Irked by the Ntabazinduna issue and the call to impose sanctions on the corrupt Zanu PF government officials made by chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni the state media have upped a gear in their attempts to soil Chief Ndiweni’s name and character.

The articulate Chief Ndiweni has however, clarified issues pertaining the so-called call for sanctions.

The chief made it clear that he is calling on sanctions on those who are corruptly parcelling out land particularly the sacred places such as Ntabazinduna Mountains where he said was a historic mountain with depth and culture ingrained within it. The chief went on to say it was at Ntabazinduna that the Ndebele nation found itself, it is there there that Mzilikazi ka Matshobane resurrected the Ndebele nation.

Speaking about the passion behind protecting this historic site Chief Ndiweni said the contention and consternation he has with the current Zanu PF government emanates from the desire to parcel this sacred mountain which belong to the Ndebele community to some unknown individuals.

Chief Ndiweni clarifies issue on call for sanctions

Zanu PF youth from Matebeleland have been harassing the chief since he took up the fight to protect this sacred mountain.

Just recently the Zanu-PF Youth League in Matabeleland North appealed to the Minister of Local Government, Public Works and National Housing, July Moyo, to dethrone Chief Nhlanhlayamangwe Ndiweni of Ntabazinduna.

In a statement, the Youth League’s provincial chairman, Tamuka Nyoni, urged Chief Ndiweni to behave like a chief for him to be accorded the respect associated with the position.

It is however, important to point out that the chief has called for sanctions against the corrupt officials pushing for and willing to parcel out Ntabazinduna mountain and there is a world of difference between calling on sanctions against Zimbabwe and calling on sanctions against the corrupt Zanu PF regime. Zimbabwe and Zanu-PF are not one and the same thing.
