Mugabe’s sister in coma 2 years on

1646

PRESIDENT Robert Mugabe’s only surviving sibling, Bridgette, has spent nearly two-and-a-half years confined to the intensive care unit at Parirenyatwa Hospital in Harare.

Report by Moses Matenga

Bridgette has been on a life support system since August 10, 2010 when she collapsed during the burial of her elder sister Sabina at the National Heroes’ Acre and has never left the hospital.

Close family members who spoke on condition of anonymity yesterday said they were still optimistic of her recovery.

“It’s very difficult because the situation of a person who cannot talk is not easy to tell,” said a relative.

“If you hold her hand you can feel that she is strong, but she can’t talk. We remain hopeful and pray to God to heal.We can’t do anything because God has to judge.”

Sources said Mugabe regularly visits the hospital to check on his sister’s condition.

Although Bridgette’s long stay on a life support system has set a new domestic record, it falls far short of former Israel leader Ariel Sharon who has been in a coma for nearly six years after suffering a debilitating stroke.

According to health experts writing on emedicinehealth.com, a coma is a deep state of unconsciousness in which individuals do not consciously respond to stimuli in their environment.

It can result from injury such as head trauma, or an underlying illness such as an infection or tumour. Patients in a coma are unable to think consciously and lack awareness of their surroundings.
But they retain basic life support functions, such as breathing and circulation.

A person in a coma may look healthy and appear as if they are sleeping, but they are unable to respond to people and things around them.

A patient in a coma may exhibit some movement such as eye opening or grimacing in response to the environment.

A long-term coma is often referred to as a persistent vegetative state.

This can last for years, depending on the medical circumstances and the cause.

In general, a coma is temporary, rarely lasting no more than two to four weeks.

After emerging from a coma, the prognosis is varied.

Many people can recover fully, some require lifelong physical and occupational therapy, while others may recover only basic functions.

  1. Switch off those machines and let the Gukurahundi biitch die mani, bathoo!! Why are you wasting electricity?

    • This Mboniso guy needs to grow up. He seems to be fighting everyone for reasons best known to himself. Learn to seperate issues and avoid using wrong platforms to try to get to put accross your point

    • mbonisi must be a son of a bitch. akarumurwa nechikomba chamai vake, i think chero kuvhurwa nzeve kwakaitwa nechikomba chamai vake chaiva musoja wegukurahunhi. shame.

    • @mbonisi u have a cold heart, imagine if it was ur mother would you appreciate such comment? u must grow up. Let it in the hands of God.

      • @Lucia
        Where was a her own soft heart when her brother Gukurahundi Mugabe was killing my Mthwakazi people in a cold hearted manner for not speaking Shona, whilst prtending to be after dissidents?

        • we all know the truth. not every Ndebele is genuine,most are really Shangani, Venda, Kalanga, shona, Karanga and the list is long. Gukurahundi is just an excuse for you. I am a true Nguni and not Ndebele as this is a group of many tribes. What are you.. growing up speaking English does not make you an English

    • Mbonisi, God is the giver of life, life is precious you can only live it once. You should not aid ending some1’s life. I am not a supporter of ZPF but I say to President keep hoping to talk to your sister one day. Loosing the one you love is painful.

      NO POLITICAL MATTER

    • Your choice of words is disgusting. If it so pleases you to hate Mugabe confine your hatred towards him and not his sister. What harm has this old woman done to you or the country, it is not her who you can point fingers at, but her brother Robert Mugabe.
      As for the life support machine Ms Mugabe is surviving on, it is doubtful that after two years of being being unconscious she has any hope of pulling through. But at the end of the day it is up to her family, its their personal choice to decide the next step.

    • Mbonisi’s utterances show signs of ignorance and you would not expect that from a reasonable and normal person. How can you wish for the death of somebody. Grow up mbonisi. only the devil can utter such kind of words.

  2. “If you hold her hand you can feel that she is strong, but she can’t talk. We remain hopeful and pray to God to heal.We can’t do anything because God has to judge.”

    YES INDEED, GOD WILL JUDGE YOU HARSHLY FOR PRETENDING TO BE FIGHTING DISSIDENTS, WHILE GUKURAHUNDING THOUSANDS OF INNOCENT MTHWAKAZI VILLAGERS FOR REFUSING TO SPEAK SHONA!!

    YES INDEED, GOD WILL JUDGE YOU HARSHLY FOR IMPOSING SHONA AT GUN POINT ON THE INNOCENT MTHWAKAZI – WE ARE NOT SHONA AND WE WILL NEVER EVER BE. WE STILL REFUSE UP TO THIS DAY!!!

    WE WILL NEVER ACCEPT IMPOSITIONS.

    • mbonisi ,where do you intend to setup borders for your MTHWAKAZI empire? Could it be at Shangani or somewhere else? PLEASE let me know nokuti ini handina kufunda sewe ini ndine musoro weDamba.Where did this name come from? Where is this land?Who is behind the scenes whom we dont know?

    • Mbonisi hapana ngoma inorira ichiti kwake kwake but inoti kwangu kwangu. If you go to years earlier before Gukurahundi the time of Mzilikazi the Ndebele people killed Shona people and took all their beautiful women to Matebeleland. Mzilikazi fled South Africa due to tribal war during Tshaka era. He came with nothing but came to Mashona people and grabed their livestock and women. They will kill all men at a homestead before taking off with beautiful women and cattle away. It was painful the same way Gukurahundi was. But it is only that people were not as civilised then as they were in the 80s. Past is past in can never be panel beaten to suit whatever you want.

      How many Shona people have you ever had talking about what Ndebeles did to our fore fathers? Its not that they do not care but they did let it go. You cant change it.

        • But you got it. Go back to your roots in Mzansi thats your home. Your great grand fathers came from there. Pack your bags and go period.

          • you are sniffing your own fart i”ve never come across any beautiful shona girl..there all ugly dark as the night, fist nose shiny black ugly legs annd most with pungent repellent smelly armpits

    • you are displaying too much emotions bro.for sure you were wronged,and many other people who were not ndebele’s were also wronged recently.so you shouldnt take this platform to express hatrage and disdain.we must be preaching unit and reconciliation for two wrongs dont make a right.leave judgement to the almighty.just take a chill pill bro!!!!!!

    • mbonisi get a life there is a lot of good to think about than dwell on an ill gotten past and being so worked up about it,you have personal issues maybe failure that makes you vent anger everywhere,only witches wish bad of the sick they are the ones who need most prayers God forgives any type of sin,red as scarlet.

  3. Mr editor I am totally against zanu pf but dont you agree mbonisi uses the wrong media to air his grievances.

    • Gone are the days of zanu media who had a tendancy to look the other way when the MaTebeles were being massacred.

  4. I second yu Shapiro this forum is not for hate speech and we dont wish people to face their deaths .how many times evryday do we need to be reminded of those atrocities seldom is adressing them to the wrong people ,Zimbabwe is a free country yu can go to Harare and demands answers from Robert Mugabe ,Kumbirai Kangai,Perence Shiri,Emerson MnangaGwa and Sydeny Sekeramai .or yu can write an open letter to Zanu pf and attention it to Politbiro and central committee i guess this is the only remedy to stop this issue on our forum.

    • @Thabani
      NewsDay on line is a public platform that is also available to Gukurahundi Mugabe, Sekeramayi, Mnangagwa, Shiri and Gukurahundi Nkala, so they dl read this – this should not bother you because it is non of your business.

      All this dilly dallying about the new constitution and seeking guarantees for the future is due to our postings here to voice our views – so NewsDay is doing wonders for us, after all the censorship from Zimpapers!!

      You either put up or shut up!!

      • toothless bulldog mbonisi if you have a real problem face the right person not throwing your missiles everywhere hoping one will get to the intended,cowardly way of solving issues.

  5. Mbonisi, I know you are angry and bitter because of what happened during the gukurahundi. But no body can reverse time and eraise what has already happened. Many peaple lost there loved ones during this demonic period in matebeleland. But God was there and was seeing everything. My advise to you brother Mbonisi is turn to GOD, report to him and love your enemies. God will help you and everyone else who was negatively affected. May the Lord bless you mukoma Mbonisi.

    • @Tutsile
      The imposition on our precious Mthwakazi people of Shona that was brought by the gun-totting Gukurahundis can certainly be reversed. Yes, lives cannot be brought back, but we want to clean up Mthwakazi of impositions.

      Let those who want to speak a particular language or follow a particular culture do so willingly not through impositions in state institutions, the police, army, broadcasting, Tswangirayi or Mugabe at rallies.

      WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION TO TEACH THESE SCOUNDRELS A BITTER LESSON!!

      • Mbonisi if you were forced to learn shona by a gun saka you can get this message ‘ makakwata,’ Pamaive madviti mairwisa vane zvombo kana kuti mairwisa vaifudza mombe dzavo vachizvirimira minda yavo, You raided peaceful shonas during that time, You mbonisi if you did not know you have karanga (shona) blood in you. Your greatgrandmother was karanga(shona) or even you greatgrandfather could have been a karanga niece. Shut up about Gukurahundi it was an equaliser. I hated Gukurahundi but the way you paint us shonas means we also have to look straight into your eyes and tell you off madzviti used to kill us in the pastures, in the fields so whats the diffence.

      • Mind you you are a minority so you cannot go far if you want politics get into it but if your party is tribalistic you wont go anywhere coz zim has 13million people

  6. @mbonisi..a bitter person is like a rat that has eaten rat poison then goes goes arnd saying the the person who put poison will die…may i educate yu a bit and say it is the rat that has poison in its stomach that will die…if you continue carying this bitterness you will surely die both spiritually and physically…lathi si affected ngendaba ye gukura hundi but look we have to move on….please move from the gukurahundi era even if no one has apologised to you(if yu lost your loved one like prof J mOyo)

  7. Mbonisi, you have so much hate, almost rabid hate, in you, mfanekhaya. It will eat you, if you are not careful. Try to manage it. I was also affected big time by gukurahundi. I lost cousins labomama abancane had to walk on foot from Tsholotsho to Byo. However, there is no point in continuing the pain with that hate. Let God judge them those that must be judged. The Mugabe woman needs your support as your fellow human being, regardless of whether you are pro- or anti-gukurahundi. Mayuyu

  8. I think this guy is a member of al queda the islamists, he wants to have a portion of Zimbabwe for his tribe only and no-one else, what a nuisance, if you want to be president just join the mad people and start campaigning. Sell your manifesto, your people’s programmes to the electorate like what Welsh is doing, like what Morgan is doing, do not try to bring war to the country please, we are now tired, we need a rest.

  9. A Shona Gukurahundi praying to God, which GOD is that? Are they not confusing our Lord with their evil Lucifer which they pray to everyday while drinking and soaking themselves in Ndebele blood?

  10. Guys don’t worry about Mbonisi. My guess is he was not yet even born during “this moment of madness”. Some of us who experienced it do not need constant reminders of this. So just ignore him uzathula yedwa! If you ignore a whining puppy it eventually gets tired & shuts up!

        • Your math is wrong Mlungisi. You forgot the puppies , they are also dogs. But anyway asikhangeleni phambili bafowethu not emuva ngoba singacina sikhubeka sitshiye abantwana belamba! Ubona njani?

    • My brother Mbonisi, please remember that you will miss heaven if you continue to leave in the comfort of your anger. Please turn to GOD and He will do the impossible in your life. Jesus also died for people like Bridget Mugabe, Robert Mugabe, Mbonisi, Tutsile and everyone else. So love one onother and lets not wish someone dead. Peace beggins with me, peace beggins with you and peace beggins with all of us.

      • Wena Tutsile, please direct your preachy messages to the Shona Gukurahundi Licifers in Zimbabwe – they will have to pay, come what may!!

        • Just wondering what this guy does for a living, seems to have so much time everyday to pass useless comments and replies everytime. Just cant you find better use for your time?

        • Mbonisi I hear you my dear brother, here is my message to al Gukurahundies: May anyone and everyone who participated in Gukurahundi, repent now while it is still day for the night is comming. God will forgive you if you are sincere. Read John 3 vs 16 and John 8 vs 34 to 36.

  11. Mafirakureva.

    do beutifull Shona women exist i dont think so which ones are you talking about (anaShuvai Mahofa). Stop lying there are no beutifull Shona women. Mzilikazi never captured any beautifull Shona women because they dont exist. If you dont believe me look at MUgabe Tswangirayi and Mutambara all ugly Shona goblins. Shonas are cursed with ugliness. Then look at handsome Ncube. People oz Zimbabwe vote for Ncube arent you tired of being ruled by ugly Goblins.
    KI KI KI KI KI

    • mafirakureva, I have a question for you. what kind of beauty are you talking about? are you talking about beauty that is inside or outside. which one would you prefer?

    • Reuben read your history. If they are ugly it is because you looted the beautiful once. Don’t bother us mheni you know where you came from go back. TYou are also colonisers like the whites you came almost at the same time go back to your roots.

  12. Mbonisi you are a disgrace to your family. You and Mugabe are not different you cant forgive and forget. We have since forgiven your fore fathers about what they did during Hondo yemaDzviti. Why cant you do the same. I bet if you are to become Zim president mashona unoapedza.

    • You have no business forgiving anyone as you have never been affected by anything that I have done in life and I personally have never done anything to you and I dont even know you.

      But as for Gukurahundi Mugabe I know him and I know what he has done to my people and I will never forgive and never will forget.

      A Shona Gukurahundi will remain that, a Shona Gukurahundi till heavens come down!!

      • tribalistic ideas are a source for division and war we only progress by letting bygones be bygones,God is the ultimate judge.

  13. Mbo u are noe even a genuine mthwakazi, uyinja yothuvi, uyenyanyisa, unonhuwa in Shona, 4 your own information i am more ndebele than you but guess what, uzohlala usidla lokho okwahlanyelwangu khokho uMzilikazi, that was a thief with no land, they did not even deed it eMzansi. uyazi ulikaka.

    • wena mdala Mthwakazi 4 life fools, o se ka ntlwayela ga mpe, wang ko tlwa? Ke tlo go shapa, ga matsogo a tswere matlakala mfanami – yini abaliphethe ngo munwe, yikho li kanje. OTHATHEKILE!!!!!!

  14. @ Mbonisi. Grow up. if yu hate Mugabe o yu pained bwt ths Gukurahundi thang, juss live wit it coz nthng wil change. we a united nation n we wrk 2gthr as shonas and ndebelez. plz visit a psycaetric 4 assistance.

  15. nhaiwe Mafirakureva, if u continue with ur uneducate utterrances your name will suggest your fate, does facial looks have anythng to do with leadership stylz, comprehending your message u must be semi- ndebele and by the way who cursed the shonas? the shona came first into Zimbabwe, then the ndebele, then lastly the white. we have managed to successfully evict the white and now the sequence is quite clear that the ndebele are to follow then isusu vana vevhu will live happily eva after saka ngwarira zvaunotaura. how can a sane Zimbabwean vote for an ego centric proffessor by the name of Welshman??????

  16. My utter, unmitigated hatred for the Shona Gukurahundis is immeasureable – thats a fact and I make no apolgies for that!!

  17. This Mbonisi guy is crazy. As others have already observed, this guy was not even born when the so-called Gukurahundi massacres occured. He just read about it from newpapers and other sources. He knows nothing. This idea of having Mtwakazi (whatever that means) is obviously stupid and we will not allow it. It is well known that the Ndebeles (a few of them reaaly) came from South Africa about two centuries ago just like the white people came from Europe. They conquered all the tribes around present day Matebeleland, Midlands, Masvingo in fact much of what is Zimbabwe today. Most people from Matebeleland who call themselves Moyo, Mpufu, Ncube, Sibanda, Nyathi, etc are not really the original ndebebeles. We know that a few Khumalos, Ndiwenis are the real Ndebeles. Most of these present day Ndebeles are originally Shonas, Kalangas, Tswanas, Nambias etc. So who is who? We are just Zimbabweans. Period! Even the whites, Indians etc are now Zimbabweans. Let us focus on improving the lives of our people not to waste time on debates that will not bring food to our tables.

    • you are brainwashed border gezi graduate…..Mpofu Nyathi and Ncube are very much Nguni .mugarbage really succeded in his quest to indoctrinate you lot.

  18. OK mbonisi, so tell us my brother: what exactly do you want done in order to set things right (your way) or what do you want the shonas to do to the ndebeles in order to have peace love and unity between the two tribes.

    • Shut up Tutsie, this is about Gukurahundi Mugabe not the Shonas – when will you ever understand?

      CANT YOU JUST GET IT INTO THAT THICK HEAD OF YOURS???

      • Ok brother Mbonisi, I did not mean to hurt you. You say I have a thick head, Thank you my brother for yoru kind words. May you be blessed. So my brother what do u want done to this Gukurahundi Mugabe in order to appease you and all those who were affected.

  19. Let the Shona Gukurahundi biitch die, stop wasting our electricity. I remain unshaken – come what may.

    Gukurahundis killed uMthwakazi in cold blood whilst pretending to be after dissidents – which they avoided because they were scared of them.

    I was a victim of their abuse. Buses where stopped left right and centre and we were told BURUKAYI, EVERYWHERE WE WENT!!

    There was no respect for our Gogos, Mkhulus,Uncles,culture or language. To the Gukurahundis – it was always TAWURA CHISHONA – what is Shona to a Mthwakazi?

    Shona was introduced to Mthwakazi through the barrel of the Gun, there is no forgiving for that – I remain unshaken.

    To hell, let the Shona Gukurahundi biitch die and excruciatingly painful deal!!!

    • this time muchanyatsoitaura shona iya coz tirikudzoka takakwana you know the ZNA belongs to the shonas……uchanyatsomunamatira kuti afe Bridget iyeye tapedza dzinza rako……..kudzungaira imi maifunga kuti mungarwise varidzi venyika imi murituvanhu twutatu hezvo munongotaura unofunga kuti vachamuka here kana Bridget akafa…..urimboko mufana

  20. Mbonisi,i am shona,but i wld like to offer free psychiatric help,coz you must be sick,it’s not your fault,you will only realise the mistake you are doing when you get out of your own comma,which i suppose you are in,the only difference is that you are able to write and read,unfortunately it’s senseless,pity on you shame

    • How ironic that you are offering this ‘help’ to Mbonisi only and none to your fellow Shonas who are spewing tribalistic sewage, for example Mutondowadya. Birds of a feather flock together, liyafana lonke

  21. Mbonisi you are very cruel infect you are a demon.For he who does not love does not know God…For God is love.you will die first before Bridget.you are ejaculating words,the devil’s spokesperson.you utterances are bitter.

    • I don’t care – I just know that I hate Shona Gukurahundis with a passion and I wouldn’t mind killing one in revenge at any given opportunity.

  22. @Mbonisi it seems that you’re still stuck in the Past,Come on Bra come out of the Wilderness and Witness for yourself Clever People have moved on with Life,Shonas and Ndebeles are Working together to bring Zimbabwe to life again after years of Economic Sabotage by the West..

  23. Mbonisi is simply making use of a free speech platform so applies to all of you guys.Say your hearts out thats why its public forum shout at each other as much as you like and debate is the winner of the day

  24. You can shout all you want, the fact remains there is a very big difference between the Shona Gukurahundis and the ordinary Shona.

    So if you prefer to continue confusing the two – that is your problem, but I will never flinch in my hatred for the Shona Gukurahundis!!

  25. Pretending you are after dissidents when in fact you are driving the 1979 Shona Gukurahundi ZANU PF Grand Plan agenda – you thought you were never be found out?

    Today we hear – “every Zimbabwean can speak Shona;”

    “Where do you come from if ypou don’t understand Shona”; and

    “Go back to South Africa where you all came from, you arrived here just shortly before whites arrived”
    !!

    • My sister who has lived in Harare for many years went for an interview, two weeks ago, but was turned down because her shona is not fluent, but right now if you go to Maphasaphasa Primary School in Nkayi, you will find several teachers who do not speak or even understand Ndebele, what the F>>K is that, shit happens.

  26. Pretending you are after dissidents when in fact you are driving the 1979 Shona Gukurahundi ZANU PF Grand Plan agenda – you thought you were never be found out?

    Today we hear – “every Zimbabwean can speak Shona;”

    “Where do you come from if ypou don’t understand Shona”; and

    “Go back to South Africa where you all came from, you arrived here just shortly before whites arrived”

    IF YOU DON’T BELIEVE, GOOGLE THE 1979 GRAND PLAN – THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT IT ALSO SAYS.

    SO TO HELL WITH THIS DISSIDENTS NONSENSE. GUKURAHUNDI WAS A TRIBAL AGENDA AND WE SHALL REVENGE, COME WHAT MAY – EVEN IN A 100 YEARS.

  27. you guys giving too much attention to this tribalistic vitriol, some extremests like mbonisi should be ignored with the contempt that they deserve.

  28. To all my fellow Zimbabweans, I would encourage you to ignore this guy called Mbonisi. He meets the classic definition of a troll which according to Wikipaedia is, ” someone who posts inflammatory, extraneous, or off-topic messages in an online community, such as a forum, chat room, or blog, with the primary intent of provoking readers into an emotional response or of otherwise disrupting normal on-topic discussion.” Look at how many of you are still discussing the article’s merits/demerits? Instead, the lost brother/sister has managed to hog the posts to be about his/her obsessions. The Bible says, “When arguing with fools, don’t answer their foolish arguments, or you will become as foolish as they are.”

  29. Now Now this guy is a loose canon with overfed tribal fodder now guys just ignore his comments from this minute onwards.the next time mbonisi must talk alone like a fool.lets ignore him collectivly from this minute onwards till mangwana kusasa.My Mom Is ndebele my father is shona whats this gukura nonsense??

  30. Somebody should break into that hospital at night and switch off those machines – let the Gukurahundess die!

  31. Mbonisi is a CIO operative or Jonathan Moyo tasked to judge sentiments of readers, and is having a field day at the expense of the really so called Mthwakazians. His mission is to foil the mission of the separatist by invoking ill feelings from the majority of Zimbabweans especially the non “Mthwakazis”

    • Mina I I hail from matobo district and am a descendent of Mzlikazi of the Khumalo clan.
      Mbonisi, mfana wami, what goes around comes around.

      For goodness sake, please withdraw your statement and apologise beacause this does not bring blessings to you. Two wrongs will not make a right. Remember the word Ubunthu.

      so long

        • I hear you Mlungisi mfowethu, but I insist that two wrongs will not make a right. Ukuxolisa is not foreign to our tribe.One day you will remember this advice that I gave to you in utmost good faith on this 24th day of January 2013 but wena uyafunga “over your dead body”. Wish well and bye for now.

  32. Guess you are right as he has all the time sitting and waffling on the net.I said lets ignore him from this minute onwards.Finish finito uphelile

    • I would like to openly inform Zimbabweans on this forum that the toublesome, problematic, adamant, arrogant, archaic, retrogressive and egocentric guy calling himself MBONISI has a real name and identity. His real name is proff WELSHMAN NCUBE. So don’t mind is utterances.

  33. Mbonisi uyangichaza, uyazi uNdux Malax wayesithi ” BATSHELE” tell them. Then there is an English saying”the guilty are always afraid”. Their sins are terrorising them.

  34. People, please GOOGLE the 1979 Grand Plan – you will see that what it says is exactly what we always hear most Shona Gukurahundis say either in private or in public platforms such as these..

    IF YOU DON’T AGREE, THEN PROVE ME WRONG!!!

  35. @mbonisi

    One thing that I like about you SOB is that you are a hard headed Matabili-The type you can boil at quintillion degrees fereign heights but never succede to serve for supper on the dinner table.If you had grown up enough to be a dissident leader during Gukurahundi (such as Tsholotsho’s “Tulane”, Matobo’s “Sitshela”,”Mdawini” & “Masikisela” or Gwanda’s “Brown”-(may Satan roast their souls in eternal sorrow for starting the largest human avalanche!) I tell you you could have won that civil war with a pitol and one hand tied behind the back. Please keep it up. You bring balance to this forum except sometimes I find your remarks lacking bantuism. The Bantu people do not rejoice over the ills befalling their enemies, they commiserate with them and leave the fighting for another day when the enemy is on his feet again. After all is it not an act of cowardice to fight an ailing man? Would you consider it a victory? There was a time I just couldn’t understand you, but now I think I can see through you ” The right to freedom of expression !” WOZA mfanami! But just a few points of correction:

    1: “let the Gukurahundi biitch die mani.Why are you wasting electricity?” Very impressed to see how far you have gone to shonarise yourself over time-I have always maintained everyone except Mzilikhazi originally carries Dzimbahwe DNA.Now see yourself speaking in Mutapa tongues . Next time please spell ‘mani’ as ‘mhani’ and recognise the heavy sound of ‘mh’ consistent with your dear mother Dzimbahwe dialect. It just occured to me you are so concered about saving electricity than certain lives. Last week JL Nkomo died and your hand wrote “…so far so good, one gukurahundist down…” If only you had ‘amandla obatakathi okubulaleni onke owelifunayo losandawana tokoloshi, you would finish them off all one by one. Just how unfair the gods turn out to be. But do not wish to bewitch anyone, however you hate them, plse confirm with Sekuru Shumba of Zengeza 2 who was blasted to smitherenes together with 4 adjoining houses in the most recent Sandawana Mafia botched deal in town. We all wish you life!Adn I think Bridget would also wish you many more years.
    2: “GOD WILL JUDGE YOU HARSHLY FOR IMPOSING SHONA AT GUN POINT ON THE INNOCENT MTHWAKAZI – WE ARE NOT SHONA AND WE WILL NEVER EVER BE. WE STILL REFUSE UP TO THIS DAY!!!” Now that’s not true. Because you would say the same of cecil John Rhodes-that he impossed English at gun point to Zimbabweans.Everyone knows people voluntarily learn a language for self gain-better communication, trade, commerce, socialisation and so on and all Bantu parents enrolled children in english schools so that they find a better life in the english world-maybe cross the pacific itself one day and meet the queen as a sign of civilization. Whoever ran away from school never made it in Rhodesia. How could anybody then force Shona on anyone? Probably people learned it voluntarily to make ends meet in the post independent Dzimbahwe whose capital and largest city is in the heartland of Shona speakers. How could you expect to set up businesses and trade in Harare if you do not speak the common language there? When you are in Rome, you do as the Romans do. Its common sense. Besides, far as the Hwange Meseum is concerned, Matabelaland north is Nambya country and that meseum has evidence the Nambiya migrated from Dzimbahwe-of the Rozvi empire-maps, artifacts, language evolutions e.t.c are all there for all and sundry to see for themselves.
    I have explained to you long before that the Kalanga are a by-product of Mzilikhazi’s adultery with the shona language after urinating on it with ‘b’ for ‘v’, ‘l’ for ‘r’, hl’ for ‘sh’ and ‘ph’ for ‘p’ and so on. It is very simple for a hardcore pure Shona linguist to converse with a Kalanga or Nambya linguist without need for an Interpreter. That means, the only intervening factor breaking this lingua bond-the ‘force major’ or ‘vis majure’ all along was one thing -Mzilikhazi kaKhumalo and his colonial verses. When it comes to language colonialism mfanami, the 5th brigade that you falsely accuse of gun-totting shona into Matabeleland is a novice and Mzilikhazi is a Districtl Education Officer in that profession. He palverised the linguistic identity of an entire generation of Rozvi captives into foreign submission until their children and great grandchildren (who undoubtedly includes Mbonisi kaMthwakazi) lost touch with mother Dzimbahwe. Is it not comic that such descendents of Khumalo captives front this Mthwakazi outcry bullshit oblivious of the wishes of their long departed captvie ancestors, some of whom obviously had their heads chopped off at Kobulawayo by Lobengula-the wish to return home to Dzimbahwe and show their children the graves of their foregone Dzimbahwe kings by their lineage? USA African American citizens Wesley Snipes, Denzel Washington, or Tupac would be fools the day they denigrate the Senegalese Prime Minister Ellen Johnson Salif for teaching her citizens the West African Housa language-for we all know Senegal is a free state for all freed slaves deported from America after the Barclay Brothers slave trade crumpled-and we all know American balck slaves where taken from West Africa and when their ancestors braved the Pacific in those Dow ships, they spoke not evn one English syllable. So did kalanga, Nambya and Venda ancestors-they did not know one day a barbaric cattle rustling Niendathal Homo Habilis Zulu renegade named Mzilikhazi ka Kumalo would cross the Limpopo and force them to relignuish certain words for foreign lingua. Who knew ‘mbeva’ would one day be called’amagundwana’ and it would be a shame to eat such a delicacy? Mister, you tell me !
    3: I however encourage you to attempt scribing more in shona, just like what some of us labour to scribe in ndebele though we never had the opportunity to learn the majestic language. It takes the steam off your hate filled medula o’blangata (I find the language very useful and heavy with intention when frightening someone to pay up their long due debts, shouting obscenities, or singing grieving songs and am sincerely looking for a genuine Ndebele (please no fakes) Pen Pal to increase my amunition for chasing up debts) Highflying words such as “Zakubulala kathesi”, Mina zakhubhangaza so, ‘lalela mthakathi”, “uyahlanya”, “Mgodoyi”, “inja” coupled with a frown or so makes me send well-meaning intentions to debt defaulters and I have never lost a cent on the job! Thanks to Mzilikhazi. Now, I do it voluntariry not at the point of an assegai, but from an economic sense.The sense that if you want them to pay up, better rope in the most menacing language. I tell you when I am following up my debts, Mzilikhazi himself would be green with envy were he to see me, for I feel more of a menacing Matabili assegai-totting impi than himself. Very awkward, this world! Don’t you think?

    • @shame

      Shame on you indeed.

      First, the word MANI is not Shona, just like Mpfana, and your Mdhara these are words you the Shona language (if there is such a thing, Zezuru, if stated correctly) has borrowed from Nguni languages. You can check this by visiting South Africa, you will find that is a commonly used word in Mzansi. As usual you know you always add your “Hs” to Shonalise these words;

      Second, you can be forgiven for being a pikinini, a born yesterday. The truth of the matter is that in the 1980s Gukurahundi era, Shona Gukurahundis spent most of their time in rural Mthwakazi harassing villagers for failing to speak Shona than at hunting down and killing dissidents. There are plenty of videos at YouTube and BBC footage that proves this convincingly. I was one such victim for your information.

      There was no Shona spoken in rural Mthwakazi and even today, many people struggle to speak the language. Shona was brought to Mthwakazi by the gun-totting Shona Gukurahundis – thats a fact.

      Shoan has no use in Mthwakazi, it is only useful in Shona provinces. You are also talking rubbish when you say you need Shona to do business and survive in Harare, and other Shona places. That is pure Gukurahundism and nothing else. You don’t need to know Shona because it is a unsophisticated backward language, just like many African languages and can not be used in business, sciences or government. If this Shona was necessary, the how do Nigerians survive and even beat you in business right in your Shona heartlands? Even Indians and Chinese are harassing you and taking over business right in front of you Shona noses without knowing and speaking a single word of Shona. So, stop exaggerating the significance of your Shona.

      I am a very successful person myself, both academically and businesswise, and I have never needed Shona in my life.

      Imposition of Shona on Mthwakazi is just an effort at apeasing your own egos – otherwise it has absolutely no value to anyone else other than yourselves!

      ENKOS!, NDIYAKUXELELA, NDIQEDILE – NDIYABULELA!!

      • @Mbonisi

        Are you saying there are no shona dialects in Mzanzi? The fact that you crossed the Limpopo and found a few rhyming shona words is no coincidence. Long, long back, there was the kingdom of Mapungubwe stretching as far as Gauteng Province, Maputo, Namibia, Eastern Angola, Botswana and South Zambia and unfortunately again, this kingdom was headquartered at Dzimbahwe-and unfortunately, as well the language spoken was….(please finish off by yourself). So literrally speaking, the coming in in history of Shaka Zulu, Zwangendaba, Soshangane or Mzilikhazi (how I sometimes envy the strength of his long distance fleeing feet, and his ability at ranching other people’s cattle and amassing the most beautiful women-forget the how part of it)-their advent merely scattered a civilised people. Tell you some. The very reason why the Limpoipo province of South Africa is under-developed is because the venda resident therein are regarded as Shona foreigners-and that Mbonisi, is true. these are great Mapungubwe citizens. Deep in the Mzanzi heartland, you will find them speaking Shona words within the Zulu Language, the Setswana ;language and much more, the Xhosa and SeSeotho. Unless you want to keep yourself in a permanent state of self-denial, it is very important to recognise that at one time, in the 14th century or there abouts, we were one people under one empire. Shaka, Mzilikhazi, Soshangane, and Cecil John Rhodes divided us. We do not cross geographical borders, the borders cross us. Now, the point is belaboured enough. One type of revelationary philosophy that I shall leave with you to consider is this.’Soshangane-co-cattle rustler of Shaka’s pens with Mzilikhazi-who headed north east wound up in Chiredzi and Chipinge in the mainly Chiqualaquala lands (You would have thought 1st ZANU leader Ndabaningi Sithole wasn’t a Zulu discendent isn’t it?). Does his descendents give folks the head-aches you people give? Whats wrong with you? If Mzilikhazi wanted to return to Mapungubwe, homeland to his forefathers and the citadel of their king (for that reason, is it not logical that the Dzimbahwe people should just reign in Zimbabwe until kingdom come?), the chick thing to do was to coil his tail and pay obeissence to Changamire Nyatsimba Mutota-not to rush through his empire like a hot knife cutting margarine blocks. That sin is unforgivable. No-one rebels against their king and gets away with it in this land -from Mapungubwe Empire to Zimbabwe.

  36. Dear readers and all Zimbabweans on this forum. I would like to use this opportunity to unmask the arrogant, adamant, stubborn , egocentric and tibalist calling himself MBONISI . His real identity is. Proff WELSHMAN NCUBE . Don’t mind him. He dreams a lot.

  37. @Shame. You seem to be having some good points but I think you need to do some few corrections:
    Ellen Johnson Searleaf is not the Prime Minister of Senegal but the President of Liberia. Liberia and not Senegal was established by slave returnees from America. Check your History otherwise Mbonisi is green with envy looking at the way you play with the Queen’s language.

    • @pablo
      Too late, there will never be a second one – what with the ANC government right at you door step – that will never happen Shona Gukurahundi.

      Shona Gukurahundis only survive by historical chance – such as the UN, AU and the world all focusing on ending apartheid then; and unarmed civilians.

      This time around try it – you will remember the forefathers you never saw or ever met as you take to the hills my friend!

  39. If this Shona was necessary for one’s survival, then how do Nigerians survive and even beat you Shonas in business right in your Shona heartlands?

    Even Indians and Chinese are harassing you and taking over businesses, right in front of your Shona noses without knowing and speaking a single word of Shona.

    So, stop exaggerating the significance of your Shona.

    Thanx for the correction, surely this Mbonisi SOB is one of my most difficult long distance education students. I try to teach him Racial Eugenics every day, for free, but he throws everything over the window such that sometimes I forget to verify certain facts out of frustration (I have also learned that whether you tell him the truth or not nothing gets through the toll-gate to his impevious Medula O’ Blangata. I have resolved next time I will hire a cordless drill to penetrate his thick iron skull by ginya.). But just looking at the way in which this young boy Mbonisi refuses to be schooled, you sometimes end up giving in to the philosophy that Lobengula himself rolled out this ill-fated programme of intellectual dunderheads who pride themselves in nothing more than cattle-rustling, prostitution, skull-bashing, neglecting and cheating wives, skull-duggery armed robbery, school drop-outing, and so forth and so on.

    @Mbonisi
    You are such a disappointment! After all this effort to explain all these true facts you still remain adamant? “Boy, that’s a hard-headed nigger we gat here” I wonder what type of business you run and how you have achieved its success as you say. However, judging from the way you deny truisim and hard facts, I do not encourage you to go about pontificating and masquareding as an intellectually advanced folk. ‘Reason’ itself denies you and Einstein has his back at you. You are an intellectual orphan. How do you fail to understand that Mthwakazi is a lost dream? Why do you deny the truth that Mzilikhazi crossed the Limpopo with stolen beaves, ransacked the Rozvi empire and carted off cattle and beautifull women after disembowelling their harpless husbands when all writen history is still in the archives and pretty much still says so? If at all no-one in rural Matabili spoke shona for a century, it was because the tyrant Mzilikhazi would chop off the head of anyone suspected of stimulating insurrection to Lucifer Mzee’s blood sucking vampire kingdom. But just for argument’s sake, which rural Matabililand are you refering to as ” noone was capable of speaking shona and they still struggle..” because there is no way the Nambiya and Kalanga could have fast-tracked the speaking of shona since Gukurahund ahead of anyone else? This just shows how confined to wet dreams your mind is. When you take musterbation with your grief to greater levels, surely one day we shall see you roaming the streets a soliloquing, finished, hopeless lonely Matabili mad-man. For all we care, remain what you want, hard Matabili or soft Zullu renegade. No-one cares! But one thing for certain, deep inside your heart (Kune moyo wankho) as the Ugandans would say, you envy Robert Gabriel Mugabe. You love him, you fear him, you revere him, you worship him and you wish him many more years! I know you do. The rendition of hate-speach on this forum says it all. It is typical of a broken-hearted, dejected man who goes across the village denigrating his ex-wife as a ‘barren bitch’ nomatter that they had several living physically verifiable kids together. You are crying for attention- silly!

    Sorry before I forget, there is this singer I just heard recently singing,” Makorokoto, Makorokoto, Gabriel, Gabriel, Zita Rengirozi, Mwari akupei mamwe makore” The spirit of Mzilikhazi tells me this roughly means “amhlope, amhlope, Gabriel, Gabriel, egama lo’mtunya. Malupakhaniswe louNkosi.Sitsela oinye emnyaka.

    Sad isn’t it? How those we wish to perish are also wished many more years by others. Now, Mbonisi mpintshi wami ngibetshele wena.Unkosi Umkhulumkulu walaleli umthandazo wakho wodwa?

  43. @Mbizo

    You are correct to observe as above but are you aware that the some of the people in Zambia, Mozambique and Malawi comprise of drifters from the North-North bound renegade outfit of Soshangane who had also stolen Shaka’s cattle and ran away only to be saved from Shaka’s wrath by Tsetse sleeping sickness that decimated Shaka’s head hunting impi’s?Check the achives of Bantu migration history. The Sithole’s,Dhlamini, Nyoni’s and the bulk of folks making up Manicaland South and Masvingo South east are Soshangane people or as you would say ‘Changani’ Shaka’s grand head hunting strategy was to wipe away Soshangane first then turn his head hunters towards Mzilikhazi. The very foolish strategy that saved Britain from Hitler who wanted to conquer Russia first, then turn to Britain. Otherwise, If Shaka had done the chick thing to do, that is start off with Mzilikhazi first, this Mbonisi fellow would not even have been born.

    A point of correction however, when you say most of the Shona’s are of Mozambican origin thats not correct. During the mtapa empire, there was no such thing as Mozambique (I hope you took your African colonisation history lessons seriously) Mutapa empire extended as far as Sofala to the Bay at Sena where the Portuguese were initially confined before they got greedy and expanded west. have you never head that our ancestors traded in beads with corper from Wedza Mtn and so on and each time they passed through the Mt Darwin, robbers (variant for pirates) would pounce on them and ask them to fall on woden spears (Masengere) rather than be butchered for their cloth or beads or ‘Mutaka’ wegoridhe. (where do you think the phrase “Zvibaye woga mukorekore” came from?. Anyway, like I said, As far as Beira,in the east and Sofala in the North East up to the Tanganyika people in Tanzania (Please confirn why eastern Zimbabwe is called “Manyika?-you will find the name ties to Tanzania’s Tanganyika region) The shona people were scateered all over this vast land until the Portuguese drew a line along the Eastern Highlands from Gairezi to Limpopo and called it Mozambique border line. There is no such thing in the Mutapa empire. The manica people of Mozambique are Shona-their customs same as the Karanga remnant at Masvingo Ruins.Oh, before I forget, when you go to Zambia’s Kanyemba regions, you will witness what I am explaining.South Eastern Zambia is Shona or pseudo-shona. The Bantu people have never retained one common identity due to the versatility of their inerests. They move from one place to the other, raunning away from crimes or in search of greener pastures-and mother Africa has been very kind to them.It has never locked its doors to migration. You can go whereever you like and do whatever you want with your identity. No-one gives a damn unless you are a convict on the run. Your history is never forgoten-especially where you came from, why and when.

    • We tend to magnify the difference between ethnic groupd in Central & Southern Africa; just look at how close our languages and traditions are. People we are all related in some way. I have both Nguni & Shona ancestry so I love both sides.

  44. @Mbonisi. You must know the history before gukurahundi. The ndebeles were raiding and killing shona speeking people. Were it not for the white people who saved them, they were going to perish. The shonas know this part of history but do not just say it for the sake of reconciliation. Remember the ndebeles invaded zimbabwe from SA. Mbonisi must have crossed the crocodile infested limpopo river to goli before completing grade 7. Little knowledge is very dangerous.

  45. Wena pasi-kazi uzofa nini? During the height of Gukurahundi, you were feasting on Ndebele flesh and gulping Ndebele blood, wawuthi kophetha ngani. Everything comes to an end. I bet your devil brother is keeping you on life support whilst looking for ways to launch Gukurawondo 2, the source of your food supply. Sobohla MaNyosi

  46. Where is this fool by the name Mbonisi? You were luck to survive Gurahundi. I am planning another one that will wipe out all Ndebeles including your Welshman. Watch this space.

      • Ndebeles should not act like Mugabe ‘s sister is the first to be on comma, and derive happiness from it , celebrating that the condition is avenging on their behalf. No bantu, this ia condition that affected many ndebeles too, so attaching it to Gukurahundi shows ukuthi ingqondo zilutshwana, thats why lingabantu abasaleleyo, yini eliphansi, you should be called opasi abakhulu.Shonas are doing better by far lets face it madoda.

  47. People should not say this controversial fellow should shut up and forget. This is for the simple reason that the effects are still felt even up to today. Shonas are hypocrites to some extent because the want to silence the ndebele and accuse them to be people who do not forgive. Why! They themselves are monopolising all prominent positions in the state. The is no equality between the two because a shona always gets first preference over a ndebele person. So why should they be forgived for the genocide they performe in the ndebele regions.

  48. Kufungawo kwangu kuti kuona chitunha parufu hakusi kwemunhu wese; kune vane hana dzinovhunduka nyore zviri nani kusasvika pane chitunha chacho.

  49. @ Mbonisis -what does Bridgetter Mugabe have to do with gukurahundi. Could she have stopped it if she wanted to ? NO, so why wena mbonisi settling your score on a wrong person altogether, leaving abafowenu oKhaya Moyo, Obert Mpofu, Jonathan Moyo, and all others who by choice decided to join the cruel ZANU system. Hard headed as you, do you think your sister could be blamed for the careless talk you are displaying and worse still we know she cant stop you. So start thinking like a mature right minded man and stop embarrassing Ndebeles and displaying them as shallow minded pple.

      mfowethu, let me tell you. I have no obligation whatsoever to act, behave or say things in line with your expectations. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, neither are you here to live up to mine.

      Gukurahundis, in my book are failures. It is Gukurahundism that has dominated your mind that has made you develop an inferiority complex to the extent that you now believe much of their propaganda and lies about uMthwakazi – that is your problem, your have a dire need for psychological reconditioning.

      Where I come from and my own family background we are a highly successfull people – virtually usendo lonke, if you didn’t know. I don’t need Gukurahundi approval or praises for that. This is why I speak wih self confidence, and single-minded determination – I really don’t give a damn about what you think of me – why should I bother myself with people who always seeek other people’s approval so as to feel good about themselves. I don’t need that, worse still if that has to be Gukurahundi approval.

      I have no sympathy whatseover with the predicament of Gukurahundess Bridgett, if fact I wish her dead, right now. And I say that with no guilt conscience whatsoever.

      Mthwakazi Gukurahundis as you mentioned them, I have attacked them plenty of times with equal vernom. But this time around, I am dealing with the Shona Gukurahundis who imposed Shona in Mthwakazi through the barrel of the gun, pretending to be after dissidents, whom they created after all as a way of eliminating strong opposition from Dr Joshua Nkomo’s PF ZAPU..

    • As long as you see yourself as a self-appointed spokeman of Gukurahundi Mugabe and his ZANU PF, my contribution here will certainly be hate speech to you.

  52. @Mbonisi, feel free to say how you feel and what you want. That is what democracy is all about. If we tell someone to shut because he said something you dont like, then this whole GPA is of no use to any zimbo. We should learn to tolerate people’s views on anything. If he does not like Mugabe, it’s his choice and he has a right to express that. Why do we feel so awed by the US society where they can criticize Obama in public, media, internet and yet here we want to do the opposite. Gukurahundi was terrible. Even if it was a war on rebels, civilians should not have been part of it but they did.

    Mbonisi say your piece till your heart is content. But remember, practice what you preach. If you believe in prosecution of the individuals associated with this, then do so by the legal means available to you. For expressing here what it is you desire without any form of real legal submissions will render your statements as insignificant.

    As they say, where there is shouting, there is no true knowledge…
