I do not be­lieve ev­ery ru­mour that cir­cu­lates about other peo­ple. It does not sound quite right for some­one to say she was a sex slave for three years yet she chose to sweep what she claims to be an abuse un­der the car­pet. The Jah Prayzah and Gonyeti sex scan­dal is a fab­ri­cated story that seeks to in­jure and de­fame the rep­u­ta­tion of a risen Jah Prayzah. Where was this lady all these years and why was she silent about the case? Let us get our facts straight be­fore we com­ment on some is­sues. — Afiki Igwe Mbiya, Cow­dray Park, Bu­l­awayo.

THE past Arse­nal game goal against Burn­ley, was it the hand of God? — Love­more Kashawo, Harare.

FOR its cap­i­tal ex­pen­di­ture, Zesa should try to raise fund­ing in­ter­nally rather than ex­ter­nally, un­less its eq­uity in­vest­ment is in its ther­mal power plants projects. There is no harm, for ex­am­ple, in Eskom of South Africa tak­ing a 40 to 60 per­cent stake in Hwange 7 and 8 in re­turn for a power off-take agree­ment for an equal per­cent­age of the power to be gen­er­ated. The bulk of Zesa’s debt book should also be sold to lo­cal in­sti­tu­tions that can pay for it over a 12-month pe­riod in equal in­stal­ments. — Moto Muzhinji, Harare.

FOL­LOW­ING the au­dit that re­vealed ram­pant cor­rup­tion at Zimra, the pub­lic ex­pects to see pros­e­cu­tions. Those who were in­volved should be held re­spon­si­ble for their ac­tions. We need to take a firm stance against cor­rup­tion and not just pay lip ser­vice to it. — Regi­nald Ncube, Bu­l­awayo.

A UNITED Zanu-PF, as the rul­ing party, should be able to sup­port Gov­ern­ment eco­nomic pro­grammes aimed at al­le­vi­at­ing the plight of the masses, given the rav­aging neg­a­tive ef­fects of the il­le­gal sanc­tions im­posed by the West. It is only a united revo­lu­tion­ary fam­ily that can de­feat the sin­is­ter, ne­far­i­ous and des­per­ate neo-lib­eral po­lit­i­cal ac­tiv­i­ties that have re­cently been char­ac­terised by Western spon­sored vi­o­lence in our moth­er­land. — Cde Mzvinavhu, Harare.
