PROPONENTS of the Mthwakazi kingdom who are against former Vice President Joice Mujuru visiting Gukurahundi sites have vowed to fight to the bitter end to stop the newly formed Zimbabwe People First party leader from visiting Gukurahundi graves in Matabeleland.

Members of the South African Police Service and the Tshwane metro police had to intervene at the ZimPF rally in Mamelodi in Pretoria on Saturday as activists invaded the pitch, demanding answers over the emotive Gukurahundi massacres which left around 20 000 perceived Zapu supporters dead in the southwestern parts of zimbabwe. 

Some members of the grouping told an online publication sympathetic to the Matabeleland cause that they "are committed to confront Mujuru head-on demanding answers concerning Gukurahundi atrocities".
 

According to media reports, about four Matabeleland activists were bundled out of Mujuru's rally in Mamelodi South Africa after trying to force themselves through a security barricade demanding to talk to Mujuru for answers on her role on Gukurahundi and to tell her to stop her plans to visit Gukurahundi sites. 

Following the weekend fracas in neigbhouring South Africa and despite efforts by some ZimPF members to exonerate Mujuru, activists told Bulawayo24.com that they have since gone back to the drawing board to strategize plan B which they will use to deliver their message in person to Mujuru to get her hands off the Gukurahundi sites and not even talk about Gukurahundi at all. 

"Mujuru killed our parents with her husband and (President) Mugabe and she now wants to go back to the graves they created, not in our life time," a source who claims to have been at the Pretoria rally is quoted as saying. 

Mujuru reportedly told her supporters in Gwanda a few weeks ago that she wants to visit Bhalagwe Mine where thousands of Gukurahundi victims were thrown down the disused mine shafts, but her party has refuted the claims. 

Her intentions have torched a storm in Matabeleland whose people feel she must not go to the graves as she was part of the government that inflicted the Gukurahundi atrocities on the people of the region.
