LOST is a driver’s li­cence and ID card for Nd­abez­inhle Ma­mane. If found kindly call 0778 367 544. — Ma­mane, Bulawayo

I RE­MEM­BER through this feed­back sec­tion urg­ing bak­ers to bake half loaves. In­deed, now two ma­jor bak­eries have taken my plea into con­sid­er­a­tion. Thank you bak­ers. — Love­more Kashawo.

CAN the peo­ple’s gov­ern­ment please in­ter­vene and help its vot­ers. Zesa has cut off elec­tric­ity at En­tum­bane sub­urbs, say­ing that peo­ple should pay their bills in in­stal­ments. — Andy

THE Min­is­ter of Fi­nance an­nounced in De­cem­ber 2015 that the Zim­babwe Rev­enue Au­thor­ity (Zimra) was go­ing to in­stall closed cir­cuit tele­vi­sion at the coun­try’s bor­ders start­ing with Beit­bridge Bor­der Post. As a con­cerned and in­ter­ested cit­i­zen, I was wait­ing for the day the ten­der was go­ing to be ad­ver­tised in the press. To my sur­prise, dur­ing the mid-term fis­cal pol­icy re­view, the min­is­ter an­nounced that phase one of the project has al­ready been com­pleted. If we are to be se­ri­ous in elim­i­nat­ing cor­rup­tion and if we want good cor­po­rate prin­ci­ples to be ob­served at Zimra, th­ese projects must be ten­dered in a trans­par­ent man­ner. We need to plug tax­pay­ers’ funds leak­ages. Tax pay­ers’ funds need to be used in a trans­par­ent man­ner. They are sweat­ing to pay th­ese funds. — Con­cerned Cit­i­zen

YOU wrote yes­ter­day that the rat­tled civil ser­vants have de­manded that Gov­ern­ment com­mits it­self on pa­per to pay their bonuses. It should be very easy. The bond notes will ride to the res­cue in a joint op­er­a­tion of both quan­ti­ta­tive eas­ing and fi­nan­cial re­pres­sion. It may also her­ald Zim-exit from the US dol­lar com­mu­nity. — Chi­ro­rodziva

IT would be very naïve and folly for the Zanu-PF Gov­ern­ment to suc­cumb to the op­po­si­tion’s de­mands. Th­ese op­po­si­tion par­ties only want to sat­isfy their po­lit­i­cal am­bi­tions, and must con­vince the elec­torate if ever they are to get into Gov­ern­ment come elec­tion time. The Gov­ern­ment must stamp its au­thor­ity and en­sure that those or­gan­is­ing demon­stra­tions which in­fringe on the rights of oth­ers are dealt with se­verely. The elec­torate is not fool­ish and peo­ple make in­formed de­ci­sions. — Va­hera, Wedza
