THE Third World is a bad place for mankind. Beit­bridgeChirundu Road will cost $3 mil­lion per kilo­me­tre and $30 per cen­time­tre. We are head­ing nowhere. Min­istry of Trans­port please, en­lighten us. — Makado

I AM sur­prised by the chiefs who put pres­sure on the Gov­ern­ment to give them their three months’ salaries. Fol­low­ing our tra­di­tions chiefs got their dues from the cases brought to them by the com­plainants. So if the chief re­ceives a goat or $50 for each case re­ported to him, how much does he get for four cases per month? If you chiefs ad­vise us as your so­ci­ety to fol­low our tra­di­tion, you must also fol­low our tra­di­tions by get­ting your dues tra­di­tion­ally, not suck­ing our eco­nom­i­cally strug­gling gov­ern­ment. — S Moyo, Mbun­dane, Bu­l­awayo

CHIDUNGWE are you a cap­tain or just a player. You can­not tell us that at your age you can­not stop a pass from some­one. Are you car­ry­ing a hot egg be­tween your legs. Wake up oth­er­wise Ek­bay will not re­new his con­tract. — Dis­ap­pointed, Mdaw­ini, Gweru

AT present there are some black farm­ers with vast and ex­ten­sive farms but are sadly re­luc­tant to have those farms re­duced to a rea­son­able size so as to al­low those de­sirous of own­ing them too to do so now and in fu­ture. Those fiercely re­sist­ing these de­mar­ca­tions should bear in mind that the land does not ex­pand but the pop­u­la­tion in­creases at about 3 per­cent ev­ery 10 years, so we must con­sider the needs of pos­ter­ity and not to hoard large tracts of land for farm­ing when oth­ers have noth­ing. Pres­i­dent Mu­gabe and oth­ers did well to fight for the land for all of us and not for a few. — EL Muk­w­ereza

I WOULD like to say tough luck to the Mighty War­riors, the odds were against you but you had a good out­ing. A 6-1 score­line is not the worst that could hap­pen con­sid­er­ing that a much stronger Ghana­nian team was thrashed 11-0 by the same Ger­man team. There were a lot of pos­i­tives in the match, Mlauzi and the girls can build on them. — Joseph

ANY vi­o­lent demon­stra­tions should be con­demned. Nowhere in this world, even in Heaven, can vi­o­lence be tol­er­ated. There are forces hell-bent on frus­trat­ing Gov­ern­ment ef­forts to re­solve the liq­uid­ity sit­u­a­tion in our econ­omy. They fear that this may as­sist eco­nomic re­cov­ery against the il­le­gal sanc­tions that are the main cause of our eco­nomic nadir and an­guish.— Anon

IF by law Zim­babwe can use multi-cur­ren­cies then Bond notes are a form of cur­rency and is equiv­a­lent to the use of any other for­eign based and fu­ture based cur­ren­cies. The def­i­ni­tion of “for­eign cur­ren­cies” may also in­clude Bond Notes or any other in­no­va­tions. For­mer Vice Pres­i­dent Joice Mu­juru may want to tell us that if France had in­tro­duced Bond Notes will they be ac­cepted as a for­eign cur­rency in Zim­babwe un­der the Re­serve Bank Act by the def­i­ni­tion? The log­i­cal an­swer would be yes and there­fore it she has no case. — Roy, Nor­ton
