VENDORS have a right to demand restitution for the destruction of their wares by opposition activists. Which right-thinking and people-loving political party burns the livelihoods of the very people it wants votes from? — Aaron Jinga, Masvingo.
MANY are mourning in South Africa after the collapse of ponzi schemes. People must take heed of RBZ governor Dr John Mangudya’s warning and stay away from this hoax. Thanks to the governor for communicating the dangers to the people. — Mujoni, SA
A BALANCE has to be made between the rights of demonstrators and non-demonstrators, who want to do their business peacefully without their shops and stalls being looted and vehicles being attacked. Where those who organise demonstrations fail to ensure peace then any court judgment in their favour becomes legally compromised and unsustainable. Is the law blind to the rights of those whose properties are destroyed by the lunatic fringe? — Prof Mzvinavanhu.
I DO not see any problem with prophets beating the bell of prosperity because we all want a good life. However, I do not see why this should be the principal business of our preachers. There are many ways of making money without going to church and many people on Forbes’ rich-list are not even Christian. Preachers must champion righteousness because that is what sets the church apart. Making prosperity the main agenda relegates God to one of many alternatives. — Musora waNzomba.
MDC-T and People First burn vendors’ stalls to get applause from the imperialists. This is done in the name of democracy yet we see the opposition violating property rights and destroying livelihoods. Come election, they will be asking the same vendors and their families in Harare and in rural areas to vote for them. Clueless politicians dig their own graves. — Baba Eric, Harare.
