ON this Heroes’ Day, we say reflect on the cost of our hard-won Independence. We salute the liberation fighters, living and departed, whose sacrifices made Zimbabwe possible. We honour the masses whose support made victory certain; they are water in which the guerrillas swam as Chairman Mao taught. We thank God for blessing us with this side of paradise. We remind reactionaries and imperialist proxies that they belong to history’s dustbins. We strengthen the patriotic and talented youths who will make this nation great. — Tafadzwa Hungwe. THE Mighty Warriors might have dropped crucial points already but their representation of Zimbabwe at the global arena deserves applause. They are giving us the best under the circumstance and the onus is on Zifa to invest more into the development of this sport. Right now, it seems the girl child is sidelined by Zifa in favour of the men’s team. I would like to wish the team and their technical department all the best. — Baba Gari, Harare.
