga, Venda, Sotho, Shangaan, (even those of us without totems, according to Mugabe: naturalized Zimbabweans) peoples from Malawi, Zambia and Mozambique, just name all other 16 ethnic groups in Zimbabwe: tiri chii ko panyama yehuku apa! This perpetuates deep tribalism already deep seated in our national psyche: this was uncalled for. Please stop it!

We wish Nkosana Moyo to come out as an inclusive Presidential candidate with powerful policies (he has done so already: we have read his draft blue print) to change this dilapidated social, economic situation, from the rot we find ourselves in. What we least needed to hear are his tribal credentials. They irk some of us; we do not feel included in his regime change.

Nkosana Moyo himself should know how deep, how down trodden Zimbabwe is when it comes to tribal issues. We are a deeply divided nation, divided on many and serious tribal issues. Everything is spoken in tribal terms in Zimbabwe. His presidency comes with hope, is giving the nation some semblance of change to rebuild the future. The wind of change is blowing across Zimbabwe. Is it still necessary to rub in those tribal credentials to those of us who do not belong to those ethnic groups mentioned on him so often by him and the social media? It may appear to be tribal balancing, but it does not. We are in the second Millennium; we need leadership that is inclusive of all majority and minority ethnic groups.

Well regarding his sugar-coating with Mnangagwa, these comments have been taken out of context. If indeed there is some alliance with Mnangagwa, we shall see it as time goes on. Our greatest fear is that he is not clear about how he is going to tackle the issue regarding Gugurahundi genocide in Mathebeleland and Midlands. We shall indeed vote for him. He is going to deliver what he promised we are sure about that, but will never give us some closure regarding Mathebeleland genocide because he did not promise us during his presidential campaign. We are indeed worried about this, rightfully so.
