Rhodes to Zimbabwe

28 November 2011, 15:03

Just a little deviation from our most notorious stories of the past few weeks, amongst those the infamous “Info Bill” that was approved by the majority of the ruling party, an act that will deprive us of our daily dose of tabloid news we so grown accustomed too, maybe we will never know the real truth that lies behind the dismissal of one of our popular characters in political scenery the youth leader Julius “Juju” Malema since now we going to be limited on what we should know and what is relevant for the dispossessor to reveal, since everything will be discussed behind closed curtains, some of us really going to miss Juju for his frankness about some peculiar subjects which are not suitable for the layman, the poor citizens of this country to know. It might not sound politically correct at the present moment but in retrospect we do need people like Juju to stir up the political scenery now and again just to keep some of our slumbering political leaders on their toes. To Juju “have a wonderful Xmas”, some will come and continue your course, there is a lot hidden out there, and it’s rustling to come out.

Some of the hidden truths of the past century is a story in our “government archives” that needs to be revealed to the nation of Rhodes Njube Lobengula who is buried in shallow grave in Grahamstown, for no apparent explanation. A person of such a status and prestige should be given an honourable burial amongst his ancestors, Mzilikazi and his father King Lobengula, who fought the battles of Matabeleland in 1893/4. The Matopos Hills is a great venue for such a regent, there amongst the royalties lies the bones of Cecil John Rhodes, a significant history lies in those hills full of mysticism and this are some of the truths that the government of South Africa needs to unveil to its “constituency”, the people of Southern Africa, if they are permitted to know this, an article appeared on the Grocotts Newspaper on 18 October 2011, reads, “Rhodes Njube Lobengula, the son of Njube Lobengula is to return to Zimbabwe. The King Lobengula Foundation is preparing to exhume the body of the banned royal son exiled to South Africa in the early 1900's by the British Colonialists, under the command of Cecil John Rhodes, after the devastating wars fought between his grandfather, King Lobengula Khumalo and the British and allied forces in 1893/94, which led to the dispersion and alienation of the AbaThwakazi, a nation founded by King Mzilikazi during his reign.

The circumstances that led to the death of Rhodes Njube Lobengula are a mystery that still haunts the nation, especially the Khumalos, and the government of the day has not surfaced with any answers to close the wounds of the bereaved nation. The ‘heir’ deserves a place of honour among his ancestors in Matopo Hills, where his spirit will finally be laid to rest in dignity. The area in Makana Municipality (Grahamstown), which was previously a cemetery for the fallen Xhosa warriors, heroes and heroines during the liberation struggles against the advancing British Colonists, in defence of their territory (land),is now a home to the descendents of the previous settlers, the Fingo’s (amaMfengu) and other indigenous Xhosa and Khoi tribes from neighbouring farms and villages. It would be a privilege that the return of the lost heir, will coincide with the ‘campaign’, by AbaThwakazi, to the British government for the return of the ‘Armband’, which was stolen by bandits from the grave of Mzilikazi and taken to England, where it is now kept at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London.

The King Lobengula Foundation seeks to extend its partnership to all relevant stakeholders and interested parties to partake in the exhumation and safe return of all the bodies that belong to the Khumalo family who are buried in Fingo Village, at kwaNdancama. The story is also also available on www.YouTube.com/search/king lobengula”.
