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.
