PRES­I­DENT Mu­gabe is right not to sign the Spe­cial Eco­nomic Zones Bill. The sec­tion that seeks to re­move the ap­pli­ca­tion of the Labour Act is in vi­o­la­tion of our own Con­sti­tu­tion as well as our in­ter­na­tional obli­ga­tions. The In­ter­na­tional Labour Or­gan­i­sa­tion cen­sured Zim­babwe in June 2016 about that Bill. In­ter­na­tional re­search has shown that coun­tries that banned the ap­pli­ca­tion of labour laws have not ben­e­fited much. In fact you can­not grow an econ­omy by sell­ing out your own peo­ple as in­cen­tives to in­ven­tors. — Progress Mu­timutema, Harare

I THINK Dr Joice Mu­juru was seek­ing rel­e­vance with her Con­sti­tu­tional Court ap­pli­ca­tion to stop bond notes. This is­sue was ap­proved by the Pres­i­dent a long time ago and I don’t know why peo­ple want to make fools of them­selves when they know very well that once some­thing has been ap­proved at the high­est of­fice in the land, there is no go­ing back. Dr Mu­juru must wait un­til she gets into power, if ever for­tune be­falls her, then she can in­tro­duce her own poli­cies, cur­ren­cies, etc. — Eliah Dube, Gweru

HOW are the War­riors prepa­ra­tions for Af­con 2017 shap­ing up? First of all, have Zifa be­gun the process of se­cur­ing funds for our team? There are so many is­sues that can be dealt with now such as trans­port, ac­com­mo­da­tion and diet. We need to put on a good show­ing at the tour­na­ment and Zifa need to get the prepa­ra­tions go­ing now. — Ed­ward Saung­weme.
