WE en­joyed the gospel gala in Gwanda. The Town Coun­cil should en­cour­age such spon­sors to drill us bore­holes than col­lab­o­rat­ing with Zinwa prej­u­dic­ing res­i­dents. How do you source funds and to what use would you use it. Your wa­ter is too ex­pen­sive and un­af­ford­able thus no salaries for you, wa­ter must more or less be for free. Re­mem­ber we have cash and jobs cri­sis. Coun­cil­lors fetch donors. Lin­gavali amanzi ethu. — Maxxie, Gwanda

I AM ap­peal­ing to all lead­er­ship un­der Chief Math­ema and to the gov­ern­ment to take Mt­s­hazo ir­ri­ga­tion plan se­ri­ously to ease hunger in Math­ema’s area. It seems the plan was aban­doned long back. Please Hon. Mado­dana Sibanda we thank you for what you are do­ing so far in your con­stituency, Gwanda North, but we are not sat­is­fied, to please us put Mt­s­hazo ir­ri­ga­tion plan in Par­lia­ment to be con­sid­ered as one of the cru­cial projects in Zim­babwe to en­sure food se­cu­rity. We need in­vestors who will pull wa­ter from Don­do­rio Dam, about 10km away, and this will cre­ate em­ploy­ment to thou­sands of job­less youths in the area as far as Mayezane, Maphane, Sim­bum­bumbi, Wabayi Si­bona, etc. The food help which is com­ing now be­longs to old peo­ple starv­ing but if this project comes to life ev­ery­one will ben­e­fit. We need long term plans. Our lead­ers nanso in­qobe. — Papa Ny­oni Wabayi Pri­mary School.

THE don­key that Jesus rode on came back to town for fan­fare the next day and met only stones and sticks. That should serve as a les­son for our hope­less op­po­si­tion move­ments. First time they claimed the kombi driv­ers’ protests and teach­ers’ stay-away as their own. Since then they have called at least four shut­downs and no one has heeded them. Like an at­ten­tion-hun­gry school child, they are now pro­vok­ing mis­chief to get at­ten­tion. — Baba Eric.

I LOVE the idea of ed­u­ca­tion as a Sadc pri­or­ity. Hope­fully, the or­gan­i­sa­tion se­cures fund­ing to op­er­a­tionalise its plans for a tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional univer­sity. In this highly com­pet­i­tive global age, strong in­dus­tries must be a pri­or­ity for the sub-re­gion. If we are to do this suc­cess­fully with­out un­due hand­hold­ing by Western-ori­ented in­sti­tu­tions, then ed­u­ca­tion is the key. — Chrispen.
