THERE is no prayer be­yond the grave. Sui­cide can never be the way to ex­press dis­gruntle­ment. We show our­selves ag­grieved in or­der for jus­tice to be done. But when one takes his life, all that re­mains are ques­tion marks and wrongs are never cor­rected. The man who took his life in court must have ap­pealed if he felt that he was a vic­tim of in­jus­tice. He had bet­ter chances to get jus­tice alive than as a dead man. — L-Boy, Masvingo. SOME paras­tatal bosses are show­ing them­selves to be en­e­mies of the peo­ple. How in Zim­babwe does one get a monthly al­lowance of $12 000 for house main­te­nance? These peo­ple are in charge of our pub­lic wealth yet things like other peo­ple not get­ting their salaries on time, be­ing un­em­ployed or un­der­em­ployed, do not con­cern them. For­mer State Pro­cure­ment Board chair­per­son Charles Kuwaza is el­i­gi­ble for prison if the al­le­ga­tions are true. — Tafadzwa Hungwe.

AS long as the “peace­ful demon­stra­tions” con­sist of beat­ing up peo­ple, ston­ing po­lice on duty, burn­ing cars and loot­ing shops, their con­sti­tu­tion­al­ity is ques­tion­able. Once vi­o­lence and co­er­cion be­come your po­lit­i­cal tools, you cede the right to con­sti­tu­tional pro­tec­tion. Hop­ing to un­seat the gov­ern­ment by vi­o­lent demos is ill-ad­vised. Why not sell your ideas through ral­lies and other peace­ful means? — Po­lit­i­cal Ad­vi­sor.
