Chiefs petition VP Mnangagwa for television and radio station for Matabeleland

Three Matabeleland chiefs met with Vice President Emmerson Mnangagwa to voice their concerns about the alleged marginalisation of Matabeleland. The chiefs also petitioned the Vice President for a broadcasting licence to establish a television and radio station for Matabeleland which would broadcast in Ndebele.   The three are chiefs Nhlanhla Felix Ndiweni of Ntabazinduna, Richmond Gwebu of Buhera, and Mbiko Khumalo of Lupane.

Speaking after the meeting, Chief Ndiweni said:

We said to the VP that we want Matabeleland to have a television and radio station in the Ndebele language, and if we get that licence, it must be a national radio and television station.

In South Africa, is it already happening and they have radio stations in different languages of that country.

The chiefs also requested for more transparent recruiting processes saying:

…We said we want the Ndebele people to have employment opportunities because we noted that people from other regions get jobs in Matabeleland when we have qualified people to occupy the positions. Our children have O and A levels and we want them to get employed in the police force, prison services, the military and other departments.
