Punish Zanu PF for Gukurahundi, voters told

MDC Alliance spokesperson Welshman Ncube has called on voters in Matabeleland to avoid voting Zanu PF because of its tainted history and refusal to apologise for the Gukurahundi massacres.

Addressing a campaign rally at Mzola in Lupane on Saturday, Ncube said the villagers should cringe each time President Emmerson Mnangagwa and Agriculture minister Perrance Shiri’s names were mentioned as they invoked memories of the Gukurahundi massacres.

“Mnangagwa and Shiri, who called himself Black Jesus, are well known here in Lupane for killing people. Black Jesus would stop all buses at Lupane centre, with pistol in hand, saying the lives of the people are in his hands.”

“Mnangagwa was the enforcer of the killings during Gukurahundi. Do you want a leader with blood in his hands? I have repeatedly said that military rule is a vicious cycle. Those soldiers in the barracks are now having thoughts that they can grab power through the gun, in the manner Mnangagwa did last year. But we have that opportunity to bring back power to the people on 30 July,” he said.

The Catholic Commission for Peace and Justice claims that over 20 000 people, most of them believed to be late Jushua Nkomo’s Zapu supporters, were killed during the Gukurahundi genocide in the 1980s.

Mnangagwa has repeatedly refused to apologise for Gukurahundi, although he admits that the killings occurred.

Ncube said the Zanu PF government has no idea of ending the cash crisis with Finance deputy minister Terence Mukupe repeatedly saying they have no solution except bringing back the Zimbabwe dollar.

“Do you want to continue in this crisis for the next five years? Vote for MDC Alliance as we have tangible solutions,” he said.

Ncube took time to explain the MDC Alliance ballot symbol differentiating it from Thokozani Khupe’s MDC-T faction.

  1. Ohh not again this Gukurahundi thing being brought up by this tribalist Welshman , sorry that strategy will not work people will vote for a party of their choice not influenced by anyone.

    1. it wont end until those responsible confess. such things just don’t die. we are quietly walking but we are hurting inside my friend. those who did the evil are living large at our expense. we will talk about until they talk to us.

    2. When will you stop talking about tribal wars, that are nearly 200 years old? With Gukurahundi, at least the perpetrators are alive – so we are justified. What about you and your tribal wars – please give us the names of those who participated in who are still alive today?

  2. Ncube if you do not have words to say at a rally its better to keep quite than trying to decide people on tribal lines. Perrence Shiri has never been called Black Jesus, Black Jesus was Cde Zimuto who is now late. You are are a useless Professor like your other Professor in exile. We want people who preaches peace and development.

    1. Are you scared you will be found out you participated in Gukurahundi? If not, why are you bothered? This should bother Mnangagwa, Mugabe, Shiri, Sekeramayi, Chiwenga – not you? Why are you defending something that has nothing to do with you?

  3. Prof. Ncube tell us what you yourself will do for us. Soiling another’s name is not marketing yourself or your party at all.

  4. maKhumalo Hlengiwe

    Prof Ncube has a point. We will not vote for people with blood on their hands.

    This Tribal card has to end now y z it e opposition keep on resurfacing his issue yes its campaign season but we are first Zimbabweans before we identify ourselves to any otha political party….. stop playin this card please

    1. Its tribal now because they are raising the issue but it was not when they were being killed. Its unfair to expect them to be quite when some of them are still nursing the wounds and unfortunately, it is the perpetrators who now want them to be silent. We cant pretend it never happened.

    2. when these killings were carried out didn’t you know that we are all Zimbabweans? it shows how foolish and stupid you are. Don’t expose your ignorance to us

  6. Everytime kunongonzi Gukurahundi isu hatina kumbobvira tataura kuti madzitateguru edu wer raided ….. kuuya kwaMzilikazi kwakaita vahinji vafe is tt wat u want us say at our rallies?

  8. kid marongorongo

    how many people were you addressing Ncube what have you ever did to them that warrants you a vote. You are too tribal but the mistake you are making is that you are talking to civilised people who are fed up with that ancient political gimmick, the people of matebeleland want development and not what you are still dwelling on poor soul. you have nothing to offer to them now you want them to get help in form of compensation, what of those who were not affected dont they deserve development because they were not victims. think like a leader you dont even know what you want wakatiza muMDC yatsvangirai uchifunga kuti unodiwa nevanhu vekubyo they showed you their true colors and you tried to save face by calling mutambara to lead you now you are back again kkkkkk. you are not man enough.just vote for ED

  9. Does bein an opposition leader mean u hv tu oppose development

  10. Ncube if you do not have words to say at a rally its better to keep quite than trying to decide people on tribal lines. Perrence Shiri has never been called Black Jesus, Black Jesus was Cde Zimuto who is now late. We want people who preaches peace and development like ED

  11. OOOOhhhhhh not again this Gukurahundi thing being brought up by this tribalist Welshman, sorry that strategy will not work, people will vote for a party of their choice not influenced by anyone. We want people who preaches peace and development like ED

  12. People that have lost vision spend most of their time in the past.

  13. People that have lost vision spend most of their time talking about the past…

  14. viruss vigoroso

    is is only those who do not wish to see us progress that will utter such statements… ed pfeeeee

  15. viruss vigoroso

    for the past 6 months zimbabwe has witnessed people serving leadership under ED. Now this fool wants to take us back to the MUGABE era. zim wont tolerate such rubbish

  16. this is utter nonsense, i feel so angered by such people who want to take us back

  17. its really funny how this same guy was holding a poster written save us ed during the November people’s march

  18. if you think this will pull us, forget… ED is winning the election come what may

  19. ZANU PF for life

  20. What Ncube has not told the people is that ZAPU dissident sought to topple RG who had been voted into power legitimately beating Nkomo, Muzo and all. In fact, ZAPU created the monster that we saw in RG for the rest of his reign. Gukurahundi was a civil war so NO APOLOGY. Has ZAPU ever apologised for the atrocities they committed against innocent people?

  21. Farai Johnson Nhire

    Welsman may also need to substantiate his claim that Ed was a gukurahundi enforcer. Can he give detailed evidence how Ed enforced gukurahundi. Do not tell me that Ed Through the ministry of state security uncovered a very huge arms catch of Zapu preparing for an armed rebelion against a legitimate government because that were his lawful occupational duties.

  22. Madagara Kasulumane

    We dont want side shows. People with blood on their hands. True or not true. Fact or not fact. Is he lying?

  23. Farai Johnson Nhire

    Ncube is definitely lying. Uncovering an arms catch is not enforcing gukurahundi. Hellping to track down serial killers like Gwesela Richard, Thambo lenyoka, Guy Gusvu and the like is not gukurahundi. If the honourable professor truly believes that carrying out those lawful duties is gukurahundi, then i wonder how he managed to go through his thesis. If someone decided to turn their guns on innocent unarmed cillivians, I do not see how they needed the services of state security ministry to be able to locate their innocent targets.

  24. Sizwe Ka Nare

    Idont think people who carried out these atrocities knew that they were killing people and they still believe that Ndebeles are not people

  25. Ncube is a confused professor, what do you offer. After all Chamisa is a tribalist given what he did to Khupe during Morgan burial. If people in Matebeland are wise they should vote for Khupe because of what the vanguard did and said to Khupe during Save burial.

  26. Tman zimbabwe

    I hope you have witnessed how khupe was treated by chamisa vanguard since the death of tsvangirai up to now

  27. Why punish our party for dissodents and their collaborators?
