MLF to spearhead the formation of a Mthwakazi Government in Exile

Mthwakazi Liberation Front (MLF) is said to be spearheading the formation of Mthwakazi government in diaspora amid indications the party is calling for Zimbabwe authorities to pull out of the territory before the things turn violent.

Mckay Tshuma wrote in his article that It is a while that the people of Matebeleland have been calling for the restoration of a separate State of Mthwakazi, from Zimbabwe and in the process many activities have been done to ensure the goal is achieved.

"In 2012, M.L.F petitioned Zimbabwe through its Pretoria Embassy, demanding that Zimbabwe, walk out of Mthwakazi peacefully, to avoid any chance of a serious conflict," he wrote. "In the petition, M.L.F warned that if Zimbabwe wanted to take it lightly ,Zimbabwe could do so at its  own peril, because M.L.F was not prepared to back off from its agenda no matter what treatment M.L.F received from  colonial Zimbabwe."

Tshuma stated that M.L.F went on to describe their secession agenda as an Agenda whose time has come, which they said could not be absolutely stopped by anyone.
"Is it really the time that Mthwakazi gain her nationhood and independence? The question  is whether the Mthwakazi Agenda is really unstoppable? This is one question that many people ask themselves," he wrote.

"The launch of the book of the retired Matebeleland journalist, Jonathan Maphenduka titled "THE RULE BY CONQUEST- THE STRUGGLE FOR MTHWAKAZI is giving hope of Mthwakazi gaining her independence.  Mckay Tshuma of Mthwakazi Research Institute, got the time to talk to David Magagula, the spokesperson for M.L.F to hear from them as an organization how much ground they have covered in as far as the liberation of Mthwakazi is concerned and whether they still maintain that their agenda is  unstoppable."

Speaking to Tshuma, MLF member David Magagula  said, "As MLF we have managed to establish a University for the people of Mthwakazi. We have since raised the consciousness among our people to pride themselves as a nation, appreciate themselves for who they are and as a result we have witnessed a mushroom of music groups, writers groups, other political outfits advocating for the same, we feel our resolution is taking route."

 He said their  the Resolution to unite all Mthwakazi formations is on track.
"We have dispatched three rounds of letters to our sister Organizations for participation on the All Stake holders conference. The venue has been decided and final logistics are being worked on. So I can say MLF is fairly on track," said Magagula.

"The Resolution to empower our President has been felt as MLF is undergoing reshuffle, as witnessed by the re-deployment of former Chair to International Relations, the appointment of Fund Raising Secretary Miss Nomagugu Khumalo, the appointment of a new Chair lady, Miss Prudence Moyo for example."

He said the Resolution to reach out to the world and expose our struggle has also seen MLF visit quite a number of Embassies and Communities.
" We have addressed a sizeable number of events where we have highlighted the plight of Mthwakazi and the role of MLF in liberating the nation," he said.

Magagula said the population of Mthwakazi is one hundred percent behind the liberation of Mthwakazi and cannot be over emphasized but the problem is the fear gripping the people that they can't opennly say they do support the idea for fear of reprisals.

 He said those who say Mthwakazi is too small to be a country should explain first how big a standard country should be. secondly Mthwakazi is geographically bigger than Britain, Lesotho, Swaziland Togo, Benin to name just a few and our population is far more than that of Botwana.

"We have enough resources both natural and human," said Magagula. "What can fail Mthwakazi being a State and lastly we are talking about a State that existed,although as a Kingdom and by that time people were few and technology and indeed education(scientific) was none existent. Now we are in a much more better position to govern ourselves."

He said in two to three years time MLF should have defined the roadmap and have a vividly clear route on how to attain independence.

"The envisaged government frame work must be in place and the Government In Exile should be in place. Mthwakazi Governing Policies must be in place and tens of thousands of our children should be enrolled in our University taking various disciplines, readying for Mthwakazi independence. A lot of ground should be covered by that time," he said.
