HON­OURABLE Phillip Chiyangwa must do bet­ter for the War­riors. Please do us proud at Af­con. — Batino J. Jones Mushinga Ma­howa, Mre­hwa.

GWERU City Coun­cil is against the com­mis­sion ap­pointed by Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment Min­is­ter be­cause their shenani­gans will be laid bare. Hon­estly, the city re­sem­bles a ghost town with only progress be­ing nu­mer­ous bill­boards along its ma­jor roads. — Mhofu, Kopje, Gweru

WILL the “records” said to have been achieved by the War­riors make us win the cup? Maybe we have for­got­ten that South Africa has played in 3World Cups, 2 Olympics, 9 Af­con (won it once and were sil­ver medal­lists in 1998) Zam­bia and South Africa are the only South­ern Africa sides to have won the Af­con. We were lucky for get­ting such an easy draw and it could have been an in­sult to the na­tions if we had failed to qual­ify. The Dream Team was al­ways paired with big guns. Let us stop com­par­ing play­ers and plan for Gabon. Fail­ing to beat Gunea is a big warn­ing of what to ex­pect in Gabon. Please, re­porters stop try­ing to se­lect play­ers for Pa­suwa in­di­rectly. I hope Pa­suwa won’t leave play­ers that worked hard to qual­ify for “Bet­ter” play­ers. You saw what hap­pened to those who left B Daka be­hind to try to reap where they did not sow. — E Sib­hawuza.

I READ with in­ter­est the launch of a maize post emer­gence her­bi­cide which is ex­pected to save time and labour for farm­ers. Hope­fully, this chem­i­cal is em­braced by ru­ral farm­ers who are tied down from the pur­suit of gain­ful ac­tiv­i­ties as they spend most of their time weed­ing. — Jeff Bandika, Harare.

THE Con­fed­er­a­tion of Zim­babwe In­dus­tries has come in as the voice of rea­son re­gard­ing the mind­less ri­ots in­sti­gated by op­po­si­tion par­ties. Loss of prop­erty and in­ter­rup­tion of busi­ness in vi­o­lent demon­stra­tions un­nec­es­sar­ily bleeds the econ­omy. You can­not cry about the econ­omy while de­stroy­ing the very busi­nesses that are hold­ing the coun­try to­gether. You can­not cry for a bet­ter Zim­babwe while call­ing for its shut­down. — Wek­waMa­here, Maron­dera.
