The party said the wards visited are ward 18 at Somnemne, ward 3 Mlomwe, ward 1 Tjangwa, ward 5 Matjinge- Gambu, Marula-Figtree, ward 21 Ndiweni- Bhagani, Thekwane and Plumtree wards 1-6. The people welcomed the party's leadership with great enthusiasm and promised to vote MRP in 2018.
"The leadership left Bulawayo on Monday the 14th of August at 6am and we had our supper at 11 pm at Ntoli due to our demanding schedule from our Mthwakazi citizens. In its tour, the leadership noted that the Matabeleland problems are the same all over. The problem being the Shona dominance," said the party.
"We were very much surprised on our arrival at Tjankwa to hear that four shonas are in charge of the irrigation scheme including the one who operates the pump engine. We then wondered if the people of Bukalanga can't run their own affairs ending up having someone from Muzaravani only to operate a pump engine. Mthwakazi republic Party condemns such marginalization of our People and we will fight for the liberation of our people up until freedom comes."
MRP said residents in Plumtree raised the same problem that the three border post found in Bulilimamangwe are not benefiting them in anyway.
"They only employed people from Mashonaland at the expense of the suffering People of Bukalanga. The money from the Borders is now being banked in Harare thereby leaving people of Bukalanga with no hard cash. Some Residents in Plumtree complained that Greens supermarket and Plumtree bakery are taking the same route of sidelining the People of Bukalanga who at the end are left with no option and go to south Africa and Botswana to seek for greener pastures," said MRP.
"The Bukalanga community made it clear to us that they have not forgotten the insults from President Mugabe that they are notorious and uneducated. Surprisingly Mugabe children are the ones who are notorious in South Africa. The President also thanked the Plumtree community for coming best in Mthwakazi in terms of good looking homesteads which the locals built through their hardworking in South Africa mainly, and in Botswana contrary to the insinuations by Robert Mugabe that our people are lazy and fugitives."
The party said Plumtree homesteads are very beautiful that one can mistake them for leafy suburbs in Bulawayo.
"Some of the homesteads surpasses houses in Selbourne park and other leafy suburbs in Bulawayo. They are Durawalled homesteads, including schools and clinics which were built by the locals. MRP says keep it up to the people of Plumtree, you are a cut above the rest," MRP said.
