Ndebele Nationalists Launch Mthwakazi Liberation Front in Zimbabwe

Mthwakazi Liberation Front Chairman Crispen Nyoni said his party’s aim is to bring about an independent Ndebele state


Brenda Moyo

Zimbabwe has yet another political party following the launch this week of the Bulawayo-based Mthwakazi Liberation Front led by Fidelis Ncube, former commander of the Zimbabwe Peoples Revolutionary Army or ZIPRA, in the 1970s liberation war.

The party was launched Tuesday in Stanley Square in Bulawayo's Makokoba suburb.

Another prominent figure in the party is Max Mnkandla, leader of the Zimbabwe Liberators Platform Peace Initiative, a veterans association.

Mthwakazi Liberation Front Chairman Crispen Nyoni told VOA Studio 7 reporter Brenda Moyo that his party’s aim is to bring about an independent Ndebele state.

While I support any affort to reduce ZANU-PF influence what the country REALLY needs is progressive leadership... something it has lacked for 30 years.. The country's ills can only be solved by the People - of all races - working together to develop a proper Constitution that takes power away from political parties and gives it to the People.

While we have political parties, the interest of the party and it's leaders will ALWAYS be prioritised before those of the citizens of the country.
