Stephen Matenga who allegedly assaulted Polytechnic Dean harasses Viomak for exposing ZANUPF spies
When news that renowned protest singer cum activist Viomak is working on forming a political party, Zimbabwe Development Leaders was reported, some people did not receive the new development as good news after which one of them MDC-T supporter Shepherd Yuda went on a dirty errand claiming that the protest singer is a liar who lied that her protest music is banned in Zimbabwe and that she is targeted by Mugabe’s CIO’s.
Even though some of her enemies have chosen to dispute that she is a protest singer Viomak has arguably remained the only consistent and determined Zimbabwean woman protest singer with hard hitting lyrics that highlight Mugabe’s corruption, bad governance and incompetence. The outstanding activist’s life continues to be cemented within layers of daily verbal insults, threats, harassment and terrorism as news that she is to be the official President of Zimbabwe Development Leaders is spreading.
One of Viomak’s newly found friend- turned-enemy Britain based MDC -T supporter, Shepherd Yuda is said to have joined the ZANUPF CIO network today when he put weight to a discussion by the ZANU PF team of spies, attacking Viomak when he wrote that Viomak ,
“uses pictures which were taken by people who are still resident in Zimbabwe, why were the photographers not targetted? May be she doesnt now the meaning of the words Targetted and Banned.”
The hatred towards her which she says was obviously caused by the fact that she is working on forming a political party among other issues pertaining to obvious petty jealousies and hatred, typical of Zimbabweans, did not come as a shock to her as she is aware that for Zimbabwe to be what it is today it is because of the evil hearts of some of its people.
“Apart from having the highest literacy rate in Africa, Zimbabwe has one of the highest hate and jealousy rate in Africa with a very large number of evil people who are generally pained to see someone climb up the ladder. Generally , If you want to hurt a Zimbabwean progress well in your life. This is one reason why we see that some Zimbabweans tend to mix with people of other nationalities instead of their own.” Said Viomak.
Netherlands based Stephen Matenga did not mince his words either as he shared his views on facebook adding and endorsing his name to the list of the ZANUPF supporters and spies who have decided to terrorise the singer fearing that her political party will divide the votes in the troubled country that has known one president, Mugabe, since independence . The former Harare Polytechnic students leader who also contested on facebook that Viomak should not be called a protest singer and human rights musician, and has since befriended the ZANUPF CIO network spying on Viomak had this to say,
“I dont support Mugabe, Ndabaningi Sithole, Tsvangirai or Mutambara. I dont mind what other people have commented here. I only contest your over exxagerated self importance. I contest your title as protest musician. Simple. i put it t you that you an empty vessel fanning divisionist politics among Zimbabweans.”
He said this in response to a question quoted below raised by Viomak after the rowdy former student leader indicated that he liked comments stating that Mugabe is a great state man of Africa who stands by his words. The comments were posted by two contributors on a video posted by Viomak showing victims of ZANUPF torture accompanied by a ZANUPF propaganda song ‘Uku Kuita’ that showers praises for Mugabe’s leadership and claims that his leadership is endorsed by Africa. The song is believed to be one of ZANUPF’s newly released propaganda ‘jingles’compiled to amass support for the ageing leader in preparation for a possible election next year.
“Stephen Matenga .I see you like the comments by your colleagues that Mugabe is a great state man of Africa who stands by his words as he burns opposition members and murders citizens.” Queried Viomak.
The question was obviously not received well by Stephen who was then called a ZANUPF apologist by Viomak.
After reading in the Zimbabwe mail that Viomak had exposed a facebook ZANUPF CIO spying network, Netherlands based Stephen Matenga did not take the news lightly after which he immediately joined the ZANUPF spies network so as to create a stronger network as the team embarked on attacking the outspoken activist whose determination to see a Mugabe free Zimbabwe remains as intact as before even with GNU in place.
“To show his anger Stephen Matenga went on to post an unprovoked and confrontational message on my facebook wall.” Narrated Viomak.
Stephen Matenga “Violet Makamure, I kindly challenge you to visit my status where I have said, Violet Makamure should just shut up. I have argued that you are not a protest musician and you are in exile not from Zimbabwe but from thinking and that you dont produce any music fitting the honourablle definition of protest musician. I further said your statements are mere hogwash as they make no sense at all but rather insult the intelligence as well as undermine the efforts of true revolutionaries and democrats fighting for Zimbabwe's reconstruction, not on facebook but in Zimbabwe.”
Viomak who explained that the message came as a shock to her since she doesn’t remember exchanging bad words with Stephen and was not even aware of who Stephen Matenga is until he confronted her, visited Stephen’s profile status as requested by him and saw the unedited message below.”
Stephen Matenga “VIOMAK should just shut up.
I have just seen this article about Violet Makamure (Viomak).
I have just seen this article about Violet Makamure (Viomak).
With all due respect to The Zimbabwe Mail, I dont think this is a news article. Or maybe I missed that its under opinions or letters to the editor. I wish to contest the following; I doubt that it has been written by Harriet as indicated as the bitter language suggests it was written by Violet Makamure. In the spirit of national unity, I dont think its a crime for people to write the political party they support on their Facebook profile. I have friends who have written MDC,Zapu and Zanu-PF and i dont see anything wrong with that.I put it to Violet Makamure that she is over-exxagerating her importance by calling herself protest musician who is in exile. I have asked 500 of my 1600 facebook friends if they know Viomak as she calls herself and they said they only know her as a self-proclaimed human rights musician on facebook who comments about everything and makes no sense at all, none knew her music. I conclude that for any media establishment to allow such howash opinions to be presented as news is robbing the public. gutter journalism. I wish to be guided if i am as lost as Violet Makamure. Stephen Matenga. The Hague, Netherlands.”
According to an email in my possession, Stephen Matenga who is reported to have been at one time suspended indefinitely as president of Harare Polytechnic Students’ Representative Council (SRC), for allegedly assaulting the dean of students, Taurayi Gavi, went on to label Viomak as an empty vessel who wastes time on the internet doing nothing.
Stephen Matenga “Violet Makamure (Viomak) should just shut up. What protest musician in exile does she claim to be. Who even knows her music? You are evidence of the problem of having 24-hour internet access without neither anything to say or the reasoning capacity. Empty vessels make a lot of noise.”
Undeterred Viomak who has suffered torment under male chauvinists like Stephen ever since I started publicising and writing about her music and activism, asked Stephen why he was wasting his time giving attention to an empty vessel when she said,
“The good thing is empty vessels make a lot of noise BUT they get full vessels like yourself to waste your time and energy writing about them.So to me they are not empty vessels but are full vessels. If they are empty vessels why would INTELLIGENT people waste time on them? Unless you are telling me that you are foolish”.
Responding to his friend who had asked what the problem was Stephen remained firm in his assertion as he proclaimed that Viomak is not a protest musician worth the recognition when he said,
“Kungoshama here nhai nhai. She insults the inteligence of people, we know protest musicians and they are there in Zimbabwe. A real protest musician in exile could be Dr Thomas Mapfumo, Violet Makamure is a nonentity.”
Communicating on email Viomak said,
“The violent and disturbed former student leader Stephen Matenga is a striking example of the nasty experiences that many women face on a daily basis as ignorant male chauvinists pounce on them and degrade them to the extent of even denying what women have achieved even if they are seeing the achievements. I am convinced he has a psychological problem. Netherlands psychiatrists should take him in”.
“I sing protest music and I have released 6 protest music albums plus one single song, so for someone to say that I am not a protest singer is extreme madness, and if Stephen Matenga says I am not a protest singer it only shows that he is psychologically unstable .I guess I am just being persecuted for being a strong and focused woman. The fact that he had the nerve to post on my facebook wall an unprovoked message challenging me to visit his status is evidence enough that he is a male chauvinist whose weak power is felt through terrorising women. Ever since it was publicised that I am working on forming a political party I have been tormented by weak minded and insecure men who are convinced that a woman should only be seen cleaning their vomit after a beer drinking spree. ”Added Viomak.
In the meantime Viomak has confirmed that it is official that the suspicious Netherlands based Stephen Matenga’s RECENT ACTIVITY on facebook shows that he is now friends with Cecila Kadzamira,Wadzanayi Maresa and Naison Gwarada the ZANUPF spies who she exposed for spying on her as I reported a few days ago. The two are among some ZANUPF spies who went on a wild goose chase referring to her using a false name. Stephen has since referred to Viomak using news names including Viomap and mine. Stephen is also said to have befriended some confirmed ZANUPF supporters ,Cliff Gwarada, Patience Kunyuki, and Violet Mwedzi Makamure (Portia Saurombe), as they group to strengthen their attack on the anti Mugabe activist.
“Of concern is what these dangerous ZANUPF supporters are doing in Britain as some of them are allegedly living in Britain.” Asked Viomak.
