MAY Cde Chino­timba in­ter­vene at the sit­u­a­tion at Hozeki Farm in Maron­dera. We are be­ing used like slaves by the white­man here. — Vil­lager, Ma­howa Village, Mure­hwa

I AM look­ing for my dady. His name is Prom­ise Nduku and he was work­ing in Vic­to­ria Falls in 1998 and he last saw my mother when she was preg­nant. Any­one with in­for­ma­tion con­tact me on 0779386995. — Des­per­ate.

ON De­cem­ber 5, 1990 Bosso beat DeMbare 3-1 be­fore a ca­pac­ity 60,000 fans. It was a Zifa cup fi­nal. Bosso had the likes of Rah­man Gumbo, W. Khu­malo, A. Ndlovu etc and DeMbare had F Shon­hayi, H Charles, P Fanuel etc. All these play­ers were once Young War­riors. To­day even if a dou­ble header in­volv­ing DeMbare, Bosso, Caps, Chicken Inn, is or­gan­ised they can­not 60 per­cent fill the NSS even if the cheap­est ticket is $2. The prob­lem is most teams ad­min­is­tra­tors are not foot­ball peo­ple and they want in­stant re­sults thus de­stroy­ing the ju­niors. It took Euro­pean teams over a cen­tury to be what they are to­day. They pro­duce, sell and buy, it is en­ter­tain­ment and busi­ness com­bined. If a young player makes a blun­der it is called in­ex­pe­ri­ence. If an old player makes a blun­der it is called a mis­take. To im­prove our game we need tal­ent not “old peo­ple’s homes”. Let us not plant chill­ies and ex­pect to reap toma­toes. — E Sib­hawuza

IT is re­mark­able that the He­roes Day cam­paign has been launched to en­sure a road safety of a com­plete zero sta­tis­tics against ac­ci­dents as a top pri­or­ity. We re­ally need a traf­fic safety pol­icy to con­tinue en­light­en­ing all road users about the road reg­u­la­tions. — Love­more Kashawo, Harare.

IT is re­fresh­ing to hear that Repub­li­can pres­i­den­tial nom­i­nee Don­ald Trump will dump Ge­orge W Bush’s no­to­ri­ous for­eign pol­icy in favour of non-in­ter­fer­ence in other coun­tries’ do­mes­tic is­sues. Let’s hope that, in the likely event that he beats blood­thirsty Hil­lary Clin­ton in Novem­ber. Trump will stick to his words and walk the talk. We are fed up with end­less lec­tures on democ­racy from these Western coun­tries while they are busy loot­ing our re­sources. — Cde Bla Max Boomerang, Harare.

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Lloyd Chitem­bwe and his charges on the Cup Kings’ 1-0 win against Bosso. We are in this to win and we must not slow down our cam­paign. Let us keep to­gether and bring the league ti­tle home this sea­son. — Jan Mavheneka, Masvingo.

IT is sad how peo­ple are quick to point to the neg­a­tive with­out ever of­fer­ing so­lu­tions. We have de­vel­oped an un­fruit­ful habit of point­ing fin­gers and flaunt­ing so much neg­a­tive en­ergy. Projects like the Pepsi one will pro­vide a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of jobs in the near fu­ture from con­struc­tion and other feeder jobs. — Jackie, Harare.
