Mthwakazi is an oppressed people under the post-colonial State established as Zimbabwe, more than it has been under colonial rule. This is because, unlike under colonial rule where Mthwakazi was oppressed as part of the generic non-White group,under Zimbabwean rule Mthwakazi has been oppressed directly and targetedly as Mthwakazi.Under colonial rule the basis of the oppression of Mthwakazi was racial domination. Under the post-colonial state established as Zimbabwe,the basis of oppression has been tribal domination.
Throughout history the Mthwakazi territory has been occupied variously by different groups, remnants of whom form the multi- ethnic and multi-cultural society that Mthwakazi is today. Before the conquest of Mthwakazi by the British South Africa Company on 3rd November 1893, Mthwakazi territory was an independent and sovereign Kingdom ruled by King Mzilikazi. The territorial integrity of the Kingdom of Mthwakazi was governed by the treaties with the Transvaal and England, the two states which shared the four common borders with the Kingdom of Mthwakazi. The boundaries conform to the Berlin Conference Agreement of 1885 as ratified by the Treaty of Versailles in 1919, and consequently the United Nations in 1945.CONSTITUTIONAL HISTORY
The Mthwakazi Question arose out of conquest of Mthwakazi on the 3rd November 1893. It was to receive a sharp focus again in 1896 with the advent of what became known as the Matebele Rebellion, and subsequently at various stages in the long political history of Mthwakazi. The British responded to the Mthwakazi Question by legitimizing the ''Rule by Conquest''. On 20th December 1893 the British, through Cecil John Rhodes’ BSA Company, renamed the conquered Mthwakazi Kingdom, ‘Matebeleland’. On 18th July 1894, Britain promulgated the Matabeleland Order-in-Council as the basis for rule by conquest over Mthwakazi. On 29 July 1918, the Privy Council declared Matabeleland-Order-in-Council the judicial authority over Mthwakazi.
