THE MASS GRAVES OF RHODESIA


THE HIDDEN SECRETS OF RHODESIAN WHITES

The bodies of the victims of white Rhodesian forces of the Chimurenga War are still being discovered in mass graves. Hundreds of bodies have recently been discovered in Penhalonga, near Mutare, around former white commercial area.

There are still some white commercial farmers who participated in the war who are still in the area. These and other farmers who are still in the country must be held accountable, not only for the deaths of the victims but for concealment of the mass graves on their farms.

The above, murdering a person, not reporting deaths and concealment of bodies are criminal offences. The State must simply look up who the previous owner of these properties are at the Deeds Office and lay criminal charges against the former commercial farm.

The VICTIMS

The victims in the mass graves includes unarmed women, children and armed liberation combatants. The victims have not been documented and are being identified using traditional spirit mediums.
The government should at least document the events and location of exhumation sites.

 These sites of mass graves must be recorded for the purpose of identifying the killers and the victim. Identifications will also assist if compensations of the victims should arise.

COMPENSATION
The family of these victims I think should be compensated. I propose a Special Parliamentary Committee must be set up to look into ways of funding of the exhumation of mass graves and identifying the victims using DNA technology.
The funds must be sourced or set off against the compensation claims of the white commercial farmers on improvements to their farms.

SETTING OFF OR KURIPA NGOZI

It is true that every white commercial farmer around these mass graves must have known of their presence and their contents and they had a moral responsibility to report and acknowledge them. The failure to report these graves is not only criminal but a total rejection of Robert Mugabe call of National Reconciliation of 1980.

These Rhodesian criminals must pay for their collective sin by compensating the families of their victim. Our culture and tradition calls it “kuripa Ngozi”. Let those be tormented soul be compensated.

WHAT CAN WE DO?

The State and media are not doing enough to highlight the Rhodesian atrocities and excesses. Let us talk about it. It is the State’s duty to take care of its citizen ,dead or alive. It is the media duty to report the crimes of yesteryear as they are unearthed in those mass graves.

Bond Notes and Cashless Tips

GO MOBILE You need a debit card to survive in these times. There are cards that you can get for free. Ecocash, Telecash and Textacash are free and you only need a photocopy of your national identity card. These cards are issued immediately .

BOND NOTES AND YOUR BANK ACCOUNT. The money in your account remains in USA dollars. The money is in the banking system it  retain its value.

Of Transfers and Bond Notes

ZW MOBILE OR TELEPHONE BANKING:
I had to write another post to explain and assist on how some of us are surviving in these very trying times. My previous post on bond notes tips got over 5000 shares on Facebook , Twitter and Google. Thanks for that. I got inspired to expand on this by Elias Saidi a friend on Facebook.I give part if not all credit to him on this post.
Here I am going to explain how to transfer money without paying heavy bank charges or EcoCash charges.We have an option to transfer money cheaper than what  the mobile platforms are charging.
RTGS VERSUS ZIPIT Even after the recent downward review of the bank charges, the truth is that RTGSs (and people looking to access their cash have to make a lot of them) at $3 a transaction, are still quite expensive to do. And of course EcoCash still charges the sender up to $7 for a $100 transfer to an unregistered number and a recipient $3 to cash it out – $10 transaction fees in total . You can visit Econet website for more infor…

The Queen Bee And the lost Cause

Just in case you missed the events of the month. Joice Mujuru of the Zimbabwe People First was fired from ZPF while across town she was busy announcing the expulsion of her former comrades in arm, Mutasa, Gumbo, and Mutezo.

This was the most baffling event of the year. Do we have two ZPF? Just a quick heads-up; A party closing down or splitting in less than a year from formation? No, this party is splitting before its formation since Joice Mujuru and crew are all interim committee members of ZPF. Who has the authority to fire anyone from a party that has not been formed?

Chatham House Visit
When Joice Mujuru visited the outpost of white supremacists,  Chatham House in London and promised to reverse  Robert Mugabe's land reforms, she did not only ruffle the ordinary people of Zimbabwe feathers but her own comrades in arms too. It is a fact that ZPF is riding on the war veterans disaffection with ZANU Pf upstarts, Joice Mujuru Chatham visit and promise to the white supremacists was t…
