BULAWAYO, In a recent tweet, the Dutchess of Matebeleland, Lisa Ncube, has voiced her concerns over the continued intimidation and torture of the Ndebele people by the government of Zimbabwe. In the tweet, she warns against voting for a man who has been responsible for the murder of Ndebele people in Matabeleland.
Ncube’s tweet is a stark reminder of the atrocities committed by the Zimbabwean government during the Gukurahundi genocide, which claimed the lives of an estimated 20,000 Ndebele people in the 1980s. Despite being a painful memory for many Ndebele people, the government has not shown any remorse for its actions.
In her tweet, Ncube also highlighted the recent destruction of memorial plaques for Gukurahundi victims at Bhalagwe. This act of vandalism is yet another attempt to erase the memory of the genocide and further oppress the Ndebele people.
Ncube’s warning is a call to action for Ndebele people to think carefully about their vote in the upcoming elections. By voting for a man who has committed such atrocities against their own people, they are complicit in the ongoing torture and intimidation.
The tweet has sparked a debate on social media, with many people expressing their support for Ncube’s message. Some have also called on the Zimbabwean government to acknowledge and apologize for its role in the Gukurahundi genocide.
The Dutchess of Matebeleland, Lisa Ncube, is known for her outspokenness and activism on behalf of the Ndebele people. Her tweet serves as a reminder of the ongoing struggle for justice and equality for all people in Zimbabwe.

The intimidation continues up to day.They have been destroying memorial plaques for Gukurahundi victims recently at Bhalagwe
The torture continues, and if you vote for such a man and you are ndebele then you are complicit in the torture of your own people.
They killed our parents, denied us to bury them and now they follow to destroy memorial plaques.
