THE provisional lifting of the ban on protests must not be interpreted as an endorsement of criminal behaviour. Police must be on the alert for lawbreakers who violate other citizens’ rights under the guise of exercising theirs. — Honour Mashiri. YOUTHS must be allocated land in spite of their religious and political affiliation. The sectarian allocation of land is distressing and unacceptable. Thank you, President Mugabe, for weighing in on this issue. Youths have been sidelined by elitist conspiracies for too long yet they are one of the key demographics in this country. This must be corrected. — Musoro WaNzomba.
I AGREE with Tafara Shumba’s prognosis of Nera and one of its uninspiring commanders, Mr Didymus Mutasa. Even after being relegated to a nonentity in a party he helped to form, our desperate Mr Mutasa is clinging on like a drowning man. ZimPF spokesperson Jealous Mawarire’s unkind revelation that the party wants to use and shelf Mutasa regardless of his “tainted image” makes sad reading. — Lovemore Bandika, Gweru.
TALK of another GNU is misinformed. President Robert Mugabe and Zanu-PF have the popular mandate to lead Zimbabwe to the next elections in 2018. We do not know for certain what the MDC-T’s objective is apart from wanting President Mugabe to leave office. — Baba Gari, Gutu.
