URGENT OPEN LETTER TO PRESIDENT MORGAN TSVANGIRAI!!!
ATTENTION: MR NELSON CHAMISA, MINISTER FOR INFORMATION!!
My brother Nelson Chamisa, please kindly forward this letter and my greetings and felicitations to the true President of the Republic of Zimbabwe, Mr Morgan Richard Tsvangirai!
I write you, Your Excellency, this letter in a grave moment of grief as we mourn our dear departed mother, Amai Susan Tsvangirai. We have held various Services here in Johannesburg and many of these Memorial Services have been covered by various Media houses.
On the same day that you had that evil, fatal accident, I had been invited by the SABC a few days before to be on their SABCINTERNATIONAL Programme "African Views" and the subject of discussion was "Is Forgiveness possible in Zimbabwe???" The Programme was going to be aired "live" on the same day that the attempt on your life was executed!
I was going to say on that Programme that for forgiveness to work, there must be a realization by the wrongful party that there are wrongs that they have done in the first place.
I was also going to say that the wrongful party was expected to offer their sincere request for forgiveness to make the wronged party feel and receive the air of contrition so as to be make an informed choice whether to give that forgiveness or not.
I had consulted as widely as I could so that my contributions would not be out of step with the general feelings of the ordinary Zimbabweans. Mr Nelson Chamisa is personally in my mailing lists and he can testify to that regular wide consultation on my part.
BUT ALAS!!!...... while I was waiting for the vehicle from the SABC to arrive somewhere in Johannesburg to pick me up, I received a call that our dear President, who for reasons best known by SADC, is now the Prime Minister, had just been involved in a car accident and the True First Lady had lost her life on the spot and the President was fighting for his life in a Harare hospital.
Then I said to myself….. "What now?" I immediately thought of the Gallant General Josiah Magama Tongogara, Cde Sidney Malunga, Cde Witness Rukarwa, Cde Chris Ushewokunze, Cde Border Gezi, Mr Peter Pamire, Cde Zororo Duri, Cde William Ndangana, Cde Moven Mahachi to mention but a few. The rest can be got at my "IS ROBERT MUGABE THE MASTER-ASSASSIN?" (http://dearmrrobertmugabe.blogspot.com/2006/11/is-robert-mugabe-master-assassin.html )
I also humbly invite you, Your Excellency, to read my "APPEAL TO ALL WRITERS AND JOURNALISTS!" (http://radicalzim.blogspot.com/2007/08/appeal-to-all-journalists-and-writers.html )
As I walked into the Studios for my make-up since I was a Panellist, I wondered what line to take?
I convinced myself what line Cde Josiah Tongogara would have wanted me to take. The line Robert Mugabe's own "drowned brother" Albert Mugabe would have wanted me to take. The line the surviving victim, Cde Patrick Kombayi would have wanted me to take. The line Robert Mugabe's missing Secretary Rashiwe Guzha would have wanted me to take. The line the "poisoned" Cde Maurice Nyagumbo would have wanted me to take! The line Dr Joshua Nkomo's widow our dear Mama MaFuyane (also poisoned) would have wanted me to take! The line the similarly poisoned General Lookout Masuku would have wanted me to take!
What I said and the line I took can be got from the Archives of the SABC!
At that time I didn't know the truck belonged to the murderous Saviours Kasukuwere. Neither did I know then that Kasukuwere had rushed to you, our dear President with a syringe in his hand….. most probably to administer the much-needed First Aid assistance which you desperately required as you lay helplessly on the rough ground! Neither did I know then that the driver that was driving that assassin truck was being driven by a "new" driver and not the "regular" one.
I also had not known then about the true reason why you had to absent yourself from that stupid Birthday bash of our most evil Oppressor which had been held a couple of days before this tragic, dark day!
With hindsight, I'm very satisfied that the line I took was correct one! Robert Mugabe is indeed the Master-Assassin! Well if he wasn't in your case, at least I'm convinced the leopards he reared are grown up and can do the job now without his trillion-dollar signature!
NOW TO MY APPEAL TO YOU, YOUR EXCELLENCY, SIR!!!
Because of something that has happened to me these past few days, I have decided to share some thoughts with you, Your Excellency!
What happened to me of late is.....my loved one now physically leaves me to answer her phone when it rings. She never used to do that in all our 8 years together. She now deletes all calls from the Call Register and deletes all sms's from her cellphone before she returns to me.
She is in normally in Zimbabwe but she had visited me this past week-end and I had last seen her in June, 2008. I admit I've made her suffer by my "stupid activism" which is making her and the children go hungry.
In December, 2008, she celebrated Christmas cleaning up the mess of broken glass etc after the petrol bomb which was thrown into the house they live….. (I say "they" because I live a thousand kilometers away in Gauteng, South Africa myself!)
I'm not complaining about anything here! I'm only highlighting the reason why she could have been tempted to agree to carry another man's baby in her womb in my absence!
Perhaps I should not blame her! I cannot go back to Zimbabwe unless clear guarantees are given for the security of not only myself but of thousands of activists who have bravely stood against the evil, hyper-demonic Regime of Robert Mugabe.
Your Excellency the situation in Zimbabwe can never be normalized without all of your foot-soldiers back home safely!
The very people who you expect to rescue Zimbabwe read our blogs and even ask for our opinions! FOOD FOR THOUGHT!!! Have you forgotten that we were doing demos at nearly every Embassy in Pretoria..... and were recently even fired upon by the SAPS at the Union Buildings??(http://zimfinalpush7.blogspot.com/2009/01/pictures-of-rev-mufaro-hoves-rubber.html)
Please "Google -Search" REVOLUTIONARY YOUTH MOVEMENT OF ZIMBABWE and see what you will get!
So you said at a well-attended rally in Gweru that Robert Mugabe is not the evil person that we thought he was!(Oh my good Lord!!!) I think I'd better just drink poison myself!
Incidentally I'm a South African Citizen by Birth not like Mutumwa Mawere who rushed to arrange his Citizenship with the then Minister of Home Affairs to escape his legitimate prosecution for externalizing the resources of Zimbabwe!..... and to be first in line to benefit from the Black Empowerment Exercise (BEE) which is being implemented here in South Africa. (This is a subject on its own for which I'm preparing a full submission!)
The significance of my always mentioning my dual Citizenship is that I was "completely stupid and thoroughly misplaced" in continuing to involve myself in treacherous Zim politics yet arrangements are being made to "normalize" the situation back home…… (for which I have lost a lot…… including the woman I loved…) yet I cannot go there myself to join in the Appeal for that normalization!
I should have stayed in South Africa quietly and forgotten all about the slimy, slippery Zim Politics!
Your Excellency, its not only me who is crying!
Our women are being "slept" each night at the very Central Methodist Church in Johannesburg and many, not being raped, but just for R10 to get a plate of sadza and stew!
Our women are raped as they cross the river Limpopo by those notorious "Maguma-gumas."
Our women are being raped at Marabastad Home Affairs night after night as they await a turn to go into the Offices to apply for the "asylum papers."
I could go on and on and on and on and on …………………. And on and on!
If I commit suicide, at least I have left my blogs which will include this very Open Letter!
I, however, may not commit suicide because I know there is a God in Heaven who will not receive me if I did something like that ……… I wonder what to do!
I'm sure this Open Letter to you, Your Excellency, will be circulated and debated upon on my websites and numerous others and I humbly ask you to follow all the debates as you rest and recuperate in this strange land of Thabo Mvuyelwa Mbeki and others! Men kiss other men in public here but that's another subject which I will write about when I finally return to Zim! (My wife told me that day will never come for reasons which are now clear to me!)
God bless you, Your Excellency, as you swim in these precipitous, crocodile-infested Zim waters!
I pray that I will carry the Zim flag one day in the streets of Harare!
I remain in pain,
Rev Mufaro Stig Hove.
