MR Ed­i­tor, any trans­par­ent mea­sures to erad­i­cate cor­rup­tion in the pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tors au­gurs well for our econ­omy. Yes, the fin­gered have rights and can de­fend them­selves legally. But the law must law­fully deal with all crim­i­nals in this coun­try with­out fear or favour. Ev­ery­thing has a be­gin­ning and an end­ing in life. We should not fail to fight cor­rup­tion in this coun­try. — Cde Mzvinavhu, Harare.

THERE was clearly yet an­other sign of fail­ure by the city fa­thers and the Min­is­ter of Lo­cal Gov­ern­ment. How is it that a whole set­tle­ment is al­lowed to be es­tab­lished il­le­gally? It seems Gov­ern­ment con­tin­ues to side with the land barons and not with its peo­ple. Most of th­ese land barons are po­lit­i­cally con­nected, and as such, they will sim­ply go scot-free. Peo­ple con­tinue to lose their hard earned cash via bo­gus hous­ing co-op­er­a­tives be­cause the Gov­ern­ment is not do­ing enough to pro­tect peo­ple from th­ese crooks and pro­vide de­cent hous­ing for its peo­ple. — Ed­ward Chi­famba, Nor­ton.

THE 100 000 stands for civil ser­vants are a wel­come de­vel­op­ment. How­ever, we call for trans­parency in this process be­cause it may end up be­ing hi­jacked and not ben­e­fit­ing the civil ser­vants. Let’s have a com­put­erised data­base that de­tects any fraud­u­lent at­tempts of dou­ble dipping and try­ing to swin­dle the sys­tem. — Jona Dube, Mutare. MDC-T as the ma­jor op­po­si­tion po­lit­i­cal party in the coun­try is only show­ing that they have slid fur­ther down po­lit­i­cally. They should be full of prom­ise — so that if one day they come to power then we know we have real lead­ers and not clowns who lie on Par­lia­ment benches as a way of ex­press­ing them­selves. Why be­have like touts? Even Mor­gan Ts­van­gi­rai should be ashamed. Chamisa, their vice pres­i­dent should also be ashamed in­deed! — Cde Jairos Tap­fuma, Harare.
