The current political environment in Zimbabwe is something of a trivial pursuit towards who gets the upper hand after next year’s 2013 elections. The uncertainty of the last polling results were quite something of a mystery. I wonder if a person like Alban Njube Lobengula (a.k.a. the "crocodile's egg" ) the heir to the throne of King Lobengula, the last monarch to the kingdom of Matabeleland, would return to the land of his fathers. What effect would it bring during the elections. Alban Njube Lobengula is also related by blood that flows through the Khumalo ancestry to Joshua Mqabuko Nkomo who was founder of ZAPU in 1962, once the rival of Mugabe. He surprisingly lost the elections that were held in 1980 to the ZANU party led by Robert Mugabe.They fought together during the liberation wars, and was his alliance during the struggles for the liberation of Rhodesia in the 60's.
The political situation of Zimbabwe is so crucial for the stability of the whole SADC Region, since we are all socio-economically inter-dependent, consequently the success of the other member states promotes productive Investment for the Region as a whole, that is greatly in need of substantial investment incentives, and subsequently bring balance in political; social and financial stability in Southern Africa. There is a proposal which is supported by the Makana Municipality, that was submitted by the King Lobengula Foundation to exhume and expatriate Alban Njube Lobengula, his son Rhodes Njube and Queen mother Mpoiyana to Matopo Hills for reburial. I can’t wait of the moment that will shock and amaze Mugabe government (ZANU-PF) when that day comes, let’s wait and see the outcome of the elections. The ZANU-PF just held its 13th Annual National People's Conference in Gweru, Midlands Province. Its resolution is to embark on "safeguarding, defending, promoting, widening and deepening the ideals and values of Zimbabwe’s heroic liberation struggle for the benefit of all Zimbabweans today and in posterity". I hope that this message will extend to the Royal Khumalo family of AbaThwakazi. The "crocodile's egg" needs to come back home to be hatched.
