I AM sur­prised that no one has said that Temba Mliswa’s vic­tory in the Nor­ton elec­tion was rigged. Why is it that when Zanu-PF wins, the elec­tion is said to have been rigged but if the op­po­si­tion wins, it is free and fair? Let us have stan­dards please. If you be­lieve that Zanu-PF rigs elec­tions, then no elec­tion is fair. The op­po­si­tion is clearly just a bunch of cry- ba­bies and sore losers who don’t want to ac­cept that there are some peo­ple who sup­port Zanu-PF and vote for them re­li­giously. — Franco Ten­dayi

THE cholera and ty­phoid alert is­sued by the Govern­ment last week calls for ac­tion. Peo­ple should en­sure that they try as much as pos­si­ble to use clean wa­ter for wash­ing and drink­ing. A cholera out­break would be dev­as­tat­ing. I un­der­stand that some­times it’s dif­fi­cult to ac­cess clean wa­ter but peo­ple should ex­er­cise ex­treme cau­tion to pro­tect their health. Peo­ple should also en­sure that they keep their wa­ter sources clean and pro­tected to avoid con­tam­i­nat­ing their wa­ter. — Yvette Banda

THE rains are on their way. Some ar­eas got a driz­zle over the week­end which means that peo­ple can be­gin to ex­pect more rains in the com­ing days. This is def­i­nitely wel­come par­tic­u­larly with the heat we have been ex­pe­ri­enc­ing. It is also great for the farm­ers who can now start to pre­pare their fields for plant­ing. I hope that we have a good rainy sea­son this year and we are able to yield a good crop in the har­vest next year. — Gerry Chitema

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Khama Bil­liat and his team Mamelodi Sun­downs for win­ning the Caf Cham­pi­ons League in tough con­di­tions. The team put on a spir­ited per­for­mance to hold their nerve against a team and fans who did ev­ery­thing they could to frus­trate the play­ers and en­sure they would lose. I wish Khama all the suc­cess and hope that he will be rar­ing to go come Af­con in Gabon next year. — Tawanda Gwenzi

FAC­TION­AL­ISM in Zanu-PF needs to come to an end. It is clear that this is caus­ing fis­sures not just at the top level but also among vot­ers. The re­cent elec­tion in Nor­ton in which Zanu-PF lost to Temba Mliswa was in part marred by fac­tion­al­ism and we can­not af­ford to go to an­other elec­tion with these prob­lems. Can the lead­er­ship not just pay lip ser­vice to this is­sue but also fix it. — Danai.
