CHIEF Vezubuhle is spot on when he accusses leaders in Matabeleland for not spearhearding development in the region. There is a lot that can be done in Filabusi to alleviate poverty and hunger but since it is “each man for himself” we are lagging behind as far as development is concerned. — Beggars on a Beach of Gold, Filabusi.
MY September tip, it seems an intensive heat of sun is upon us. Ensure you drink a lot of cold water. Stay indoors or shelter under a tree. — Lovemore Kashawo, Harare.
NOTICE, indigenisation in progress. Creating employment those who cry foul over unemployment you are lazy people with idle minds. Stand up and work nothing comes easily in life. Those who are being used as cheap labour to demonstrate in streets, destroying other people’s property, shame on you. May God forgive you as you do not know that you do not know. — Beggars on a Beach of Gold, Filabusi
COMMAND agriculture is the way forward for our nation. Every Zimbabwean should support this programme to make our nation a bread basket of Africa. Let us pray for the rains to come and go out and work in our fields. We Zimbabweans are not lazy people. Viva farming, viva Zimbabwe, viva command agriculture. — Donald Mutemwa, Mutoko.
IT’S time the truth is said. One would be unrealistic to say Jah Prayzah is not talented or good. The fact, however, is that he has his shortcomings that are never talked about. He is one of the most average instrumentalists on the music scene. I would not even put him on the same level as Progress Chipfumo as far as just instruments are concerned and his lyrics are shallow. They are on the same plane as Zim Dancehall lyrics only they are done in a superior Shona poetic style. His brand of music will not stand the test of time and this is a fact. — Roger Gava, Harare.
THE fact that 80 percent of Zesa debts are owed by 20 percent of the people ought to be corrected. It is significant that Zesa is moving in the right direction. There is no need to focus on people who owe less than $2 000 when there is a significant chunk that owes more than $10 000. I think those households that owe Zesa small amounts are now on the prepayment system and they are slowly, but surely extinguishing their debt. My suggestion would be for everyone to be put on prepayment. That way 50 percent of whatever they pay will go towards extinguishing the debts. — Who’s Who, Via e-mail.
THE last time Highlanders pulled a double over Dynamos they won the league. I am a firm believer that they can pull this off again. Coming from a goal down to secure victory shows that they have the temperament to go the distance. — Thabani Moyo, Bulawayo.
