…most likely genocide and the Holocaust.
These are the most outstanding names of groups of people that have been subjected to untold suffering, by other more powerful and savage groups of people, over the course of the past century – as they have been brutalised in a brazen attempt to annihilate them from the face of the planet.
But, there is one thing that is most disturbing about most of these genocides – besides the Holocaust, in which more than six million Jews were massacred by the Nazis – justice has eluded the rest of these groups.
As much as there have been some half-hearted attempts in bringing to book those – mainly Hutu – who were responsible for the slaughter of nearly a million Tutsis in the Rwanda genocide of 1994, there has truly never been any genuine effort to ensure that all those accused of these satanic acts are answerable.
Take for instance, today countless Rohingya have been killed, raped, beaten up, and had their homes touched by the Myanmar army – most having to flee to neighbouring Bangladesh – yet, the world is taking its sweet time in bringing those responsible to justice.
This is in spite of the United Nations (UN) recently releasing a report to the effect that what has transpired in Myanmar is indeed genocide – and its de facto leader is still regarded as a heroine, as her Noble Peace Prize still stands.
One can strip an athlete like Marion Jones of all her Olympic medals for taking a few banned performance enhancement drugs, but when a once reverred national leader sits back whilst countless of her compatriots are butchered, the world does not even revoke her honors.
Another case in point is Zimbabwe, where over 20,000 innocent and unarmed men, women and children of the Ndebele tribe were mercilessly massacred by the ZANU PF regime in the 1980s, yet the leaders responsible are today still highly regarded by the international community!
What manner of obscenity is this?
Mnangagwa – together with his mentor, former president Robert Mugabe – were the architects of the worst butchering of an innocent people in modern Zimbabwe.
Yet, the world sees it fit to look aside!<
Mnangagwa has already shown that he would never seriously institute any real action against all those responsible – as that would be akin to sending a rapist to arrest and prosecute himself!
Some do not have identity particulars, as their parents disappeared without a trace, and there is no death certificate, which is required to obtain these necessary documents – leaving these children as stateless, uneducated, and unemployable.
So many of these mostly Ndebele victims had to flee their country and seek refuge in neighbouring countries, where they are still living as paupers.
What did they do to deserve this?
Does anyone care about their plight, or are they just an inconvenience to those world powers who would want to pretend that none of this took place, so that they can do business with these murderers, in peace?
What a lucky fellow Mnangagwa is!
Mnangagwa is a rogue and illegimate president, whose place is at the International Criminal Court (ICC), not the State House.
Why did they not just ‘let bygones be bygones’ and just move on, and focus on re-building Europe?
This is something that occurred over 73 years ago!
The world can not ignore what Mnangagwa, Mugabe and their racist and tribalist regime did to an innocent and unarmed people in the Midlands and Matebeleland provinces of Zimbabwe.
Every drop of blood spilt by these heartless and callous men has to be answerable for – as no amount of wanting to do business with Zimbabwe is worth ignoring the cries of those whose bodies remain undiscovered in mass graves, mine shafts and dissolved in acid throughout the provinces.
