As usual, I was abused and derogatorised as a tribalist.
I wondered why people think I am being tribal against a heritage which I belong to.
My research of the meaning of the word Karanga in Swahili revealed " coward" and "ground nut".
l had researched out of curiosity of why the Karanga are 60% of Zimbabwean population but have failed to excersise influential politics to unite all Zimbabweans.
My curiosity arose from the fact that the Karanga are situated in the Midlands of Zimbabwe. They have strong family relatives both in the East and West of the country making them highly potential people to unite and cement the country and remove all retrogressive tribal traits bedelving our country.
I want those who urgued with my article of "Karanga Coward" in 2013, to revisit that article pasted below, and tell me today, if I was wrong or right.
At every rally, our President and his family describe us as a problem in Zimbabwe.
To say "Karanga means coward" in 2013 was to try and show people like Mnangagwa that he was busy rearing a time bomb which would wipe him out.
The way forward now is for the Katanga to consolidate their role by uniting all Zimbabweans who want a tribally neutral Government.
If the Karangas stood firm behind a neutral and young civilian like Welshman Ncube, we would get rid of all this Schizophrenic Armed Dynasty which Mnangagwa honed in 40 years.
