Parks Department must act on stray lions
EDITOR — Jambezi villagers live in constant fear as a daring pride of lions is on the loose.
Livestocks have been killed in the Nemananga, Kachecheti, Mbizha, Milonga and Kanywambizi wards thereby impoverishing locals who value their domestic animals as a source of livelihood. Residents are not amused.
I was touched by the words of headman Zondani Chabwa Mazhanga addressing mourners at a funeral in Silibinda area recently when he bemoaned untimely intervention by the Parks and Wildlife Authorities in driving away the cats from the residential areas.
He articulated that several livestocks ranging from cattle to pigs have fallen prey to the marauding cats, adding that a man from Jabula area ran spiritedly for dear life when he encountered the pride in the Lukunguni forest as he tried to round up his herd of cattle.
Very soon human lives will be lost to the pride if nothing tangible is done to redress the situation.
Drought is ravishing Jambezi villagers and they are relying on the Government grain distribution scheme and supplement their food security by selling livestocks.
I humbly submit that may those in authority do their part by driving away the most dreaded cats from the residential areas into the zoo.
Our councillor seem to have gone into a very long leave and we are as yet to see him attending to the grievances from his subjects.
I am not happy at all about this. Victor Sibanda, Victoria Falls. THE nation needs continuity, not uncertainty. President Mugabe is in full control and he’s not going anywhere. God will decide when the President’s rule will end, not traitorous sellouts. You see, we all know leaders are chosen by God; and God chose Cde Robert Gabriel Mugabe to be the current leader of Zimbabwe. — Rachel Moyo, Mutare
READING about the accident where six apostolic church members died in an accident was really disheartening. How many people continue to die on the roads every week in Zimbabwe? Please, can something be done to avoid such loss of life? What are the legislators saying about this carnage on our roads? — Doctor Shava

DR Lazarus Dokora, there are high profile private secondary schools charging around $50 for all prospective students who want forms to enrol for Form One next year. What is going on here when the Government position is that no money should be charged for this exercise? I would like the Minister to give us a position concerning these schools. Are they taking orders from a parallel Ministry different from his? — Concerned Parent
