VI­O­LENCE, loot­ing or prop­erty de­struc­tion is re­ally a set­back and 10 step back­wards for all the devel­op­ment we have done. — Ob­server, Harare.

WHY can’t our ath­letes com­pete for the IAAF Di­a­mond League — a track and field ath­let­ics tour­na­ment which might help to be great at Olympics? — Love­more Kashawo, Harare.

FOR DeMbare’s nill-all draw at Ndi­raya’s Ngezi Plat­inum, re­ally means this sea­son DeMbare has not so far lost to for­mer DeMbare play­ers who are now coaches. — Love­more Kashawo, Harare.

WHAT is the re­al­ity about Zim-As­set? Maybe I am read­ing it wrong, please cor­rect me on the fol­low­ing On Mt­shabezi River, in Matabeleland South, a big dam was built some years ago. The vil­lagers sur­round­ing the dam get noth­ing from it. There is no ir­ri­ga­tion plan there but the wa­ter is trans­ported by a pipe­line to Bulawayo more than 30km away. My big sur­prise is that, this pipe­line passes through Nyan­deni, Bezha, Long­field etc, in all these vil­lages they do not have clean wa­ter. They dig in sandy ‘rivers’ where don­keys and cat­tle drink. Oth­ers are even far but the pipe­line passes in front of their doors with­out leav­ing a drop of wa­ter. When the pipe­line was con­structed some vil­lagers lost their homes and fields to pave its way. This be­longs to them but they get noth­ing from it. Only Bulawayo res­i­dents are win­ning. Is this what is meant by Zim-As­set? Where is Mt­s­hazo ir­ri­ga­tion plan? We want our re­sources in our hands ben­e­fit­ing our com­mu­ni­ties. — Ny­oni Wabayi.
