HAPPY heroes to all Zimbabweans regardless of different political affliations. — J John BaTino Mahowa Murehwa
ZBCTV where is the coverage of the Rio 2016 Olympics being held right now in Brazil? — Lovemore Kashawo, Harare
WHAT’S happening with our big teams being outplayed by relegation haunted teams. DeMbare and Bosso need to improve their strike force to maintain their status. — WeBlue, Bulawayo
WE are reaping the fruits of freedom sown by Nehanda, Mapondera, Kaguvi, Chingaira, Lobengula and other brave warriors who stood up against oppression. As we celebrate the more recent heroes, let us not forget Umvukela/Chindunduma (1896-97) heroes for they are the founders of modern Zimbabwe. Their courage is the spark that lit the bonfire of liberation. — Chrispen, Harare
WE salute the defenders of our peace, sovereignty, unity and democracy, consolidators of the gains of our liberation and bearers of our National Flag, the Zimbabwe Defence Forces. These men and women are examples of courage, discipline and selfless service. They also hail from the great liberation movements which won us the independence we dearly cherish. We owe it to them the peace for which we are credited as one of the most habitable lands in the world. — Tafadzwa Hunger, Zengeza 4.
HATS off to our armed forces for tracking down the malcontents who were spreading alarm and despondency on social media. Some people have sold their souls to the devil. Just because you are holed up in a foreign land you want to incite violence in your home country as if you have no family here! You may have turned your back on Zimbabwe in your desperation for dirty money, but we are not all political prostitutes like you. We are patriotic Zimbabweans and appreciate that it is us who make Zimbabwe great. — Chrispen, Harare.
THE people trying to fan violence do not have an appreciation of the price that was paid for the peace and self-rule that we enjoy. It is not surprising that most of them are in the diaspora. Thankfully, no right-thinking, straight-living and hard-working Zimbabwean will desert his livelihood to massage the egos of people who pour scorn on their own country to please their white handlers. — Aaron Jinga, Masvingo.
