“BIG” thieves are very lucky, in­stead of be­ing sent to prison they are sus­pended. The word cor­rupt should be erased from our so­ci­ety and be re­placed by theft or steal. Mat­son Hlalo was called all names when he chal­lenged the ap­point­ment of Banda to a cer­tain post. He has shown that he reaps where he did not sow. In fact, that is or­gan­ised steal­ing. Ar­rest them. Where is the law? Is it for small fish only? — ES. HON­OURABLE Saviour Ka­sukuwere please go back to BCC and carry out fur­ther in­ves­ti­ga­tions. These cor­rupt coun­cil­lors have been award­ing them­selves ten­ders to run BCC shops, toi­lets, car parks and there is Ex­pric­cos taxi cabs, the only taxi cabs in Bu­l­awayo given a rank to do stage car­riage like kom­bis charg­ing 50c per head in­stead of wait­ing for hires like all other taxi cabs. Their rank is right in front of Gift Banda’s pri­vate of­fice and BCC Traf­fic En­force­ment is un­der strict in­struc­tions not to ha­rass Ex­pric­cos be­cause some cor­rupt coun­cil­lors own taxi cabs un­der the Ex­pric­cos brand. Ex­pric­cos boasts that they are highly con­nected at BCC and they are un­touch­able and above BCC by-laws. As a re­sult Ex­pric­cos has killed busi­ness for other taxi cabs. By charg­ing kombi fares it has also pushed out kom­bis from Nust, Sun­ninghill, UBH routes. Please, re­turn Hon­ourable Min­is­ter. — Anti-Cor­rup­tion, Nust, Bu­l­awayo Nkosi

AL­THOUGH ZBC/TV dis­ap­points me in terms of soc­cer cov­er­age, they are do­ing a good job in show­ing us what is hap­pen­ing in some ru­ral ar­eas. Do all these places where peo­ple are suf­fer­ing have coun­cil­lors and MPs? How can a school stay the whole term with one teacher? Part time teach­ers are needed whether we like it or not. What is the fu­ture of chil­dren who do not go to school? — E.S
